-no mounts, zepplins, etc; instead you have waypoints that you "discover" and then you can fast travel for a little copper or silver. there are also portals for travel to far away hubs
-character customization is huge; from hair and clothing to story line. you can even give yourself a first and last name (for you RPers out there)
-the visuals for spells, fireworks, environments, etc are just WAY better. i have been playing an elementalist (like a mage on steroids) for over a month, and some spells are so cool that they still make me smile and laugh
-the economy is set up such that it discourges flooding the market with produced goods (or anything).Read more ›
Combat is fast and exciting, with a wide range of combinations you can use. There is no "best" weapon for a specific class or best talent tree. You can really customize your talents and weapons to suit how you want to play the game. The "Holy Trinity" of tank, DPS, and healer is thrown out the window. Instead, you really need to have solid situational awareness and pay attention to what NPCs and monsters are doing. While the Guardian profession has a few abilities to pull aggro, for the most part you really can't "tank" in this game. So each player participating in an event needs to be paying attention. All professions have some healing options available to them and can resurrect fallen players during combat.Read more ›
I've been playing computer games since at least Wolfenstein and role-playing games before Final Fantasy I. Do not buy into the EXCELLENT!!! reviews given to this game by the mainstream PC game review sites--the industry has been taken over by payola. This game is slightly-above-average, at best. Read enough reviews from IGN/Gamespot/GT and you'll start to see repeats of buzz words that were distributed by the PR hype press kit (dynamic events, no holy trinity). The almost-funny irony is that these "features" were the game's largest cons, which I'll explain below.
PROS: First, Guild Wars 2 is a technically superb game--important especially when millions of players log in simultaneously and characters interact. I did not encounter a single bug or even a single blip in my experience in all of the different aspects of the game. Second, the graphics are fantastically rendered, and the virtual world is absolutely enormous, well-designed, and load fluidly. If you are a gamer who solely enjoys the exploration aspect of MMORPG's, then you'll have plenty to do.Read more ›

Guild Wars 2 is an ok MMORPG because it doesn't have monthly fees. Endgame leaves some to be desired but there is definitely things to do. Pvp is pretty great. Read morePublished 3 months ago by Todd Henry
