Guild Wars Prophecies (PC)
Advantages: Great fun to play, keeps you interested for hours.
Disadvantages: Small glitches with graphics, some missions can take a lot of time.
When i started playing this i was truely addicted, it has a compelling story that makes you want to play it for hours and hours.
Here is a breakdown of the game -
The first time i logged in and saw this game i thought the graphics were great, for how big the maps are in the game, the detail us amazing there are a few glitches like being able to walk through certain things however i think you have to expect that with how much there is in that game.
As soon as you log in you can choose whether you can the campaign or the pvp mode, campaign is where you do all quests and missions and pvp is where you play against other players, you are able to name and create everything about your character weight, height, facial attributes, hair, and clothes. You can then choose what type of character you would like e.g. Warrior, Ranger, Monk, Necomancer, Mesmer, Elementalist. Each of these have different spells and skills you can have. As soon as you have made the character you can go straight into the main game as to where you are able to start playing with other players.
You can have up to 5 different characters in the game and are able to purchase another two for a certain price.
The in game quests allow you to earn experience and different spells and weapons, these give you a challenge that get harder as you go on in the game, the experience you earn from quests help you to go up in levels and earn skill points to get more skills. The quests vary, some of which are just travelling to new towns ans some are more challenging.
The missions present a bigger challenge than quests however these are key to carrying on in the game and the story, you are able to earn a lot of experience from each of the missions and skill points.
You can earn extra experience and skill points on each for completing the bonuses.
There are many events put on by Guild War's one of which is halloween as to where Mad King comes to one of the cities and players can earn rewards from him, it is a truely great event that is unmissable and great to be a part of. From there you can get rewards like tonics that turn your character into different halloween characters and alcahol, sweets etc.
This is similar at christmas where prizes are given away and there is a huge celebration with fireworks and christmas presents given out to all characters, again there is alcahol, sweets, and transforming tonics.
Overall this is great value for money and a game that you can have hours of fun playing.
Summary: The game is worth every penny.
