Honestly I don't think I've heard a single bad review or opinion of guild wars 2 unless it was

A. completely obvious from their post that they've probably never set foot in the game or

B. are completely baseless such as "epic fail" or "it didn't live up to the hype!" with absolutely no examples or reasons to back it up.

 

I don't have a problem with opinions, in fact I would love to hear honest reasons why people don't like it cause I REALLY want to know how they couldn't.  What I can't stand are the immature trolls that try to give it a bad name just because they seem to have a personal vendetta against it.

You really need to look more. Myself and many others have stated over months how we just couldn't get into the game. It is designed to be different and some will see it as revolutionary whiles others see a game engineered too far from the concept the mmo was originally designed. I fall into the second category. 

 

I find GW2 fails to pull me into the game off the start, it is based far too much on fast paced action with little else to do (which as some will love, others will find it too arcadish and not realistic enough. Although I don't mind high fantasy, this game takes it too far for me to enjoy it's setting more), the story driven component is honestly poorly written and not needed as it appears far to plainly as a layered mechanic and no integral to the game and one of the largest immersion breaking issues for me is the "better than GPS" map that everyone requires in order to play the game. Due to the map I pretty much only see the game as a table top map where my next objectives are clearly marked public quest systematically and evenly placed over the Tom Tom map.

 

I have other minor quibbles: Characters turn like pushing a wheel barrel, the camera angle just seems to never be right no matter what I do, the game throws you into combat and nothing else and grouping is like being in a blind folded orgy where I couldn't care less what peoples names are and perhaps larger than a quibble is that I actually don't like the combat system at all. Some elements I do and some character systems and powers are rather intriguing but as a whole it doesn't match nor reflect nearly in any way why I enjoy mmo's ... because they were a way to take my enjoyment of pnp rpg's and put then into a video game.

 

That is likely the very heart of why I did not enjoy GW2 over three beta weekends and briefly over early release. It is the evolution of traditional mmo's into a more traditional video game. That is EXACTLY what I do not want in an mmo, because I actually do not like video games anymore (I ONLY play mmo's).  I want mmo's to be more like the roots from where they spawned and not continue to evolve into what developers now think new to mmo video game audiences want. They are alienating their original audience and not realizing why this is killing the mmo business. A great many players also want this and you will see many of them not likeing GW2. My favorites mmo's are from a time long past, most long before Wow. So many elements from them translated the feeling of an rpg to video so very well. Core components simply were abandoned when future mmo's were made. Many of these elements are what make up the so called sandbox game (which most players have no clue to what that concept is even if they think they do). If you never played table top rpg's you likely cannot recognize these elements. They certainly are mostly gone from modern mmo's. Sadly one of these elements is that of mystery and suprise. With everyone using addons and looking up quests objectives even without reading/hearing a single word you cannot have an rpg. Perhaps the downfall too mmo's is that everyone wants to be a Game Master and when that happens your rpg game is ruined.

 

I will not bash the game nor expect anyone who likes it to agree with me. I simply do not like GW2 and there are many others like me with valid reasons why they do not like it as well. I also won't ever rate a game. I find consumers as a whole vote with their heart and not their brain which is why companies putting so much weight on meta-critic baffles me. 

+1.

This is a post worth to quote here once more. Very well put, sir, I'm with you all the way.

I honestly believe GW2 is a great game for what it is, only not an MMO I'd like to play or be excited about. For this reason I can understand those very low points in reviews at Metacritics.

I also want to add that Metacritics user reviews have reflected my opinions pretty accurately in terms of wether I have liked a  game or not. You just have to be able to read between the lines and see through the bias.

No idea why some of you guys are obsessing about some bad scores. What is important is the average and 8.5, which means it is really good, I feel is a very fitting score for this game.

9+ should really only be for truly amazing, ground breaking games and GW 2 is simply not that good.

Wait, hold on, have we finally decided if Metacritic is accurate or if its garbage yet?

 

Remember, if GW2 is doing well by some of use creating 10 accounts to give it 10 then it should be accurate.  But if it comes out as mixed review or less Metacritic is garbage. 

 

C'mon people!  Let's keep a united front and our stories straight!

Well there seems to be some patterns here:

1 negative review, 2 ratings

1 negative review, 2 ratings

1 negative review, 2 ratings

1 negative review, 2 ratings

And then the hardworking cousins with:

1 negative review, 1 ecstatic review and 2 ratings

1 negative review, 1 ecstatic review and 2 ratings

And those are just a few I clicked on page 1. Overall I would give that site a 1/10. I doubt many care about it anyway :-)

 

 

 

We dont need casuals in our games!!! Errm... Well we DO need casuals to fund and populate our games - But the games should be all about "hardcore" because: We dont need casuals in our games!!!

That's how the internet works.

if somebody sayd something positive about something you like and praises it to no end, that person is a well educated reviewer that clearly knows what he/she's talking about.

If on the other hand they say something negative, they are trolls, haters, idiots and other possible extra names.

you cant please everyone

i like GW2 but i can think a hell of a lot can be done to improve it.

 

but i'm aware that my "improvements" are the same as someone elses ideas for things that ruin the game.

My personal opinion on GW2 is that it's a breath of fresh air for the genre. A heavy focus on public quests and putting the social aspect back into the genre. WvW is also fun, and features like personal loot and the res mechanics might have sounded bad on paper to some of us (they did to me), but worked out brilliantly. The underwater areas are also top notch.

It's not perfect of course, and some will focus on those aspects (lack of challenge, repetition, not enough story development, mediocre class system). But personally, I've had a blast playing it. And I think it's great to see a developer come in and try a lot of things that are outside of the norm.

Look at 90% of them, praising TSW or D3.

It's kinda funny.

This is what i thought at first bu then i read those comments "Bugged quests everywhere"  or  "graphics worst then lotro"  i have all 5 races and played them all and havent ran into a single bugged quest except for 1. No'r have i heard peoople complain about it on any scale. And the worst gfx then lotro that is just obvious trolling and there are 60 comments like it on there all of a sudden. Most are not true bar for the grouping/overflow bug of course.

 

But metacritic atracts this sort of thing by nature , it really hurt funcom with tws too.

Metacritic has for the longest time been the place for players to vent their frustration over the most trival of issues, look at what happened with Diablo3 people were not rating the game they were rating the ability to log into the game hence many 0-3 scores.  Same is happening with GW2 people giving zero scores because of the known party issues and some login issues that as with D3 will be fixed in a few days.

Fanbois still can't grasp the concept that not everyone is going to like the game and others will have their own opinions on it. It is subjective, it is what you personally believe. I know it is a hard concept for fans to endure but it happens.

I wouldn't trust metacritic for anything. Or well, I wouldn't trust any review at all except for Totalbiscuit, but you get the best opinion by playing the game yourself or by talking to your closest friends.

What do you mean, almost all MMO reviews seems to be either 9/10 or 10/10 no matter what game they review. In fact if you took all MMO reviews in the worl and counted an average it would not be 5.5 as it should be but more 8 or so.

Ridicoulus enough for me.

But of course many people will hate any game, but I actully think there were more GW2 haters a month ag than today, that might be different tomorrowbut GW2 haters isnt something that suddenly popped out from nowhere, they been around since the game was intruduced 2 years ago at least.

No matter how much I hate a game I would never give a 1/10 rating unless said game is broken or unfinished to the point of unplayability. Lowest score simply from just not liking it for me would perhaps be a 3/10.

I'm all for criticism but some of the posts on MC are obvious trolls. Broken quests? Buggy gameplay? One guy says that no game is worth 10/10 then proceeds to give it a 2/10. Seriously? Those comments are either created by trolls, professional or not, or some extremely butthurt individuals or both.
 

Exactly...I started a thread on this earlier and was told by several people that I was a fanboi, had an agenda, cared too much, didn't look at the other side etc. etc.

I don't think most people got that folks giving GW 0-3 are actual, completely genuine, trolls.  There is no logical reason to give the game that low a score.  And sorry, if it's your "opinion" that the game deserves a 0-3, then you really don't know much about video games.

Still suffering from martyr complex i see.

I personally ignore reviews from users that give a game 10/10 or 0/10. I figure no game is really a zero, and a 10 is so exceptional it is near impossible. I really like guild Wars 2, and on my internal rating system I would maybe give it an 8. Or a 7.

Asking people to pick numbers is hard...people gravitate towards the extreme. Like when you ask what their pain is and tell them "10/10 is the worst pain imagneable", many people will be sitting there looking completely comfortable and still say 10/10. It's kind of funny.
