OP  6/26/13 6:32:01 PM#1

Marvel Heroes Online has been a game that many Marvel fans and MMO fans together have looked forward to playing. Released in early June, we've been putting our superheroes through their paces since then to offer up our official review. See what we discovered and then leave your thoughts in the comments.

I’ll tell you the truth, I’m still not entirely sure how to classify this game. It bills itself as an MMORPG, but I don’t think that’s an accurate label. While it certainly is online and there are certainly a multitude of people playing at any given moment, it feels far more like a solo game with some occasional cooperative situations. 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.

I have been playing the game since early beta.  I still play it.  Its more like Diablo II as an mmo with superheroes/marvel locations pasted over them.  Hulk=Barbarian, Captain America=Paladin or Monk, etc. I see more similarities with Diablo II or Diablo III (but done better than Diablo III).  Its just on a larger scale.  Its the same kind of mindless fun. In Diablo II/III all the characters are the same, just with slightly different appearances, so each Barbarian was like the other Barbarians, so its like that in this one.  Only difference is you use a single costume to stand apart from the others in Marvel Heroes.  All in all, I would have given it a higher score, though its not really a true MMO, its more of an ARPG, like Diablo, II, III.

This has more build options then mmorpgs. You can skill how ever you in what ever trees. Mmorpgs are 95% have 2 builds per char that everyone puts the same points in.

It is a very nice game but i am waiting for more heroes be released, especially i am hoping for Gambit or Nightcrawler as my time in the beta did not really give me a strong desire to re-run the game several times.

I have been playing it for the past few days. If my MMO was a meal, MH would be the snack to tie me over till I got my supper. For what it is, I may keep playing and chuck them a few bucks now and then. I really am having some mindless fun.

It is what it is

6/27/13 8:50:03 AM#7
my main issue is once u finish story mode there is no point in playing anymore. I finished at lvl 28 and the lvl max is 60. whats the point of playing anymore? no dungeons or instances to run. no raids. dailies r just little "instances" that u already ran during story mode just harder. there is no reason to acquire better gear when there is no use for it. grinding the same handful of dailies to get better gear to more easily grind the same dailies is pointless to me. as stated in the article the gear doesn't change ur look and the dailies were done in story mode so when u finish story mode the game pretty much dies at that point. nothing new to see or do.

The strong are sometimes wrong but the weak are never free.

yeah, it is pretty much Diablo with shared maps and auto grouped boss levels but it is fun and it is the game that I might have hoped D3 could have been.

I have been playing it in between FFXIV beta weekends. If you want some quick fun that doesn't take a lot out of out then this is a  decent enough game.

All die, so die well.

As I was reading, that's exactly what I was thinking.

They have never called themselves an mmorpg as far as I know. They've always said they're game is an mmoArpg. MH is a typical arpg with multiplayer areas.

To those who keep comparing this game to Diablo III, it is not Diablo III.  Imagine Diablo III with like 50 people in the same area taking down a boss.  That is the biggest difference.


What does this game have that Diablo III does not?  A Cow Level... 'nuff said.


Marvel Heroes is a fun game.  It is always a blast to see a purple item drop and wonder what it is, or isn't I suppose.

If they added a more robust Supergroup functionality, player/guild housing and some other... nice things, it would be far far more fun than it is already. 

Is this a game where you will spend 3 months digging into and going nuts in? No.  But it is one where you can play for a day or two, or 15 minutes to say "hey that was pretty fun". 

Since it is "free", you can technically play the game without spending a dime and get characters and costumes as drops.   Which brings up the replayability if you do not pay anything.

You obviously have not played a variety of mmorpgs. Just to name one, Rift, has a huge amount different builds for each class. Marvel Heroes is probably one of the farthest down the totem pole for variety of builds.

Doesn't stand a chance against Path of Exile in MMO ARPG category and does not stand a chance against DCUO in superhero MMO cathegory.

As far as build options go there are only a few powers that are worth leveling.  Plus you are very limited in power points, so every hero who has some knowledge of the game is pretty much the same as any other.

Its fun the first time you play in a mindless sort of way, but since alts will be doing the same areas/missions is gets old fast.

Marvel should be ashamed for putting its name on this pile of crap.

A year of hype for a 5.6, not really a MMO, we need more names for the variety of online games out there. I think there are browser games out there that are better, I am a comics fan myself but would not play this.

We're too hung up on whether a title fits perfectly into a genre box.  A recent video interview here with Scott Hartsman touched on that.  He mentioned that slapping the mmo label on a game compounds the cost.  He felt many games would be better served by not using the mmo label while still providing the same basic experience.  I got the impression he also felt the mmo label could be really confining with regards to creativity and options the game could provide.

It makes me wonder if this is why "The Division" is not billing itself as an mmo.  I'm sure Marvel Heroes is fun enough and doesn't need the label mmo to enjoy the experience.

May the game be ever in your favor.

I'm a Marvel fan and hate this game... I'm pretty sure most Marvel fans do. There are of course some out there who don't, and good for you, but I wanted to see a fully realized Marvel Universe in 3D... This game feels like a reskinned Diablo game.

It is fun if you just jump in once and a while and play casually.  I play twice a week for an hour with my five year old on my lap pressing the special attack buttons.  It can be a nice diversion from games where you have to think like Eve.


Overall, I agree that there is little to hold anyone for an extended period of time.  Most people finish all the content before level 35 and there is no end-game.

I liked MMOs better when gamers didn't play them, and just geeks did.
