Summary: Just wanted to add some clarification to Pete's comment. The GW2 site clearly states that only pre-purchase editions of GW2 are
eligible for beta access and the 3 day head start. The only physical
pre-purchase edition sold was the CE that sold out months ago and you had to pay
up front then, hence “pre-purchase”.
"Possibly the best MMORPG out since World of Warcraft"

Summary: I'm going to keep this as short as I can. I've had a bit of a play around in the current Beta Weekend. ( July 20th-22nd
The game runs smoothly on the medium high settings. ( For all you guys out there
who are getting PC lag make sure shadows aren't maxed out ) The controls feel good. There is a sort of auto targeting, but it has not
proven to be a problem as of yet. There is cleaving, so all enemies in front of
you who are in range will be hurt by your melee attacks.
Summary: If you thought you where getting the 3 days head start and in game content
through mightyape you where wrong, iv had a chat with a staff member and his
game manger says they never offered in there “special offer” that there was
a 3 day head start, in game content or even a bata code (witch I got a bata
code from them) very disappointed with mightyape for this
Summary: Having played Guild Wars since the original beta (8 years ago) I have been
waiting for a long time to see Guild Wars 2. Anet's developer's blog hinted
that this would be a different kind of MMO. Taking the best of WoW, Guild Wars
and other MMO systems and adding something new. It has delivered. With multiple races and classes to play each character is
faced with a personal storyline based on the choices you make.
Summary: I have been waiting for this game since i first seen the trailer and
pre-ordered as soon as i could so i can play all the betas. This is one of the
best games i have ever played and enjoyed. If you love mmorpg's then you will
love this game. It is huuuuuge. You have everything you could want in a game.
You pve, pvp, gvg and the new world vs world which is crazy.
Summary: Guild Wars 2 is a new Massively Multiplayer Online Game set in the world of
Tyria. The Elder Dragons five deadly, destructive, immortal beings have awoken
and they want to destroy the world and its peoples. And you the player have a
role to play with the rest of the world in stopping the imminent
destruction. I got to play as a Elementalist in the Guild Wars 2 Beta weekend just past.
I have the say that it is shaping up to be a very sleek and pretty game.

Summary: I'll keep my review short. I've played a lot of MMOs in the past, starting way back with Ultima Online
when it launched in 1997. Of all the games from then till now, I've never
enjoyed the leveling process as much as I did in guildwars two. The questing
system is very unique and the dynamic events are extremely engaging. Each zone
has it's own completions which make for a very enjoyable gaming experience.
