    If you're a hardcore Marvel Comics fan you could find it entertaining, but even in it's latest incarnation Marvel Heroes is too lacking in terms of depth and mechanics.

    Great characters, awesome events, and lots to do. My social life my suffer a bit from it, but it feels worth it at the moment!

    TL; DR If you played the game early on and wrote it off (as I did), then take a chance on the bandwidth to try out the revitalized MHTL; DR If you played the game early on and wrote it off (as I did), then take a chance on the bandwidth to try out the revitalized MH experience.

    Review:
    I was invited to the open beta for this game, played for a couple weeks, and left. Was very disappointed in the initial experience. Especially my personally favorite hero, Hulk.

    Then I came back about 3 months ago, and what a completely different experience. Between the new game modes (midtown Manhattan, X Defense), additional difficulty levels, variety of gameplay among the heroes, the 52 Reviews of existing heroes, it is a completely different experience. Not to mention the events that Gaz has! Between buffed loot drops, buy-one-get-one on costumes/heroes, etc, almost every week has something going on.

    I can't emphasize how varied the heroes gameplay is. As soon as I get one to cap, I look forward to leveling another one.

    Another huge difference they have now from launch is how easy it is to get heroes. Costumes and heroes were very overpriced (in my opinion) at launch. Now, they are much cheaper, and you can grind an in game currency to purchase them as well.

    The only reason this is a 9 and not a 10: needs a bit more client optimization, and there's definitely some lag that occurs whenever too many heroes are on screen.

    630 hours played. I love this game. It has come a very long way since release, that said I still don't think it deserves a 9 or 10. All the630 hours played. I love this game. It has come a very long way since release, that said I still don't think it deserves a 9 or 10. All the people complaining about "fake" reviews are just seeing overly excited players trying to get people to see how much this game has changed. The devs are definitely the best and most responsive of any game I've ever played. If you like ARPGs this game is definitely worth trying even more so if you are also a marvel fan. Full Review »
