Up ...UP...and AWAY!!!

hawkethor..., Ciao
21 September 2009
  • Excerpt: This is easily the best Super - Heroes based game i have ever played, and one of the best MMORPG's ever made. This company is amazing in how well they listen to what the players want, and incorporating it into the game-verse in a short period of time.
  • Pros: great character builder, great new emoticons .
  • Cons: missions can become a bit minorly repetitive

A City of Zeroes

Lehen, Ciao
16 June 2009
  • Excerpt: When City of Heroes hit the downtown streets of the underground roleplaying scene in 2005 it made many masked heads turn. It was an interesting concept to release a dedicated MMORPG (Massively multiplayer online role-playing game) based around super heroes set in a comic book world.
  • Pros: excellent character creation possibilities and the chance to dress up in spandex
  • Cons: not enough to keep your average RPG fan coming back for more

The gam that trumps WOW

zantatu, Ciao
6 April 2009
  • Excerpt: This game most definatly trumps WOW in my mind. Its classes are more diverse, the world isnt as big but is more creative, fun pvp and pve. The game is about you, a super hero, who fights evil. There are different classes like tanker, which can take hits, and others.
  • Pros: Online play, Classes, Your a superhero !
  • Cons: Have to pay monthly

Security, and monthly fees

C. Byrum "Cmaster74", Amazon
29 June 2004
  • Summary: When you buy this program, you cannot sell it or let someone else play it. This prevents piracy, but also will prevent me from ever buying a title from these clowns again. I do not duplicate games, but I do not want to keep a game that is more borring than watching Sesame Street.

Connectivity Issues Abound

Scott Alan Buss "FireBreather", Amazon
24 June 2004
  • Summary: The graphics are beautiful and the gameplay is a blast...when you can maintain a connection. Unfortunately, disconnects are so frequent (I've had eight or more in a ten minute span multiple times) that all of the wonderful features of the game are rendered nothing but a tease.

Big Rip-off! Beware!

Paula Hayden "armyworm2", Amazon
22 June 2004
  • Summary: This game is one big RPG Rip-off, you buy the game for $49.99 (plus S&H) and when you get the game on your computer it says that you need a Credit Card or Game Time Subscription Card (which cost $29.99) just to start the game.

Worthless support and poor game - DO NOT BUY

Michael R. Fine "mikefine", Amazon
9 June 2004
  • Summary: I purchased this game with high expectations. However, after one "free" month of service and a total of an hour of gameplay, this is one nightmare that I will not continue to use. I have nothing but technical issues since I bought the game.

It seemed like it would be fun...

Amazon Customer "jonyossarian", Amazon
4 June 2004
  • Summary: ...so, I bought this game yesterday. I was pretty souped for it, as a friend of mine had purchased it and he seemed excited about it. Installation and registration went smoothly. I entered the character creation screen, and I noticed a problem. The character model looked very, very strange.

still can't play!

"bassettrose", Amazon
21 May 2004
  • Summary: We've had this game for about two weeks and we are still not able to play. About 15 different error messages pop up on the screen! I've done everything possible to fix the problem and now new errors are popping up! My husband seems to think that we need a new graphics card.
