Guild Wars 2 Digital Deluxe Game Review
Full Disclosure: The product sample used in this article has been self-supplied.
Guild Wars 2 is the much anticipated sequel to the award winning Guild Wars by ArenaNet. In this review, we will be looking at the character creation process, events and several facets of questing. Guild Wars 2 also includes an excellent player versus player system, including "World versus World", where your server is pit against two other servers in an attempt to control resources which provide in-game bonuses to every player on your realm.
Guild Wars 2 is a fantasy based massively multiplayer online roleplaying game (MMORPG) which sports an upgraded game engine, taking full advantage of current graphics card capabilities. The scenery and music within the game are truly breathtaking, with about as much realism as you'd expect from an MMO in this genre.
The beautifully rendered scenery in Guild Wars 2 insures that you can see the forest as well as the trees. The game certainly shows of the capabilities of newer cards, leading to an incredibly detailed and complex environment. The developers have managed to pack incredible graphics into the game without causing serious lag or playability issues for those with lower end graphics cards. Even with every graphics option enabled, including having the "Performance/Quality" bar set at quality, we were able to play with no noticeable lag on a moderate computer with an nVidia GeForce 440 GT.
