Difficult or Boring,
This review is from: Guild Wars Factions (Video Game)
They only problem with Factions is that if you have never played the original you will be seriously lost and confused. Even if you have played the original and kicked undead or monster butt you will be disappointed in the lack of skills awarded by the insanely large amount of quests. When you finally get out of the starter island you spend hours if not days running backwards and forwards between the same few areas, and to be honest its becomes very irritating and boring.
The quests and missions are also often of such difficulty you cant do them without highly skilled players rather than NPC's, this can cause a lot of difficulty and snobbish behaviour from the so called experts(with high Fame/Rank mainly earnt through PvP matches rather than teamwork),who refuses to lower themselves to have a noob or someone of low rank teaming up with them.
All in all the game is a triumph of fantastic graphics and interesting ideas, I just wish the designers had thought more about the lone wolfs and a little less on the over the top imperial waffle. But I'd still buy it again.
