Guild Wars 2

Navigation/Usability

I think the navigation is simple to use. The categories have everything you need to find your way around and the drop down menus look good. I did notice while using Chrome, that some of the menu option would disappear, not allowing you to click on them.
You can easily change to a prepared language at the top right of the page which makes it accessible to more types of people. It also clearly links off to their forums, support section and game wiki.

Colour Scheme/Design

Their design works really well! It has been designed to match their concept art that was created for the game. It also matches the game itself, by using the same concept art for in-game movies and animations. It matches the forums and the wiki really nicely.

The colour chosen for this site is a good choice. The dark on white always works well for contrast and the grungy style header is very pleasing to look at.

Content/Information

Looking through this site makes me believe that it pretty much has all the information I would need to know about this game. It has a nice help section with a lot of already answered questions and allow you to ask your own.

I give this site 4/5

World of Warcraft

Navigation/Usability

This site has a very nice navigation. Its not too long or has too many options. The game guide has everything you would need to know is very nicely laid out to make it easy to read whether your a gamer by heart or just a passer by wanting to learn more about the game. The search system works well so its easy to find exactly what your looking for if you cant find it through he navigation.

Colour Scheme/Design

This site definitely looks great! Its exactly how you would imagine it would look for this game, full of colour and a beautiful navigation bar. I like how it changes to look like there most recent expansion with a new background and additional icons with a new header.

Content/Information

I can say that I dont have a problem finding any information on this site. There forums work great and are easy to use. They have a fantastic support and ticket system that really doesnt take to long to get replied to. They game guide section has everything and more to learn the game with and is nicely laid out.

I give this site 5/5

Navigation/Usability

The navigation bar is simple and the layout of it makes it easy to find your way around the site. The thing I have a problem with is when you go to some of the community areas, the main navigation changes and the only way to get back, is to press the back button.

Colour Scheme/Design

The header and backgrounds are nice, great animated design. Maybe run slow on some peoples computers due to old PC or slow internet. They have a lot of animated parts, be it the background or the classes and races. It does look nice and allows you to see what the game might be like. Some of the frames around the info boxes with an image inside, are too big for the out container when viewing on Chrome. Also its not completely symmetrical in places, so looks rather odd.

Content/Information

I think it covers all the information you need, its easy to find and understand. The community section and forums work well and are simple to use and connect.

I give this site 3/5

Eve Online

Navigation/Usability

I like this site because of its easy navigation and dropdown boxes. I just wish it left breadcrumbs when your looking through some of the pages. You can easily change the language of the site though there are not many options. I also dont see a searchbox anywhere to help find things.

Colour Scheme/Design

The design is quite minimal showing almost all of the background. It is nice to look at and has a simple showcase style slideshow with only text. It has a nice universe map that you can move around yourself and click on the stars and planets, but some of them dont load for me on Chrome.

Content/Information

I think it lacks information for a new comer to show what the game is about. I would guess that its like a Star Wars game, but actually you dont get to walk around with a character, only fly in a ship.

I give this site 3/5

Star Wars The Old Republic

Navigation/Usability

I think its simple to get around this site and find what you want. The support section is good with plenty of FAQ sections for different areas. I dont find it hard to get to where I want and I dont think it would be difficult if you are new to these types of websites.

Colour Scheme/Design

It looks good, it looks like a Star Wars gaming site and it looks stylish. It stays in the right theme for a space type game and it looks technological and not fantasy style like the others. This works very well for this game. It was recently updated and for the better!

Content/Information

The Holonet is very informative  I can get all information on all the species and planets and everything else in the game here. It doesnt leave you wondering about anything and it doesnt give useless information.

I give this site 5/5
