I'm probably playing this game wrongly, must be, but I've recently purchased GW2 reached lvl 40 and disappointed so far..... Is this what AAA mmorpg's have turned into?
If I take this game for what it is, it's decent, has very nice graphics and smooth gameplay feel and it's no subscription, but the content what I'm used to is just severely lacking.
So far my overall quests have just been too generic, it's a neat way to clean up the UI but overall the quests are nothing ground breaking, infact I found most of them if not all tedius clean up rats quest etc.
GW2 dynamic events are a rip off from Rift's invasions, they do the events better then Rift but they are hardly dynamic or rewarding, it's a let down as this was one of the games selling point for me.
Levelling up is just not satisfying, you can unlock all your weapon skills by level 5. It's an idea, but they could possible implement some sort of levelling up with which skill you use more, so you become more customizable.
Also the levelling is just far to quick you level up by crafting, gathering, exploring, WvW getting skill points etc I'm easily outlevelling the little content what is there.
Also is there even any endgame content? I'm hearing on map chat all the gloom and doom talk about how GW2 is 'already' dying which leads me to think that the endgame is going to suck.
The trait and crafting system is just bland to say the least and the PvP is riddled with problems, the WvW thing is a stupid excuse for PvP huge empty map (game could do with some mounts btw).
Personal stories are a nice touch seems like the only quest in the game worth doing, but still the old republic did that a lot better.
Obviously this game has it's good points, but the 9/10 reviews just doesn't reflect what I've experienced so far. To sum this game up so far: it feels like a mix up between TOR & Rift and not much better than either which isn't saying much.
The game can and probably will be improved but it's not the high quality content packed mmorpg I expected it was going to be, feels like a fantasy action game to mess around on.
