"Eat your heart out WoW!"
This game is nothing short of amazing. This game has it all, it has the interaction of an MMORPG but it has the solitude of a stand alone RPG.
Graphics 10/10: They graphics in the world are amazing. The characters render beautiful, and they move and interact with the environment perfectly. The system requirements are low on this game but the graphics are still spectacular.
Sound 10/10: While I would go out on a limb and say that I think the sound could be better it still complements the world perfectly.
Gameplay 10/10: This is where the game struts its stuff. There is always something to do in this game. Whether you are on a quest or just wondering the wilderness, you can always find something to do. There are tons of quests to do, some yielding money, xp, items or skills. Also in the world you will run into people called collectors who will trade useless junk you pick up off monsters and give you cool stuff. The skills system is done very well... if you make a mistake you can fix it bu spending buy-back points. These points literally let you buy-back a mistake you made while leveling up.
Character Customization is a big thing in MMORPGs and this is the only place where i say the game has any fault... however they already announced that they will be fixing that in up and coming expansions. By far the coolest thing about guild wars is being able to make your own guild cheap... its only 100 gold. There are 6 professions to choose from. Each with there own unique abilities. later in the game you can also adopt a second profession. There is a lot to be said about each class... the easiest way to do it is... http://www.guildwars.com
While in town you can interact with other people, chat, group up and then set out into the wild to kill stuff. The world is not too overwhelming in size, but it is pretty darn big.
This game is a must own for everyone who loves RPGs period... If liked games like morrowind or any of the MMORPGs and are a fan of the fantasy setting this game is for you. And the best part is; ONLINE PLAY IS FREE!!!
