Ten Ton Hammer: Reviewing the reviewed in newer, cooler, BETTER ways.

Although it's been several years since the release of the original Guild Wars, the game remains one of the most popular MMOGs on the market today.

Even the art styling of the character models borders on that "anime" sort of Asian styling that goes hand in hand with almost any game that plops onto Western shores. Thankfully, ArenaNet didn't skimp on the options available to players, and there were still a more than adequate number of faces, traits, and styles to choose from.
