  • Review Score:9.3

    Don't be swayed by the neigh-sayers.

    So many reviews for such a great game. To begin with the game is visualy stunning, yet runs even on my modest bargain PC. The audio is nice, if not a bit repetitive. The gameplay is amazing. However, you get what you... Read Full Review

    Diablo? No. World of Warcraft? No. MMORPG? Not really. Action Hack-and-Slash with limited RPG Elements? Basically.

    Those looking for a game to replace other traditional MMORPGs, look away. While some can really not find ANYTHING wrong with Guild Wars, theres still the fact that, in its core, its not really an MMORPG. One of the neate... Read Full Review

    ...even if you stop playing once you finish, the journey will be worth it!

    Let me start off by saying this is one of the most refreshingly fun games I have played in a while. The game allows you to choose between a slew of different character classes with abilities that are, for the most part, ... Read Full Review

    Possibly the best multiplayer game I have ever played.

    Bringing some fresh wind to the MMORPG Genre. Well-designed, and nicely implemented.

    The creators of Guildwars have surely taken lots of risks by offering an absolutely fee-free MMORPG. Thanks to the absolutely nice design of characters, the new features within gameplay energy/mana-structures, and th... Read Full Review

    It just can't pass the superiority of WoW.

    This game has a lot of content for the "no monthly charges" feature. And yeah, i loved playing it. The world it offered was magnificent, but it almost seemed like there were no other players out there with you. It didnt... Read Full Review
