  • Summary: Another winner from NCSoft. They've taken a brilliant game and made it better. Whilst I still prefer to be a hero, this game offers a whole new range of missions and characters.

Being Bad Can Feel Good!

  • Excerpt: Released in 2005, City of Villains allowed the MMORPG community to play as a comic book villain of their own making. With a robust character creator, improved graphics and physics, five new classes and a new invention system, City of Villains improved upon the original City of Heroes. Eventually, the two games combined. Now a subscription of one allows you play the other as well.

To the rescue... or to the pain!

  • Excerpt: "...lot!) ~ City of Heroes and City of Villains are basically 2 games that run coincidentally on the same servers. They run the same basic game mechanics, levelling mannerisms. In fact the biggest differences are the fact you are playing a hero or a villain, and only in certain places (PvP) do they ever meet. Until just recently you would have to pay a subscription for each game, however, since NCSoft took over 100% of the games late 2007, both subscriptions ...
  • Pros: You get to play a super hero or villain
  • Cons: usual elitists

Great fun

  • Conclusion: Well I've just finished a 14 day trial of both games, and I have to say I'm blown away with how much fun this game is. Having played World of Warcraft since shortly after release at all levels of gameplay, I find the one major difference between both experiences is that I invariably come away from City of Heroes/Villains feeling that I've had fun, rather than simply endured a time sink designed to line some corporate vampires pockets.

Only MMORPG I'm happy to pay a sub for

  • Conclusion: As the title says, I've tried a good many mainstream and otherwise MMORPG's that are available at present and others which have been retired. As far as the current generation goes City of Heroes/Villains is the only one I am happy to pay a subscription fee for (having also played WoW, SW:G, EQ/EQ2 etc. but ultimately deeming them poor in comparison) and at £8.99 per month on the monthly billing cycle for access to both games it's quite affordable by comparison too.

  • Conclusion: I've now played this game twice, in effect; once when City of Heroes was new, and then again when City of Villains came onto the scene.

City of Heroes

  • Conclusion: Quite simply the best MMO (massively multiplayer Online) game out there. The character creation is head and shoulders above anything else with well over a million costume combinations to choose from at the outset. A consistant, believable and engrossing world environment. If you've played and grown bored with WoW and the like (and to be fair, who wouldn't) give this a try.. it really is a gem! See you in the City.

Worth the time and money

  • Conclusion: Its a great game no doubt about it, the game story and background is very comic book hero type and the character customisation is varied and in depth with the new updates. One problem is if you're more of an action guy I'd stick to DC Universe online as its quite a bit more up to date.

  • Conclusion: I've been an avid city of heroes/villains player for a long while now, (coming up on 15 months veteran) and am still enjoying the game every bit as much as the first day i unwrapped the game and put it in my disc drive.
