Earth's first and best line of defense is its heroes. For generations, brave men and women have answered the call to protect the world from the villains who threaten its safety and security, and that threat is real. Today, organizations such as VIPER, ARGENT and PSI use both superpowers and super technology in their dastardly plots to control the world. In addition, creatures from outer space and other dimensions seek to enslave humanity and super scientist Teleios is creating an army of clones and super powered constructs to do his bidding. But the greatest threat of all is Doctor Destroyer. A superhuman genius driven to conquer, Destroyer will not stop until all of humanity bends knee to his greatness. In 1992, Destroyer obliterated the city of Detroit and killed thousands. With years to prepare, his next attack is sure to put the entire planet in peril. But humanity does not stand alone.

Led by The Champions, protectors of Millennium City, the world's heroes have launched a crusade for peace, security and justice. But they need allies. Defender is calling for a new generation of superheroes to fight in a war against evil that spans the globe - and beyond. Will you be one of those heroes? Save the world and be a champion.

4.0 out of 5 stars Almost a month, still digging it September 2, 2009
Platform for Display:PC
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
*Updated 11/29/2010*

I just wanted to add a quick note that this game will be free to play soon if they haven't already made the switch. It won't be 100% free as none of these "free to play" MMORPGs truly are, but you will be able to access the bulk of the game for no monthly fee soon. I would highly recommend checking this out for the low low price of free and perhaps then opt in to some of the priced content.

Overall, I am still pleased with the game and maintain my rating of it. As an avid WoW player I don't feel that Champions Online is going to be a game for me which will replace WoW by any means but I am pleasantly surprised by how fun it is to play. It has so far served me quite well as a respectably good distraction.

You start off by making your character. The promises Cryptic made in regards to the depth of customization were delivered in spades. In terms of looks you are limited to various costume pieces, of which there are many, but the majority of them can be altered in several ways including material, color, and patterns. I was a little disappointed to find that certain costume pieces can't be used with others (chest armor + cape = no?) but with the shear level of options it was a fading disappointment as I moved on to other cool ideas. I'm immensely satisfied with the creation features. Other costume items can be unlocked through gameplay via random drops, PvP, and such. These unlocked costume items are currently only available to the character which unlocks them but you can change your costume around after creation.

For your powers you can choose from pretty generic comic book archetypes like a fire user, or super strength, or telekinesis etc.

3.0 out of 5 stars Major change on launch day September 3, 2009
Platform for Display:PC
Fun: 2.0 out of 5 stars   
Champions Online was completely changed on the day of launch. Some like the change some don't, but either way it is a completely different experience than it was during the head start period.

According to an interview of the creators, "We decided to swing hard in the other direction so it's like now there isn't enough content for levels, so we really made a big adjustment but we could tell we were close. From there we know we can go back in the other direction and ease off of those changes." Yet according to developer comments they now have the game right where they want it to be. This makes writing a review fairly hard.

In my view, the game before the change was fantastic. The game after the change is average. Theoretically they will move the pointer back to the fantastic side, but who knows?

My advice is to hold off a few months before purchasing and see what the game turns into. Since there is so much flux right now you might not be buying what you think you were buying.

Overall, the character creation is very nice although you are not told that certain combinations are impossible. For example you can't both have a chest piece and have a cap. They are mutually exclusive. There is no notice given so if you don't already know these types of things exist you end up in trouble. The fact that when you change one type of item, it erases your choices of other items without telling you is inexcusable. Now, if you already have a planned look and go from the front to the end, you can pretty much get that look with only a few compromises, but testing out variations often leads to frustration as components disappear and reappear in what, to you, appear to be randomly.

4.0 out of 5 stars Solid game, room for improvement September 8, 2009
By J. Nash
Platform for Display:PC
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I've been playing since the last day of beta and all the way through the 'head start' so hopefully folks will have an idea of how much experience I have in the game.


- The game is very fast-paced, and full of action. If you're tired of standing in one place waiting for every power you have to come off a cooldown so you can hit it again... then this game may be for you.

- The character creator is terrifically versatile. I can't possibly count how many various combinations of costuming are available but I assure you there is likely something for everyone. You will also unlock additional costume pieces as you go through the game, find 'power replacement' items, etc. As you advance in levels you will gain additional costume slots that you can also customize, allowing you to switch between these costumes on the fly in the field. Another interesting note - various part locations will allow you to set one piece for the right and another for the left (example - huge shoulder pad on the left and a smaller pad on the right) to create even more diversity.

- Customizable frameworks - While admittedly not every power combination is great the fact that you can pretty much pick and choose the powers you want as you level is something that really makes me feel in control of my character's progression. I'm not 'locked' into a preset track "Oh, I'm level xx, I get the ability that this class always gets at level xx".

- I love the comic book feel of the game. The comic book line style graphic option will possibly turn some people off (in which case they can turn IT off) but for me it makes me feel like I'm playing in a 3d comic book. Love it.

- Only one main server. This is too awesome.
