[MMO] Marvel Heroes


Free to play Marvel MMO that is more in line with Diablo 3 than WoW. One of the big wigs making it was involved with Diablo creation so no surprise there.

Random thoughts?

Plays like that. Click lots. Fire the odd ability. Lots of loot dropping. Simple loot for slots which follows familiar color scheme. Graphics are okay. Lots of lag in certain areas. Some areas are public and some are private. There appears to be a story line to it revolving around Dr. Doom and the cube that has everyone interested (see Thor, Captain America and The Avengers movies – yeah, that cube). Tree skill which has actives and passives – I missed this system. It is free to play – no cost to buy. You can pick from five starter characters (Daredevil, Hawkeye, Storm, Scarlet Witch and The Thing). You get a second character shortly into the game (I had Hawkeye and Daredevil). Nice thing about it being based on superheroes, established ones, the abilities are semi memorable and signature. Can purchase more heroes, different outfits, lots of power ups and experience boosts. Oh, and vanity pets I think. There is some crafting but I didn’t get into it (I’ll never cease to be me).

Major grievances?

It seems like every time there is a patch to the game, I have to download and install it all over.

For the graphics detail, it seems to under perform and lag quite a bit, more so when more people are on screen doing stuff.

Bottom line?

It’s okay but I’m not going to go out of my way to recommend it to people. Want something to kill some time on here and there? Go for it.
