Yeah I don't know why the devs aren't lineing up to get you to make content for games.....

 

 

I believe the OP is stuck on this for his game design

Don't get me wrong it was a fun game but not what the devs were making.

This right here is why you shouldn't base your opinion on what you read on forums.
I've been in beta for 4 months now. Without breaking the NDA do you know what lvl this guy is talking about ? Level 1

That's right...he played part of the first mission of level 1. All of about 5 minutes in. He didn't even bother to open the skill tree and see fly is one of her powers.It's always been one of her powers so if he didn't see it...well.....look harder.

Yup some good info on the game in this thread.

This game is just awful..period.....it is outdated, clunky, boring and about ten years too late..it is an ultimate alliance/diablo clone...screw the NDA, I am never going back to this game again....

If I want heroes..I'll play DCU, Champions, or replay Infamous, there is no excuse for such a clunbky hereo game...Heck, Superhero Squad is better than this...

If I want a Diablo clone, I'll play Diablo, Torchlight, or Path of Exile...again this game is crap for an isometric game...

It is sorry that Disney is just trying to drain as much cash out of the Marvel Ip and next the Star Wars Ip without really caring about the fans...

Marvel is such a stroinger product than DC and if they had just one decent MMO, people would flock to it, but they keep going with epic fails...

 Ok so the game is free to play, except your roster is limited and NONE of marvels Headliner characters are going to be in it, so if i want to play any of the avengers such as Cap, Ironman, Hulk, Thor, Hawkeye, or Black Widow, (the last two of which i have no interest in) i have to buy them, ok so I spend 5 bucks and get a new character not bad right? WRONG, characters are rediculously overpriced (20 bucks per char), especially for the child like impressions they have been given. If you would like a good portion of the entire roster, you could always sacrifice half your rent money (200$) for a massive pack, (the same price you would spend for 10 characters) which doesn't even offer anything nearly worth the buy. All you would get is a unique costume for some of the characters only available in that pack like the black symbiote spidey suit.

While you have a limited initial roster if you don't pay for a hero or a package, they have said that ALL heroes will be unlockable for free in the form of random loot drops just for playing the game.  Take down a boss, get a chance at one of these otherwise $20 heroes dropping for you.  Paying just gets you access to the one you may want to play NOW, which makes sense.  Still don't have to pay a cent if you're willing to put in the playtime to earn them.

Just wait and see for your self

As much as i like this marvel ultimate alliance, i highly doubt it is going to destroy D3. If it can stay in xfire top 10, like D3, for 10 months, i would be impressed.

PoE is already out of there.

And even when MH is free, i doubt if they can get 12M people to play it.

The videos and pictures i've seen of this game look something awful, almost like disney got hold of the game and tried to pixar all of the characters with smooth non detailed textures. What texture we do see on characters look like a child drew them with a crayon and smudged them. 

 I am a big MUA fan too. I am hoping this is a MUA online with more heroes (now about the same with 20 or so).

Then again artwork can be overlooked as long as it isn't completely horrible and we don't really have to pay much for the game, wait, I spoke too soon. Ok so the game is free to play, except your roster is limited and NONE of marvels Headliner characters are going to be in it, so if i want to play any of the avengers such as Cap, Ironman, Hulk, Thor, Hawkeye, or Black Widow, (the last two of which i have no interest in) i have to buy them, ok so I spend 5 bucks and get a new character not bad right?

Actually i think STORM and Daredevil are in the free choices ... so i get at least TWO heroes that i like. I already read that you can "earn" new heroes as drops. It all depends on how rare the drop is .. if you can earn a hero every 2 hours, it won't be so bad.

Lastly, they do give out at least some hero so i am planning to try the game for free.

 If that weren't bad enough, Movement is based on point and click which means you will have to click the map every time you want your hero to move, or attack, or do anything, which after a substantial amount of time, gets very tiresome. In short, at least DCUO actually Tried to make a successful mmo, granted they produced the same game we've been playing for years with only a new theme, but at least in the end the game is and was affordable for the look and style that it was. With the direction this game is heading, Marvel can't even argue that they were targeting a younger Or older audience, were that the case, bonus characters would be more affordable for kids or actually have similar artwork to the Real ultimate alliance games which looked amazing for what they were.

Why is point-and-click a problem? Diablo 1, 2 & 3 are like that. TL1 & 2 are like that. PoE is like that. No one ever complains about point & click to move in action RPG before.

The game is diablo but with marvel heroes. If you didn't like diablos game play you wont like this...pretty simple.

I like Diablo type games....

However, I also expect certain things when it comes to staple heroes. 

I expect to fly as Iron Man, Thor, Storm... I expect to crawl on buildings as Spidey.... I expect to Jump high as the Hulk.

It is crazy!

This. And if i recall correctly, you can fly as Iron Man in Marvel Ultimate Alliance.

NYCC: Hands-On Gaming with "Marvel Heroes"

After reaching a few computer terminals to restore power -- and witnessing a Venom symbiote escape along the way -- we reach our first mini-boss fight, Living Laser. "With Laser being the first boss, he's very gentle," Brevik said, laughing. Ms. Marvel's flight power proved useful in avoiding Living Laser's blast patterns, and Brevik noted unlike in many MMOs, flight can be fully controlled rather than just having the character jump and hover. "You can't do anything while you're flying. Flight is a power in and of itself so it takes up a slot. You can't attack while you're flying, but you can fly over things and not get attacked," he explained.

 

Ok so you CAN jump and fly but in order to do so, you have to waste a power slot, which seems equally as lame to me, it's like well at least you can do it, you just have to be weaker in order to, which after reading this makes sense for some things, Iron Man has to sacrifice energy output to fly etc. In either case, whether you can or can't jump, it's still an overly bad game. 

Using a power slot sounds ok to me. Just like in D3, many defensive skills take a slot. If flight offers advantages, it should.

But no attacks during flight? That just does NOT gell with the idea of many super heores (Iron Man, Thor, The Human Torch, Storm ...)

I recently went back to DCUO and its a friggen blast. Use a controller though, definitely makes all the difference.

Funnily enough 200$ is half the rent for where I'll be living next autumn when I start my Master's XD

Lol its a pretty good deal not gonna lie. Good luck with your masters.

-bows head- thank you, and just to make it funnier that's with all the utilities factored in (heat, water, electricity and internet) ^^

And the creepy unwashed neighbor who continuously mutters to himself, also factored in.

If you don’t do stupid things while you’re young, you’ll have nothing to smile about when you’re old.

The problem with DCUO is that i cannot play an actual DC character (or a marvel one for that matters). I made an iron man look-alike but it just does not feel right.

The game wasn't bad or anything (and yes, i use a controller to play) but i would rather play marvel ultimate alliance or the Justice league ARPG instead.

People who have not given this game a through playthrough have no business criticizing it.
