About Guild Wars

This is a very good game but has some flaws. When you play it you notice even though it is a MMORPG it is completely different and special in many ways. One of the differences is when you leave a town the only people in the wilderness is you and your party. I think this helps because it is a lot more fun than walking out and hearing a lot of  "LMAO ROFL I PWN LITLE N00BS11!!1!" Although this is nice it can be annoying because of the lack of people. The enviroment's graphics make up for everything though. When you step into the world it looks so real and lifelike.

Guilds

Another thing in the game is the guilds. This is a very good system but there are so many guilds it will be pretty hard to get your's famous. The guild halls make up for that though. A guild hall is huge and can be decorated with many different vendors. Once your guild is big enough you can start a guild war which is simply a battle between different guilds.

Customuzation

The character customuzation is pretty good but throughout your playing experience you probably will see at least one double of yourself in appearence. You can pick many different colors and styles of clothes which makes it a bit more broad. You can also customize your skill list which means you can pick which skills you have in your bottom list.

Skills

Skills play a huge part in this game and can turn the flow of battle for better or worse! A skill is much like a spell or power you obtain through skill points which you get every level up. Each skill does a different thing so there is no "best skill". You get nine skills at the bottom of the screen and can use each one when you please.

Enviroment

This is truly Guild Wars' strong suit and many people can just explore the caves and forest for days on end. In the enviroment you can fight a number of NPC's who can either be hostile and attack you right away or just let you pass by (until you attack them). Guild Wars has many different landscapes ranging from scorching inanhabitable deserts to luch canopy forests and it can take a very long time to ever explore it all.

Fighting

Fighting in this game can get repetitive but when you stare at the beauty of the graphics and how smooth the movement of the character is you hardly ever notice. The game is not filled with grinding like other games but focuses more on leveling up by quests.  The fighting can be ranged or melee depending on what race you are and what weapon you have.

Races

There are many different races that all have different strengths and weaknesses that can affect how you play them incredibly. In each race there is a class for it and you can also pick a subclass which means you can do that classes spells but not as good as them.

Quests

Quests are very important in Guild Wars because that is the main way for you to get experience points. There are many many many quests you can do and it should take you a very very long time until you get them all done. Some quests have cool cinematic videos and some just have text but almost all of them should keep you entertained.

 

There is my review for Guild Wars. I think its a great game and many people should like it but of course it is their oppinion.

Thanks!
