Guild Wars 2 is the massively multiplayer online role-playing game from ArenaNet that blends beautiful visuals with real-time combat, incredible PvP, and so much more. As the biggest MMO release of the year, we had quite a lot to say about the game. Here's a snippet from our review:
"As someone with a dreadfully short attention span, real-time combat gives me endless joy. I could dodge to avoid attacks, block in real time and do some really awesome things like throw bolas to tie someone up. Another element that adds further speed to the gameplay is an ability to swap weapons immediately during battle. This allowed me to switch from a rifle to an axe immediately when my enemies had closed in, opening up boundless combination of strategies. A significant focus was put on underwater combat, and although it was initially hard for me to grasp, I'm now rather proficient with a harpoon. Further the transition from land to water movement and combat is so seamless it's barely noticeable."
