Advantages: free to play
I have been playing Guild Wars off and on for the last 5 years, and it has been a great ride. This game never gets old, and I love logging into it almost every day.
Guild Wars has been going on for a long time, and there have been many expansions. If you are just getting into the game, expect a lot of the players to already be leveled up to the max and explored areas that you won't see for a long time. Don't let this worry you, you'll still be able to find characters in the growing guild wars world that are starting off like yourself and can team up with you throughout the game. I still see new players on there asking for advice and learning how the game is played.
Guild Wars is an MMORPG, which means that all gameplay is online. The community is large, so you can usually find players with you to go on quests. The great thing about Guild Wars is that if you can't find a group to mission with, there are computer characters that you can add to your party for support. They are usually at a level similar to the enemies, so they are helpful for the missions around that area.
There is a great economy in Guild Wars. There are a lot of active players that trade items, materials, runes, and other equipment that will help your character throughout the game. There is even a section on the chat feature dedicated to the market, so anyone announcing their sales can be heard through that filter.
The graphics of the game are great. They aren't spectacular to today's standards, but they were great for their time and still hold a candle to today's games. The sound is superb, both in the music and the voices.
The gameplay itself is fun, and long. There are a lot of main quests, and many more sidequests. This game has a ton of gameplay hours and doesn't get boring at all. You can always find someone in the game willing to do a sidequest with you to futher the storyline.
The best part about this game is that it is free-to-play. After you buy the game, there are no further charges for playing it online. This is great for people that only play every so often and don't want to play a monthly fee.
For the price that you can get this game at, I would suggest picking up a copy of this game and installing it on your PC. You won't be disappoined!
Summary: a great game
