Review: Marvel Heroes (MMO-RPG)

This is one of the best Massively Multiplayer On-line Role-Playing Games (MMO-RPG) I ever played. Unlike its DC counterpart (DC Universe Online) where the users can create their own unique characters while the heroes such as Superman and Wonder Woman are non-playable characters (NPC), in Marvel Heroes you can select, unlock, or buy your favourite Marvel superheroes.

Marvel Heroes Playable Characters

So far, you can only select one out of five heroes (Scarlet Witch, Daredevil, The Thing, Hawkeye, and Storm) as your default character while others, as mentioned, must be unlocked (through random drops) or purchase. Those playable characters, other than the default characters, are popular heroes such as Spider-Man, The Hulk, Deadpool, and Thor as well as the overrated heroes such as Captain America, Wolverine, and Iron Man. Other playable characters are Human Torch, the Punisher, Miss Marvel, Mr. and Mrs. Phoenix (Cyclops and Jean Grey), Black Widow, Cable, Colossus, the Black Panther, and the Rocket Racoon as well as Emma Frost, Squirrel Girl and Luke Cage. All three major factions (The Avengers, Fantastic Four, and the X-Men) in Marvel Comics along with the government puppets S.H.I.E.L.D. are represented among the playable and non-playable characters.

I got five characters (Scarlet Witch, Cyclops, Jean Grey, Storm, Hawkeye, Daredevil) so far but I focus on one of my favourite characters, the X-Man codename Cyclops (still waiting for Deadpool and the Hulk). Out of all characters I got, Cyclops was the easiest and the fastest to gain experience due to his team leadership perk. I even made it to level 30 in no time during the main questline.

Mr. and Mrs. Phoenix (Cyclops and Jean Grey)

Anyway, I'm not going to do any fancy review or even a spoiler here. The game may not be as good as the other MMO-RPG games out there such as The World of Warcraft (WoW), Diablo III or even the upcoming The Elder Scrolls On-line but hey Marvel Heroes is a FREE game and personally, its an awesome game. The only time you have to spend is if you can’t wait for random drops or quest rewards and you “really” wanted a specific costume for your favourite character OR wanted to get/use your favourite Marvel hero right away. If you’re into RPG games then you won’t have a problem in learning how to play the game . . . Heck you probably know how to play this game more than I am.

Here's the link to download the game and remember its FREE: MARVEL HEROES

P.S. If you are no fan of Wolverine or if you're like me, sick of reading or hearing about the overrated character popping out in almost every single Marvel comic series or movies out there . . . then I got good news for you . . . There’s not much Wolvertards playing this game . . . well not in my server anyway ... although, once you finished the main quest, the PvP portal will be available for all players and who knows you might be lucky and get to fight a Wolvetard . . . watch out for those nasty and stinging claws though . . .
