The original Guild Wars stood apart from its World of Warcraft-aping peers via its subscription-free, PVP-focused world, and its sequel takes that innovation to another level. In our review, we called Guild Wars 2 "a call to arms" to the stagnating MMORPG, due its considered approach to every aspect of the genre and its deep respect for the free time of its players.
There's enough here to keep you busy for years, but don't be surprised if you spend the majority of that time simply exploring the world, admiring the game's countless stunning vistas.

An accomplished and rewarding online RPG that does a great deal to reclaim the promise of its genre.
