    For veterans of the series, you will gladly find your love for it refreshed and charged, once again to play through this new glorious setting and deeper plotline, incorporating two new character classes and hero customisation to keep you online and campaigning for hours on end.
  2. Nightfall is easily the best of three Guild Wars products and has set a very high bar for the next chapter. [Jan. 2007, p.76]
  3. If you're already a Guild Wars player, Nightfall is worth it for the story, continent, professions, and heroes. If you're new, Nightfall is the best installment so far, and a great place to start with this deservedly ultra successful MMO.
  4. Any fan of the series, already dedicated to playing the game at least a few hours a week, will find this well worth the investment.
  5. Unmistakably similar to the previous two games in the innovative Guild Wars series, Nightfall features an impressive new Egyptian-themed continent to explore through plenty of solo and cooperative questing.
  6. A great chapter and one that can easily be picked up and played through for beginners like myself without becoming bewildered by past game lore.
  7. There's a lot of enjoyment and variety to be found here, and Nightfall certainly adds enough for fans of Guild Wars to make the purchase, while the fact that there's no monthly fee is enough of a plus point to recommend this to MMORPG fans who haven't tried Guild Wars before.

    I hoped this was better than Factions and an equivalent of the Profecies... But I was wrong, this stand alone-expansion is indeed better than I hoped this was better than Factions and an equivalent of the Profecies... But I was wrong, this stand alone-expansion is indeed better than Factions and even better than the original! Nice as a stand alone, but I think when you have the 3 sets now, you'll be more happy.

With a whole new continent, a very large one I should say, and even more classes, this is an absolute must! Expand

    This game has single-handedly killed the guild wars franchise. Before this, PvP was balanced, interesting, and a lot of skilled people playedThis game has single-handedly killed the guild wars franchise. Before this, PvP was balanced, interesting, and a lot of skilled people played it. Now, PvP is just a bunch of PvE noobs spamming 1-2-3 on their keyboard. Unless repeatedly pressing 1-2-3 on your keyboard is a challenge for you, don't buy this game for its PvP. The only thing left to do in this game is grind PvE, but if your intellect is so low you actually enjoy that, there are far better alternatives. Expand
