    I must disagree with this. I played all classes to at least level 25 and they all end up feeling like you are playing the same character. You have a jump back special and a jump to the mob special with every character. Some classes and starting areas are a little better, but it ends up being boring regardless. It isn't a bad game, but it also isn't the revolutionary MMO that everyone made it out to be.

    If you did this with every character, then it is no wonder you only made it to lvl 25. Guessing you died alot. Furthermore, which Mesmer skill specifically allows you to jump into a mob and wtf would you even do that? A mesmer wears cloth armor and that would be just a dumb thing to do. Your reply is not making you look very intelligent. Nobody with any brains would play a mage class like that.

    All classes, to me, had that been there done that feel. I am not talking about obvious class differences, I am talking about the feel of the game

    Ya, o.k. gonna have to go with Captain Picard on this one and just say you are full of bs. You should go find something better to do troll because anyone with half a brain can see what you are doing here.

    If we fail to change the things of today, they will become the lucid nighmares of tommorrow.

    Also tried the free to play weekend, already done by saturday morning!

    It's just cheesy and plainly just like every MMO out. Didn't find a single thing to keep me interested.

    Talk to this person chase that goal return for reward Blah, blah, blah

    Seriously don't understand why so many actually paid for it....................(glad I didn't)

    I haven't yet tried GW2 dispite glowing reviews , so when they gave out keys for a demo for this weekend I finnaly got to dive into it..without paying 60 Euro for it..

    As you all can imagine  Ihavent played it for very long as this demo started yesterday, so this is naturally based on the early levels of the game.

    Well..I'm not sure where all the glowing reviews come from , but for me this game felt very bad, cheasy and simply uninspired..

    From remembering the countless complains about The Secrets Worlds poor combat and animations, wich I never felt that they were bad, but this combat that is almost the same type but with fantasy weaponry feels like super bad when you compare them. I get  feeling the combat simply is not connecting to the enemies enough..

    Furthermore , I get the feeling my character doesn't blend in well in the enviorments, It feels almost as she's cut and pasted ontop of a postcard or something.

    The outdoor and vistas are nice looking thou, but alas they are not going to give me a reason enough to go explore the world when the rest of the game feels cheasy and uninspired.

    I'm glad I didnt shell out the 60 Euros needed to try this.

    TSW is by all counts a far greater product, even TRIONS new Defiance and even RIft feels better than this game.

    Game on !! :))

      

    I disagree about your Defiance comment... 

     

    The majority of the internets feels the same as you do, when it comes to GW2, and TSW. From metacritic to mmorpg.com.

    If a game doesn't hook you in the first few minutes, there's isn't much worth playing it further if it feels like a burden.

    Maybe you should delete your post history talking down on GW2 for like a year and the numerous "reviews"  about its "inferior" gameplay and repetitive glorfication of your favorite (citation) "superior" TSW over GW2, before making a post claiming you only tried the recently available demo of GW2 .

    It kinda hurts the credibility any new "review", when you guys keep talking down other games gameplay and then through some inconvenient slip of words, it turns out you never have actually touched on them.

    I could google e.g. "World of Warcraft is crap" and find hundreds of entries too. Hell, I'm sure I could even google "peace is crap" and find entries.

    Thing is, you can enter whatever you want in the google search field and find stuff related to it. That doesn't make it true just because it's written on the Internet.

    Hundreds and hundreds of people over the world seem to agree that killing others who disagree with your political or religious views, your skin color, or even your sex or your physical aspect, is ok. That doesn't make it any more right.

    Seems a few in this thread tried the game with the preconceived notion that they would hate it. :p

    uh, I won't comment on any other part of your post as that's your opinion and I have my litany of complaints as well.

    However "uninspired" is so far beyond the pale that I'm actually going to question that you A, tried it or B, have an eye for detail. And not just visual detailed.

    This game is so "inspired" it's not funny.

    Say what you want about GW2, anything, but it's very clear that this game is a labor of love, from it's water color art design to the multiple easter eggs scattered about the land, from the multiple sections of many dynamic quests (which most players never stick around to see) to the little bits of dialogue that the npc's say to each other.

    This game is so lovingly made that I have to say it's one of the best crafted games that I've played in a long time. I can't quite play a lot of it in one sitting because its game play doesn't grab me that much but the world and the detail of everything in it, including the avatars (though I have complaints about those as well) is beyond exceptinoal.

    agreed.. gw2 isn't everyones cup of tea but it is imho one of the most finely crafted themepark MMOs ever made and I play a LOT of these games

    I angered the clerk in a clothing shop today. She asked me what size I was and I said actual, because I am not to scale. I like vending machines 'cause snacks are better when they fall. If I buy a candy bar at a store, oftentimes, I will drop it... so that it achieves its maximum flavor potential. --Mitch Hedberg

    Yeah, you didnt play Guild Wars 2 then. Its fine if you dont like the game, I seriously don't care. Just know that it will still be here for the people that do enjoy it along with major content additions every month and all the other GW2 goodies. We all knew the trolling would be ridiculous this weekend, it is your time to shine so enjoy it. I look forward to reading all the threads pop up over the weekend and continue on stating the same thing:

    "I played the free trial, the game sucks even after 7 months."  or "I gave GW2 an honest try but with no gear grind and or end game there is no reason to keep playing." hmm what else has already been discussed in a thread since launch...

    Thank you for writing yet another thread about GW2  further showing how popular this game really is.

    I mean the contradiction to me starts with Engineer class lol.

    Look actually the funny part is "It feels the same but the ONLY DIFFERENCE is..." 

    That there is the problem, I mean we can  claim that in GW2 feels the same but the issue is when after saying so the same person will say something along the highlighted red, that or try to avoid cause there is a different yes in feeling as well.

    Though really some don't believe it they just get it from another thread and run with it.

    I'll be fair though, some may actually feel that way, how? I have no clue, cause the feeling from each proffesion changes for me. I usually got to adjust when playing a Warrior and then an Engineer, or Guardian then a thief, a Memser then a Elementalist. 

    Cause their mechanics help change the feeling, I can be beasting with a Guardian in pvp and pve but I can't just change a different proffesion and feel the same.

    Yeah, the obvious flaw in this was the first part of the sentence "Talk to this person chase that goal".  as you do not have to talk to any npc to get a goal. You just simply enter an area and get it. This person clearly never played because that is part of the game everywhere.

    But you don't. You don't GET anything - heart NPC is a vendor, you buy stuff from him just like from any other Karma vendor.

    Nature without Technology is little more than animals running about.
    Nature without Magic is without wonder or miracle.
    .........
    Magic without Technology is fantasy.
    Magic without Nature is formless and useless.
    .........
    Technology without Nature is application without understanding.
    Technology without Magic is repetitious and uninventive.

    But you don't. You don't GET anything - heart NPC is a vendor, you buy stuff from him just like from any other Karma vendor.

    I know but the rewards unlock mostly afte completing the event and if you have enough karma you can buy thsoe rewards. Maybe he was geting confused with heart NPC when he said complete task and return for rewards.
