CoH - Issue 8 Review @ IGN

by Inauro, 2006-11-17 22:25:20

IGN takes a closer look at Issue 8 of Cryptic Studio's dynamic duo, City of Heroes and City of Villains.

Two years on, and City of Heroes/Villains is still the most characterful MMORPG going. Sure, it doesn't have the ultra-dungeons of World of Warcraft, the minutely-balanced combat of Guild Wars or the endlessly evolving politicking of Eve. It doesn't, in fact, have a whole lot beyond beating people up. But there is one other thing, fundamental to its charm - it makes you feel important. After all, what other game has passing citizens comment, "I heard The Entomologist [or insert your own hero name here] saved us all"? That they're saying this to a musclebound man in a cape and mask, with antennae sticking out of his forehead and a giant yellow 'E' on his chest, yet fail to twig that hey, maybe he's this famous Entomologist guy, doesn't really matter.
