Don't you think this game should be re-reviewed? 5.8 points from the official review doesn't make justice to the actual state of the game.

Gamerevolution just published this re-review, by the way:

Pretty decent review.

Personally i think the game is good but without the polished of D3 ... still decent enough for me to level up some toons. (Seriously, few can afford the polish in blizz games).

And you can't get captain america and the other heroes anywhere unless you go back to the very very old marvel ultimate alliance games.

They did a re-review of the game and gave it much higher marks. Not sure why they didn't change it's original score. It may have deserved it back then but the game is much much better now.

People are like cats. When they die, you get a new one.

I agree completely they definitely need to give it another review now.

YES!   MMORPG.com, you really need to revisit this game.   The game is drastically different.   When this game first launched I DL'd it and uninstalled it in less than 2 days.   It was horrible and deserving of your initial score.    Just a week ago I re-installed after hearing positive things and I play for double digit hour stretches now!    So much of this game has changed, been improved on and simply added to.    

 

The score is completely NOT representative of the current state of this game.  

If I want a world in which people can purchase success and power with cash, I'll play Real Life. Keep Virtual Worlds Virtual!

Why do you mention D3? It's more CoH-ish?

I agree this game is way better than the score given if they did do a re-review I cant find it. Maybe we could get a MikeB response or something.

Have to agree with everyone else, the game has improved by leaps and bounds.  Hardly feels like the same title, frankly.

 

Also, this game is far more akin to D3 than CoH or any of the other superhero MMOs out there.  It's a loot-heavy action-rpg with a heavy multiplayer tilt rather than the more typical MMO CoH provided.  Boy, do I miss the latter game, though.

It's similar to D3 also in that a lot of people were dissatisfied with the launch product, and it was vastly improved based on feedback.

I like the achievement system they have in place to encourage constructive posts. More than that, the engagement and direct questions and answers the developers post to the users is really great, on par with or better than Wildstar & Carbine. I already liked their community efforts, but their C2E2 panel really won me over in combination with how they post on their forums.

Wow.  Lots of positive feedback here, and not from members with 1 post named "MarvelHeroesisthebestgameeverOMG".  I actually kind of liked the game and that was many months ago now so I'll definitely give it another go.

the game indeed improved a lot since launch. RIght now the only big issue i have is that unlocking heroes through in game means takes a whole lot longer than unlocking a champion in LoL with influence points (which is very very slow). And the microtransactions are just too expensive. A heroe cost more than $5 dollars but less than $10, why cant i just pay the exact amount of dollars? no, i have to pay 10 dollars because thats the next priced tier of microtrans.

 

Im sick of all those microtransaction pricing schemes. Charge me a specific price and be done with it. I wont need the extra microtransactions, i pay for what i want to use.

My endgame begins with character creation and ends with a new mmorpg

That drives me nuts in League, I've had a weird balance of RP between the three purchases I've made and a gift or two of RP, and the remaining balance is unspendable forever. It's really unsightly.

I've actually dumped m full G's twice in Marvel twice already, which is a little more pleasant to my OCD. It actually helped my clean out my Steam Wallet too, because I had a funny balance from selling trading cards and wallpapers and added the exact amount to the Steam Wallet for my second $10 G bundle. Actually, that reminds me that if you're interested in playing but don't want to spend a lot of money, it's a great reason to dump TF2 hats or other Steam valuables on the market and convert it directly into Marvel Heroes unlocks. Ends up still being free in the long run. Steam was one of the best things to happen to Marvel Heroes for that alone!

It feels like it takes about a month to build up the splinters for a high-cost hero, but at least you can tweak it a little with Special item Find gear.

Definitely what Diablo 3 shouldve been systems wise. Anyone who was a fan of Diablo 2 should check this out as the COO is none other than David Brevik (co-founder of blizz north, diablo creator). All of the heroes feel different and they are even adding raids shortly. You aren't limited to 4 people per game like D3 and you can also trade items! WHOAa!

I don't, I find most of the staff writers on this site are off-putting. But the idea of a re-review was a good point to discuss how much of the game has improved over the course of its first year. I think I leave mostly critical comments whenever I reply to a front-page story or review.
