The only thing that stops the dust is the rain. It’s a sweet reprieve, but there is no middle ground. The land is either as dry as the Betty Ford clinic, or as wet as the ocean floor. Everything can be seen from the ridge overlooking Armadillo as John Marston gently bounces along atop...

Guild Wars 2 Review Log 04: Down Town!

Posted on Tuesday, August 28 @ 16:30:00 PST by

As I began to feel underleveled in the areas just outside Queensdale, I decided to use the Asura Gates to hop over to another race's starting area and grind away for an hour or two. Every other races opening act seemed to be laid out similarly to my own. A slope downhill opening into plains, a bunch of low-level enemies.

When I found myself on the other side surrounded by Asura, I struggled to understand exactly what I was looking at. It is a totally alien landscape, strikingly foreign to my own. Several stories stacked on top of each other and portals and offshoots littered the corners of the base.

I... felt like I was experiencing culture shock. I had no idea where to go and opened the map screen. I opted to roll a new character to learn the lay of the land from the outset and retreated to friendlier territories... like the Charr.

Yes, it's true, Guild Wars 2 has a gorgeous world, but the game is a huge leap forward for the genre in other ways. Missions encourage players to buss about like bees, swarming on bigger possible bounties, and dispersing when all the Centaurs are dead.
