In the Shadow of Dragons Legends Become Real

For generations, strife and chaos raged across Tyria as the great races competed and warred against each other. Then the dragons awoke. The all-powerful Elder Dragons rose from beneath earth and sea, wreaking havoc on a global scale. Great cities crumbled before their might. Coastlines flooded. Lush forests burned. Tyria was forever altered. Now, the undead legions of the deathless dragon Zhaitan surge across the land, hungry for the destruction of the free races of Tyria: the Charr, a ferocious race of feline warriors; the Asura, magical inventors of small size and great intellect; the Norn, towering shapeshifters from the frigid north; the Sylvari, a mysterious race of mystical plant folk; and the Humans, an embattled but resilient people. The time has come for the free races to stand together against the rising tide of evil. Magic, cold steel, and the deeds of heroes will determine the fate of Tyria.

5.0 out of 5 stars OUTSTANDING October 23, 2013
Platform for Display:PC Download| Edition:Heroic Edition|Verified Purchase
Have played World of Warcraft since 2006, and was a loyal player until Cataclysm started ruining the game and Mists just killed it, players became so nasty and disgusting toward each other it just made playing the game repulsive. GW2 was recommended to me and it has exceeded my expectations, The game encourages players to help each other and prevents them from being able to do much of anything to harm one anothers play experience. PVP is excellent and the game is so much more visually stunning than WoW it's like comparing Loony Toons to Avatar. Cancelled my WoW sub and haven't looked back, this game is fantastic.

5.0 out of 5 stars Simply A Great Game with No Monthly Charges November 20, 2013
Platform for Display:PC Download| Edition:Heroic Edition|Verified Purchase
47 yr old gamer here. My youngest brother hated this game, his son got him back into it and they dragged me along. I'm glad they did. I had little hopes for this franchise as I wasn't a big gw1 fan, but the game world is huge, the quests are fun and the community - at least on our server - is awesome.

5.0 out of 5 stars Happy Gamer December 27, 2013
Platform for Display:PC Download| Edition:Heroic Edition|Verified Purchase
I was directed here by a fellow gamer who told me this game code was $20 less than the GW2 website. Sweet! I placed my ordered, and skipped the download section and just copied and pasted my code from the "Your Games and Downloads" into the GW2 website and downloaded the client from them. Easy peasy and I was online and playing in no time.

Ignore that it says PC, I have a MacBook and using the steps above, got the MAC client with zero problems.

The game is superb. I was an avid WoW gamer for years and this game seems ot have all the fun with zero of the drama and frustrations. No kill ganking, no camping spawns, you get rewarded for passing by and helping fellow gamers, its awesome.

4.0 out of 5 stars The MMO, upgraded February 7, 2014
Platform for Display:PC Download| Edition:Heroic Edition|Verified Purchase
I'll be honest: I entered the world of Guild Wars 2 carrying a healthy burden of skepticism. Having played and dumped other MMOs before, including THE MMO (you know which one I mean), so I had already been disillusioned by fetch quests... endless fetch quests, and endless returns to NPCs to deliver the goods. Those plus other brands of grinding, kill stealing, UIs cluttered with a million buttons, and low level areas forever grayed out and useless to me turned me off to fantasy MMOs for quite a while.

Guild Wars 2 isn't a drastic reimagining of the fantasy MMO; let's be clear on that point. The classes and races are fun but recognizable as, respectively, warriors, mages, and rogues; brutes, elves, humans, and gnomes. We've all been there, done that, bought the t-shirt.

What GW2 does well is to improve upon the little MMO annoyances that build over time.

Quests: Don't even have to talk to an NPC for their quest to pop up, which it will as soon as you enter the area. All the quests have different completion methods, so you can kill monsters and steal their (insert body parts here), or you can pull x number of levers, or you can revive NPC allies, or you can collect some medicinal plants, or you can go for some organic combination of the above. Items don't usually have to be delivered to the quest giver to receive the reward, which is delivered through the 'mail' system.

Grinding: Realtime, urgent quests called 'events' pop up in certain areas from time to time. Sometimes you have to defend (insert object here) from waves of enemies; sometimes you have to kill a boss; sometimes you have to rescue allies from captivity, et cetera. These really help cut down on the feeling of grinding and make you feel like you're having an impact on the world.

4.0 out of 5 stars This is a great game for a casual gamer. December 27, 2013
Platform for Display:PC Download|Edition:Heroic Edition
Guild Wars 2 is a well animated and beautiful game with plenty of areas to explore. Graphics are not quite as good as TERA, but the character models and texture quality are still crisp. Public events are exciting and help keep the pace of the game flowing. The game presents nearly all that you would be looking for in World of Warcraft but WITHOUT the monthly charges (seriously, who wants to pay a fee to play a game you've already bought?). The only gripe I have with the game is that there are no opposing factions as in WoW, so open world PvP is non-existent; however, the game does present plenty of PvP and WvW boards for players to choose from that are separate from the main PvE environment. Also, the profession classes are VERY strict in terms of what armor and weapons you can arm yourself with. You certainly will not have the freedom to equip any item, weapon, armor or spell your heart desires (such as in Skyrim); even WoW is more lenient. For those that say the game world is a bit small: Keep in mind that the game is only 1 year old and that future expansion packs are sure to remedy this. This is a great game for a casual gamer who is looking for a solid MMO without the mandated monthly $14.99 fees.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Game December 31, 2013
By Gx3
Platform for Display:PC Download| Edition:Heroic Edition|Verified Purchase
I really enjoy this game compared to a lot of the other MMO games out. The graphics are very good (but fairly CPU intensive with all the settings on ultra, I have an FX8350 clocked at 4.63 ghz and it runs great). No monthly fee is another great feature of this game. I highly recommend giving this game a try if you enjoy MMOs but don't have 40 hours a week to spend playing. You can have a great time in this game playing from 5-15 hours a week and make good progress.
