This is the best MMO I ever played, and one of the best games all round too. 10/10

This game is really slow but quite enjoyable at the same time, I would be careful though, they locked my account out when I got a new hard drive

People vote for no reason on here mate. You cant really take notice of the 'heat' IMO, especially with gaming.

worth giving a go for that price

You will only be able to play on NA servers I believe.

You sure they locked it because of a new hard drive and not because you was doing something naughty in game? Seems very odd they would lock an account because you changed hard drive.

It doesn't matter anyway because you can guest on any server you like it just means if you play WvW your score wont be added to that server. Such a wicked game, if anyone is undecided watch Angry Joe's review, and know that it has only got better since

Yeah don't have to guest at all. Just start the game and choose EU as your server as long as you don't have any characters. Happy days. Works out around £15

Ah right yeah I forgot about that, was a long time ago that I did first time set up. This game will consume you if you get into the 100% map completion (like I did haha)

Does this game have an ending, or does it go on forever?

You reach level 80 and then just play whatever you like, whether it be PvE or PvP or WvW which is huge battles between servers and a little pve mixed in with it. The content gradually opens to you as you progress, it's not like WoW where it's a race to the end game.

Might start playing this again...
Need to break away from LoL -.-

Can you play this with just a mouse like Dota or Xcom, or does the game require a lot of keyboard control?

Its tough to play with just a mouse, I've tried many times with my kids on my lap and it always results in death

Thanks for that. Will probably skip it for now as I don't like dying

Haha yeah it does require a lot of movement, you need to be on your toes in the harder regions/dungeons and in pvp. Have you considered a gaming mouse with lots of buttons? That might help

I've had my eye on one but think I'll wait until one goes go cheap. They don't look overly comfortable to be honest but I haven't tried one before.

Bargain

Great game (with no subscription fees whatsoever) for a very nice price = Heat.

I finally took a look at TESO, and Angry Joe REALLY doesn't like it, it looks awful from his perspective, and I remember watching his GW2 review when it came out but I was too busy with Uni at the time so I couldn't buy it.

How is the game now? I'm seriously considering it at this price, but I don't want to get into it and it be dead and empty like a lot of games end up being a couple of years later. Any serious issues with things/updates since release? Any reason to not buy it for this price?

Great game and not dead. I'm on aurora glade eu server and it's not dead

There is so many different ways to waste your time on this game. heat ^^

Some one can buy mine if they like! never played it since a month after I bought it! :).

The cheapest I remember seeing it, but don't assume you'll enjoy it just because you loved the first one; they're very different games and there is still a hardcore on the first Guild Wars who detest GW2.

been wanting to try this for ages!!!

How much

Paying the £17.49 is the easy part. It's the fee you pay the time vampire that bites!
The first GW was epic and I imagine this is too.

If you like PvE then this is the game for you. PvP however is lacking.... GW1's PvP is a lot lot better.

You've summed it up pretty well.
Make your own judgement by watching trailers or livestreams, or waiting for a free weekend.

Not voting hot or cold but this game is nowhere near as good as the original guildwars, most of the things that made guildwars great were removed in guildwars2.
eg: no multiclass builds, no autoattack (this effects and limits builds even more)

There's also the lack of inventory slots + bank storage.
After playing for a while you will no doubt fill your bank and inventory. You can then buy more bank tabs for £6.40 (30 slots)
I would think most people who are actively playing guildwars2 will have paid for some sort of bank or inventory expansions.

You can autoattack with your q no? I think its Ctrl+click or right click on q to set it on loop.
Havent played much recently though, preferred GW1 and my account got hacked with all the security issues surrounding GW2 release date, so lost 7 years of gold :'(

It's not really autoattack tho
it just loops the first ability ( which can be holding a dagger/sword, swinging and hitting someone at range )

They removed autoattack and bound the majority of abilities/spells to weapons, limiting the way you can build your characters

Very good game, good price.

Yes I agree it is more limiting, still think looped q counts as an auto attack since you can just stand there and it'll do the work haha.

I really liked this game at first but found it boring once i leveled up and mapped everything. I had many leather bound books in gw1 and never found my grinding ocd in gw 2

It lacks a decent loot system IMO

Good deal this, had forgotten I bought this at launch and fired it up today. Not played it on my upgraded machine before, and with everything up full the game looks amazing, and the servers still seem busy as ever.
