    Not definitely sure if it's a step forwars Prophecies, but it's surely a huge step beyond Factions, The new champain is well programmed, xp-ing is not that slow as in Proph,still limited in time thorught the acquiring of specifical titles. The mechanics that lay under force you (and it's not bad) to explore and evolve. Nightfall is a must have game for all mmorpg fans.

    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.

    Excellent Game, no monthly fees, good graphics, the fairest for the new comers and veterans.

    Yet again ArenaNet shows they can make a quality mmo, or in this case and campaign addition to an already great product! With a whole new continent, a very large one I should say, and even more classes, this is an absolute must!

    A huge step forward from the original guild wars. And two steps forward from Factions. The PvE environment lush and open. And the plot is actually interesting. Quests have move beyond the simple point A to B quests. Hero system very good.

    This game provides the whole spectrum of game players (casual, hardcore, competitive) something to enjoy.

    The best GW has to offer right here. You get an awesome new continent with a great story. New heroes, skills, and titles that you get gameplay bonuses for leveling up. Highly recommended.

  1. as adventures go Nightfall feels much more open than previous Guild Wars modules. While many of the quests had been tied to tightly linear the maps, the missions of Nightfall are far more open-ended.
  2. The new Dervish and Paragon professions add a lot of flavor to both role playing and PvP. Yet, the game's story takes a long while to pick up, and some design issues from previous games still exist.

    Story aside, the campaign shines. The pacing's on par with Factions in terms of how quickly you gain levels (not that those matter much in Guild Wars anyway), and the game's 20 missions present lots of replay incentive thanks to a tiered reward system.
