[VG] Guild Wars 2 tops the charts across Europe - Page 3

post #21 of 151
This game is very fun in a casual sort of way, I suppose. The bugs are so numerous and game breaking for me right now that I only played about 10 minutes today before I gave up. It looks good, is fun to play with friends, and has a distinctly non-wow feel to it, but I feel like they could have released it maybe a month later and fixed up some of these problems before I spent my money on two copies of it.

There are a few things that drive me up the wall though, namely the retarded camera and the server issues. This morning the lag was so bad my enemies were all invulnerable for 30-45 seconds and then it would suddenly catch up and I would be dead, I couldn't do any crafting because the windows wouldn't open, etc etc. Some areas (I'm looking at you black citadel) run at 2.5 fps for no particular reason, my class quest is bugged to hell and I can't advance, the list goes on and on. I may lay off it for a month or so and see if they fix it up.

What class are you? So far I have 68 hours on my eng and maybe 2 on my necro, Ive never run into anything youve described, Give it some time theyve been patching it everyday or maybe something is wrong with your ports.

The game is super easy to play and level in (as was Guild Wars 1).

I bought a copy, played it for awhile, but basically went back to mainly playing Rift. The guild I'm in plays both, so most likely I'll play both from time to time just to hang out with my friends, but beyond that, if I had to play just one Fantasy Game, GW2 wouldn't be it.

I have plenty of time on it, I have a level 50 thief and a 64 guardian. The first week was pretty good even with the volume of people, but it seems to be getting worse every patch not better.

I agree with everything he says in this review as a 74 Necro, and his videos are always entertaining. For anyone wondering about the game, just watch this.

Someone who never plays MMO's will have a bloody difficult time in GW2 mind you, at low levels they will die a LOT before they figure out how the combat works.
The whole dodging thing and almost everything being AoE-based certainly caught me by surprise.

GW2 is super easy to level and do quests. I only played about 6 months of Wow and that's all my MMO experience.

I think that video sold me on GW2 , i never got into MMO'S and i really tried getting into WoW and SWOTR but i just couldn't , also the i don't like paying monthly fee for a game it makes me fee obligated to play it.
After watching this video and doing some research on GW2 i feel like trying it , it looks promising.

Looks like I'm going to give GW2 a shot. I haven't tried an MMO in sometime last was Age of Conan which I got bored with fast after playing Everquest for years.
I was just overall bored with the MMO play style and paying 15 bucks a month.
Since then been hitting FPS like Battlefield 2142,Bc2, and BF3 but even those are now becoming boring.
Loved Obilvon and Skyrim but after doing all the quests and modding just to keep the game going I've been wanting more and GW2 mit fit the bill.thumb.gif

BF3 is probably the best game you mentioned in your FPS list. I have to say BF3 is a great game and it really immerses you into the large scale FPS experience probably also partly because of its excellent graphics.

I don't even have GW2 and my friends have been going crazy about it. They say that GW2 does not require hardcore grinding and emphasizes skill.

GW2 has excellent graphics (I've seen the graphics and they are just atmospheric and breath-taking). Much better than WoW and considerably better than SWoTR which isn't surprising since GW2 came out recently.

I'll maybe buy it once the hype settles down if people are then still finding it such a great game.
Not gonna buy it immediatly, i still regret buying 2 guild wars 1 expansions, while not regretting 3 years of WoW subscription. (i played GW before WoW if you are wondering why i bought 2 expansions).
