An average ARPG made worse by unnecessary MMO elements and an egregious free-to-play model 1

From Star Wars: The Old Republic, to Rift and The Secret World, subscription-based MMOs transitioning to a free-to-play model has become a common occurrence over the past few years. With so many options and little variation between them it’s no wonder fewer and fewer people are willing to fork over a monthly fee. Marvel Heroes, on the other hand, has adopted a free-to-play model from the initial launch, but its MMO elements are more questionable than most. With David Brevik at the helm it’s more...

How much can change in a year... 0

Back at launch, the game got some pretty decent to mediocre reviews with many calling the game out on its performance, its free-to-play model and being unable to make your own hero. As a huge supporter of the game, believe me when I say the game deserved those reviews then. Prices were steep, getting heroes was cumbersome or another money sink and there was little to no end-game progression. Yet the remarkable turnaround is one of the huge success stories about the game as anyone who's played s...

The Question Is: Who Do You Love? 0

Man, I sure love Marvel Heroes. I’ve picked up both of the Advance Packs, which are moderately high buy-in (though roughly a unit and a car in, say, Warhammer) packages that pre-purchase all the upcoming heroes for the game’s next year of development. The game’s had a bit more than a year of development. I’ve also invested occasionally in costumes, boosts, “team-up” heroes (essentially uncontrolled sidekick characters/purchased buffs, depending on how you equi...

What if Deadpool was Diablo? 0

Marvel Heroes is a free to play action-RPG with slight MMO hooks, so it hits 3 of the more recent trends in video games. Marvel Heroes was developed by Gazillion Entertainment and David Brevik, the man behind two of the most influential action-RPGs, Diablo and Diablo 2, is behind the wheel of this wild comic themed adventure.Marvel Heroes starts you off with a decision that will shape the way you play the game forever, which of the five starter characters do you want to play as. You get to choos...

MIndless fun 0

I just finished the story mode, this is the most face rolling game I've ever played. I really want to like this game, and I sort of do, but everything about the actual gameplay is just a substandard Diablo with a lot of free to play hooks.The characters are very well done and look great, but when you get a bunch of them together in a boss fight, it's just chaos with all the powers flying around, apparently things get harder in the 10 man raiding content, that is the sort of stuff I'm normally in...
