      Guild wars is a great game and after 3yrs of playing it I can still say that I continue to logon on a regular basis to play the game.
      This pack represents excellent value at under a third the price I paid for the same thing as individual packs.
      All four campaigns and there are no on-line fees, this is literally hundreds of hours of game play for £25 (I have personally clocked over 2,500hrs and still going).
      If you are new to this sort of game then be assured the learning curve is balanced and there are always people on-line willing to help.

      If you fancy giving Guild Wars a try, this is the pack to get.

       AMAZING

      Guild Wars is an amazing game with so many great features to it. There is so much to do with 10 proffessions to choose from each with a huge range of different skills and attributes. There are plenty of missions spread accross the three campaigns and quests on the eye of the north expansion and these missions vary in length and difficulty. The storylines are very gripping and there is also a range of different heroes and henchmen who can aid you in battle and heroes can be personalized with armour and skills that the player has unlocked. Not to mention the fact that once the game has been completed it can also be played again on hard mode to provide a challenge for even the most experienced of players. Theres more though, there are also many different titles that a character can earn and display under their character name when they reach a certain rank in the title. Different proffessions allow characters to battle in a range of different ways including combat, spellcasting, hexing, cursing and ranged attacks. Players can also have a secondary proffession and will have access to most of the skills for that proffession as well and the secondary proffession can be switched to any other proffession when their character reaches a certain point in the game. With all of this to do players will find this game exciting and addictive and will not get bored easily. For campaigns for the price of 18 pounds is an amazing bargain that anyone would be mad to miss out on. I got the complete collection for 35 pounds and it was definately worth the money and it saves money to buy the complete collection as to each campaign individually. Thank you for reading my review and I hope you found it useful.

      tell you now this is a fairly long review - enjoy :)

      starting at the start (Prophecies):-

      the game which can first is really a must for GuildWars players as the other games feature references to it and this will prove confusing to players who have not ventured through the lush and beautifully designed lands of Tyria (prophecies continent)
      the game is well made with a quality storyline and hundreds of side-quests which either impact upon the storyline or give a further backing to the lore of the storyline...
      the professions of the available characters vary nicly from healers (monk) - warriors - rangers - necromancers (cursers / undead masters) - mesmer (masters of illusion) - elementalists (harnace the power of the elements) - there is something here for everybody...all have advantages and weaknesses compared to others...but when played well can all beat the variety of monsters featured around the game world...

      Factions: (first add on)
      added two new professions (assasin (dagger using combo masters) and ritualists(spirit summoners, who can also do good damage) - these two professions are available to Faction players as well as the 6 generic professions from Prophecies!

      the scenery is still great with 4 distinct zones (starter area - city - jade sea - forest)!

      gameplay is a bit shorter than Prophecies but still providing long play tme with hundreds of additional quests...

      Nightfall (second expansion)

      two more professions added (dervish - scythe wielder, similar to warrior but with less armor but more damage) and paragons (spear users with immense damage and incredible party-wide armor buffs)

      the game has good gameplay again with different zones of scenery, from lush areas to baron wastelands! well designed and crafted for maximum enjoyment!

      the biggest add-on however in NightFall compared to Factions and Prophecies is the option to add heroes to your party (instead of the henchmen available in Factions and Prophecies) these act as allys similar to henchmen but you can customise their weapon sets as well as attribute points and skills - for additional support in battle!

      all of these games have 1000s of skills to choose from for perfect mix and match options...

      fantastic gameplay
      scenery
      playability
      millions of players so you can party up with other people if you wish too!
      many other things as well...

      hope you found this review of some help when it comes to picking this great MMORPG...hope you enjoy your purchase :)

       Guild Wars is a CORPG, not a MMORPG. Confused? Read on...

      Although many people still consider it as such, Guild Wars is not a MMORPG as it is currently known. ArenaNet itself uses the term Competitive Online Role-Playing game. Although they're not really in the same genre, I think the strengths and weaknesses of Guild Wars can be explained best when compared to World of Warcraft.

      First of all there is a level cap of 20. This may same weird if you're used to WoW, but this is because of the way your skillbar works. You must come up with a build of only 8 skills that complement eachother, using the skills available for your primary and secondary profession (your primary profession allows one of its elite skills). So you have to think strategically about your skillbar, and you don't have to micromanage 100 different skills. All the skills are carefully balanced and diverse, resulting in many interesting combinations.

      Secondly there is the absence of many fetch quests, and being forced to grind. The PvE content is largely built around 4 decent storylines (the "Factions" story is mediocre) consisting of diverse missions, with only small amounts of grinding involved. "Factions" for instance requires you to grind for reputation within a faction, but even then you can do a range of individual quests that reward you with faction points, which are generally more diverse than the average fetch quest.

      The two features above allow the game to put a bit more emphasis on actual player skill instead of time spent playing the game. Other nice features are a strong PvP system, high production values (talented art department and music by Jeremy Soule), and of course the lack of subscription fees.

      There are also disadvantages to the game. The biggest disadvantage is the instanced world. To me, WoW is so attractive because it has a huge persistent world. While the entire Guild Wars world is also quite big, you can only meet other players (outside of your questing party) within towns and outposts. Once you leave their gates, you're playing in an instance of a certain area. This makes the gaming experience a lot less immersive.

      Other disadvantages are the lack of different player races (you're forced to play as a human) and the complete lack of a trading system. I still don't really know why but if you want to trade with other players, you just use the local chat. This is incredibly annoying and time-consuming. Something like the Auction House from WoW would be wonderful but there' s just nothing there.

      To sum it all up:

      + Quality PvE and PvP experience
      + A bit more emphasis on skill instead of time spent
      + Well-balanced professions and skills
      + High production values (Art / Music)
      + No monthly fees

      - Instanced world
      - Only one player race (human)
      - Non-existent trading system

      I could have mentioned more aspects like guilds, but hopefully this review cleared things up a bit about the important differences between Guild Wars and a real MMORPG like World of Warcraft. All things considered I still prefer Guild Wars, but make up your own mind about the pros and cons when choosing an online RPG.

      Almost 5 years and i'm still playing.

      Do not be influenced by those who compare this game to other MMO titles - because it doesn't even begin to correlate. As an MMORPG fanatic, I can honestly say, without a doubt, that this is the best game of its genre. It's fun, strongly addictive, well-designed, hugely rewarding and absolutely beautiful. There's nothing quite like it. Essentially, it's an almighty combination of the best action-RPG properties in one package, and then some. On top of that, there are no monthly fees. Crazy!

      Buy it. You won't regret it.
