Hands-On Preview at GameSpy

Hands-On Preview at GameSpy - Champions Online -

A new hands-on preview of Champions Online is up at GameSpy.

The preview runs through all the basics of the game from character creation, to player vs. player combat. The writer, Ryan Scott, also mentions PvP EXP as an alternate leveling track though, he does state it is likely quite a bit slower than normal leveling.

Players can also personalize the hue and emanation points of their powers, and he describes the character creation system as having three times as many sliders and pull downs as City of Heroes did, going so far as to wonder if it's too much (it's never too much!). The quest system is described as WoW-standard kill and retrieve quests for the most part, but there are some instanced adventures.

Read the full preview here.
