Guild Wars

Strategy Informer
31 July 2007
  • Excerpt: Lately we've seen allot of MMORPG-s hitting the market, in the franchise caused by World of Warcraft. Many of those games went completely unnoticed, or have even been shut down (as we've seen with The Matrix Online and Asheron's Call 2). Guild Wars is not one of them. What the crew at Arenanet has to offer was fresh, and not just "another game in the line", but something quite different... read on, you'll find out what.

  • Excerpt: Guild Wars is an MMORPG set in a fantasy universe. I know, I know, it seems like there is a new one of these games launched every other week, but Guild Wars is actually different. First off, it’s free. Well, not free to purchase, but once you’ve paid to bring it home it’s free of monthly fees. You can play for hours every day or play once a week and the cost is still the same to you – nothing.

The Armchair Empire

  • Conclusion: satisfaction is difficult to beat. You and your party really feel good about the win, and happily pat each other on the back. Usually such strong sentiments of “Yay us!” can only be found when tackling notoriously strong end game bosses in an MMORPG, but just from the way that Guild Wars sends wave after wave of enemies at players it’s quite possible to feel this good right from level one to the game’s level cap at twenty.

Expert Review

Game Freaks 365
22 November 2005
  • Excerpt: It seems every now and then I'm drawn into something new, something that I am very thankful that I had a chance to play. Guild Wars is one of those games. Unlike most online role-playing games, Guild Wars tries to do something new and is very successful. On a side note, I consider myself very cheap (I'm that guy who stocks up on McDonald's ketchup for the next three years when he orders a milkshake).

MMORPG Free For All!

  • Excerpt: You know the scene; you're in a fantasy landscape, reminiscent of Austria and you're slashing your way through a field of swamp trolls. Hack slash, hack slash. Then you look up and ooh, umpteen characters, much like yourself, hacking and slashing their way through a field of swamp trolls. All of a sudden you're in a Kafkaesque nightmare and you've become a mindless cog in an even more mindless machine. Yes, that's right it's MMORPG syndrome.

Guild Wars: Prophecies

15 June 2005
  • Excerpt: There are a handful of Massively Multiplayer Online Role-Playing Games available today, and it is very easy to find yourself spending countless hours trying to level up or find that certain unique item. While there are popular MMORPG titles available now, such as World of Warcraft and Everquest 2, a recently released game titled Guild Wars can be found in this same elite class.

  • Excerpt: Guild Wars is a refreshing addition to the MMO genre that features plenty of role-playing and PvP fun that you won’t want to miss out on. The first thing you’ll notice about NCsoft’s latest forray into the MMO genre is that it’s not really an MMORPG. What appears on first glance to be another World of Warcraft is more actually the closest we’ll ever get to a Diablo Online.

  • Conclusion: Aside from those fairly minor issues, Guild Wars is a great game. Everyone can enjoy the easily accessible combat, the deep-as-you-want-to-go strategy elements of the skill and spell system and amazing visuals. The game appeals to so many different kinds of gamers for so many different reasons, it's no surprise that it's selling so many copies all across the world.
  • Pros: Great graphics, fun and engaging gameplay for all kinds of players, skill and spell system provides nearly endless strategy combinations;
  • Cons: Internet connection required to play, stiff character animation, targeting is sometimes annoying.
