Excerpt: Everyone likes to be a superhero from time to time, and several developers have used the theme for their games already. Think Freedom Force or the many known ones that were put in the form of a game. NCSoft comes with City of Heroes, a MMORPG where every gamer can create his or her superhero and fight evil. I got a trial that allowed me to play for only 2 weeks sadly, and to be honest: that’s way too short for a MMORPG that’s as fun as it looks.
