Summary

Guild Wars 2 is the first proper sequel in the popular Guild Wars franchise, and changes the recipe from the old games. ArenaNet are updating not just the Guild Wars franchise, but the MMORPG genre as a whole with Guild Wars 2.

Everything in Guild Wars 2 has been built to let the player have fun, and everything you know from old MMOs and the old Guild Wars games as well, have been put to the test, to see if they are actually fun, and how they can be improved. The result is an impressive game, that defies many existing conventions in the genre, all in the name of making Guild Wars 2 the best MMO in a long time. These improvements include things like:

- A dynamic world. Quests as you know them are gone, and instead there are events. Events are real time events that happen in the game, that you can join as they happen, and depending on the outcome, the world will change accordingly and a new event will be started from that.

- The personal story. Guild Wars 2 brings the storytelling of RPGs into the MMO realm, and has a story filled with choices that allow you to play through the game many times and see different storylines and twists every time.

- True cooperative play. Any person you meet in Tyria is a potential ally, as you no longer need to join a group with someone to play with them. You also recieve the same rewards in play when you play several people together as you would when you play alone, so no one can steal kills or loot from you.

- No more DPS/healer/tank setups. Guild Wars 2 has no dedicated healing profession, and every profession is built so they can provide support for their allies. Professions are extremely versatile, and this allows for a truly unique play style.

It's a great game specialy for pvp & wvw, but lacks in pve contents. Beautiful graphics (high requests), sharp control, repetitive music & effects, abusive ban politic (they kick you off before to check if your infraction its true :s lol), the 8 professions are very well balanced and diferenced but for pvp mesmers & thiefs are op and in pve whitout doubt guardians are prety op. You can reach to maximun lvl very fast and easy, its easy to get equipment and all max lvl pjs have the same amount of stats and you can specialize at your wish. I only recomend this game for PvP & WvW

Nem, people complain about every single game out there. In general, people seem to be really please about GW2. Much more so than TERA

errorrpwns, i'm only playing TERA because GW2 failed to deliver. You know what im saying is true. I just had the guts to say it first. Go in the official on fan forums and you will see. People are bored and the fans recommend playing the game less to cure the boredom. If thats not a hint that the game is incredibly broken i dont know what is. It is just hype, there is no depth in the game. I'm a huge GW1 fan and i really wanted this game to be awesome, but it just isnt.

Digital sales are really taking over the world. I wonder why the consoles are so incredibly far behind.
