In conclusion, Guild Wars 2 is one of the finest games I have ever played. It isnâ€™t just because its an MMOG, it is because ArenaNet have looked at stagnating genre, branched away from the norm and managed to meet and surpass all that they have claimed. The game world looks and plays incredibly with dynamic events a triumph over Warhammer Onlines iteration, whilst class balance and its PvP is something I just cannot wait to experience again. A few tiny niggles aside, such as a few casting bar errors and some dubious voice acting in places (that are due to be rectified), it is so unbelievably polished it puts all rivals to shame.
There is a reason Guild Wars 2 won the editors choice award at the Eurogamer Expo and itâ€™s because it is truely remarkable. ArenaNet, please take my money.
