OP  9/28/11 5:55:27 PM#1

In this corner, we have the reigning superhero champion, City of Heroes, fresh off a win against Champions Online. In this corner, we have the new kid on the block, DC Universe Online. The pair are going to rumble and only one can win. Check out Adam Tingle's thoughts about each game to see who is the ultimate superhero MMO!

In the latest, and hopefully last, Rocky film, Sylvester Stallone slurred his way through a speech about “it’s not about how many times you get knocked down, but how many times you get back up” and in an effort to emulate those words, here at MMORPG.com we are readily throwing City of Heroes back into the fight. A few weeks ago, Cryptic’s first MMORPG (now run by Paragon Studios) managed to stand toe-to-toe with their newest creation, Champions Online, finally settling for a respectable draw, but this week we are baying for blood, cuts, and knock outs.

Rage that DCUO is nowhere close to CoX in 3, 2, 1....


 


Anyway, I played CoX for a short time and didn't really get into it. It seems to be a fine game and I may give it another go with the advent of F2P.

well.. DCUO was never going to compare favourably to what imo, is undoubtedly the best of the bunch.. COH/COV.. now that its F2P.. im kind of tempted to reactivate my old account..  and put in a bit of 'cape' time... as if i didnt have enough games to tempt me with already..  .. its a hard life being a gamer these days.. too many games.. not enough hours in the day to play them...

I think the article should probably be updated to include the fact that CoH has gone free to play as of Tuesday. Despite the big "City of Heroes FREEDOM" brand right on a screenshot used for the article it still insists that the game is pay to play.

Comparing 2 games and declaring a "winner" between one that's been out for 7 years, with 7 years of content, to a game that's not even a year old... really? Compare the games, fine, but declaring a winner in this case is ignorant. Let's see where DCUO is in 7 years and then compare it to (this) 7 year old version of CoH - then declare a winner.


I make spreadsheets at work - I don't want to make them for the games I play.

So, it's a bit like comparing World of Warcraft with Rift... people still do that!!


I've played CoX a few times, it's fun to play but never holds me for long. It's a good filler between games and now it's f2p I will give it another go.

Even after reading the first reviews when DCUO came out I knew CoH would win. That speaks volumes about SOE and their talent to screw over even big american IPs. Still can't understand why DC just doesn't take the license back.

CoH on the other hand is also the only good game Cryptic has ever made.

I'm surprised that DCUO "won" as many things as it did here. Based on my experiences in DCUO, those categories should have easily gone over to CoH.

For such an awesome IP, DCUO is an awful game.

Both games win and the suckers dumping their money and time to it lose. Except me because I'm special and unique and clever.

Players come for the game, but they stay for the people- Most Devs have forgotten this.

When I restarted I was actually amazed at how great CoH still looked.

The character model animations etc put so many newer games to shame tbh.

dcuo can't hold a candle to CoH.  It's not even a contest-CoH is by far the better game, imho.

Wouldn't make a Champions Online VS DCUO make more sense? CoH is years old. Of course it has more content. But also... I can't go back there, free or not. I need some fresh, modern graphics. *shrug*

A forum is a place where people can discuss about different opinions. So what I don't get is, how people react offended when they come to a forum and then find... well different opinions. If a different opinion offends you, what are you even doing here?

yaaa its pretty bad when a way older game can beat 2 newer games...well lets keep thanking the damn publishers for PUSHing the developers to get things out the door to Profit...enywho...DCUO sucked balls the customization/class system was waaaay to unflexable and lame.

I have to admit, I don't see the issue with the CoX graphics.  

Article was way too close for reality.

CoX crushes DCO.

the UI in both games sux really bad... I would preffer anything over DCUO just because i dont play mmos with such mouse brawling combat (poor mouse)....also coh combat is a little bit slower than normal.... 


i preffer CoX..,,,, hell, even champions online entertains me more than dcuo just because theres no action brawling combat ( i play brawlers on my console system) no need mmos like that as well
