This expansion pack requires that players have at least one of the previous Guild Wars campaigns and at least one character at level 20. If you want to play Eye of the North (EotN), you must already have Guild Wars: Prophecies, Guild Wars: Factions, and/or Guild Wars: Nightfall installed or purchase at least one of them now.

PREVIOUS CAMPAIGNS
(1) Guild Wars: PROPHECIES has a good story line and is also the most natural "prequel" for the story in Eye of the North. However, leveling to level 20 in Prophecies is comparatively slow and reaching the city of Lion's Arch (where you can access the new region in EotN) will take you many hours of concentrated (though enjoyable) play.
(2) Guild Wars: FACTIONS is the quickest of the campaigns in which to level up to level 20. It also has the best story of the three campaigns, although some players did not like Factions as well as the other two campaigns. I enjoyed the campaign's Asian theme and locations, although I found the missions in Factions to be much more challenging than in Prophecies.
(3) Guild Wars: NIGHTFALL introduces Heroes (customizable non-player characters), which are very helpful as you level your character, but has the weakest storyline of the three campaigns (it is still a good story, however). I also found the leveling to be a bit slower in Nightfall than in Factions.

WHAT'S GOOD ABOUT EYE OF THE NORTH
Everything that I appreciate about Guild Wars is in EotN:
(1) It has an intriguing story, punctuated by entertaining and often amusing cut scenes (mini-movies). The story is also divided into three main "arcs", allowing players to go this way or that in the story line, as they so choose.

First, you must understand that GW:EN is not a chapter, and is not trying to be. Instead, it's a giant collection of extra material for very experienced characters. Almost everything here is repeatable, with sizable rewards and lots of skills/titles/other ways to become more powerful. People will tell you it's short, but that's just the story line. The story itself IS a little short, though it's also quite good and the bits in the Charr homelands (and the bonus quests with Gwen) are wonderfully nostalgic for players of the original Prophecies. However, in addition to a main plotline that's basically 12 missions long (about the length of Factions but without the intermediary questing that made that very short chapter seem longer than this) there are a full 18 massive multilayer dungeons. Each dungeon has it's own plot (or in some cases plots), has sizable rewards and secrets, and takes several hours to complete. Add to that an (ever increasing) pile of quests that aren't accessible until after you've complete pieces of the main story and no one could seriously claim there's not a ton of fun things to do here.

The game is still gorgeous (even moreso, really), the new heroes are excellent and the minigames are fun. There aren't a lot of new skills, but what's here does create some very interesting possibilities when combined with what's in the other chapters.

All in all, this is a must buy for anyone that enjoys Guild Wars. It's a great collection of content for the level 20 character that's done it all, and if you're a fan of the game what more could you want?

I've been playing GW since shortly it came out and have bought every campaign and expansion and have been generally very happy with it. I wish I could say the same for Guild Wars: Eye of the North (GWEN). First off, let's start with the good things:

1. Tons of eye-candy. Tons of attention was paid to making the dungeons et al. look amazing. There are gas traps that shoot out amazing fountains of poison, there are cogs and wheels in motion, etc. It is very well done in the graphics dept.

2. The story line is really good. It ties in various factions from previous campaigns.

3. Tons of new PvE skills. There are new Title tracks and skills to go with them (Norn, Dwarf, and Asura) with benefits for displaying the title (similar to Lightbringer track from Nightfall). There are also standard skills you can buy for PvP and PvE from a skill trainer as well, but by and large, the new skills are on the Title tracks, which also means they can't be used in PvP.

Now for why I am disappointed in GWEN:

1. Dungeons - These were touted to be oh-so-amazing things to explore. Well, they are in an entirally visual way. The problem that arises is that most dungeons are a pain in the rear. You basically have to meta for each specific dungeon and if you don't ahead of time, expect to finally reach the boss at the end of the dungeon after 2-3 hours fighting your way there and find out that you have no way of beating the boss, and will have to start all over. There are some simple puzzles in dungeons which I will say is a good thing, but they are childishly simple. There not even to the level of say Knights of the Old Republic series (whose hardest puzzle was a modified Towers of Hanoi).
