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.
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.
    My impression of GW2 after one hour of play
  Where did he say he was doing an in depth review?
And yet you claim his review is valid which it's not.   Is a movie critic that passed a reveiw based on a preview a valid reveiw?  No it's not.  
  How fast after seeing a movie trailer do you decide if you want to see that movie?
All the time, but how often does a movie trailer only show the good stuff in the trailer?  All the time.

You don't believe the starting areas of guildwars 2 are designed to portray new player experience in the most positive light?

Even arena know that the first few hours of gameplay must be enticing for the new player so they set it up in such a way to be cozy. if it wernt players would switch of and uninstall.

Like it or not, people take first impressions very seriously.

Oh, and just so I'm staying on subject:

 

** Attention would be Guild Wars 2 purchasers.  If you buy this game and play it for an hour, you may not like it.  That is all. **

 

There, did I do my job civil job of warning the public?

So you approve of blatant trolling and trying to stir up a fanbase while offering no useful criticism in return.

You approve of sweeping generalizations.

You approve of judging something without playing it.

and finally you don't approve of alternate styles of play besides grinding from quest hub to quest hub to level.

Did I get everything?

Obviously your opinion, but then people tend to get hurt and beaten when they speak it to loud in the wrong manner. Ever wondered why?

 

Atleast the OP disguised his opinion in smooth words, maybe a lesson to be learned?

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.  

 

Quite, the thread title is pretty candid about what it is. The best course of action is to explain how these initial impressions might not represent  the game as a whole, or things that can be done to mitigate issues.

 What's worse than rampant fanboism? rampant fanboism in a game you are looking forward too.

Hey I don't blame OP for what he wrote. I just laugh at his number 9. He took the time out of his 1 hour gameplay to test this out XDXDXD

 

A) It was a stress test and they did say some things wouldn't work properly. I myself quit an hour earlier because of some issues.

B) You are in low level zone, it tends to get more fun once you venture out of the walls of the big cities.

I'll try to give each of your points, agree, disagree or a complete idiot.

10) Camera follows your character very lazily and isn't braced properly when filming. I.e. you move the mouse left while holding right mouse button, and the camera floats gracefully for a moment before and after the turn. Everything is very graceful and beautiful and elegant when turning the camera casually, but when you are flipping the camera around like mad and spinning it like you will in pvp and know what you're doing, you don't get the same crisp response as you do from other MMOs with better camera control.

You can also change speed of camera rotation in the options :) Agree

 

6) Your 1st weapon ability can be mapped to "autoattack" mode, which it is by default. If mapped to this mode, your character basically spams the 1st weapon ability non-stop when a tab-target is in range and you initiate combat. The feeling I get is that autoattacks are the lifeblood of GW2, despite the popular opinion that there are no autoattacks in GW2. I found myself clicking absolutely nothing in some fights because the 1st weapon ability spam is pretty effective (yes this is early level, but fact of the matter is I just need to tab target --> autoattack and I'm doing good damage and killing mobs effectively with no interaction on my part.

You're right, first few levels 1-3 is pretty much just spamming the "1" key because A) You don't have too many skills and B) The monsters are pretty easy. The developers stated they did this so newer players are eased into this different type of combat. Trust me, once you get like level 5 and with a full skill set, combat is more dynamic and challenging. Still for some classes, you COULD just spam "1" to kill a monster, but it'll take a lot longer. Disagree

 

8) Can't zoom the camera in or out while holding the right mouse button to mouse look/turn, making dynamic zooming while in combat impossible. You need to stop what you're doing and stand still, zoom in and out, then you can move around again with your locked camera distance. No dynamic zoom for you.

Err... ok you are right that you can't hold down mouse keys and zoom in at the same time, but you DON'T ever need to stand still to zoom in. You want bad controls? Try Eden Eternal. Complete idiot

 

9) If you hold the right mouse button to mouse look/turn, and you wiggle the A and D key back and forth while moving forward (holding W), your character "wobbles" left and  right in a spastic way, sort of moonwalking on the ground texture but not taking any proper steps to do so. Looks extremely unpolished. On the other hand, not using the mouse to control your character and relying only on keyboard looks extremely smooth and well animated when turning using the keys. It is my belief that the animation for characters was tested only with keyboard turning movement controls (console design conspiracy?).

I think I understand what you are getting at. This is because unlike most games Guild Wars 2 has different seperate animations for upper body and lower body. So in most games the animations for upper and lower body are linked and hence appears smooth when doing above things. That's why it appears cloppy in GW2, but I only had a few of those moments, and only when I'm turning camera, jumping, casting skill, and auto attacking all the same time. Agree

 

11) World events are as boring and meaningless as in Rift - NPCs shout pointless information (made worse by the insufferable voice acting), and occasionally players will be around, killing stuff in the middle of the chaos. If you like, you can join the chaos and whack the closest tab-target, or just walk past this epic rerun script and move on to some other area.

 

I could call you a complete idiot for this one, but I won't simply because you only had 1 hour to do these and if you don't know what you are doing then it does appear to be boring and meaningless. When you say NPCs shout pointless information, I suppose you mean when you go talk to them (by pressing F). Because from my experience NPCs actually tell you whats going on. As an example, I wandered into a city to fix my gear and I hear this guy shouting something about ettins blocking the road and how they need help. I panned by camera around to find out where the sound was coming from. I found him, went and talked to him and he started leading me to the road block where an event was taking place. 

Another example, I was discovering/unlocking my map when all of a sudden I hear a little girls voice shouting "Help me, I'm trapped". Again I panned my camera around to see where the NPC is... couldn't find it and then the girl shouted again "I'm down here, I'm trapped and scared" (something like that, I don't remember exactly). So I start screening the ground, find myself a hole and jump thru. And that's how another dynamic event began, had to escort the girl back to her home. Disagree

 

5) The game looks decent, but the framerate is not optimized well. Most settings lowered or raised do not change the framerate much at all.

Stressing the servers so that launch/post launch these problems will be at a minimum. Agree

Not going to do 3 and 4 simply because I don't really care for this. The voice acting isn't all that important to me in a game, and all it adds is a bigger download for me! As for the storyline, I'm just so used to "fast forwarding" thru quest text, that this is another that I really don't care about very much. My biggest concern about dialogue is that it's easy to read (should I choose to read it) and decently translated ( for those asian MMOs brought to the west)

Also didn't do number 7 because I really can't say about this... it's like saying "I hate the low oxygen at higher altitudes"

Have played many hours, since BWE1, and agree with every point of the OP.   The game's still fun though, but yes it has faults.  Then again nothing's perfect.

Yeah I don't know what the OP is talking about. Asura VO is amazing all over (+ Zojja) and the rest of the VO is on par with most games out there.

I only agree with 1 and 2 the rest are either simple opinions or I had a completely different experience (facts)

My impression of GW2 after one hour of play

 

Where did he say he was doing an in depth review?

Reading comprehension has never been strong on forums. It's no wonder rational discussion and logical development of a pov is often pointless.

i guess it's a snap judgement whether you believe the guy is 'genuine' or 'a troll'. Whichever there is no mileage in mis representing what he said or using logical phallacies to discredit his first impressions.

That's balanced? Maybe because those who played the game don't agree with all of the OPs points?

 You know what? You're right.  I wasn't trying to get this locked though I was being honest.  However, a good conversation is always better than mockery and jerkism.  I retract my joke comment and will keep with my inquiry as to why so much work was put into an hours worth of gameplay.

I'm thinking along the lines of the games fun to play, but has many perceived faults?

Ladies and gentlemen, this is the kind of post that makes us attack the people like the OP. You spout off things like its a fact and base your statements on nothing. If you're gonna try to troll, please try harder.

To the bolded part of your post, what exactly is wrong with that? More options in a game is never a bad idea. The fact you see it as one is a startling thing to me.

/scratch's head. I just don't get it. I know people are trying to state their opinions on the game, but everytime I read these topics I seriously ask myself if they are being serious. I played the betas, I know whats in the game. I know whats bad and good in it. The fact I read these topics and ask myself "Huh? That was bad?" speaks volumes of how many people just can't move on from the old dated style MMORPGs have been doing since they were created.

The main thing that has me hesitant about buying this game is the auto-attacking skill. It's entirely cheeseball and as you stated, watching the same exact animation for days worth of playing time would be horrible.

 

I liked the mesmer class but the animation for the 2 handed sword auto-attack just feels so clunky. That's another thing, weapon based skill sets are a big meh for me. I remember when TERA came out people tried to compare the GW2 combat to it saying it's also action - I just don't see it. Some classes might have a skill shot or two, but it's mainly AoE circles and tab target combat from what I've seen.

 

And to make matters worse, FIFA 13 comes out around the same time too lol! If this game had a sub I don't think it would be as hyped as it is. However, seeing as how it doesn't, it makes you think "ah what the hell why not". I'm on that boat currently.
