City of Villains

Strategy Informer
21 March 2007
  • Excerpt: After City of Heroes received the high praise it did from gamers everywhere, Ncsoft has gone another step further and created City of Villains.  If you are tired of the self-righteous, “good”, and yet bothersome citizens of Paragon City, get ready!  In City of Villains, you can strap on your evil attire and cause destruction throughout the city, destroying any measly citizen that dares cross your path. Setting: the Rogue Isles.

  • Excerpt: You awaken in your cell to the sounds of wailing sirens. Then you realize that the jail has been overrun by your fellow prisoners and you are fleeing for your life from the guards, being helped away by other prisoners and soldiers of a guy named Arachnos. You crawl through the sewers and are whisked away to freedom…to a place called “The Rogue Isles.” This is the world of City of Villains.

Expert Review

GameSpot
16 November 2005
  • Summary: You've tired of the pitiful battle cries of those self-righteous, meddling heroes of Paragon City. You'd like nothing better than to strap on your darkest cowl, tattoo your face with arcane symbols, and begin wreaking havoc on any mewling citizen that dares step in your path. Welcome, fellow fiend, to City of Villains, the sequel of sorts to NCSoft's City of Heroes, which was released in 2004.
  • Pros: It's about time someone let us play the bad guy, Missions can be fun to solo, but the game shines when you're a member of a team, Customizing your headquarters keeps your supergroup motivated, Character creation tool is just as fun to tinker with as before, PvP can be fun
  • Cons: Missions are very straightforward, No real sense of malice to anything you do, PvP can be too straightforward, When things bunch up, the system bogs down

City of Heroes/Villains: Midnight Hour PC Review

DarkZero
3 June 2008
  • Excerpt: Four years on from its release, and even in the shadow of World of Warcraft, City of Heroes has found its fan base. It looks like finally it’s grasping them by the wrist, and like an overprotective mother is screaming in their innocent little face “DON’T YOU DARE GET OUT OF MY SIGHT!” To cut a long and boring story short, compared to other update development teams that work on MMO’s monthly additions, City of Heroes had a relatively small group.

City of Villains PC DVD Review

  • Conclusion: When it comes down to enjoyment level, if you enjoyed City of Heroes then I don’t see any reason for you to dislike the dark side of the force. While the missions are repetitive and linear, all you need to do to spice them up is play with a few friends, whether you met them in or out of the game. The graphics and sound aren’t anything to praise the Lord for, but they do their job.

Test : City of Villains

GameHope
12 October 2014
  • Summary: Voilà, après tant d’attente et d’espoir, City of Villains est enfin sorti. Après une bêta un poil décevante, on s’attend à ce que le jeu nous offre quelques bonnes surprises. Alors vous voulez vraiment être un gros méchant poilu et pas beau ? Tiens d’ailleurs, pourquoi les méchants sont toujours pas beaux ? Mon méchant a la classe !
  • Pros: Incarner un méchant, Gameplay et interface simples, Combats jouissifs, Très fun
  • Cons: Les décors lassants, Mais où sont les super-héros ?

  • Summary: Ich empfehle es jedem, der auf Helden steht und ohne Inventar zurecht kommt. Besonders der Basisbau macht Spaß und das Belagern gleich doppelt soviel. Doch ich selber bleibe bei meinen alten Fantasyspielen der Mittelalterart. Das Spiel City of Villains wurde bewertet von unserem Redakteur blue.sheep.

  • Conclusion: Su City of Villains è stato fatto un ottimo lavoro, non c’è alcun dubbio. Il titolo soffre di alcune pecche, ma sappiamo quanto sia difficile gestire un gioco di questo genere. Non abbiamo ancora tutti i dati necessari per fare un’analisi approfondita dell’ultimo argomento trattato, ma confidiamo nella NcSoft e nella sua inventiva, sperando che possa, col tempo, creare un PvP soddisfacente ed equilibrato. Il materiale su cui lavorare c’è, eccome !
  • Pros: Personalizzazione del proprio cattivo totale;, Grafica fluida e fisica dei corpi gestita benissimo;, Possiamo essere cattivi;
  • Cons: Richiede un abbonamento mensile;, Scenari a volte ripetitivi;, Assalti ai covi programmati;
