I found this review to be interesting, so I thought that I'd post it in the review section.

 

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ax-_06Acj8Y&feature=player_embedded#!

 

Just a heads up for those who find his videos entertaining or are on the fence and want an in depth video on game play and someone's opinion on it.

 

Note:  The video may contain profanity.

When faced with strife or discontent, the true nature of a man is brought forth. It is then when we see the character of the individual. It is then we are able to tell if he is mature enough to grin and bare it, or subject his fellow man to his complaints and woes.

Never seen his videos before,  but he does it in an interesting way to be honest.

Warning: His final verdict might hit the trolls and bashers hard.

Its a really good review and a great video.

I haven't seen a lot of his stuff, but I have seen him before.  Saw his shit for Fable 3 and man was that a funny (and accurate) video.

10/10 is what this game deserves.

As someone who hasn't tried GW2 yet (I will) Sometimes I get the invasion of the body snatchers feel. People who were normal suddenly become pod people. If I try GW2, will I become a pod person too? Maybe I shouldn't go to sleep.

Probably the most bias review ever, he doesn't even mention the auction house or the many down for maintenace messages you get in game. Complete lack of security and non existent customer service. Absense of any real endgame. Those are some of the games biggest problems and he doesn't touch on any of them? The only big issue he does mention is the WvW ques and that's only because he would lose all credibilitty whatsoever if he didn't.

The game is worth $60 but is hardly the best thing since sliced bread and wouldn't be special if it wasn't B2P.

All of what you mentioned is a matter of opinion and not necessary in a core review.  He also mentions End Game in his review, you just missed it.  In addition, just because a game doesn't have traditional "raids" doesn't mean it doesn't have end game; MMOs have existed for much longer than games like WoW.  Furthermore, customer service is pretty good considering the game just launched and working on issues that online games are prone to during such.  

To appropriately rate it (customer service) we will have to wait a few months when the game is under normal operations.  Even WoW has had a reply time of 2-5 days for years after it launched, and I've seen responses as quick as a few hours to a few days with ANET even with all that's going on.  Also, the lack of a authenticator does not mean lack of security; it would be nice, but they are pretty on the ball with email authentication and locking accounts that have been compromised as of late.  Heck, people are complaining that accounts are being banned so quickly for unauthorized access.

Lastly, he did mention that there were other faults, and that Anet was actively working on fixing them.  These are simply issues with the game being online, and not indicative of the content available for the game or how a person will pick it up in a few weeks (when servers are more stable) and play thenceforth.

When faced with strife or discontent, the true nature of a man is brought forth. It is then when we see the character of the individual. It is then we are able to tell if he is mature enough to grin and bare it, or subject his fellow man to his complaints and woes.

I won't argue with your first paragraph other than to say he did mention there are other problems and the vast majority of the ones you listed nearly ALL MMO's face either at launch at some other time in their life so it's not exactly any special by mentioning them.

Your last comment though is one I have read many times over since the launch of GW2 and to be quite honest it has to be hands down the worst.  THE ENTIRE REASON IT'S "Special" IS BECAUSE IT'S WORTH THE COST DUE TO THE B2P BUSINESS MODEL!  I can't really express enough how much Joe literally shoved that in your face during the review video.

Complete lack of security elaborate why GW2 is worse than other games here ?? and non existent customer service. Thats for sure an exsaggeration that borders outright lie. Absense of any real endgame.A personal oppinion that really doesn't matter for the review, and not controversial as what GW2 has for endgame has been clear for a long long time  Those are some of the games biggest problems in your oppinion though and are any of them really big problems a week into a MMO launch ?and he doesn't touch on any of them?Maybe you should see the review again , it looks like he touch some of it , just not saying what you want to here The only big issue he does mention is the WvW ques Actual he is just on the server with biggest ques at all, and that's only because he would lose all credibilitty whatsoever if he didn't. If you where right in all your complains he would have lost credibility long before that.

The game is worth $60 but is hardly the best thing since sliced bread and wouldn't be special if it wasn't B2P.

 

read how to create a succesfull mmo before posting about GW2. And read tao of ArenaNet before talking about innovation in GW2

Actually he does mention the absence of trading system in the "negative" part of the video, but good try anyway.

I think he does not mention server problems because all games that get this amount of people to buy it (so much that Anet has SUSPENDED selling the game due to massive demand) WILL have server problems, it is the unavoidable science of mathematics and plumbing.

The lack of security also has nothing to do with the game itself, plus they have added email authentication already, so if you get hacked it is your own damn fault at this point.

Can't say about the customer service, I have read both people complaining about it and people praising it as quite fast. It is weird there is no in game ticketing system though.

And as he said, none of the issues he mentions are stopping points.

I agree with his review.

Best....review....ever. Not because he rated in favor of a game I thorougly enjoy, but because he's just so freakin awesome! And at the end of the review when he gave the verdict I instantly wanted to login and play!

Bravo Angry Joe, Bravo. He's a no BS kinda guy the fact that he rates it 10/10 gives me more resolve than I already had in my decision to play the game.

Angry Joe's review of GW2 is the best GW2 review ever. I don't think any other review could be more infroming and more fun to watch than this one.

 

Remembers me why exactly i love GW2 so much.

I think the SWTOR reviewers get unfairly criticized for their reviews, which imho were mostly valid.

If the question is 'should I spend $x to buy the SWTOR box', then I'd have said '100% yes'.  The KOTOR series were loved by many, and most of those players would enjoy SWTOR for at least a month.  The storylines/planet designs/architecture were worth the box price to me, and most people seemed to agree.

If the question is 'should I pay $x a month to play SWTOR', then I'd have said 'lmao, no'.  The game had little longevity, the endgame was poor, and it seemed extremely expensive/difficult to add new content.

But how do you reflect that in a review, especially if (for population reasons) the reviewers didn't have the greatest view of the endgame...

I think for a gaming website, a review of 9x/100 for SWTOR is perfectly justified - if the player doesn't like the endgame, the majority can quit without feeling that they didn't get value for money.  (and it seems many players did exactly that).

 

To a degree the same is true of GW2... I don't know how much longevity the game has, or whether the servers will all break tomorrow... nor do the reviewers.  All they can say is "in my opinion it's worth the time & money to play it".

Always like his reviews, he simply talks about what he enjoyed and didn't enjoy in a honest (and angry :p) way, I appreciate that.

+ he does put a lot of effort into an interesting and funny presentation.
