i kinda agree with the movement and the boring combat and the animations. the movement feels abit stale for me. and the combat is like wow pretty mutch but without the autoclicks,instead you have to spam buttons to "auto attack".

the thing i really dont get with GW2 is that people say you have to aim and shit.. but you dont, you just have to face your target and be in range.. just like wow combat.. it might feel like you actually aiming but all you are doing is looking at them and spamming buttons.. im hoping and i will try hard to make this game fun since im so bored right now WvWvW was kinda fun. i like siege combat and in the beta i had some fun in WvWvW but the "fun" was building cannons and shit.. the actual "player vs player" is still the boring "nothing happends combat" where you fight a guy. get almoste nothing for killing him (some pvp points) and if u die u lose nothing but 10-1min time because u ahve to run back.. i will say this again after playing darkfall, eve or mortal online or some other full loot games you cant have fun in pvp in normal hotkey mmos, thats a fact!

Difference is you can still use the skills while out of range or out of line of sight. Therefor it's possible to make people waste their abilities if you play well. That's why people say it's more involved then WoW combat.

As for that last point, pretty sure that's an opinion.

The skill restrictions is a big mistake imo, but otherwise, i played BWE 2, BWE3 and very short time in today's stress test. 

First, the tech who kept unplugging their router needs to be strung up.  Power testing and stress testing are two totally different things.

 

I am more than mildly depressed they completely ruined the mesmer.

I am really happy there are no unkillable monk classes in this round.

WvW YEAH!!!  Grew tired quickly of the team only match modes.  WvW for the break, though that has it's own issues.

I didn't notice any graphics improvement but I was getting 50 fps in each beta session anyway.  Might be because I don't go into pvp with my graphics all maxed out.  All that glow and crap just makes your enemy load slower meaning they see you before you see them.

Ok, sorry i missed that, I can say i was wrong to jump the gun on that.

I still think the 1 hour first impression has merit tho, and shouldn't be discredited.

No it's not.  One hour doesn't even get you out of the first zone where the most basic of basic events happen.  This goes for any game unless it's a copy of something and might get a feel but only a lukewarm feel at best. 

And really, why should we care about some nobody posting their worthless reveiw?  These "reveiws" are getting tiresome.  Your no game expert so don't try to play off like you are.  Post you "reveiw" on metacritic or amazon and stop cluttering up forums with these worthless threads.

If this is how you really feel, I'd say you need more time to let combat click for you. Clearly you don't understand it.

You be the first person to say that....ROFL

If I played TSW in beta for 1 hour and said the game sucks, does that mean my impression has merit...well gee thanks. And it shouldn't be discredited either by your standard. [And I'm not saying TSW sucks; that's an "what if" situation]


If you came to that conclusion after an hour of tsw your opinion still has merit.
It says you don't like that game, and that's fine.

"This game is bad", is only perception, Some people may well really dig it others not so much.

Obscene is when you start making direct comparisons like 'gw2 is better than wow'.

Don't be silly. By one hour you would of had enough time to test each of the games systems in there very basic forms, Tested races and sampled other starting areas.

Games dont usually change from there fundamentals. Only expand.

You should know by the end of that if this game is something you would like to play.


Your opinion of a game after one hour has very little merit. I don't know any mmo where you can even begin to experience the game in only the first hour. I think some people come up with these threads because they like to argue or something.

Lets fast forward 100 hours, What would you be doing then which would be drasticly different to what you were doing within that first hour?

You would still be killing mobs
You would still be using the same combat systems but expanded.
You would still be doing DE's
You would still be doing WvWvW
You Could still be doing Hearts

4) The dialogue writing is terrible, stories are cheeseball silly, and goes hand in hand with the amateur acting. You will not walk away from quests with the same kind of smile you might get at a cleverly written WoW quest (even if the quest gameplay sucks, the writing is generally good in WoW).

 

You compared cheese whiz (WoW) to cheeseballs (GW2). Neither game has "stellar" voice acting. Everything else you mentioned is a matter of personal taste IMHO.

Well, here it is. A person defending the idea that a one hour review is perfectly acceptable for reviewing an MMORPG. 

 

I strongly disagree. 

SWTOR is the greatest mmo ever!

No, i simply mean to say that a 1 hour 'review' has its merit, Putting it in the same box a professional 'full' review I don't agree with.

From the 1 hour he played, he could extrapolate enough information to make a personal review just not in depth.

I would say that a One hour of playtime is more than enough for preliminary impressions. I just prefer more substance less "this is just terrible but I wont say why I think this it just is deal with it" lines of thought.

You don't need 1000 hours to write about things you experienced in a game... he wrote about things he EXPERIENCED HIMSELF... note how he didn't write about hings he didn't experience.

Why are people attacking the OP with such bile.  It's not like he made a thread called "my in-depth review" then just stated "I played for one hour, game is bad trololol".  

As advertised by the thread name, he gave his impression on the game over his 1 hour of play.  He even gave good reasoning for his opinions on certain points he liked or disliked.

That, he most certainly did NOT do. The camera issues may be a minor concern, but the rest really was bile.

Or could it be you just did not agree with his opinions?

Games dont usually change from there fundamentals. Only expand.

You should know by the end of that if this game is something you would like to play.

Very basic form isn't a proper evaluation and sure as hell not informed enough to write a reveiw.  Do you evaluate WoW solely based in you little started town or whatever where your stick killing some kobalds and bandits?  Hell no, it's evaluated much later in game when you've got full access to talent trees, dungeons, raids, lvl cap PvP zones ect ect.  1 hour game play gives you a first impression and thats it which isn't anywhere near the real picture.

Yes you can get a real basic vibe hence my lukewarm feel comment you quoted but in no shape or form is it substantial to be any sort of a valid review like this OP felt he had to make a thread for.

Any fool can know. The point is to understand.

Would you merit a review of my playing WoW for 1 hour? TSW for 1 hour? D3 for 1 hour?

No. You wouldn't and you know it.

Having opinions are one thing. Drawing wild conclusions are another.

Play for fun. Play to win. Play for perfection. Play with friends. Play in another world. Why do you play?
