Summary: This wasn't my favorite expansion. You spend a big chunk of the midgame running around and around in a big, confusing city. Having played several characters through this campaign, there's just no way to do it efficiently, and running back and forth over the same ground gets really annoying.
Summary: I had just purchased this from Amazon a few days ago and have to say compared to Prophecies this campaign fell short in expectations and the story line is very weak. I guess that's why it was so inexpensive.
Summary: The collector's edition is worth the money, you get weapons for any of the starting class that turn out to be very nice weapons to start w/ and once they get the skills built up for all the effects on the weapons. I like this game as a stand-alone rpg but not that impressed as a "multi-player" game.
Summary: the game is excellent and the graphics are cool. What dissapointed me are all the extras,(map, poster etc.)they are of poor quality and actually it looks they only put them to get more money. I know that's the point of any special edition, but I would like to see someting better for the extra money.
Summary: Let's face facts--when you sign up with an online game, you're pretty much buying in for the long haul. As far as that investment goes, if I'm reviewing the Guild Wars franchise as a whole, I still think you're probably playing the best game of its kind that's available on the market.
Summary: Lets hope they get Nightfall right. Make the PvE part take longer to lvl and beat like in Prophecies, but keep the nice improvements to PvP and add more mods like they added Alliance Battles to Factions
Pros: The PvP has improved and more balanced and fun, and the addition of Alliance Battles is cool and alot of fun. Some cool looking new skins for weapons and armor. The 2 new classes are alot of fun.
Cons: More cons that pros in this game to me. The PvE part of the game is alot weaker than Prophecies. You lvl WAY to fast and the story is WAY to short. And the main foe is talked up to be a super tuff guy just to turn out a wimp. I also think the graphics are alot better in the original. And so far t...
Summary: It is a good expansion to the original, and should be priced accordingly, but thats what it is... Anet states that this is a stand alone, it feels about half of the original and only comes with 2 new classes.
Pros: Very good PvP game. No monthly fee. Runs easy on lower spec comps.
Cons: Needs improvement on the skill balancing to make it more fun and less repetitive in PvP. PvE missions are boring and repetitive. Very linear in missions, run from green arrow A to green arrow B. Not as big as the original game Prophecies.
Summary: The graphics are stunning, even better than they were in Prophecies, and that is really the best aspect of this game. Factions was marketed as a stand alone game but it lacks content and most experienced Guild Wars players view it as an expansion.
Summary: Again, I'm glad I bought it. I just have some reservations.
Pros: I had Guild Wars (Prophasies) and it was a good game. Mainly because there was no monthly fee. There was alot lacking, aspecially in the way of PvP, large group battles, competitive spirit in missions, and the fact that people play in the level 20 mindset, and yet only like 10% of the map was pla...
Cons: The game is not worth the cash, however I know newegg will always be a good place to shop. I'm glad I bought Factions at Newegg and I'm pleased to have it. I just feel like this is going to be a pattern. There will be a new expansion every sixth months and I don't think I can rationalize that rat...
