I should point out for those who have never played that City of Heroes is a fun and entertaining way to spend countless hours. However, like with most online MMORPGs there is always the issue of becoming to dependant on the game. Unlike other games (WoW) there are endless methods of personalizing your character (in this case called toons). The game is kid friendly and most the people I have met on the game seem to be genuinely polite.
If you are looking for a summary of the good and bad points please look below.
1. The card allows people to purchase additional time as gifts and then hand the recipient something a little fancier than a printed out piece of paper.
2. The time cards are more secure than storing a credit card on file for months or years on end.
3. The time cards work just as well as a credit card and the time is credited instantaneously.
4. The game is entertaining and fun.
1. The cards do take two or three days to arrive, whereas a credit card on the City of Heroes website allows for time to added instantly. (Very bad if you are already out of time)
2. The cards are basically the size of a credit card but the arrive in a package the size of DVD container. Very eco-unfriendly!
3. There isn't any real savings (unless there is a sale) for purchasing the cards.
4. You are instructed to keep the card(s) in case you have future technical issues. This doesn't seem feasible if you receive five or six at a time (say for a birthday or Christmas present).
Before buying this version of NCSoft's timecard, though, you may want to check individual game timecards by the company. I bought one of these generic timecards and 3 Lineage 2 timecards, and they worked out to costing almost the same after subtracting shipping and handling. It's a little known fact that any NCSoft timecard works with any NCSoft game. Do your research! At this time, I have not checked to see if there are still any L2 timecards available for around $10-$15 a pop (that's for 60 days). But if there are, get those instead, since they WILL work with Aion.

Returning after a long absence, I still really enjoy this game. In the absence of a lifetime membership, the game cards are a good alternative.Published on August 23, 2011 by David J. Drummond
In regards to this game time card, the price is very good because it's like $10 a month. However I would have rather paid a higher amount of money for this card in exchange for the... Read morePublished on September 22, 2010 by Jinxin Z.
