Is this a good game or a bad game? Probably by now, you've played it yourself and can answer that question for yourself. But... I need to get some crap off my chest about this game. So I'm gonna lay it out here.
You know how when you were a kid and you might get sick, your mom made you stay home from school? You remember trying to watch day-time TV? You know... those hours before your favorite after-school shows came on? You remember flipping through the channels a million times trying to find.... ANYTHING!? And then after about 20 minutes of that... you finally submit to the irresistible power of... the Game Shows? You know - Jeopardy, The Price is Right, Family Feud, Shop 'Til You Drop, Hollywood Squares, Pyramid, Supermarket Sweep, Name That Tune, and Press Your Luck?
You know how when you were watching those shows, you'd think, "Well... these aren't BAD shows... but I sure would rather be watching Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Power Rangers, Thundercats, Darkwing Duck, Transformers, Saved By The Bell, Salute Your Shorts, .... fuggin' Doug!"
Well... playing Guild Wars 2.... is a lot like watching Press Your Luck around 10:30 in the morning on a sunny, perfect Tuesday, when you'd rather be watching Doug... which doesn't come on for another 7 hours. But it sure beats the hell out of going to school and learning... like... Math and shit.... and it's not like there's anything better on TV. So... oh well... given the circumstances... I guess it's pretty good.
You know? Like.... it's serviceable if nothing else is going on at the time? But... you're not going to sit down and watch a 3 Season Marathon of The Price is Right like you actually might do for Thundercats.
ADDITION: Because I'd hate to waste your time with giving you a completely subjective review like any other review of any other game by anyone else by providing you with my own way of expressing things and hoping you might understand my meaning according to my own expression rather than how you express something, I've added in some typical grading scales you might find in other reviews so that it meets your criteria of what constitutes a review.
I give the game 1 Thumbs Up out of 2.
I give it 3 Stars out of 5.
I give it a 6.5/10.
It meets a 65% approval rating according to my personal grading scale.
Graphics - 8.5
It looks pretty good.
Sound - 6
It sounds typical and serviceable, but there's nothing special about it.
Gameplay - 6
It's not boring for the first 30 minutes to an hour, but then I start to feeling like I'd rather be playing something better.
Value - 6
I feel like it is worth the price I paid for it. But I don't necessarily feel the need to participate in the Cash Shop.
Tilt - 6
I don't love it. And I don't hate it. It's okay when I'm bored.
What I like about the game:
I like the fact that it's better than everything else I've played on the current Market. But you should take that as more of a statement about the current Market, rather than a comment about the game. And it fits into that "serviceable" zone quite nicely for me.
What I don't like about the game:
I don't like the fact that when I play GW2, I can't shake the notion that I'd rather be playing something better.
And that's my Revised Review of Guild Wars 2. I feel like adding the numbers really expressed better what I had to say about the game instead of what I originally wrote. Thanks for the feedback guys!
