Seems GW2 is getting universal praise from the gaming press who had a chance to play beta.
Don't get me wrong. I am strongly rooting for GW2 and hope that the press is giving us true reasons to be hopeful.
Buuuuuut........ I take it with a grain of salt because it wasn't very long ago that the press was almost universally gushing over another product that didn't quite match the reception from the public..... SWTOR
Yes, I know many are having a good time in SWTOR, but there has been enough (quite a lot) of criticism levied from the MMO community to put 'press gush' into modern perspective. Now whether the MMO community has become overly critical (a fair challenge), may be a matter of opinion, but from my perspective I think a lot of us are waiting for that 'next big thing', and I would agree with most of my more cynical compadres in that no one has delivered that 'next big thing' in 7 years...
and I will also add.... I think it is still possible for someone to deliver.. hopefully, for quite a few developers to deliver, in the next couple of years.
Not saying I am discounting the hype.... just taking it with a grain of salt.
