THE GOOD: This MMORPG is great for the price of only $50 and no monthly fees; one of the greatest upsides. Don't get me wrong saying that people only play it because its cheap; the Graphics are pretty realistic, a greay sight with some beautiful images. I myself found Old Ascalon a bit gloomy because of the dark colors, but none the less I adored it.
The wide range of music is interesting to listen to, though my volume is usually turned off when playing, only because I prefer to listen to my music. But when I'm in the heat of a mission, the music from Guild Wars seems to help concentrate.
The storyline in PvE is one of the main things that attracted me; I won't give any spoilers, but it is one of the most original and creative I've ever seen. Combined with many plot twists, races(you can only play as humans though), and scenery, the main plot is spectacular.
Gameplay and battling are enjoyable. Its more strategic than other games. You only can get up to a maximum of level 20, so how you...
I think this is oen of the best mmo's. Anyone else? I like the fact that you don't need to pay to play like WoW. I also like that the story line plays a big part in the game. I really fond npthing wrong with the game. Right now I am on my way to Kryta. I can't wait to get to the underworld. I am a level 15 Necro/Ranger. My guild name is Knights of Osiris and yes I am the guild leader. If you would like to join I am holding guild tryouts every Sunday night at Lions Arch. So if you would like to join come there around 9 pm. My characters name is Foamy Master. I also have a question, can you get a tournament in RPG mode. If you know email me at firstname.lastname@example.org, or just e-mail me to get a hold of me to get together on guild wars. Well I think Area net did an awsome job and thats pretty much it.
This is one of the hottest games I have played this whole year - superb graphics and a soundtrack by NIN make this a great action romp. Some other users have diss'd the game cuz they say it's too short, or it doesn't have enough weapons.... forget what they say, cuz the game is freaking HARD, and the weapons that you have access to require some serious skill to really master, so all in all the game is tuff to beat, and not at all suitable for pansies. Two thumbs way up!This is one of the hottest games I have played this whole year - superb graphics and a soundtrack by NIN make this a great action romp.

THE GOOD: Stunning graphics Interesting back story Rewards planning and strategy No monthly fee No lag Excellent gameplay
THE BAD: Mediocre documentation Restrictive movement Minor graphics glitches Hard to figure out the true value of items and what they're used for Communication with others met while playing (minor nit)
SUMMARY: This game is very different from the other MMORPGs on the market. First and formost is the fact that there is no monthly fee. One thing that stopped me from playing the other online games was I felt I was getting ripped off when a company made me pay for their game to install it and then pay again every month for the "privledge" of actually playing it. With Guild Wars you buy the game once, go online to play for free. You have the option to buy future expansions online, but it's not mandatory. The second thing I didn't like about the other games was way you HAD to play an enormous number of hours to acquire the levels, skills and goodies nececessary to be competitive. I...
THE GOOD: 1. Dont have to pay monthly fees and i mean NEVER 2. Easy to learn and fun game to play with friends 3. Huge wide worlds 4. Fun player vs player
THE BAD: 1. Sometimes you can get lost for a while 2. More for people who dont suck at video games no offense 3. Low level players can defeat you if they are lucky enough
SUMMARY: This game i think has lots of detailed graphics and while you play it its carefree because you dont have to pay for any fees and you can play as much as you want. It also has a system unique to itself and I find awesome the primary and secondary classes(unlike some games) Theres over 120 spells and all of them are unique.. areanet will keep updating for free with new places to visit and new weapons and armor. I definiteley reccomend this game for anyone who wants to enjoy a expanse rpg with many diffrent types of creatures and places to explore
