Title: Marvel Heroes

Status: Released Graphics: 3D

Genre: MMORPG

Developer: Gazillion Entertainment

Publisher: Marvel

Marvel Heroes is a 3DAction RPG. Similar to Diablo in movement and play style, Marvel Heroes lets players assume control of Marvel’s most famous superheroes. Players can choose from a wide variety of superheroes, each with their own iconic skills and unique armor.

As players level up in game, they will gain access to new abilities which can be swapped out freely, allowing players to customize their superheroes role. Players can unlock new superheroes through random drops, which can then be switched to at any time during play. New costumes can also be found in game, but must be crafted with items dropped from random mobs. Depending on what items are used to craft the costume, players can create costumes with unique attributes such as increased health or defenses. Everything in the game can be gained with time in game or bought.
Players will team up with other superheroes and embark on a custom story written by one of Marvel’s most famous comic book writers, Brian Michael Bendis. The game features unique, a fully voice acted motion comic, aka cut scenes, which pay homage to classic comic books.
Unlike traditional RPGs, players can explore and fight in many areas of the game without having to party up. Certain areas are not instanced, which allows players to team up and fight iconic super-villains that serve as world bosses including Venom and Doctor Octopus. The game has many wonderful perks, taking ability’s from other heroes to make your favorite become more, give rouge colossuses armor. The Dev’s listen to the players but do not give you everything. No real overpowered characters. Downfalls, controls can be hard to get used to, same stories, no difference from character to character.
So far my favorite has been Ghost Rider. Love the banter he says and the motorcycle abilities are a blast, so give it a try and be your own hero.

PROS

• Devs listen to players.
• Everything is open for free to play you do not have to pay anything (Not a buy to win).

• Steady updates with new characters (Recent Dr. Doom).

• Control of spec path making each character different even if same hero.

• Character Banter (hilarious).

• Voice acted motion comics.

• Free game.

• Diablo style dungeon crawling.

• Based on Marvel comic universe.
CONS

• Storage space (fills quickly).
• Better in game tutorial (Not well explained).

• End game tutorial (Need to know by level 60).
