    I mean, if you want a good MMORPG experience, just get World of Warcraft or Guild Wars.
    If you really are into gaming, price doesn't matter.
    I currently have a subscription for World of Warcraft and I bought Guild Wars and I'm enjoying both simulteneously. I also play Lineage II on a popular private server for free with 1000's of other players. It happens that I run all 3 MMORPGs at the same time and switch windows to play.

    I played R.O.S.E. Online and Maple Story, but these games lack depth, graphics and good sound.
    jyuu can you tell me a bit more about guld wars?
    im really thinking of buying it

    Guild Wars relies heavily on player interaction. Where in World of Warcraft where you can do most quests alone, it's not the same thing in Guild Wars. You need to talk to other players to progress through the game.
    The story of Guild Wars is this:
    MASSIVE SPOILERS!!!!

    You start off in a city called Ascalon where everything is pretty and peaceful. Then come the Charr invasion. These minotaur-like creatures invade the land of Ascalon and detroy everything, including the capital city of Rin. You, together with your comrades, help Prince Rurik and his people (the Ascalonians) flee into the Kingdom of Kryta.
    However, things are not all peaceful there. The Undead are everywhere and you lend aid to a group of people called the White Mantle to chase the Undead away from Kryta. The White Mantle's sworn enemies are the Shining Blade, who, for some unknown reason hate the White Mantle. In a mission for the White Mantle, you and your comrades are captured by the Shining Blade and you discover that the White Mantle are evil. They kill the Chosen Ones to prevent a prophecy from happening.
    You flee from Kryta and go into the desert where you can Ascend. Ascension reveals your true self and purifies your spirit. Once Ascended, you earn the right to speak to the Seer. The latter tells you that the White Mantle serve fake gods which are in fact a race of powerful magicians known as the Mursaat. You are to travel to the Ring of Fire to find the way to defeat the Mursaat. But once you reach the Ring of Fire, you find out that it was an evil Lich who was behind everything and he's in fact the last boss.

    The gameplay of Guild Wars is very team combat-oriented. You choose your first class among:
    Warrior
    Mesmer
    Ranger
    Elementalist
    Monk
    Necromancer
    and you also get to choose a secondary class other than your primary one.
    You can only interact with other people in towns and mission outposts. There, you can trade, chat, buy new skills, get quests, form a party/group, etc.
    Once you set up a group and step out of town, your group are alone against the environment. You will not see players other than the ones in your party.
    Fighting is simple:
    You get to select 8skills in town to use outside. These skills require energy or adrenaline (known as rage for WoW players). In most MMORPGs, if you have the most kickass weapon/armor/skills, you are certain to be good. However, this is not the case in Guild Wars. Having a max-damage weapon will not be helpful at all if you cannot use your skills properly. Remember: You can only equip 8 skills at a time.

    During your long quest, you will find Arenas where you can fight against other people in a group of 4 vs 4.
    There's a place in the desert called the Tomb of Primeval Kings. There, you can form a group of 8 people. Your group will represent your region in an international tournament. You will fight against a team of another region in the Hall of Heroes where if you win, you earn a Celestial Sigil which you can use to buy a Guild Hall (or just sell it). Winning several times in the Hall of Heroes will earn your region the Favor of the Gods. The Gods will be pleased with the fighters of your region (America, Europe or Korea and soon Japan).
    When your region has the Favor of the Gods, their avatars will appear in the Temple of Ages, where you can pay 1 Platinum (1000 Gold) to earn the right to go into the Underworld or the Fissure of Woe. These places are extremely tough since they are filled with high level monsters.

    Basically, Guild Wars offers you the possibility to have a PvP only character to fight in arenas and Hall of Heroes only, or to create a Role-Playing character to progress through the story, fight in arenas, Hall of Heroes, unlock elite skills, get the best armor and weapons, etc.

    Guild wars is an awesome game, I've got it and its pretty good, the graphics are pretty good aswell, the only problem is that it takes time to play, and the game is almost impossible to play if you are a loner who doesn't usually like to form parties. Other than that, its a great game.
