City of Heroes Re-Review (Eurogamer)

Eurogamer's John Walker writes: "I still love it. I still have more fun in that City than I ever have in World of Warcraft, or elsewhere. It's just so instant, so immediately satisfying. A new power isn't just a slightly better chopping action, but the ability to fly. Or to leap tall buildings in a single bound. Or to call up purple tentacles from another dimension to bind the enemy to the spot. How can you not love that? It's cartoon, it's comic, it's the gaming form of those brightly coloured words that burst from Batman's TV fighting. But it's also a world that, I suspect, has had its day.

It seems wrong to declare this when there's nothing in place to replace it. It occupies a unique space in the MMO multiverse. Champions will inevitably take its throne, but for now this is the only way to experience the life of the superhero, and despite its age, it's still a fine way to go about it." (City of Heroes, PC) 7/10
