If this game were still up and running, I'd give it five stars (ten if I could!), but NCSoft should not be allowed to profit from a dead game. Period.
I'm not really a fan of MMOs but I have to say I've been continually impressed with the City of franchise providing innovative and fun play, interesting character archetypes, and probably the best character builder in any game. I'm also impressed with their continued dedication to free game updates instead of paid box updates for new content.
With the addition of Inventions in April, 2007 you really begin to feel like a super hero or a devious villain, able to craft new enhancements to make your powers more robust and awesome. Veterans awards also make me feel appreciated as a customer for my continued play of the game by rewarding me a new costume piece, or item for every 3 months of play. (I'm at 18 now ^_^).
If you're looking for a fun game, low on gore violence (I consider it to be PG-13), that teaches good lessons for kids (especially in city of heroes), and lets you play out a childhood dream of being a good guy or a bad guy, this is definitely it.
The ONLY reason to buy this is for diehard fans as a collectible item.
One of the best things about City of Heroes is that it's not like other online RPGs. It's easier to get into, it's faster, and often times, it's simply more enjoyable.
The best thing about City of Heroes is that it genuinely offers the thrill of discovery--something that is fundamentally uncommon in gaming, since most games are closely modeled on established genres.Read more ›
I did try to use my 360 controller. but found a) the right analog stick inoperable, and after downloading a program to remap. I prefered keyboard and mouse, so now i picked up a trackball, as my old pc and trackball are packed away. Still i would prefer it on a pc. But traveling to COH/COV on my laptop is enjoyable. and definatly do not regret rebuying the game. I even recreated my same hero, with additions to and origin story to the 2 yr hiatus. from 2005 to 2007...
See you all in Paragon
