Cancelled

Adam Keith Freund, Amazon
19 October 2012
  • Summary: This game has been cancelled and will not be playable in 2013 if not sooner. Do not buy this product as you will be wasting your money. It was a really fun game while it was playable however.

It's not WOW.

Paul Simon Thomas, Amazon
10 May 2007
  • Summary: It's not WOW. You can fly. You can leap buildings in a single bound. You can become invisible. You can teleport. The community isn't massive (compared to more popular MMOs) but is very friendly. The character customizability is better than any other MMO by a long way. Not a wizard or ranger in site.

Good, but not Super...

Andrew "Plotting to take over the world since..., Amazon
5 July 2006
  • Summary: I initially came to this game as a MMORG newbie, and played it for the free period ; I found iit interesting but that it lacked a long term appeal. A year later, having since played and enjoyed World of Warcraft,I thought I'd give it another go...unfortunately I came to the same conclusion.

Fetch my Cape Igor - Yeth Marthter

Morbid Matt "Digital Jester/ Rising Tiger", Amazon
18 December 2005
  • Summary: Right, first of all, people should stop whining like little girls about a monthly subscription fee - it says on the box, it probably says in some reviews. Short of actually knocking on peoples doors and saying ' Hey, our game is strictly online, with a subscription' there is not a huge amount of a...

Slow boiler but persevere

"biggerron", Amazon
19 March 2005
  • Summary: As a newbie to the on-line role playing genre I found it a tad awkward to get into, but perseverance is the key. After failing to complete a number of the more difficult missions I joined a team for the first time. This showed me why this game is so addictive.

Sublime, does what it says and does it well

Vincent Vancalbergh, Amazon
7 February 2005
  • Summary: I had often heard of the game when it went live in the US. I thought about trying it, but the purchase price seemed too high and there was no way of doing a trial. I was lucky to get into the EU Beta and played 2 weeks for... more than I should (still only about 2 hours a day).

Amazing combat, little depth.

Neverwinter Knight, Amazon
17 July 2004
  • Summary: First off, I would like to say that I love superheroes. Ever since I was a kid I loved them, and the prospect of this character creation system was just an amazing chance at being a character that I cherished. I bought this game BECAUSE of the character creation system, and it did not let down.

Fun deviation from the Massive Online Game norm

Michael P., Amazon
14 July 2004
  • Summary: It seems that Massively Multiplayer games are being released with such frequency now that its impossible to find one that stands out among them...until now. City of Heroes is a fun and quite different spin from the Massively Multiplayer Online formula.

Coh = Meh

K. Moran "Sigh at you people", Amazon
20 June 2004
  • Summary: Yes, this is quite a good game...but, there are some things that contributed to me quiting. One: Every once in a while there are some rubbing banding issues that occur on certain servers.

A wonderful diversion from the "standard" MMORPG

G "wolfstar76", Amazon
8 June 2004
  • Summary: As a long-time veteran of MMORPG games (also known as "persistant world" games), I have found City of Heroes to be a breath of VERY fresh air. Instead of the "cookie cutter" forumla of dragons, swords, wizards, and clerics, CoH casts you as a superhero.
