This isn't anywhere near as good as D3. It's embarrassing to even have it compared to D3. It's not as polished, it's not as fun it's not...anything as good or better than D3.

Game Overview


Marvel Heroes is a FREE-TO-PLAY action-packed massively multiplayer online game created by David Brevik, the visionary behind Diablo and Diablo 2. Set in the iconic Marvel Universe, Marvel Heroes combines the core game-play style of Action RPGs and MMOs with the expansive library of heroes from the Marvel Universe. In the game, players can collect and play as their favorite Marvel Superheroes (including Iron Man, Thor, Wolverine, Hulk, Spider Man, Captain America and many others). Team up with friends and try to stop Doctor Doom from devastating the world with the power of the Cosmic Cube in a story written by Marvel comic super-scribe Brian Michael Bendis

If this title lasts more than 12 months, I'd be very surprised. It's about as deep as a hotel ash tray and just about as fun to play. Marvel Ultimate Alliance had far more interactive environments and interesting game play. This game is just Diablo 2 with all the fun removed and a Marvel skin thrown on for IP recognition. As much of a disappointment to me as the original release of SWTOR.

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

What a dumb article. Who ever said this is supposed to be an MMORPG?


 


Its an action rpg like diablo, all of those games are just mindless fun, not much depth and you can never create your own character in those either. You just pick a class.

I also don’t consider this an RPG. While there is a definite story and each player character is technically a part of that story, with so many copies of the same characters running around the landscape, neither of those things ring true."




You just described almost every MMO released in the last what, 7 years!?!?!?!


This.


Also, don't know why your biggest gripe is about a feature that was never mentioned for the game? That is like me being upset that my car isn't a  jet.


I don't have a problem with the rest of your review. Just saying that one giant gripe you had seems unfair as the game never promised this feature to begin with.


Oh far as the entire MMORPG question I quote what Grakulen posted.


"Marvel Heroes combines the core game-play style of Action RPGs and MMOs "


To call this an MMORPG is taking this line of text and twisting it isn't it? "Action RPGS." AND "MMOs." Which last I looked meant Massive multiplayer online. Which this game is. Action RPG I think is where they kinda messed it up. The term RPG really has no fitting in this game. They should of come out and said "Hey its a Diablo style game and thats all."


Just cause you came in with pre-conception of what the Genre is doesn't mean that it failed to achieve what the game wanted.


I digress. Game seems fun and I think your review isn't far off but a little harsh.


MMORPG Gamers/Developers need a reality check!

Lawl, I knew this game would get a shitty rating just from playing that god-awful beta. The most generic pile of shit I've ever played. 

I swear there was no communication between players, the talent tree was horrific, missions were just stupid, bosses were repititve and not challenging, etc.. etc. Game is just a quick cash in that will be forgotten in a matter of months.

Despite it feeling barebones even for a Diablo-style game, I still enjoyed it. Sadly the issues you mentioned are rather glaring (they just recently added the ability to make guilds and there is an actual quest to beta test PvP). There is also very little compelling loot, and little customization options for gear (green items are useless except for donating/selling; why can't we upgrade them? You can upgrade blues. And you can customize costumes a bit). As far as content, we don't even get randomly arranged dungeons (seeing as the guy who helped create the Diablo games made this, you'd think he'd include that feature in there).

I really hope they iron out the issues, as I do see potential for the game to be something awesome.

This game was just awful.  Marvel fans are going to have to wait while before they get a finely crafted game set in that universe i'm afraid.  This would most likely scare any investors away from a marvel game for a bit, though i hope that is not the case.

/Facepalm Grakulen... I don't even know what to say to your post.




MMORPG is it's own company, right?




You all can think on your own, right?




You can establish that this game is not a MMO, right?




I believe if you can correctly answer these questions you're able to deduce that this game is not an MMO. Regardless of what the developer states it is. If I handed you a fish and told you it was a new MMO would you put it up on your website because I told you it was an MMO?


While We're at it. Diablo 3 and Path of Exile aren't MMO's either. Why are they on the list?

"We do not classify Path of Exile as an MMORPG. It is a competitive online action RPG, and has little in common with games that are typically given the MMORPG moniker." - Grinding Gear Games 

 On their own website it states that the game is not classified as an MMORPG, yet here it is on your list as an MMORPG. These games are not MMO's they're Action RPG's.

 


Somebody, somewhere has better skills as you have, more experience as you have, is smarter than you, has more friends as you do and can stay online longer. Just pray he's not out to get you.

Yeah that's what I was thinking. Surprising for someone from MMORPG to question the validity of a game being labelled an MMORPG.

I played this game for half a week, I completed it and just didnt feel like playing any of the endgame, there was very little to keep me going. It was an enjoyable 17-20 hours though, but it just doesn't last.

The only thing I would disagree with you on is the cutscenes. The "2D cartoons" are called "motion comics." I don't particularly like them, but they're evidently quite a thing.


That said, I couldn't agree more. I kinda think you were generous on the Longevity, though.

can't create your own original character

Is the biggest reason..?


Was this a pun on the "mmo-lite" title for the:


"5/10, looks bad, looks old"


type of paragraph through the review..?






Although it's kind of amusing that MMORPG uses regular users for their reviews..

They call themselves an mmo but not an mmorpg. They make the distinction even in the part you quoted.

Rockjaw was pretty specific in one of his posts about how they think of the game

 

Hey guys, my name's Stephen Reid from Gazillion Entertainment; we're making Marvel Heroes. I'm not a developer but I play one one on the internet - in other words I'm in charge of the Community and Customer Support teams. I like answering questions.

We call the game a 'massive online action RPG' both to acknowledge that we're primarily an ARPG but also not to upset people who have a very strict definition of what 'MMO' means. The majority of the game is played in 'Public Combat Zones' which are similar to traditional MMO zones, but are also randomized periodically (not while you're in them!) to give that random element which so many ARPGs have been successful with.

I actually group more in Marvel Heroes than I do in Neverwinter.  I just leave the "Group in Instances" box checked in the options and it sets me in groups.  With this game, there is not "Holy Trinity" (Tank, Heals, DPS) like in most MMO's.  It has sorta tanks, sorta crowd control and lots of DPS.  I played Diablo III for about 2 months, but this I've played for longer already. I also agree it doesn't really fit into that "MMO" box that it keeps getting shoved into.
