After playing WoW for about six months I got bored and began to question paying a monthly fee for a game that I no longer used.
I cancelled my account and bought Guild Wars hoping for a refreshing MMORPG experience.
I was greatly disappointed. Even compared to WoW this game's story line is shallow. I found myself not caring about my character, his companions, or the world they inhabited within the first hour or two that I played. When I pick up a CRPG I expect a certain level of story/character development. Grinding for stat/skill and equipment upgrades is NOT what a role-playing game is about.
Unfortunately it is what Guild Wars is about, along with all the other MMORPGS I've played so far.
Gameplay: Same old grind... with a trivial skill-set twist
Graphics: Visually Impressive, for the first 30 minutes
Sound: Repetitive, Repetitive, Repetitive
Value: $50 & no online fee is cheaper than WoW, except WoW was fun for months
