Marvel Heroes Review - IGN

As a premise, Marvel Heroes is overflowing with potential. Developed by Gazillion (headed by Diablo co-creator David Brevik) it attempts to combine the frenetic action combat of Diablo with the persistent world and heavy instancing of an MMO, all dressed up in Marvel’s tights. Running around fighting famous villains like Green Goblin or Magneto while hunting for gear upgrades and loot in a free-to-play framework should be fun... but that expectation makes it all the more disappointing that Marvel Heroes regularly feels like a chore thanks to stilted progression systems, repetitive combat, and an incredibly limited endgame.

The story is too old to be commented.

Let me know how disappointed you are for PAYING for this title. For a free to play game and a marvel fan, it's excellent, and is better than those ultimate alliance titles. AND IT'S FREE.

Those games were ok I think.

Feldman90001133d ago

difference is you paid for those. you don't pay for this.

Even for a f2p game it felt extremly restricted. I wanted to like this because I love superheroes and action rpgs but this was just a major letdown

By your logic, no matter how flawed a game is, as long as it's free, it should get a free pass from reviewers.

At the end of the day, yes it is free, but there are much better free to play games out there.

Obviously, if you are a Marvel fan, go for it, ignore this review and enjoy the game, but you can't expect every reviewer to be Marvel fans, nor should you expect them to give a higher score for it. For example, I enjoy Dynasty Warrior games, but I know they are flawed, and I fully expect them to receive very low scores, but that doesn't make them less enjoyable to me, nor does that make them better games.

My main problem is the price of the characters. Wish they would lower it down to like 5 bucks for wolverine.

price of the characters and costumes needs to come down and then I think it's a very viable game for marvel fans. I don't want to pay $200 just to play as symbiote spider-man (costume is exclusive to the $200 pack)
