Our Exclusive Review

Our Exclusive Review -

Our own Richard Duffek recently completed his review of City of Heroes - the comic book inspired MMORPG by Cryptic Studios.  He looks over many aspects of the game and shares his experiences with you.  Here is a snippet:

You will encounter relatively little true roleplaying, in the traditional sense, during a normal day playing CoH. And it's not really so much a lack of role-playing but merely a different form of role-playing. City of Heroes takes place in a fairly modern setting, and the characters in the game are more or less everyday people. You're not going to have your "role-playing lingo" that you find in so many fantasy based games where people throw some "Thee"s and "Thou"s into their everyday language and call it role-playing. In most of those games one of the biggest rules on the RP serves and for role-playing in general is the lack of any out of character conversations. This problem doesn't exist with City of Heroes because two heroes might very well talk about last night's basketball game. Due to the setting of the world all of the things which people would normally refrain from talking about in game in order to stay in character are perfectly acceptable.
