    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 !! :))

      

    First off, please play the game for longer before you judge it.  "Not playing the game for long" does not give you a good idea of what the game is really like.  Also, how long is "not for long"?  Several hours?  Several minutes?

    Judging by your complaint about the combat, I believe it is correct for me to assume that you didn't play long eenough to try out different weapon combinations, unlock the switch weapon ability, or unlock utility skills.  The combat changes dramatically after you gain those abilities.

    Second, what characters don't blend with what environments?  The humans will obviously blend well in their medieval environments, becase they are medieval people.  The Sylvari should blend with their environments, because it is only reasonable for plant people to live in plant buildings.  The Norn, again, blend perfectly, as giant musclebound barbarians living in cold snowy reasons is as old as D&D, if not more so.  I can understand why you think the Charr and Asura don't blend well with their environment, but look at their lore and you might gain a better appreciation for them and see how they in fact do blend.  The Asura are the smartest (or second smartest as I like to argue) race, so they will obviously have a high tech environment, and since this is a magical realm, obviously we won't see star trek stuff there, but it is close.  As for the Charr, they are a militaristic race that spurns magic and magic users (doesn't stop some from learning it, but thats another story), so it makes sense for them to live in an iron fortress.

    I don't see why you don't want to explore, given the jumping puzzles you sometimes need to pass to reach the vistas.  The journey is the best part (although sometimes the camera just sucks)!

    Now I will agree with you that TSW is a good game, but after trying TSW, I have to say that it is not as good as GW2.  I also heard alot of good things abot Rift, but haven't tried it so I can't judge it.  Defiance, on the other hand, again something I haven't tried, but is something I won't try and I have heard that it is an uninspired and bland game, so I will have to side with the majority on this and say, "Why do you think that Defiance is better than GW2?"

    Since when is Tuesday a direction?

    I think you downloaded Tera by mistake ...try moving and combat at the same time

     As I said , It's almost the same combat as TSW, that would indicate that I moved and fought at the same time..

    I spent like 30 minutes in the gw2 trial on the 19th and i was underwhelmed .

    I was expecting a major gfx upgrade from gw1, more entertaining combat and less of a story/quest feel... Maybe I'm just disenchanted from putting to much time into gaming over the years.

    I couldn't get myself to play it, which is weird since i've forced myself to play other games for hours on end to give them a fair chance, hoping i'd get a feel for the game if i keep playing.

    But gw2 made me feel like i should just go back and play gw1 instead of buying GW2...i mean the gfx just seem to be more colorful and a different artist design.. Visually it just kind of felt like a game "expansion".. not a sequal.

    And going from a dual class system to a single class system made the fact i didn't feel a connection to my classes more frustrating.

    I wasn't a huge fan of GW1.. i didn't have a big connection to it like some people do/did so maybe if i "loved" GW2 like I loved Anarchy Online/WOW/Rappelz/MOH:SH/Global Agenda/Firefall etc... I might see GW2 as a major upgrade .

    It is against TOS to post history but yes he did write long posts abut how the game feels like solo game.  It is there but i had go through it just to make sure because i dislike it when people try to mislead readers .

    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.

    Ummm, I'm pretty sure there are plenty of people you talk to in order to start various questlines. They have that kind of sun icon over them (honestly not sure what it is) and usually start an escort quest of one form or another.

     

    Are you sure you've played the game?

     

    Personally I've been back in GW2 for a bit the last couple of weeks just because. Can't say as I'm any more impressed now than I have been on other attempts to get into it. Combat is repetitive and boring -- basically kite while hiting anything on cooldown. That might be at least somewhat excusable if the skills were at all interesting or I had much meaningful choice in skills -- let's face it, GW1 didn't have the most involved combat either, but the extreme variety of choices meant you could come up with something you liked -- but instead it's like my character is mostly on autopilot.

     

    Meh, whatever, some people like it, good for them. While the OP was clearly trolling, I personally think Anet, like Trion, is ill served by the more rabid -- as in this thread -- elements of the defense force, but that's their problem, and mostly their fault. Believing your own press is rarely a good thing.

    I seriously doubt you even logged into the game... I don't even know where to start here. GW2 is graphically so superior to GW1 it's not even funny to list the improvements. Even just the character creation shows the improvement.

    Unless you're playing on a 10 years old PC with every setting on minimum... and even then, this is a lie.

    It would be nice if the people disliking the game weren't using lies and misinformation to bash it.

    Playing now: WoW, Landmark, GW2, The Crew, SotA

    Top 3 MMORPGs played: UO, AC1 and WoW

    Honorable mentions: AO, LotRO, SW:TOR and GW2.

    Lol ok , I am not even bashing GW2 i am saying that if you wheren't a big fan of Gw1 there might not be enough of a differance for you to fall in love with Gw2 and in my case playing Gw2 made me want to go back and play Gw1.

    And you people on mmorpg claiming everyone is bashing games when all they are doing are voicing thier opinion without telling people what to do or think, are starting to annoy me.. do you know what a forum is?

    The actual meaning.. not the modern use... 

    People coming out and saying "i really don't like this" is as important as people coming out and saying "I really like this"...  

    And i have been following Gw2 for years and been watchign Videos online and readign what peopel have to say... lots of people have had bad things to say abotu gw2... yet i still wanted to try it for myself to see how I feel about it.

    Movie reviewers seem to have different opinions of movies then i do a lot of the time.. yet i respect thier opinions and think about what they have to say.. .yet i still watch it and compare what i feel to what they had to say.

    There is no point in arguing with him. He, along with others posting here, are far superior in intellect to voice your opinion to. Just because I voiced mine, I am trolling and I have no clue what I am talking about. I didn't even bash the game at all...I just gave an account of my experience and perspective. This site is awesome, but on the other hand, it gets me fired up sometimes because of some of the cruel people that just like to stir things up.

    I've found GW2 to be more akin to beer or wine.

    At first taste, you don't get the fuss.

    But after you have sampled the different vintages, types, etc do you truly begin to see how good it actually is.

    I disagree with this.

    Many games I've played initially that didn't grab me, I've picked up later and found them to be absolute gems.

    Examples: Fallout 1, GW1, GW2 to name a few.

    I agree with the OP, I bought 2 copies for me and the wife, I played it for a session, and my wife played it for a few sessions, and we haven't loaded it back up.  It felt like a cluttered mess to me, is the best way to explain it.  I just did not like it, and I didn't like any of the classes I played (played beta a little too).

     

    I have thought of going back to try it, but I haven't yet.

    Yeah a lot of people say that...thats why i said im probably disenchanted...i find it harder and harder to give games a chance and stick with them over the years.

    I am confused as hell..so did you or did you not play this game before?

     I have watched videos and read reviews, based upon that I have also been involved in a few posts where GW2 has been mentioned, I don't think I have ever said I played the game, did I ?

    I may even ..If I recall correctly ..Gotten abit annoyed of all the GW2 players that came inside the TSW forum and spread all kinds of crap of that game..

     Is that forbidden unless you are an active player ?

    Furthermore, I have no clue in what I said in discussions that are 2-6 Months old; i don't actually care either, but It seems you do..:)

    Since you obviously wanted to target me as some sort of "troll" with your accusations, It seems to me that looking up someone elses post history to prove some sort of conspiracy teory to other posters, is as far as my concern far more ugly that actually partaking in discussions without any real ingame experience of the game in question..

    Besides that, we have internet every person can today get great info of a game by just looking at reviews and interviews ..But as far as that goes I have actually felt that GW2 was something to play before I actually played it yesterday, but for some reason the game passed me by (other games got purchased before) ..During release of GW2 I played alot of TSW and that Is one reason I didnt get on the GW2 train

    If you are going to try something, can I make a suggeston that might help you enjoy it more? Leave any preconceived notions at the door and just try it with a blank slate. I can tell the OP did not and of course his opinion was validated. Heaven forbid you like something like GW2.....

    It has nothing to do with being a hater but simply the fact that the game didnt provide anything to make the poster wanna keep playing it. What's the difference if he did only play 5 minutes? There are countless posts about how the game doesnt change up to max level. But assuming the OP did only play 5 minutes to come to his conclusion, that was clearly enough of an indicator that the game didnt have the capability to encourage him to keep playing. Was he supposed to play level after level of disliking it until endgame or until it did became fun for him? Why would he spend more time than is necessary if it isnt giving him an immediate sense to press on? Shouldnt a game draw you in right from the start?

    As far as your "suggestion," if anything, his "preconcieved notions" were from glowing reviews of the game; if you actually read what he wrote. So your entire statement about, " I can tell the OP did not and of course his opinon was validated" is moot. If that was true, his "preconceived notion" would have been that of a glowing review; just like he said. Heaven forbid he doesn't like something like GW2.....

    Well, if I did play for 5 minutes, then he probably unlocked all of his weapon's skills and hit lvl 25.

    Played: AA, AC1, AC2, Aion, AO, AoC, CO, CoX, DAoC, DCUO, DN, EVE, EQ1, EQ2,
    ESO, FE, FFXI, FFXIV, FF, GW1, GW2, Istaria, L2, LoTRO, MO, MxO, NW, Rift, RoE,
    Ryzom, SB, SWG, SWTOR, TERA, TSW, WAR, WoW, WURM...

    It has nothing to do with being a hater but simply the fact that the game didnt provide anything to make the poster wanna keep playing it. What's the difference if he did only play 5 minutes? There are countless posts about how the game doesnt change up to max level. But assuming the OP did only play 5 minutes to come to his conclusion, that was clearly enough of an indicator that the game didnt have the capability to encourage him to keep playing. Was he supposed to play level after level of disliking it until endgame or until it did became fun for him? Why would he spend more time than is necessary if it isnt giving him an immediate sense to press on? Shouldnt a game draw you in right from the start?

    As far as your "suggestion," if anything, his "preconcieved notions" were from glowing reviews of the game; if you actually read what he wrote. So your entire statement about, " I can tell the OP did not and of course his opinon was validated" is moot. If that was true, his "preconceived notion" would have been that of a glowing review; just like he said. Heaven forbid he doesn't like something like GW2.....


    The point is back then he kept telling everyone that TSW was far superior to GW2.

    Now it turns out he actually never played GW2 until now.

    So he jumped into the game for 5 minutes just to tell everyone again that TSW is far superior to GW2.

    With so much bias at hand we simply can't take anything he says serious.

    I have an entitlement delusion - because I have this strange idea that my 50$ should have the same value as anyone else's 50$
    "Your account is not entitled to the same value as a new account. Just saying you are entitled to the same as someone else because you said so is exactly what expresses your entitlement issues."

    It's not correct or incorrect. It's an opinion and we all have them. No game is going to be for everyone but at this point in time (Due to how long GW2 has been out and the fact that it has already been given a glowing approval by most that have played it and sold like hotcakes) if you don't like it then I think its a bit better to simply say it isn't for you, leave your reasons why and move on. Compairing it to games that weren't nearly as successful isn't going to do much but stir the pot. 

    I play all 4 games myself. Defiance, GW2, TSW, and Rift. For me all 4 are some of the best MMOs to come out in recent years and play each for different reasons. 

     

    In any case, if you aren't having fun simply find a game you do enjoy and don't feel bad about it. GW2 will keep chugging right along with or without you.
