Summary: This game is in every way shape and form a step back from a game that already came out 10 years ago - City of Heroes. Why they decided to continue Champions Online and completely shut down CoH completely baffles me, I guess the microtransaction model was already in place for Champions so it seemed...
Summary: I bought this for my sons and they were under the impression as I was that it was a 60 day card. They are only for 30 days of membership when you redeem them. Beware of the wording. Amazon sells them as 60 days and the company only gives you 30 days.
Summary: I feel I should qualify this review. I am a lifetime subscriber to CO. Had you asked me to review the game prior to the On Alert update, I couldn't've recommended it enough. But the On Alert update has come and gone since then, and there's no sugarcoating it: it is terrible.
Summary: If you are familiar with the RP version of Champions then you're likely to be seriously disappointed with the character generation in this video game version as none of it has be preserved, sadly.
Summary: PvE vs PvP First and foremost, I do like to take part in both PvE and PvP elements in any given game. I find that this game is a decent cross between World of Warcraft (vanilla or Burning crusade wow, not wrath or cata) and CoH/CoV.
