Product Description

Manufacturer's Description

In the face of Tyria's greatest challenges, heroes have returned to bring to an end the forces of darkness. Abaddon has fallen, Shiro has been unmasked, and the Titans were driven back to the demon realms. Now great earthquakes decimate the lands, opening huge chasms beneath the earth. Boiling up from that darkness, a threat spreads that may spell the end of the Age of Man. Guild Wars: Eye of the North is the first true expansion for Guild Wars and calls players back to the continent of Tyria, the home of the original Prophecies campaign. Players must take their existing characters and stand side-by-side with both friends and enemies from the past, recruit new allies and heroes, and delve deep into perilous dungeons to face an ancient evil. Win or lose, the players will set the stage for Guild Wars 2.

Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Amazon hasn't noted this but it's important to know: This expansion will need one of the other three games to be used, be it Nightfall, Factions or Prophicies.

I'd suggest Prophicies as this carries on from where Prophicies left off.

5.0 out of 5 stars The best yet! 26 Aug 2007
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
My girlfriend and I play Guildwars together and have adventured our way through all three of the previous games. We're very experienced mmorpg'ers with a long list of other games behind us. We bought the 'sneak peak weekend' pack for Eye of the North and have been playing it since Saturday. It is BRILLIANT!

There are many changes and improvements to be enjoyed in Eye of the North. As well as instantly recognisable ones such as new skills and weapons there are more subtle ones too. Let's start with the music. When was the last time you heard someone extol the music in a game? It's wonderfully atmospheric, unobtrusive and really adds to the richness of the game.

The design of the world is lavish. In some games you see a very interesting game item such as a statue or a doorway and then notice it again in ten other places. Not in EotN. Each location is unique with it's own features which have been lovingly designed. It is possible just to walk about slack-jawed in wonder at some of the locations.

The world itself has the atmosphere of an ancient Scandanavia that actually feels cold and covered in snow; much like the deserts in Prophecies felt hot and covered in sand. NPCs in EotN are an interesting lot, changing into bears and being 2.5m tall!

The structure of the missions seems to have changed subtly too. Whereas in previous games there were main missions with interesting side quests, the side quests in EotN seem to intermingle with the main missions in a new way that really adds to the experience. You are faced with decisions over which path to take and how to proceed. Although this is similar to previous games, here it seems to have been really embedded.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great!...with a couple of frustrations 18 Sep 2007
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
As an avid fan of all GW titles I too was looking forward to this first and only expansion. Again, as in previous titles, I wasn't dissapointed although a few things annoyed me. Let me first tell you the fun stuff: As this is 'only' an expansion, it starts where Prophecies stops (sort of); this way you can pick up the storyline, which in my opinion was the best of the three titles. Once you get a bit further in the game, you begin to unlock certain items/NPC's/skills, some of which are awesome. You can also prepare your current characters for eternal glory with the 'hall of heroes', here your characters will be displayed with their armor, weapons...etc for all to admire once we all begin on GW2.
For the rest, the gameplay hasn't changed, the looks haven't changed. No need to, as this was more than OK.
The frustrations: certain services/kits are no longer location bound or bought with money. You have to earn titles before you can do this or that. That's OK to a certain level, as it avoids the classic situation where a new player is 'run' or 'taxied' to a more advanced area, gets all the benefits from this area and then goes back to finish his early quests.
Also, as stated by others, I feel it's just a filler until we can lay our hands on GW2.
Nonetheless, the pros outdo the cons so my advise is: buy it, enjoy it and lets meet in GW2!.

This isn't a review of the expansion as such but I'd just like to give a heads up to anyone else thinking of buying it four years after the original launch. Although the original game was designed for Windows XP, that version installs and runs just fine on Windows 7 64 bit and presumably Vista too. Even if it didn't, it doesn't matter, as all you actually need is the code that comes in the box. Once you have added that to your account, just log into whichever version/s of Guild Wars you already have on your PC and any extra files needed for Eye of the North will be downloaded automatically. You can get the Eye of the North starter quest from a mission giver in each of the main cities from the first three GW games.

The XP version is much cheaper than the Vista version of this game, so if you want Eye of the North, just buy the XP version and save some money.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not bad, but.... 13 Sep 2007
Verified Purchase
Fun: 2.0 out of 5 stars   
... I have to agree with A. ODONNEL. The change in the overall thrust of what one does and where, is not good. Much more farming and tedious rehashing is now required.

It is true, you don't *have* to go for these things. But they are a significant point of what GW:EN is about.

I too will be looking at GW2 a bit more carefully before acquiring it, as and when the time comes.

The game itself continues to look and sound fine, with some additions and refinements helping the new areas seem at least a little fresh. From a technical standpoint, it's rather good. But it doesn't have the magic stardust the others have.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very Good.....Bloody Short! 27 Jan 2008
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I have been playing GW for over 2yrs now, i have all campaigns and this expansion, with all of them complete on hard mode. This expansion is really good, but just doesnt have that same feeling as the others...Like on nightfall going though the campaign, struggling and then you make it and feel like you have really achieved something. This doesnt feel the same at all, because it is so short. I would say that factions is the best still, and that GW is still the best online MMORPG
