Guild Wars Factions


When the first beta tests were held, Dignews was one of the first sites to take part and offer up major coverage of NCsoft's industry-challenging vision for an online RPG-style gaming experience that did not require a monthly fee to keep playing. We...

Guild Wars: Factions


Many of us have been waiting for Factions with a high degree of expectation. Others have no idea what they're getting into. Either way it's a blast. Guild Wars is the MMORPG that has NO subscription fees. You simply buy the game and you're on your way...

An excellent follow up to Guild Wars.

Guild Wars Factions Review


The first successful, free MMO has a huge expansion waiting for eager PC gamers.

By the time you're ready to leave the first island, where the tutorial and monastery are located, you will probably have made it over halfway to level 20, the games cap. A broad range of skills is also made available to the player to start off with, in...

Guild Wars: Factions


I remember when I first heard about Guild Wars. It sounded like a neat idea - an MMO that was, in many ways, a spiritual successor to Diablo. When the initial screenshots were released, the game looked ok. It wasn't bad by any means and was better than...

Overall, Factions is an excellent package. While players of Prophecies may look at it and see a $50 price tag and complain, the game is truly complete - it isn't just a straight up expansion pack. A new player could go out, pick up a copy of Factions...

Guild Wars Factions


It's not an expansion, but it is more than you could have ever hoped for.

Rich, exciting new continent of Cantha; tons of new content for veterans; a self-contained experience fit for newbies

A lot of the content caters towards higher-end guilds

Guild Wars Factions


The follow-up to the innovative Guild Wars features a large new fantasy world to explore and enough competitive and cooperative role-playing action to easily keep you busy for weeks.

Intriguing action RPG gameplay gets your pulse racing but keeps you thinking ; Enormous gameworld offers a ton of competitive and cooperative action ; Interesting and dynamic new mission types, including frontline alliance battles ; Stand-alone game...

Despite the multiplayer focus, communicating with other players feels clunky ; The most enticing new content caters mostly to the hardcore

Having both the original game and Factions installed adds still more layers of complexity, by letting you experience the content from the respective continents in new ways, with characters who originated on the other side. Like in the first game, just...

Guild Wars: Factions (PC) review


The original Guild Wars was the first time I really got into an online RPG. Notice I say RPG rather than MMORPG because Guild Wars was different. Although thousands could be playing online at any one time, you would only ever see these people in the...
