hate to admit it but i think DC had the right idea about creating your own hero/villain and implanting them within the universe, i dont like this 'collect-a-hero' idea

I see the forums are still bad... I agree with Kid Apollo, if I can't make my heroes then why play.

I can only wonder if this is going to be an open world with full interaction with other players, like a real MMO, or if you have to sit in a lobby until a team forms. If it's the latter, then how is this any different from the online play of Ultimate Alliance? For that matter, even the evironment looks a LOT like Ultimate Alliance.

And I really really just cringe at the thought of an entire team of ... *snikt* Bub... *snikt* Bub. Bub, *snikt*

It's cool that they're trying something different, but I'm a little skeptical of the lack of character creation

They should just call it City of Wolverines

This. If I can't make my own toons or "import" some of my favorite DC characters over , why play?
#12 Posted by Bestostero (5618 posts) - - Show Bio

i actually like this way better than create your own character, i rather play as my favorite characters than create a random character. i just wonder if this game will be any good, ill try since its free, but usually that just means "pay to win".

#13 Posted by htb106 (1641 posts) - - Show Bio

Sounds good. Not keen on the graphics though.

I think I'll stick to DCUO for now.

#14 Posted by Trixie (122 posts) - - Show Bio

The graphics look worse than some games made 10 years ago, like seriously.

#15 Posted by skaarason (683 posts) - - Show Bio

so i guess it's only for pc then

even though i hate mmo's and the graphics suck , i'd prob get it if it was on consoles

#16 Posted by oldstevens (16 posts) - - Show Bio

I'll probably give it a try however I think DCU has the right idea of allowing you to create a character and have him/her work within that universe.

it's really hard for MMO's to have high end graphics....so if that's what you're after then mmo's aren't for you

This game looks like crap. The lighting sucks. The graphics suck. Animation is terrible. It looks like a 90's playstation game, when they were just learning how to make 3D games. Oh my you get to play as Squirrel Girl... so lame. The Punisher shooting a rocket launcher made out of sparklers...so sad. They should have made a Rock, Paper, Scissors game, it would be more fun. Free-to-play because nobody would subscribe to that. That game makes me sad. :o(

you aren't going to get next gen quality graphics out of an mmo at this time...to much memory and bandwidth is used on the mmo aspect of the game...just look at WoW...even on a high end pc with the settings turned up as high as possible it's still nothing compared to a ps3 or xbox360 game....so again I say if you're looking for a game with high end graphics then an mmo is not the game for you

Okay, before people comment, READ THIS POST AND FACTS!!!!!

  • The Game is FREE TO PLAY. As in COMPLETELY free to play. You only pay money if you want to speed things up.
  • The Roster is going to be VERY large. The creators plan to continually add characters to the game even after release. So don't freak out when you see the character list ans go "WHERE'S ____________"
  • October 1st is the CLOSED Beta. Sign up at Marvelheroes.com
  • Characters are so far: Black Panther, Black Widow, Thor, Captain America, Hulk, Hawkeye, Spider-Man, Wolverine, Cable, Cyclops, Rocket Raccoon, Emma Frost, Scarlet Witch, Cyclops, Squirrel Girl, Punisher, Daredevil, Deadpool, Human Torch, Thing, Iron Man, Storm and Ms. Marvel
  • Bosses so are Magneto and Viper
  • Ka-Zar and Nova are announced but not shown in game yet. Psylocke, Beast, Dagger, Multiple Man are shown in game, but not announced playable yet.

Okay now that I got all that out of the way, I hope this avoids any pointless posts. Because facts constantly are asked about in this game.

I really wish they'd stop calling this an MMO, when it clearly is more akin to a dungeon crawler like MUA or Diablo. Just because your game is online, doesn't make it an MMO. Looks fun though.

#25 Posted by CounterShock (29 posts) - - Show Bio

Am I the only one who thinks creating their own hero is kinda dumb? I play these kinda games so I can BE Spider-Man, Daredevil, Punisher, etc., why would I want to play as a nobody that just takes quests from Robin or something lame like that?

#26 Posted by thecomicscove (164 posts) - - Show Bio

@CounterShock: Agreed. Creating your own "unique" hero has been done to death in all too many games, most recently DCUO. Give me and MUA-style online game, with lots of leveling, gear, skins, power sets, and interaction and I'll be happy.

I've got a lot of hopes for this game. Definitely the right IP for it.

#27 Posted by Danial79 (2335 posts) - - Show Bio

My only fear for this game is that you'll get hundreds of the same character running around together. That'll just ruin it for me. I don't think they've announced an Xbox version yet anyway, so I probably won't even get to play it :(

Both games have good graphics, better than this. True, why is it a MMO, what if everyone who plays wants to be Daredevil, Who plays the other characters?

I agree as well. I love DCUO and hoped marvel would lean that way for an MMO. But this game does look promising imo.

From what I assume, it means "Some things like leveling up might take a while, so you can spend actual money to speed that up".

I agree with you to an extent. I mean I hate to sound like another DCUO fanboy (though I do play the game) but it has great graphics for an MMO on both the PC and PS3 versions. I mean we have computers that come with stock graphics cards that put those of a PS2 or original XBox to shame so I don't think it's too much to ask for higher standards in graphics even for an MMO.

And to those ascribing to the notion that it's somehow "better" to only be able to play as your favorite hero or villian as oppose to one you thought of yourself, you really must have no imagination. As much as I like all of the Marvel characters set to appear in this game I'd much prefer to play as a character "inspired by" them fighting along side them with other original characters in that same vien than a dozen Wolverines, or Caps or Iron Man's etc. All the variant costumes in the Marvel Universe will never match the uniqueness you feel when playing as character whom you've named and dressed to your own specifications.

Wait, so when DCU came out everyone complained that you had to make your own character, and couldn't play as actual DC characters, and now we're preferring that to actually playing as Marvel characters? Huh?

It's for free isn't it?

Don't look a gift horse in the mouth.

In my opinion it's not all about graphics...

#43 Posted by Agent Paradox 9 (147 posts) - - Show Bio

Lots of people complaining about this game!

I think it looks awesome. I like being able to play as a ton of different Marvel heroes and it's free? Hell yeah.

I generally dislike create-a-character with DCUO because I don't like playing along with Superman or Wonder Woman as much as I'd rather play as them. It doesn't bother me with City of Heroes (RIP) or Champions Online, but that's because of the IP.

And the people saying it looks like Playstation One graphics.. have you even played the Playstation One?

#44 Posted by Mokey (188 posts) - - Show Bio

That gameplay has a lot of work that needs be done. Stiff and lifeless.

I love the responses that reflect that graphics should not matter because it is a free game. Sorry but I enjoy decent graphics in my games. I chose not to play games that suck even if they are cheap/free, as I value my time. I could buy cheap toilet paper, but I enjoy wiping my butt with a fluffy cloud. :oD Sometime its just worth spending the money.

#47 Posted by KNlGHTWlNG (25 posts) - - Show Bio

My problem is that it's not for any console. The graphics I can deal with. And while I did enjoy MUA 1&2, I'm not a big fan of that type of game play. Not my cup of tea but I see the appeal. I wish they would make another game like Rise of the Imperfects. Although I feel like the only person in the world who liked/played that game.

I can't wait for a MUA3, but this just looks like a joke.

Bad because its free the best things in life are never free. MArvel Ultimate Alliance 3 would have been a much better way for Marvel to use their resources.
