Fantastic way to get a month of game time and some goodies!

Summary: I have 2 City of Heroes accounts. My main account is 8 years old and my 2nd I picked up last summer when they offered a month of play for new ones for 99 cents. All of these boxed versions can add game time to your account. I picked this up for $5 and got a new batch of Hero-clicks(**even Ghost Widow!**), the art book, poster and 1 month game time for my 2nd account. FYI, you can only use one of each edition on each account.
Summary: I've been playing CoH for 6 years, and CoV since it came out. From the early days of street sweeping to the difficult and extremely fun incarnate missions and arc missions of today, I have always returned to CoH/CoV. Right now, I'm splitting my time between a Villian SG and a Heroes SG trying to decide which to stick with. Its hard to decide, all my characters (50) are a blast to play.
Summary: Been playing this game for years, and it is still top of my list for MMOs. Honestly though, I only wound up buying this collector's edition for the addition of using the Arachnos capes for some of my characters that are now hopping to Villain's from Hero side thanks to the new Going Rogue expansion. If I am going to play as the bad guys, I might as well have those characters look the part. Was suprised to see so much in the box when I got it.
Still fun after all these years, New graphics update looks GREAT!

Summary: If there's anything you need to know about this game it's how great it's customizability is. You can make your character look like anything you can imagine (Champions Online tried to copy this to an extent but falls way short of what's possible in this game). You're also given up to 5 different costumes you can make for each character, which you can switch back and forth from at will. The gameplay is very fluid & fun.
Summary: This game is AWESOME!!! The character customization is like no other. No two characters are ever the same unless you choose to make them that way. I have tried other games,but this is the game I have stuck with for 3 years.
Summary: Not only is this product a steal for all the bonus stuff you get BUT this game is a blast. If you don't own it, buy it. And if you do own it, then buy it anyway and add it to your account for the extra bonuses you will get in-game for it. It also comes with a free month, trials of other games, a deck of cards of the CoH card game, an art book, and a whole set of hero clix figures. P.S.
City of Heros vs Villains is a great game but it is not Warcraft

Summary: If your looking for a game with style and makes you think. City of Heros is right for you. The game is rich with story lines and plots. Almost every group has a back ground story. The graphics are so alsome my video card cannot handle them I have to play on the lowest graphics setting but I still have a cool time playing. A 3d vid card could be used on this game to alsome effect but the regualar Nvidia ones work also on minimum setting.
Summary: City of Villains is way more graphic intensive than City of Heroes, trust me, I know. I've suffered with lag in CoV until I got a new computer, and lag is gone. It is a great game, but i prefer CoH more because it is more populated, and you need to team more in CoH to level. CoV is focused more on damage (i.e. the inherent powers boost up the damage of every arch-type in CoV). in CoH, the inherent powers are usually about teams, well some of them anyhow.
