For those of you who didn’t know, Guild Wars 2 is an MMORPG released by NC Soft and ArenaNet. I’ve been playing it for a while now and I can say that this game is in a league of its own. And dare I say, way better than World of Warcraft. And before you blow me to the nether realms into oblivion and beyond, let’s have a look at the facts, shall we?
Part 1 – The Graphics engine
My girlfriend likes me playing WoW because she enjoys the graphics. Then when she first caught me playing Guild Wars 2 she said – and I quote:
“WoW has nice graphics, but this is simply beautiful!”
To round it up about the graphics engine and not bore you half to death, it’s fancy and powerful. And it manages to put out very realistic figures throughout the game, be it character models, dungeons, swamps, glorious background or underwater environments. Because yes, there’s more than crabs, sharks and murlocs lurking in the MMO waters. Just have a look at these here pictures below and you’ll see why they speak for themselves…
