  • Nightfall Reviewd at Women Gamers

    WomenGamers.com has posted a review of the latest Guild Wars Expansion. See what they think of Nightfall...

    For 2006, Guild Wars gets my "Top MMORPG" mark for the second time. Arena Net has taken great pains to help keep their games from having a "slimy" community. Guild Wars still gets my highest marks for a "safer" environment from verbal abuse than several of the other games that I play for reviews. Although that isn't saying much anymore.

    More is just a click away.

  • A Little Rain Must Nightfall

    MMORPG.com has posted their review of Guild Wars Nightfall. Keep reading to see what their thoughts are...

    As with Factions, Nightfall adds two new character classes: The spear throwing Paragon and the whirling Dervish. Both classes come with new skills and weapons, although some feel very familiar, like they slapped a fresh coat of paint on some old skills. The Paragon is a good ranged damage dealer, and also has a variety of buffs for himself and his party. The Dervish fights in close with scythes and damage dealing spells.

  • An illuminating dissection of the latest chapter in the MMOG saga

    Computer and Video Games has posted a review of Guild Wars latest expansion today. See what they had to say about Nightfall!

    n fact, at times Guild Wars: Nightfall is a bit hard to call an MMORPG. It has all of the hallmarks of the genre, but at times it feels all too similar to old-man Diablo II mixed with two-parts EverQuest and three-parts of fantasy-cliché. Playable as a standalone part of the Guild Wars world, Nightfall mimics Factions by bringing two new classes to the table. The god-bothering, scythe-swinging Dervish can enchant himself with all sorts of spiritual prayers and cause ice and earth damage, and the friendly neighbourhood Paragon can tactically assist players on the battlefield with various buffs and health boosts while lobbing spears at people's heads.

  • Steadily Building a Behemoth

    2404.org has weighed in with their thoughts on the latest Guild Wars expansion. Do they give passing marks to Nightfall?

    The massively multiplayer online game world is currently strangling under the weight of World of WarCraft — a fine game, but any publisher hoping to compete must offer something completely different. Alas, innovations in the role-playing game concept are few and far between, but NCSoft did find one idea attractive to any gamer, and made it key to Guild Wars. This earthshaking concept? An MMO without the monthly fee. $15 a month may not be much when weighed against endless glories of Azeroth, but “free” is a constant temptation.

  • Throwing the "pay to play" model out the window

    Games Radar has been busy today! they've posted another review. This time of Guild Wars.

    With an incredibly fluid and flexible character creation system, Guild Wars never lets you feel that you’ve been trapped in a certain character build. There are six professions: the Warrior, Monk, Necromancer, Mesmer, Ranger, and Elementalist. You’ll need to choose a main and secondary profession for any character, however out of the hundreds of unlock able skills available, you can only take eight with you when leaving a main city or entering a PvP arena.

  • Come to Cantha, where adventures await

    Games Radar has posted a review of Guild War's second expansion, Factions.

    Factions is a stand-alone campaign, meaning that you won’t need the original Guild Wars Prophecies to play. However, if you own the original Prophecies you can bring your character over to Cantha - the breathtaking Asia-inspired continent where Guild Wars Factions takes place. Filled with towering pagodas and lush environments, Cantha looks fabulous and adds an eastern flavor to the stock medieval fantasy land of Tyria from Prophecies.

    Don't miss a thing, head over and read the rest of the review.
