What Gamespot Users have to say about Guild Wars Factions

  • Review Score:7.2

    A good expansion to the GW series...

    This game is still a good mmo-rpg. Though factions did not get enough changes in game-engine, just skills and maps... PVE; Not good, the pve is very hard because its so big and it makes it hard to invite people to yo... Read Full Review

    While slightly of a lesser quality than the first Guild Wars, it still KICKS WOW'S @$$.

    Like the first Guild Wars, Factions still sports the great mission selection and gameplay, but the inability to jump and fall still hinders the game. Factions follows in core Guild Wars footsteps almost to a tee, but ... Read Full Review

    Not a bad game, but definitely lacking. I found my self unimpressed.

    While I'm glad that Factions came out and "expanded" the Guild Wars universe a bit, I found myself feeling empty handed while playing the game. GOOD: The good things about Factions are pretty much the same things tha... Read Full Review

    MMORPG?

    Guild Wars: Factions isn't your usual online game. For a start, it's free. One payment and it's yours for life. This is a good enough reason to pick it up, but its far from the only reason. As soon as you enter this w... Read Full Review

    Factions is a great game, but I will truthfully tell you its not as good as Nightfall or Prophecies.

    Since I reviewed both Nightfall and Prophecies I thought I should probably review Factions. Factions brings to us 2 new proffesions the Ritualist and the Assasin which both bring into the game more fun! They are both for... Read Full Review

    Great online game, Diablo meets World of Warcraft!

    Yes that is right World of Warcraft and Diablo! Oh wait did I say WoW on the GW board??! Sorry but this game is exactly like them. As in your in a huge world with millions of people, but as soon as you leave a town or ci... Read Full Review

    Not as good as the first, but still good.

    The Good: Same great presentation and gameplay as the first. Forces you into light PvP gameplay in some parts. 2 new classes are great and well-balanced. The Bad: Story is a bit lackluster. Story missions are a bit s... Read Full Review

    How do you improve an already good thing? Just ask Anet

    Game Play: With the addition of another continent to explore, as well as new alliance battles the "expansion" adds quite a bit to the old formula. However as with the original GW, Factions is riddled with some of the sa... Read Full Review

    A good game, but not as good as the first chapter.

    Gameplay: 7 Okay, finally this is my review about Guild Wars: Factions after playing Guild Wars (Prophecies Campaign). The Good: There are quite a few things that has been added in Factions, the guild alliances, fact... Read Full Review
