Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
GuildWars is an online role-playing game in a fantasy setting, allowing unique customisation and strategy options and does not require a monthly fee to play. This collection comprises all three full games from the series and the expansion pack.

Each of the games follows a unique storyline in a separate continent but allows you to freely move your characters between all continents, so you can use the unique aspects of each of the games across the entire collection.

There are both story based and player versus player modes in the game, each requiring players to master unique methods to overcome many different challenges.

There are literally thousands of hours worth of gameplay in this collection and alot of variety in the different aspects of the game. I've been playing GuildWars for nearly three years now and can recommend this to anyone who wants excellent value and something to keep them going for a long time.

This product is certified to work with Windows Vista and Windows XP.

5.0 out of 5 stars Well worth getting! Seriously! 31 Dec 2008
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I've been playing Guild Wars since it came out back in 2005 and it has come a hell of a long way since the first chapter (now known as Prophecies). With intreguing storylines from each chapter you'll definately find it hard to tear yourself away from.

So what do you get with this product? As well as Prophecies which is based on the Continent known as Tyria, you also get Factions, which is based on Cantha, and Nightfall, which is based in Elona. The Forth game, Eye of the North is unlike Factions and Nightfall as it is actually an expansion of the continent, Tyria.

Here are brief synopsis of each of the chapters/expansions.

Chapter 1: Prophecies

The last day dawns on the Kingdom of Ascalon, its people unaware that everything they'd ever known would end in an instant. The Charr, a race of beasts continue to fight for control and King Adelburn needs new blood to fight against them. You have decided to join the King's Army, little knowing that it is a journey that will take you far from Ascalon, forfilling a prophecy you are destined to follow.

Chapter 2: Factions

500 years ago, the Betrayer, known as Shiro Tagachi murdered the Emperor Angsiyan. Once the Emperor's most trusted bodyguard, no one knows why he turned on the Emperor. All that everyone knows is, when Shiro was finally killed by the Assassin, Visu, Shiro's death wail turned the forests into stone and the seas into Jade. The day would be forever known as The Jade Wind.

500 years on, you are in training at the tranquillic island known as Shing Jea Island. Trained by the renowned Ritualist known as Master Togo at his Monestary, you have been chosen to represent the Monastary at a gathering on Minister Cho's estate, unaware that a plague has taken ahold.

Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
If you come to this game expecting WoW, you'll be disappointed. WoW isn't better than GW, they're just very different games. When thinking about GW, it's best to imagine it as a co-operative RPG, with an accessible but very deep and rewarding PvP system, which is kept seperate from the PvE campaigns (but your characters can get into it at any time).

Guild Wars has a lovingly crafted world and a suprisingly deep plot. Unlike WoW, it's not just a collection of quests, but a series of instanced missions which directly involve your character saving the world (several times), along with well-written characters. The graphics, suprisingly given their age, are still excellent, with a mixture of stylised landscapes and sharp textures making it look several shades better than most MMOs.

The build system is excellent, forcing you to specialise your character and combine skills for maximum effect (but you can change build at any time with no penalty). This creates literally tens of thousands of potential play styles, fuelling the hardcore PvP metagame. It's best to play this game with friends, but the guild systems and social functions make it easy to pick up teams for missions and quests (and suprisingly good AI henchmen and heroes are available any time).

Hardcore PvE grind/achievement fans will find solace in Hard Mode, dungeons and elite zones, and the numerous titles, which function like achievements; although some bestow small benefits on your character and your favorite one can be displayed below your name in towns. There's even a title for getting lots of other titles!

This complete collection includes all 3 campaigns and the smaller Eye of the North expansion pack; which at the very minimum gives you about a hundred hours of main-quest/mission content.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Future (Hopefully) 6 Feb 2009
By Lilypop
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
I think it is worth pointing out NSoft's future plans as these may have a positive bearing on purchasing this product.

Guildwars II is intended to be released this year. And again it will be subscription free! Additionally the designers (who are ex-vanilla WoW) have stated they intend to make the game more "typically MMO" like with things such as persistent landscapes, Z-axis etc.

However any skills/titles etc acquired in Guild Wars can be transferred to
Guildwars II, the functionality for this is in the Eye of The North expansion including in this box. As progression in Guildwars is mainly about acquiring skills there is no reason at all not to play Guildwars now in anticipation of the delight of Guildwars II in the future. Ofc till the latter has a release date nothing should be taken for granted.

As to Guildwars, for what is intended it totally delivers, first class travel system, ditto questing, mapping, graphics and UI. And it is extremely cheap and, just as important, quick to find out what is intended!

However if you're into gearing-up, buying and selling, tradeskills, housing, flying on griffons then you'll maybe have to wait for Guildwars II.

WoW players will maybe get a shock when they hit level 20, about 50+ hours gaming, to find that progression is essentially based on acquiring skills and that you can't out-gear people in PvP!

As said above, this box is unbelieveable value for money.

I would guess that the PvE content alone represents 1000+ hours gameplay in superb and often beautifully crafted landscapes with solid inclusive lore/storyline. As the game is really targetted at PvP gaming (PvE is the alternative route to gaining skills sets), this is saying something.

Feel free to make your own call at no cost via Nsoft's trial version available from their website, you'll be up and playing within 15mins.
