Comment: Blah Blah the expansion is not a ripoff. What is a ripoff about letting players be creative? Go crawl back under your rock and actually play before making ignorant statements like that. City of Villains and City of Heroes are better than Champions Online.

Comment: Personally, i truly believe that this game is over rated just because its new, and coh is underrated because, well... "woo! i'm some guy dressed up in tights to look like a super hero i really like and i'm playjurising another hero." Thats CoH's only problem :/... ANYWAYS. On to the ratings :D!
gameplay: 7/10 for pve element. Missions are very repetetive. Its either go take out this guy, or steal this, or protect that. It is the exact problem them CoH has. Anyways, pvp is ver fast paced and fun, depending on ur archtype. pvp gets 9/10 :D. Only problem is, once u play for a couple months, u'll feel exhausted, bored, and u wont have the will to log on again to level up for pointless pvp and super group wars.
Graphics: 9/10 better than wow's =).
Enhancement System: Interesting.... Long, annoying, time consuming, costs lots, yet it is required to become beastly powerful with ur archtypes duty =). So, in the end it is much worth it.
Customization: 10/10 Absolutely one of the best character customization systems i've ever seen! (besides perfect world's, thats PERFECT xD!)

Overall, great game, just gets boring and repetetive like CoH. This game makes me feel like the programmers just threw together another CoH, but not as well. (glitches, errors, etc.)

Comment: This game will bust your balls with creativitly and Inginuity.

The only problem keeping this game from hitting it big is its graphics..

The game does have some pretty impressive models but it will soon be crushed by games like 'Darkfall' and 'Age of Conan'. Its metallic structures definitely do not go well with the models, and the pixel cuts and trash the experience.

The game would probably need to be ran on a Guild Wars like platform for it to fit the button but it does pretty well on its own.

Graphics 80%
Sound 80%
Community 59%
Innovation 85%
Customer Service 20%

Overall 81% - Reccomended to Comic fans.

Comment: I give it a 7 cuz it is fun and all but after like a month it gets boring because it is just the same old thing. But most of it is good. It is really fun to make your own SG ( Super Group )

Great graphics
no one looks the same
almost no one has the same exact powers
4 different travel powers ( flying, Super Speed, Super Jump, And Teleportation )
Making your character can take for ever but it is worth it most of the time.

The same places all the time
People dont always talk that much
It can be really hard to get started

P.S. it is really fun for a while
and try to stick to one character.
( to me Stalkers are the funnist. If your are starting out try one! They are awsome )

Comment: This game captures the better side of what i seek when i play a MMORPG. Character creation options are by far the best in any game, no question. The PvP is fast paced and largely depends on skill and the power you chose to take, not equipment, making it fair for the casual gamer, while allowing a more didicated player to learn tricks to gain that competative edge. You can solo your way through this game, grouping is not necessary, so you don't have to wait for hours on end for people. Season holidays you can reply on it being fun. Graphics and gameplay are also very impressive. Travel powers give this game the final kick that makes me rate it 10. Plus, you can't beat being the Villain

My favourite game for PvP, I rate it over DaoC, WoW and EQ2 for hte PvP element

Comment: AMAZING MMO. The PvE gets boring quickly, but the community and the PvP kept me going for a while, pvp is awesomely fast paced, like MMO PvP for the FPSer, imo. I am taking a break at the moment from all non free MMO's but I'm thinking about coming back to CoX. Costume design is amazing and there are bonuses for playing a long time(angel and demon wings anybody?)

Trust me if you haven't played it and your looking for a FUN mmo, this is the game for you. If you are looking for a really challenging and time consuming MMO turn away.

Comment: Cant saty much of what hasnt been said.The customization is the best of any game i have ever played.Really no one person looks alike!!Unless on purpose.I have a lvl 50 mm and he owns everything.Get to 20 and it gets fun.Many people online at all times.Plenty of skills and ways to utilize them.100s,no millions of differnt power combinations and plenty of character space.Most who give this game anything under a 8 are retards and need to play more than a week.It took me 6 days to get to lvl 20(not playing all day long) so theres no lvl gind.Pvp owns any other game.Im in a very good Super Group(I created it) and mayhem mishes are really fun if you have a large group.

customization-53/10(its that awesome)
costume contests-10/10(xD)
Mayhem mishes-12/10

This game deserves a 94/10 one of the best games ever.PvE does need some work but only like 12seconds of programming worth.If you have $25 spare dollars pay and play.You will not regret it. PEACE!!MUH HOMIES!! Keep on grindin,

Comment: being evil is so much better you get to kill alot more people like in starwars knights of the old republic 2 the sith lords going to the darkside is so much better so many people to kill and sense you can go to jail in real life mine as well put anger all into the video game there sometime were I get so mad I need to kill so I play a video game I really releases the anger or listen to music that is not meatal and speaking of music metal is the best music for battle,war,fight any thing like that but when you playing a NFS you need rock when you custimise the cars you need rap when you race you need rock and thats what I have to say.

Comment: This game is the one thing that keeps me occupied when WOW gets boring,which it barely does. This game has everything WOW has (see my review at the WOW section)!

I give it a 9 out of 10,for being just a little too evil.

Comment: A lot like the original but I like it more because it allows heroes versus villains PVP finally. I also love the new MasterMind character since I can now summon evil ninjas to my side (cackles evilly).

Comment: Not sure how the game will be...But it looks like it has pretty sick graphics. I would probably play it if it didn t have any monthly fees. Hopefully they will scratch out the monthly fee for this game.
