This si all very meaningless.

TTH SWTOR review:

Gameplay- 90

Graphics- 87

Sound- 95

Multyplayers- 90

Value-77

Lasting appeal- 82

Overall- 88 out of 100

 

TTH Rift review:

Gameplay- 97

Graphics- 95

Sound- 90

Multyplayers- 97

Value-90

Lasting appeal- 77

Overall- 95 out of 100

 

Yeah, TTH is completly reliable as a source of completly accurate reviews, specially since, as other pointed out, GW2 as not even been out 1 month.

Really, why do you care OP? These reviews from "profissional" websites are completly useless. If you like GW2, that's all that matters, if not, the same.

Anyone trying to use these reviews as proof of a game's quality, be it good, mediocre or bad, is dreaming.

And i like GW2 alot more than SWTOR, and more than Rift.

Actually have seen these fixed in the last 24 hours. Can now join my family who plays and mail is working fine. I do hate that the Trading Post is still up and down though.

For me, a game that has such a large base starting the game than most other MMO's that have been released, and the speed that items are being fixed, I give Anet credit. That, and the fact that NONE of the above have prevented me from playing (just on that first pre-launch day for 3 hours....normal MMO outage)

But, I AM a Guild Wars fanboy, true and bred. It is the only RPG, online, that I have continually gone back to..compared to WoW, EQ2, AoC, etc...for the last 7 years of it's life.

That says a lot to my commitment and the commitment of Anet to make a fun game.

I expect GW2 to continue this route.

My review 85% - great mmo/action game, awesome value.

 I'm not sure if anyone really takes these type of reviews seriously as I know I don't and never have. These days you can pretty much beta test someone and get a good idea from trying to break a game in beta as to wheather it's worth your time. In the games current state I feel 75% would be a decent score, but what does that mean.

Well to me it means I like the look and feel to the game, I am not a fan of The Black trading Post, but this is because I ended up with two extra character slots due to lag when I pressed the button it too all my gems and I only wanted one slot. Customer service is very slow and poor. Could not play for 4 hours on first day due to login server, but that's not a game killer for me. Things I like is the way I can play the game when i want and not feel i have to get to lvl 80 today. I'm not a PvP player but love the WvW and feel this will bring more people into PvP side of things. I'm to lazy to be a PvP'er if I'm honest.

I do like the eye candy it has a good mix and I like the cut scenes unlike the way Swtor did them it's all syncs. All in all I feel my mark of 75% reflects what i like and dislike about the game and of course there are many other + & - factors of which there are to many but I did try to name then ones which impacted me.

I'm off on a cruise on Sunday so when I get back in 12 days time I'm hoping most of the issues will have been resloved, but lets see.

I don't think people give enough credit to the amount of work that goes into an MMORPG when compared to another type of game like a multi-player FPS, an iOS game, or even a single player sandbox RPG like Skyrim.


MMO's are huge technological achievements in and of themselves, just from a software development standpoint. There aren't many applications developed in any industry that can rival the complexity that we see in MMO's.


Yet, we rate them right along side other games and treat them like they are equivalent. This is why, I think when a game comes out of this genre that is so breathtaking, reviewers are quick to give credit where credit is due. Anyone that's been involved in software development or IT at any point in their lives (including many game reviewers) can appreciate just the massive scale, and coordination, and time it must take to roll one of these games out.


When something like Guild Wars 2 comes out and just completely blows you away, I think it is correct to rate them on a bit of a curve. Yes, there are a few nagging glitches that might bring down a score on a much smaller title. But when you look at the scope of GW2, it's very hard not to be impressed with what they've produced.


94 is a very fair score for this game, and all things considered, I expect this will be near the median score on this game overall.

The gfx score is much too high, I agree.  Sound FX are stand out great in this game, but the music is kinda blah.

Other than those things, I gotta pretty much agree with the scores.

I'm done with paying any attention to these sites for their reviews. They're an absolute joke anymore and pushed out so quickly it is fairly obvious they were done without much hands on with the game.

1. For god's sake mmo gamers, enough with the analogies. They're unnecessary and your comparisons are terrible, dissimilar, and illogical.

2. To posters feeling the need to state how f2p really isn't f2p: Players understand the concept. You aren't privy to some secret the rest are missing. You're embarrassing yourself.

3. Yes, Cpt. Obvious, we're not industry experts. Now run along and let the big people use the forums for their purpose.

I agree, 80-85 % is a fair score. 97% is just ridicilous and just shows how close the gaming media is to major gaming corps. 97% sound?? There is no way you can justify that.

agree on the sound point. When it works it is nice but ive had a few issues where the sound effects didnt start right away 80-85 is fair for sound since it didnt happen by once or twice.

It doesn't matter at this point.  They are currently limiting sales to slow down the numbers of players joining.  They don't make money from subs.

Whatever the reviews say, Anet is already won.

No no, but the game's not that innovative and... and... and raids.... and fanbois... HYPE LOLOL

So ANet gets to feed their families.  In the big picture, who really lost here?  Going by some of these posts, you'd swear a crisis needed to be averted.

The people on this site never cease to amaze me.

Gameplay 90% is a fair score - if you like "standard" MMO gameplay GW2 does what WoW/ToR/Rift/Tera/TSW etc. do and does it better. If you don't and prefer sandbox/EvE style gameplay, your idea of whether or not 90% is valid or not is irrelevant.

Graphics 97% is a somewhat fair score - Art/style of this game is 100% easily, but that is up to the reviewers subjective analysis of style. Technically the gfx are far lower than 97% considering DX9 and such, but for a MMO the gfx are on par if not better than everything else out there save maybe TERA and TSW in terms of raw graphical fidelity on a technical level. If it were a FPS it'd be no where near 97% but as a MMO, which it is, 100% for style/art and maybe 85% for MMO gfx would make a truly "fair" score more like 90-92%.

Sounds 97% is spot on - SPOT on. You need to play the game with headphones and stop and LISTEN for a minute, you'll agree 97% might not even by high enough.

When you use a gun, the sound the bullet casings make when they hit the floor are different based upon what material you are standing on (wood/metal/dirt etc.) and that is just ONE example of how amazing and complete and well thought out the sound in this game is (as it enhances the game play experience.) and music is phenominal / top notch Jeremy Soule.

Multiplayer 95% is also SPOT on. There is only 1 activity in the entire game that is not multiplayer, and even that CAN be multiplayer. Personal story - can be solo'd but you can also bring up to 3 friends in with you.

Value 95% is SPOT on - B2P AAA MMORPG 'nuff said. It'd be 100% if there were no cash shop for cosmetics and helper items.

Lasting Appeal 95% is questionable - but only because this is SUCH a personal / subjective measure. You cannot objectively judge lasting appeal - you can only comment on the amount and variety of content in the game and whether or not it can be predicted that said amount and variety of content will continue to expand post release - and everyone is confident in ArenaNet to do just that.

The numbers listed about don't have categories for the issues the game is experiencing which are all network related - queues, join other players on overflow, mail, login, trading post, ALL network issues not issues with the game.

Graphics: 10/10 - I just love the art style and the graphics, couldn't care less if it's not DX11. ArenaNET's graphic and art team is definitely one of the best of the industry. Everything in the world is handcrafted. Beautiful.

Sound: 10/10 - I find no flaws in the sound, the combat sounds are awesome, with the sword not making the same sound when hitting metal, rock or leather. The music is simply top notch. NPCs chatting all over the world make it feel alive. For reference, I gave the same note to SW:TOR. The two games just sound like they should do, and both have ace composers for their music.

Gameplay: 9/10 - Everything is generally fun, pleasing, dynamic and smooth. Best MMO gameplay since WoW. I only give 9/10 because of the occasional lag which make abilities like "charge like" skills not work properly. Crafting is very well done, love the discovery system, and it's steamlined into the gameplay. Level downscaling is just the best thing since sliced bread.

Role Playing: 8/10 - it's not a sandbox, but RP possibilities are great in this immersive environment. still lacking fluff stuff like housing, fishing, etc... but I have no doubt those will be added in time. LOTRO didn't have them at release either.

Value: 10/10 - I'm having a blast, and for the price and no subscription, you can't beat it. Best value in MMORPG land.

Fun: 10/10 - How can I put anything lower when every second in the game is a pleasure, and I can't stop playing?

Community: 8/10 - everybody has generally been nice and friendly so far, I've only seen very few "chat idiots" during these last 6 days. Quite a few really stupid character names too, but hey... it's a MMORPG.

Performance/Lag - 8/10. The game runs smooth, but the guild and auction house problems are getting annoying now. Can't put anything lower than 8 because the game runs flawlessly, but can't put anything higher either because of those problems.

Customer Service - 7/10. I would have given 9/10 if the forums were up. The ticket I made about guild problems was answered fast and efficiently. I also love how they give short bans to people culprit of chat rudeness and rule breaking names.

 

My overall note (not an average) would be 9/10. Best fun I had in a MMORPG since a very long time.

My only problem with that review was on Gameplay. I mean, only 90% is pretty low, should've been around 95%

Graphics 97% is a nice value because the game does have some of the best GFX ever. When you post a score about graphics there are lots of considerations, other than texture quality, like art direction, and Guild Wars 2 has simply put the best art direction I've seen in years. The game might be missing some latest DX11 features but it does have beautiful visuals and hand-crafted zones. The view distance is a killer as well, better than any other game out there, you can literally see as far as you want. So while a 97% might have been a bit high, anything below 95% would've been very low, considering the art style of the game

Sound 97% again sound is about judging the overall experience. Music is great, and you can even add your own soundtrack. Sound effects are top, all skills/abilities have their audio queues so you understand what is happening even without looking at your character effects screen. Voice acting is a bit limited but that's not enough to lower the score below 90%

Multiplayer 95%, honestly I haven't seen a game that better describes "multiplayer", so I would've given it a similar score here

Value 95%, compared to the vast variety of games out there, for a mere 60e I got more value per euro, and there is still more to see in the game.

Lasting appeal 95% cannot be judged by a few days. Need more time to judge this one, I'm not even level 80 myself

Whatever the reviews say, Anet is already won.

Tell that to WAR and AOC.

Also, why does TTH put so many gameplay features together in the "Gameplay" section but places GFX and Sound on the same level? I find it a weird review style.

I get that they're important, but why place features like PVE and PVP, for example, in one go?

Gamesplay 90%

Graphics 97% (You got to be kidding nearly the best GFX ever.... jokers)

Sound 97%

Multiplayer 95%

Value 95%

Lasting appeal 95%

No mention of the various issues plaguing GW2 game itself or Anet I guess I shouldn't expect more from them tbh.

 

My review 85% - great mmo/action game, awesome value.

I agree, 80-85 % is a fair score. 97% is just ridicilous and just shows how close the gaming media is to major gaming corps. 97% sound?? There is no way you can justify that.

why the music is perfect 

the guy who made the elders scrolls  music is the one doing gw2  and its perfect

Review scores are just the opinion of the reviewer, if you fail to comprehend that then you need to get educated.

I'd rate GW2 as a 5/10 right now (about average) as an initial impression, but as I play it more that is likely to rise.
