What Gamespot Users have to say about Vanguard: Saga of Heroes

  • User Rating 9.5

    Great game, worth revisiting! I'll explain why inside!

    First, a little about me. I may have easily been the most hardcore, blindly enthusiastic fanboy of Vanguard during its rough and controversial production. I developed the once booming Gamespot Vanguar...

    Good solid MMORPG. It is 4 months old so be prepared to deal with some bugs. Other than that I think the game is great.

    Vanguard: Saga of Heroes is like I said, new. So do not be surprised to find a quest or two that will not properly work. On the upside the economy on most servers is very balanced with a lack of price...

    When you first install the game, go through the initial patches, and finally get to the character creation, the game is off to a great start. Highly customizable characters by race, class, and even t...

    With a lot of hype prior to launch, Vanguard: Saga of Heroes fails to deliver on most fronts.

    Vanguard could have been a great next generation MMORPG if Sigil hadn't run out of money and released it in a broken state. The game includes three "spheres" of gameplay, Adventuring, Crafti...

    A MUST for any MMORPG fan!

    After trying WoW, LOTRO, EQ2, FFXI, Tabula Rasa, and POTBS I found this game's collector's edition on Ebay for only $17 brand new. Surely this game must really suck if it's collectors edition is goin...

    The best mmorpg I have ever played but not enough else have.

    Rated on September 03, 2009 by NineFaces

    I love the look of this game, the feel of this game, the challenge and the unbelievable sound of this game. It is so rich and immersive but the problem I have is that it depends heavily on grouping a...

    After a break for a year, there's lot of improved things to be seen

    Rated on April 16, 2008 by Maagi

    In short : Positive : - Even with the Riftway system, the world is still massive - Griffons/Wyverns. A definetely a plus for travelling, and cheap too - Due to the massive world and many start...

    IMO, I believe Vanguard is Great! They do have a few small bugs, in-game to be corrected.

    Rated on May 23, 2007 by DarkRellic

    In my opinion I believe Vanguard is Great! They do have a few small bugs, in-game to be corrected. I think they did a nice job with graphics, sound, etc. However if you have an older computer or a com...

    Not at all what I expected - has potential though.

    Rated on June 03, 2007 by Buglette

    I had been following Vanguard for quite some time prior to its release and from what I had read it looked to be a promising game. The large amount of races and classes really interested me, I enjoy a ...
