Guild Wars: Eye of the North (PC)

 

Guild Wars: Eye of the North (or GWEN, as players affectionately refer to it) is the first true expansion for the popular online role-playing game. Factions and Nightfall were both standalone products; Eye of the North requires players to own an...

Guild Wars: Eye of the North Review

 

After many additional installments, Guild Wars gets a true expansion to the game. Will the new skins, graphic updates and objects be enough to charm players over? Lets take a look and see.

The expansion also offers three entertaining mini-games that players can partake in: Dwarven boxing, Polymock, and the Norn Fighting Tournament. The player participates in these mini-games through quests and is pitted against enemies with differing...

Guild Wars veterans will love it, but Eye of the North isn't quite the grand expansion it wants to be.

Fun new PvE content; enjoyable mini-games; good storyline; excellent presentation; Hall of Monuments

PvE is still a bit simplistic; mini-games are PvE-only; middling henchman and hero AI; for advanced Guild Wars players only

Ultimately, if you enjoyed the previous games and are looking for more of the same, then Eye of the North will definitely scratch that itch.

Solid campaign and a variety of dungeons to explore; a fantastic artistic style; some interesting new minigames that mix up the gameplay

The campaign is much shorter than previous games; the art style is greatly limited by the aging graphics engine; the recycled music; no new PvP content

Is a must have for any Guild Wars fanatic.

 

Overall though I would have to say that even with the cons Guild wars Eye Of The North is a must have for any Guild Wars fanatic. Additional armor sets are really what did it for me as most of them are astheticly pleasing and hold some sort of pretsige...

It has new content for those who have level 20 characters. There are plenty of new areas for players to explore and the map for an expansion game is pretty impressive. New skills are always welcome and a plethora of new heros are available as well

Now for the cons... the enemy groups in eye of the north all have the capability to kill your team in 4-5 hits which gets really old after a while. Huge areas also add some level of agony as you will spend a good deal of time getting to the next area

It's a winter wonder land, but more intense!

 

Its great, for thoes who have a lot of time to spend on Cartographer, Slayer and Not To___ titles. But it sends you all over the place, which is sorta random and tiring.

Its a new addition to the GW campaigns, more territories to go and new NPC/Henchies to join your team

All over the place, Norns, Asurans, and Charr Land. It doesn't offer and new Hero's to get, and its basically a title hunting expansion

Guild Wars: Eye Of The North

 

Guild Wars has been around for over two years now, and with a level cap of twenty that hasn't been raised in three add-ons, Guild Wars enthusiasts are most likely getting a little bored of the repetitive arenas and old maps. Fortunately for them,...
