While the expansion crashed a few times on my laptop before the 64-Bit client was released, I’ve had nary another major bug since launch. It’s definitely a polished experience, and the fact that there was no downtime to deploy the expansion is nothing short of eye-opening to what a studio can do for its fans if it tries.
Its Guild Halls and Stronghold mode help to offer new means of entertainment for returning fans, supported by a compelling story that is the expansion's greatest triumph. Guild Wars 2's first expansion is a modest addition for fans of the original, but those who haven’t found themselves captivated by it already are unlikely to walk away satisfied.
In an age when too many MMORPGs rely on the same old formula, Guild Wars 2: Heart of Thorns does a commendable job of evolving the gameplay that's made it so popular over the years. When it stumbles, it's in its ostensibly open-ended mastery progression that's more set in stone than it seems, and in its heavy group and dynamic event focus that doesn't always jive with empty maps.
