Summary: I've been playing Guild Wars for something like 5 years now, and I can say that it's definitely one of the most solid online RPG games out there. I remember back in 2005, looking at this game and thinking "Oh... Guild Wars... that sounds cliche" and never giving it a second look. Well after playing a free 14 hour trial, my mind was changed. This game was made by a bunch of developers who worked on Blizzard's Diablo franchise, and you can tell the influences right away.
Summary: The graphics are fantastic, and now online play is free when you own the game. I played my online trial and had a blast and could not wait to own it. Character control is easy to manage. Gameplay is smooth. Tons of fun!
Summary: I have this for myself and my kids enjoy it so I decided to get a copy for them so we can play together. When finishing a mission it plays a cut scene that explains the story line...my kids won't let me skip through them. There is so much to explore and do you never get board with it. I like that this edition comes with a few upgrades as well. It really helps to have decent weapons and a permanent help with the Fire Imp when you're a low level.
I love this game. Doesn't need much to run really well.

Summary: The graphics are amazing considering it was released in the early 2000s and it doesn't take a lot of computer power to run it. Although good internet is crucial so your FPS [frames/second] doesn't get so bad it appears you're teleporting. I bought the game because my boyfriend had it, and it's fun to play RPGs with people you know from around the corner.
Summary: Everything is great about this game. Start with the fact that the online account and play is completely free. The graphics are incredible and the quests are challenging. It is easy to learn and get into without having read a lot of the manual or memorize cryptic commands. The camera view control using the right mouse button is a nice feature. This game is similar to the Dungeon Siege games though I played all of those offline. I highly recommend Guild Wars.
Summary: There are lots of fantasy RPG's, on one hand this game sticks to the blueprint, large world to roam and explore, tons of quests and things to collect, but there are elements in this game that really make the game special. First it has a story line, lots of online RPG's do not. Second, the graphics are top-notch, although the boot up time for the game is seconds. Third, is the lack of fees. Why should I have to pay for a game I already bought? Exactly.
Summary: What a game!!! I've been on Diablo 2, and playing it happily until I got this game. I am amazed at the graphics, the story, and all the things that go on in this game. I feel like I've been in the dark ages.
