Reviews

"Offering an unparalleled amount of raw gaming fun, deep progression systems, and a seemingly never ending stream of meaningful gameplay updates, Marvel Heroes 2015 is a game that continues to improve and impress at every turn in the road. ...Gazillion has left no stone unturned in its commitment to make Marvel Heroes 2015 the best it can be. It offers simple enough systems for even the most casual of online gamers to immediately grasp, and enough depth that it was easily one of our most played titles of 2014."

- Ten Ton Hammer, December 2014

“Marvel Heroes 2015 is set to expand on everything that made the game successful, while trimming much of the fat in terms of improvements over the core model.”

– Hardcore Gamer

“Comparisons to the Diablo series aren’t lip-service; Marvel Heroes plays exactly like a gamma-irradiated puree of Diablo II and Marvel Ultimate Alliance. Real-time mouseclicking combat? Check. Tons of loot? You bet! Crafting? Absolutely. Randomly generated levels and loot drops? Stop it, my nipples are getting hard. Speaking as a fan of both franchises (as well as the Marvel universe in general), my time in the closed beta was nothing short of nerdvana.”

- PC Gamer, May 2013

“Marvel Heroes combines the best of the MMO genre with the best of the Action RPG genre”

Curse

“Marvel Heroes is a beautiful game, and an incredibly fun one at that. It also offers a distinct change of pace for gamers who may dig certain aspects of Diablo III, but are looking for a richer overall setting to while away the hours.”

Ten Ton Hammer

Das Fazit gleich an erster Stelle: absolut empfehlenswert! Wer Marvel mag oder auf bunte, actionreiche ActionRPGs steht, darf auf jeden Fall einen Blick auf dieses Free2Play-Werk werfen!

Richtig gehört, das Spiel ist umsonst. Das F2P-Geschäftsmodell impliziert damit einen Ingame-Shop, in dem sich mittels Echtgeld Verbesserungen, Booster, neue Charaktere, optische Boni und sonstige Beschleunigungen einkaufen lassen. Nichts von den Dingen, die sich allein über Echtgeld kaufen lassen, scheint mir allerdings spielrelevant zu sein.

Vielleicht etwas irreführend ist das Charaktersystem: Wer das Spiel neu beginnt, darf aus einem Pool von Starthelden genau einen aussuchen, mit dem er spielen möchte. Alle anderen werden danach wieder gesperrt. Allerdings gibt es im Spiel noch weitaus mehr Helden als dieses Anfangsangebot. Die anderen Helden müssen freigeschalten werden - der schnelle Weg ist, wie könnte es anders sein, der Weg über den Echtgeldmarkt. Allerdings lassen sich die Helden auch über intensives Spielen freischalten: etwa alle 8 Minuten lassen die Gegner im Spiel "Ewigkeitskristalle" (Eternity Splinters) fallen. Für 175 von diesen Kristallen lässt sich bei einem Händler ein Zufallsheld freischalten, wer mehr Kristalle investiert, kann sich einen bestimmten Helden aussuchen (Preise schwanken zwischen 200 und 600 Kristallen). Es kann sich jeder selbst ausrechnen, wie viel aktive Spielzeit damit erforderlich ist, um den eigenen Wunschcharakter zu ergattern. Wichtig: die Kristalle scheinen von allen Gegnern gleichermaßen zu droppen, ein bestimmtes Kristallfarming entfällt damit, es bleibt lediglich die "Pflicht", das Spiel zu genießen. Eine erfrischend konstante Belohnung über das Spiel hinweg, wie ich finde!

Nicht freischaltbar über diese Kristalle sind zusätzliche Heldenoptiken. Angeblich besteht eine minimale Chance, dass auch diese von Gegner gedroppt werden. Angesichts der Fülle der Kostüme dürfte das Warten auf ein bestimmtes aber ziemliche Zeitverschwendung sein.

Die Grafik des Spiels ist, wie ich finde, äußerst ansprechend designed und stimmig in Szene gesetzt - wirklich viel kann man beim quietschbunten Marvellook vermutlich eh nicht falsch machen. Ich persönlich war überrascht, mit wie viel Liebe zum Detail die Helden, aber auch die Schurken animiert wurden für ein F2P.

Die Story ist leider ein wenig textlastig, da sehr viel über schlichte Questdialoge abgehandelt wird. Nicht an allen Stellen ist die Sprache vollständig auf Deutsch übersetzt, die übersetzten Teile sind jedoch von verständlicher Qualität. Questlog und - damit irgendwie verbunden - auch das Wegpunktsystem sind leider ein wenig chaotisch geraten und erschließen sich möglicherweise nicht von Anfang an. Ist aber auch nicht das erste Spiel, das damit zu kämpfen hat.

Das Spiel steuert sich flüssig, braucht möglicherweise aufgrund der Superkraft-Hotkeys (ASDFGGHJ) ein bisschen Umgewöhnung (oder Umstellung in den Optionen, ich habe nicht überprüft, ob das geht), geht dann aber recht zügig von der Hand. Das Interface bleibt hinter der generellen Spieloptik leider ein bisschen zurück, ganz entgegen dem aktuellen Trend der Zeit wird der Spieler mit nicht unbedingt selbsterklärendenden Elementen konfrontiert. Weshalb beispielsweise ein EXP-Balken aus zwei Ebenen besteht, wurde zumindest mir aus dem Spiel heraus nicht ersichtlich. Questdialoge lassen sich leider auch sehr schnell versehentlich wegklicken - scheinbar gibt es aber keine Möglichkeit, diese dann noch einmal anzeigen zu lassen. Diese Aussage allerdings unter Vorbehalt, denn so tief habe ich da schlussendlich nicht nachgeforscht. Den Spielspaß hemmt das ohnehin nur marginal.

Des Fazits zweiter Teil: Marvel Heroes 2015 ist ein für seine Preisklasse absolut empfehlenswertes Spiel. Es unterhält, es ist kurzweilig, es sieht gut aus und es besitzt einige interessante Mechanismen, die für eine längere Beteiligung am Spiel sorgen sollen. Ob das auch funktioniert, muss jeder für sich selbst entscheiden. Der Einsatz von Echtgeld ist absolut nicht erforderlich, es sei denn, man möchte bestimmte Meilensteine umgehend und ohne Aufwand erreichen. Die Community scheint ebenfalls nett zu sein, ich habe neben dem Spielen ein bisschen den Chatverlauf mitverfolgt und nur äußerst selten personelle Ausfälle registriert - in den meisten Fällen war man äußerst hilfsbereit, hat gerne diskutiert, sich über Marvel-Filme ausgelassen oder Items verglichen. Der übliche Wahnsinn in einem MMORPG eben.

Wen die Bilder nicht sowieso schon abschrecken, der sollte dem Spiel auf jeden Fall eine Chance geben.

Marvel Heroes ist Mittelmässig gestartet, und hatt durch die enorme Hingabe der Entwickler eine Mutation zu einem Wahren Genre King hingelegt.

Das Erste echte Action Hack'n'Slay MMORPG das sogar Raids bietet basiert auf dem gleichnamigen Marvel Universum und bietet einen vielzahl Unterschiedlicher Helden mit ganz eigenen Fähigkeiten und Spielweissen. Oft können Helden wie Wolverin oder Thor in 2-3 Richtungen geskillt werden, Supporter, reiner DD oder vielleicht doch eher tanklastig? Mehr Nahkampf oder eher Midrange? Jeder der über 20 Helden bietet eine Vielzahl dieser Mechaniken, zudem verfügt jeder Held über sogenannte Ultimative Fähigkeiten über die nur Er verfügt.

Jeder Held ist Hochwertig Vertont, zum Teil sogar Original Sprecher aus den Filmen, und Reagiert mit kleineren Frotzeleien oder Liebeleien auf einen anderen Helden in der Nähe, dies Verleiht dem Spiel ein ganz Erhebliches Wir Gefühl. Die Figuren und auch die Umgebung sind mit viel liebe zum Detail Gestaltet und sehen mit der Unreal Engine 3 einfach Klasse aus, und hier ist auch eine grosse Stärke des Spiels, Action, hier fliegt einem Buchstäblich alles um die Ohren was in irgendeiner weisse Zerstört werden kann, es Kracht und Knallt das es eine Wahre Freude ist, und gerade in den grossen Maps wie Midtown Patrol oder den Öffentlichen Questgebietet wo viele Spieler gleichzeitig gegen Horden von Bösewichten kämpfen, bekommt man immer wieder dieses Grinsen in sein Gesicht, "Wow, was zum Teufel geht den hier ab" Mega Action per Exelent.

Die Story wird über Vollvertonte Comicsequenzen Vorrangetrieben und führt einen bis Level 60, insgesamt bis zu 3 Schwierigkeitsgrade gibt es, und bis zu 3 mal kann man auch die jeweiligen Story Belohnungen Absahnen, zudem kann der Held nach Erreichen des Maximalen Levels wieder auf level 1 "gelöscht" werden um sich erneut auf lv60 zu kämpfen, um sogennante Prestige level zu erreichen, dies bringt kleinere Vorteile und ein Namensfarbänderung mit sich, neben der Suche im Endgame nach dem Perfekten Roll auf dem Item, und dem Aufstieg im Omega System, eine Art weiterer Skillbaum, gibt es also viel Möglichkeiten seinen Lieblingsheld zu Beschäftigen.

Serverweite wiederkehrende sich Abwechselnde Events bringen viel Abwechslung und fördern den Sammeltrieb, hier kann man Spezielle items finden die gegen Besondere Belohnungen die es nur während des Events gibt, eingetauscht werden können. Keine angst, sollte man sein Ziel verfehlen, alle Events sind wie gesagt Wiederkehrend, so das seine bereits Errungenen Fortschritte weitergeführt werden können. Serverweite Buffs wie mehr XP, sind ebenfalls in diesen Events inbegriffen, mein Favourit, Midtown Madnes, Action bis zum abwinken, und Tonnenweise Loot ;)

Dies ist nur ein kleiner Auszug was Marvel Heroes bietet, aber kommen wir zum F2P Model, tja das ist immer so eine Sache, generell bietet Marvel Heroes ein Faires Bezahlmodel, Kostüme können mit Extrem viel Glück und einem hohen Wert an Spezial Item Fund ingame droppen, im sogenannten G points Laden gibt es sie zwischen 5-8 euro, Helden und Pets sowie die neuen Teamup Heroes können über sogenannte Eternity Splinter ingame Freigeschaltet werden, 200-600 solcher Splinter benötigt man, was je nach Spezial Item Fundwert im Spiel zwischen 30-50 Stunden dauern kann, völlig ok wenn man bedenkt das man mit einem Helden schon mehrere Hundert Stunden zubringen kann, im G Laden kosten Helden zwischen 5-12 Euro.

Das einzigste das wirklich Relevant werden könnte, ist das Inventar, b.z.w. die Bank, sollte einem Marvel Heroes gefallen, und man mehr als 1-2 Helden Spielen kommt man nicht umhin diese zu Erweitern, denn viele Uniques z.b. die man doppelt und mehr hatt, können beim Crafter gegen hohen Wert eingetauscht werden, und dazu benötigt man Platz, hier haben Spieler mit einer vollausgebauten Bank tatsächlich Vorteile gegenüber anderen Spielern die rein F2P sind, ich Empfehle jedem längerfristigen Spieler mindestens 10-20 Euro in das Erweitern seiner Bank zu Investieren, ist dies getan, besteht Praktisch kein Grund mehr zum weiteren Investieren von Geld, es sei denn man wird totaler Fan so wie ich ;)

Kommen wir zum Ende, sonst nimmt es kein Ende, Ich kann jedem der mit Marvel und dem Genre Hack'n'Slay (Action RPG+MMO) etwas anfangen kann, nur dringend Empfehlen sich ein wenig Zeit zu nehmen und in dieses Spiel mal Reinzuschauen, Marvel Heroes bietet alles was das Herz begehrt, und die Entwickler bringen ständig neuen Content, euch erwartet Unmengen an Inhalten, die sich nach und nach Erschliessen, je länger ihr im Spiel seid, und ein einmaliger Fun Factor, das ich seid Diablo 2, ja ich habs tatsächlich gesagt ;) nicht mehr Erlebt habe.

Von Möglichen 10 Punkten, würde ich 9 vergeben, Die Entwickler selber sind dermassen mit Herzblut bei der sache, das sie dieses Anfänglich etwas Holprige Spiel, in ein Wahres Monster Verwandelt haben, mein Tiefster Respekt für Gazillion, die hier eine Unvergleichbare Arbeit abliefern.

Marvel Heroes ist ein klassisches rumprügeln mit einer stetig wachsenden Anzal an spielbaren Helden und inzwischen auch "nicht so ganz Helden". Es werden hierbei unzählige referenzen auf die unterschiedlichen Marvel-Welten / Universen genommen so dass die verschiedenen Ausrichtungen der Charaktere durchaus mit ihren unterschiednlichen Versionen korrespondieren können - so man denn will.. Aber natürlich gibt es auch hier hardliner die "den einen build" verfolgen... Grundsätzlich ist der Schwierigkeitsgrad jedoch eher niedrig wodurch man lange nicht so schnell zu einer Glaskanone wird wie seinerzeit bei Diablo 2 - wo die Macher eigentlich herkommen.... Ehemalige Blizzardianer und Condor-Programmierer (aka Blizzard North) sind hier beteiligt oder beteiligt gewesen, und den Touch Diablo merkt man immer mal wieder. Runenwörter, die aus drop-Runen mit entsprechenden Symbolen der Keilschrift stammen sind stimmig für Asgard, aber eben auch eine D2 referenz die unleugbar bleibt.

Nun es ist ein Free2Play Titel also kommt schnell die Frage auf, ist es das auch wirklich? Oder eher Pay 2 Win? Nein, definitiv nicht Pay 2 Win, aber wohl schon stark Pay 2 Play. Man hat eine auswahl an Starthelden von denen man einen geschenkt bekommt. Ausrüstung wird gedroppt, kein Problem, aber wenn es um mehr Abwechslung geht, dann kann man entweder "Splinter" jagen / farmen gehen, oder aber die Geldbörse Zucken.

Heißt dass man kann alles ingame erspielen? Was die Charaktere und dazugehörige Team-Up NPC Helfer betrifft, ja das ist möglich, jedoch dauert dies endlos lange, da die Droprate besagter Splinter nicht gleich katastrophal aber doch niederschmetternd ist, wenn man sieht wie viel da schon wieder in kürze dazu kommt...

Einzig Kostüme - also alternative Optische Erscheinungsbilder für den eigenen Helden sind unglaublich schwer mit Ingame-Methoden zu bekommen... Da die Ausrüstung die man von den Mobs bekommt keine Optische Wirkung hat sehen eben alle immer so aus, wie das aktive Kostüm (+ eventuellem Visuellen Effekt), wenig abwechslung, vergleicht man dies mit MMO Titeln wie GW2 oder WOW.. Andererseits sind so die Helden immer "stimmig" gekleidet und keiner fällt schon durch die Optik total aus dem Rahmen.

Was also erwartet einen Hier? Viel zu tun?

* Nun die Storyline ist relativ umfangreich
* wird auch noch immer erweitert
* endlos PVE wie
*** "Midtown Madness" eine Map auf der immer Gegner und Bosse spawnen, oder
*** "Terminals" (Bosskämpfe ähnlich D3 Kopfgeld)
* "Kurzgeschichten" also "Nebengeschichten" in Form von Inszenierten Missionen abseits der Hauptstory

* 38 spielbare Charaktere (stand Sep 2014)
* + 16 weiteren Helden in der nächsten Zeit (14 namentlich und 2 geheime)

* 13 Teamup NPCs
* +6 "to come" in der nächsten (relativen)

Und wer ganz viel Zeit und Muße hat, kann das Maximallevel seines aktiven Helden durch Prestiegeränge (ähnlich COD:MP) zurücksetzen und neu anfangen... Hierbei wird je nach Rang die XP Menge auch drastisch erhöht, die notwendig ist um die Levelleitern zu erklimmen....


Kurzum, ein kleines aber auch großes Spiel, dessen Langzeitmotivation im immer größer werdenden Umfang liegt. Wer Diablo-Style spiele mag und/oder ein Marvel Fan ist sollte einen Blick riskieren. Kostet ja nichts :)

Ein super Spiel.
Vergleichbar mit Diablo, Path of Exile, Torchlight, etc.
An der deutschen Übersetzung muss noch gefeilt werden aber ansonsten läuft es Prima.

Ab lvl 25 geht das Spiel erst richtig los. Es hat massenhaft Kontent und einen Fairen Itemshop.
Alles geht auch ingame freizuschalten.

Die Steuerung und das Itemsystem ist von Diablo 3 übernommen. Aber es gibt auch Neuerungen. Z.B. kannst du jederzeit zwischen den 40 Helden wechseln und sogar Synergien aufbauen (wenn du es denn frei Geschaltet hast). Du hast (später) Herausforderungen ähnlich den Nephalem Portalen aus D3 und Gruppenevents bei denen es richtig ab geht. Jede Woche ist ein neuer Event um z.B. Minipets zu gewinnen.

Moin Moin

Ich fange mal an mit der Story :D!

Die Story:
Die Story ist eigentlich sehr cool und auch in abwechslungsreichen Umgebungen. Aber die Questgeber sind nicht sehr, naja… Gesprächig sag ich mal, die meisten sagen nur einen kurzen Spruch und den Rest müssen wir selber lesen was manchmal ganz schön viel ist!

Die Charaktere:
Im Gegensatz zu DC Universe Online (ich weiß das dies beides verschiedene Firmen sind :D) spielen wir hier einen der vorgegebenen Helden au dem Marvel Universum (in DCUO mussten wir einen eigenen Helden erstellen). Was ich persönlich aber nicht schlecht finde. Jetzt werden wahrscheinlich manche denken das es doch ziemlich schnell langweilig werden kann, wenn einem immer der gleiche Charakter über den Weg läuft. Aber das ist eigentlich gar nicht so oft der Fall! Es ist ziemlich geschickt gemacht, da man schon von Anfang an eine Auswahl von mehreren Charakteren hat und im Spiel auch später weitere 6 Stück freischaltet. Außerdem kann man die restlichen Charaktere mit den kostenpflichtigen G-Punkten kaufen oder mit den kostenlosen Ewigkeit splittern. Natürlich kann man für eigentlich jeden Charakter noch ein Kostüm dazu kaufen (nur mit G-Punkten) damit sie noch cooler aussehen!

Die Grafik:
Die Grafik ist sehr im Comic style gehalten, und die Zwischensequenzen sind animierte Comics, was ich sehr cool finde! Die Charaktere sind auch sehr cool gestalte. Auch die Umgebungen sind sehr schön gestaltet und gefallen mir gut.

Informationen:
Die hat das Spiel sehr viele! Sogar in den Ladebildschirmen sind immer mal wieder einzelne kurze Informationen eingeblendet. Außerdem kann man auch viel lernen wenn man viele Nebenmissionen macht, dann erfährt man oft auch schon viel über die Geschichten von verschiedenen Clans, Heldengruppen und Vereinigungen (X-Man, Hydra, Shield und haste nicht gesehen!). Deshalb ist es auch ziemlich hilfreich wenn man etwas mehr über das Marvel Universum lernen möchte.

Spaßfaktor:
Der ist in diesem Spiel meiner Meinung nach ziemlich hoch! Es macht sehr viel Spaß in die Rolle der verschiedenen Helden zu schlüpfen und das ganze Marvel Universum unsicher zu machen.
Manchmal kann es jedoch sein das es kurz mal langweilig wird da sich die Missionen manchmal wiederholen.

Also alles in einem finde ich das Spiel sehr gut! Es macht Spaß, hat Informationsreiche Missionen, eine landläufige Story, gute Grafik und auch eine große Auswahl an Charakteren!

I recommend this game IF, and ONLY IF:

1) You bring your own friends.
2) You never contact customer support, or require help or moderation of any kind. At all.
3) You are ok with boutique pricing.

It's a fun game. They do a great job on the heroes. The roster is the highlight of this game, and depth and diversity of roster is what holds the Diablo clone that is Marvel Heroes together. That said, there are thirty-something heroes and maybe one and half heroes worth of content to play through, so there is a lot of repetition. Of course, repetition is the foundation of all video gaming, so, as usual, it's more a matter of finding a form of repetition you enjoy, as opposed to avoiding it, which is virtually impossible.

The main problem here is the community, by which I mean both the devs and the players. The players are the most sycophantic group of white knights I've ever encountered online, which is really saying a lot. You'd think you were playing the game with the dev's spouses, as personally as they take any and all criticism of such a deeply flawed title. And there is a lot of legitimate criticism to be made of a game that was downright terrible a year ago, and still, in its new playable form, remains only one-quarter finished, at the most generous estimate. Mention that fact, or allude to it in any way, and prepare to be made pariah by Marvel's zealot based online community. Worse, you could ask a question, and reveal yourself to be someone who does not comb the Marvel Heroes forums for the information required to play the game. Only a lazy scumbag would expect a game to be explained in-game, without having to go look up patch notes after leaving Steam to sign in at a third party website, and the Marvel community enforces this type of summary judgement with a mixture of glee and zeal that would impress even the most jaded citizens of Ironforge. This is internet tribalism at its finest, and the resulting experience as a player, particularly a new player, is correspondingly atrocious.

The devs and moderators, sadly, are far worse. Whether you're talking about the development team, or the moderators, poor communication is the hallmark of Gazillion Entertainment. Be prepared to do frequent out of game research, simply because the devs can't be bothered explaining even the simplest aspects of play in-game. And pray Yig will help you should you ever require assistance with anything, at any point, because the support department at Gaz certainly isn't going to help you. You will never be a good enough customer to even be treated like a customer, much less a good one.

Which is almost fascinating, because Marvel Heroes can be quite expensive. New heroes cost $4.50, $9, or $13.50, depending (mostly) on how long they've been available. A single new costume for said hero can be anywhere from $4.50 to $14.50. It is painfully easy to spend $500 on this game, and claims of thousands spent are not uncommon. This is boutique pricing straight off Melrose in LA, but the whole thing is run by a group of people whose customer service skills would be considered unprofessional by Orange County swap meet standards. The true marvel here is that Marvel has left their multizillion dollar IP in the hands of people who don't just ignore their customers, but often seem to have a genuine dislike for them.

Don't get me wrong. The game is fun to play.

Just bring your own friends. And be prepared to throw down big money. At a business where the proprietors and other customers will bridge the entire spectrum between pointed disinterest and open hostility.

Marvel Heroes is an interesting game. It plays like Diablo, as in it’s an action RPG with loot drops and classes (heroes) to play as. That said, it has had an interesting history, at least as far as video games go. It was originally developed by Cryptic Studios under the name Marvel Universe, but it ended up getting cancelled. Gazillion Studios took over the rights and rebranded it as the name we know today, minus the 2015. That came in May of this year, though I expect it to change to 2016 next summer. We’ll see about that, though. Anyway!

I’ve been playing Marvel Heroes 2015 off and on since July, and I’ve been having a blast so far. I picked Rocket Raccoon as my first hero (the one you get for starting the game) since he looked like he’d be a lot of fun, and Guardians of the Galaxy was about to hit theaters. I played him for a bit, to level 12 or so, but heard he was getting his powers completely changed by the developers. This made me wonder whether it was worth the time leveling him up or not, since he was going to change anyway, and I ended up putting him on the shelf for later.

Since I enjoyed the game enough to buy a hero, I chose to buy Loki; his powers were pretty unique, and I thought that it wouldn’t hurt to try something new. He has the ability to make illusions and send them after the enemy, either by hitting an enemy with his scepter or using another skill to create several. I remember using the ability he gets far down his illusion tree pretty often – the one where his illusions drop down like a meteor. Unfortunately, Loki’s Ultimate (a skill heroes get at level 52) is pretty lackluster. I admit I don’t know much about the comics (and I do hope to eventually change that) but Loki’s Ultimate has him turn into a frost giant for 20 seconds, changing the skill bar to unique skills only the frost giant can use. This would be fine if the frost giant didn’t move so slowly and if Loki actually did this in the comics. The Marvel Heroes 2015 forums are full of people expressing their distaste for Loki’s Ultimate, so hopefully it will change eventually. I thought it was kind of neat at first, turning into something so huge and powerful, but moving so slowly killed it for me. I did get Loki to level 60, though, and that helped me level up other heroes, since the game gives an experience boost the more heroes you have leveled to max.

Other heroes I have bought or randomly acquired with in-game currency (Eternity Splinters, which drop once every 6-8 minutes or so) include Iron Man, Squirrel Girl, Captain America, Scarlet Witch, Human Torch, Thing, Taskmaster, Deadpool, Wolverine, Storm, Nova, Rogue, Moon Knight, Daredevil, Emma Frost, Punisher, Colossus, and Thor. So far, Human Torch and Iron Man have been my favorites to play, but I’ve just started to play Nova now and I haven’t touched Rogue yet.

As a whole, the gameplay is fun. I haven’t done any raids (end game content) yet, but even so I have felt some heroes needing more attention from the developers than others. Some heroes, such as Scarlet Witch, have not gotten their ’52 Rework, or 52 Review’ yet, which means she has no signature power. Like Ultimates, Signatures are unlocked at a certain level, though this level is 30, whereas Ultimates are 52. Signatures are usually pretty vital, and heroes without them really feel it. Not only that, but 52 Reviews usually end up with a complete overhaul of a hero’s powers. In other words, I haven’t played Scarlet Witch because I’m waiting for her Review.

Even with Reviews, some heroes are still lackluster, and need attention. Captain America is the one most people think of when they think of a hero who needs help. He’s squishier than he should be, and his signature doesn’t last long enough, with a minute long cooldown. (Most signatures have a 20-30 second cooldown, for comparison.) My boyfriend played Cap and really wanted to like him, but felt like he had too many problems right now. Hopefully Cap will get a loving readjustment, but we’ll see how long it takes for that to happen, if it ever does.

The free-to-play aspect of the game is pretty fair, especially compared to similar ones on the market. Eternity Splinters drop about once every 6-8 minutes, and are used to purchase heroes, box space, or team ups. 175 Eternity Splinters allow you to get a random hero. The downside to this is that you might get one you already have; if this happens you can level their Ultimate to have a shorter cooldown. The only thing I’ve felt needed to be purchased was box space, or Stash space. This cannot be purchased with Eternity Splinters and without enough boxes you will feel overwhelmed. Each regular Stash box costs 500Gs, which equates to $5. If you like the game, dropping $5 every once in a while isn’t a big deal.

The bosses are usually fun to play against, though when there are a lot of players on screen things can get laggy and you may miss Juggernaut charging you; this isn’t a big deal, though, since dying doesn’t really feel detrimental in any way. (Probably does in raids, but like I said, I haven’t done any of those yet.)

There are events that happen very regularly, some very grindy. (Get 2000 of an item to have Agent Coulson from SHIELD be your team up.) That said, the events as a whole bring life to the game, and the developers are constantly adding things. New heroes are being added once a month or so, and while some feel rushed out the door, others are almost perfect. All in all, I would recommend trying this game out if you’re interested in Diablo-like games and/or the Marvel Universe, especially since it’s free.

Sir Faulty's Scorecard

Personal Rating: "Worth playing"
Traditional Rating: 7 out of 10
Genre: Massively Multiplayer Online Isometric Action Role Playing Game

A Marvel-ous universe rebooted

Marvel Heroes 2015 - the action focused MMO released late last year - is another phoenix born from the ashes of calamity. Just like Squares online magnum opus, Final Fantasy 14, which launched to horrific reviews and incredibly scathing and toxic user experiences all round back in 2010 only to resurface as a critical favorite three years later with A Realm Reborn that now boasts an impressive 2 million subscribers, Gazillion entertainment seems to be taking a leaf out of Square Enix's book by heading back to the drawing board for its online free-to-play aRPG after a not so stellar launch that was bug riddled but also lacking any real merit-able content to make a person want to invest time with it. Most promptly threw it to the sidelines and forgot about it after launch but Gazillion Entertainment seems to have been toiling away listening to suggestions made by the die hard community that stayed behind because what has reemerged is a fun and addictive Diabloesque game set within the Marvel Universe.

Taking on any kind of MMO is no small feat. They often require dedication and patience. Sadly, most are hamstrung by the genres conventions (kill X and fetch me Y, incessant level-grinding to get anywhere – which can get particularly offensive especially in free-2-play MMO’s where users are often bombarded by cash shops selling items to help advance leveling at a quicker pace). I admit I love exploring these living; breathing digital worlds but as I have gotten older and wiser I can’t really say I enjoy playing them. There was a time when all I did was play MMO’s. They literally consumed what playtime I had but as my time got more and more precious I found I started to enjoy more focused, less time consuming games and therefore was rather reluctant to plunge back into these waters. Seems I need not have worried at all because Gazillion Entertainment has crafted a fun, entertaining and incredibly generous free-to-play aRPG that is actually a blast to play and boasts an impressive quality and sheen to it.

While all the super-star heroes are still locked away in pay packages what heroes are available for immediate play are fun and certainly don't dampen the enjoyment that can be had here. On the odd occasions you will get the chance to invite one of the more weighty Marvel stars into your campaign through an in-game currency that is dropped at quite an alarming rate. Granted they do cost a certain amount of this in-game currency but now they are not unattainable in the way that forces you to head for the cash shop or else face grinding until you are blue in the face. Crafting has also been overhauled and is vastly different to any kind of crafting I have come across in other MMO's. Vendors are upgraded by donating excess items which in turn levels them up enabling them to assist you in crafting higher spec'ed items as their portfolio of wares grows. There is also a welcome Omega system addition which is varied enough for end-game level 60 characters. Raids and exclusive end game content that was sorely lacking from the original launch is now also available which allows for ten superheroes to band together to take out the supreme evil in the form of the Norse fire giant Surtur. With more content to be offered in the not so far off future, Marvel Heroes 2015 is poised to enjoy a healthy longevity.

Conclusion

There are still some slight ♥♥♥♥les though. Skill trees are a bit bland to be honest as there appears to be a lot of repetition of skills across many of the heroes and PVP is still a bit of hit and miss with equipment and gear not visually distinct enough thereby having no impact on your characters appearance whatsoever. Although at the current rate that Gazillion entertainment is spicing things up I imagine it will be just a matter of time before these issues are addressed. Visually and aurally the game looks and sounds great and Marvel Heroes 2015 is just as dynamic and fluid as any of the big hitters in this crowded field. If you enjoy clicking, looting, fast paced action all set within the Marvel universe I can highly recommend you give the game a go - you won't be disappointed.

I will start by repeating the title of the game, Marvel heroes, which is the way to go to start off. I have a over a 1000 hours in this game currently, about 3 hours a day. I try not to miss a day, due to the fact, I have been trying to mod games to something close to this for years. This is the game I waitied essentially my whole gaming life. It combines the Marvel Universe that I grew up with and have injected into alot of the entertainments of life, (most Marvel fans get this). Then the games adds elements of more famous ARPG's to entice the skilled players from that genre into the game. But it has something for everyone, it's basic premise of gameplay is easy to learn for anyone and the skill and power trees, you create make it feel like you control the powers and overall destination of your hero's final feel. Combine this with an incredible, community, developers that listen to your input on the game at the Official Marvel Heroes Forums. The game is ever changing, like the next comic book issue some wait for, the anticipation is even more fun, because you actually play your favorite Marvel Heroes. The game is fun, free and ever-changing and if you are a true believer and your PC will run it, Then I have to say... Well, what are you waiting for hero?

I highly reccomend this game. The computer I have isn't great. Just a Toshiba laptop. It runs ok. Nothing special. If you like Marvel, you need this game. I play the game mostly because I am a Marvel fan. It has almost any hero you can think up, and even some villians. The characters can get a little pricy at times, but they can all be bought with in-game money.

Fan of the Diablo series? Fan of Marvel Comics? If you're both, then this game is for you. If you love Marvel but haven't played Diablo or any similar games (Torchlight, Titan Quest, etc), then you'll probably find a lot of good stuff in here too.

Free to play action-rpg, with many, many different characters to play. Your first character is free, you can buy any other characters with real money, as well as their costumes (which there are a LOT). But if you're not into spending money, you can collect items (Eternity Splinters) and purchase characters with thouse, either as a Random Hero Box where you might get a character you already have but costs the least amount of splinters, or you can get the character directly.

You can easily play the game for a long time without spending a dollar. I've spend 10 bucks across 150 hours of gameplay, and I have 7 characters.

The game is constantly being updated/patched, and new characters/costumes/items are being added all the time. A character you have might not be fun to play, but down the line it might get reviewed and be fun as hell afterwards.

Max character level is 60, and every character you get to 60 gives you an EXP boost across all other characters you have. And you'll generally get enough splinters for a random hero by the time you get one character to 60, so you'll have a chance to start working on a new one immediately. Or you can join a Supergroup (Clan/Guild), do raids, farm items, make your level 60 a total badass.

So yeah, if you're looking for a fun as hall ARPG, this is a great game. It's not perfect, but it's much better than it was beck when it originally came out, before the MH2015 rebranding. So give it a shot, blow up dudes with your mind powers or laser eyes, or just punch them with your rock fists.

Despite the urgings of what seems to be a great many of the other reviews here I've quite enjoyed Marvel Heroes. It's gameplay is fun, lots of flashy effects, high damage numbers, having to dodge and kite and most of the heroes have their own interesting little gimmick / mechanics. The atmosphere is awesome, bringing the marvel universe together in a convenient diablo-like world with 'acts' represented as chapters and all the big bads you could want from Shocker to Doctor Doom. The loot, rather important in an ARPG is done in a way that rewards players for time spent, with small thnigs like relics that drop atleast once every 3-5min that stack upto 1000, giving you slow progression to artifacts and uniques that are boss-only and are invaluably important to getting your character to late-game viability.

Lategame in Marvel Heroes is basically an externsion of the story mode with easy/medium/hard/intense/oh god difficulties for players to work their way through - from fighting bosses on 'easy' in Green terminals, to Cosmic terminals where Doctor Doom will show you the meaning behind his name, Holo-Sim waves defending virtual civillians, or defending Xavier Schools students from invaders in X-Defense - to now even being able to raid - Marvel Heroes has most players needs covered. I think the later game still has potential to be worked on, and imporved - but as it stands I do enjoy it.

It IS F2P, anything you can get in the store is either - avaialable pretty easily, or purely cosmetic - such as costumes. The only exception being Stash Tabs - which you will not need until you're entering the lategame stage of Marvel Heroes, and by that time you've spent towards 30-40hours on the game, and I'd say that's about fair. Every F2P ARPG at this point in time charges extra for additional stash tabs - I don't think it should be this way but I do think it's one of those things that won't be going away so it's kind of pointless to argue about it.

Updates - Holy hell, the updates. When I first played this game at launch it was a horrible mess, and hardly worth 20minutes of my time, coming back to it later I fell in love! Everyone week or so a new event comes around, or a new rebalance, new content, or another Hero for everyone to sink their creative teeth into - and that's one of the best parts about Marvel Heroes to me, the constant Developer discussions, interaction, compromise and updates that make the game a delight to keep playing.

All in all I think Marvel Heroes is currently one of the best ARPG's on the market in my opinion, That said everything boils down to ones preference, as such I recommend you try it, rather than read reviews! It's free, if you don't like it, delete and complain about it over VOIP for 20minutes and move on - that's how we gauge F2P's now-a-days anyhow :D

Similar to: Diablo 2 and 3, Torchlight 1 and 2, Titan Quest, Sacred

Feels like: X-men Legends, Marvel Ultimate Alliance

How free to play is it?: 1 free hero from a limited list, all heroes can be purchased with in game currency if you're willing to grind. The only thing that is impossible to get for free is S.T.A.S.H. which is bank space. You'll want some, trust me.

Pros: A ton of heroes for the fans, with more being added every month or two. Weekly events to boost leveling, access special loot, and sometimes even gear out a hero in a day. A good story mode the first time you go through it, raiding for organized groups, a few modes for random groups, and lots of solo content. The developers seem to be huge fans and always want to add more.

Cons: Bugs, every fix seems to break something else. The game seems to have issues with certain hardware configurations regardless of how powerful the system is.

Final thoughts: If you're a fan of Marvel, or Diablo style games you'll probably love this one. Totally free to try, so why not see what you think and how well it plays on your system.

Some of you probably saw TotalBiscuits review of this game(a.k.a WTF is Marvel Heroes). In the review, you can probably tell that he thought the game was terrible. But you have to check the date it came out, June 15th 2013. 2013! A year ago when the game was first released. A game can change TotalBiscuit, and im about to show everyone how it did change.


So lets start off with the beginning and storyline. Once you make an account for this game, you automatically get to choose a hero from the starter hero list(11 starter heroes to be exact, including Human Torch, Rocket Raccoon, Storm, Thing, Hawkeye, Captain America, Colossus, and i cant remember the others). Once you pick a hero you automatically get a starting cutscene sort of explaining the main story line, where Dr. Doom has stolen the Cosmic Cube. In this cutscene, Uatu and Doom fight in order gain control of the Cosmic Cube. I bet you can guess who wins, but no spoilers!

After the beginning cutscene you are traveled to Queens, where a current bank heist is going down. Fight in the streets to the bank to stop the heist. Once you have defeated the badies in the bank and saved all the civilians, you go over to the vault where (surprise!) Black Cat pays a visit. This is your first boss. Defeat her, and go to the front to speak with Sergeant Acedillo to travel to the prologue stark tower. In order to keep the review kinda short, lets just wrap up the story line here and have it for you to do the rest. Also, when you travel to Stark Tower, speak to Jocasta. She'll give you a box that if you right click on it gives you some shiny items called Eternity Splinters!(Which, you may or may not have picked up on your first mission)

Now you may be asking yourself, what are these "Eternity Splinters" anyway? Well, you couldve just looked at the item description in your inventory, but if you didnt, ill explain them to you. These items are the way you get special items from Adam Warlock, located in each hub. Through Eternity Splinters, you can get new heroes! If you save up 175 of them, you can get your first random hero box! Right click on this item in order to open it, and youll get a shiny hero token which(if its not the same hero you already have), you can write click on to add that hero to your roster! Also from Adam Warlock there are Team Up tokens, which is a companion system which you can learn about from the forums or something else.

Once you are completed the story line, you probably will be level 30, or almost atleast. That means your halfway through the leveling system! The max level cap is lvl 60, but you get a really cool power for your hero at lvl 52 called an ultimate power!
Now, in order to level, there a ton of things you can do! Terminals, Shared Quests, XDefense, SHIELD Holosim, Legendary Quests, and much more!

Now, this reviews gone on long enough. Notice i didnt really include anything bad about this game, and thats because i cant really think of any! The games just getting better and better, with more stuff to come!. All id have to say is that, surprisingly, this game takes a good graphics card in order to run it. Also, if your a non marvel fan, this game isnt probably for you. But if you enjoy marvel, diablo like clones(because realize-the maker of diablo 1 and 2 helped make this game), this is definatly a game to try out!

Marvel Heroes 2015 is an action role playing game in the vain of something like Diablo set in the marvel universe. That's simply the best way to describe it without going overboard. You take your cursor point it at things, kill enemies, collect loot, and so forth until your character is max level and you eventually get better and better equipment to put on your character as time goes on. This game is a loot driven game plain and simple. You like seeing progression on your character and do it over and over on repeat again and again? Then this is the game for you. If you've never been a person who has been into clicking and collecting loot then there really isn't anything here for you. Sure this game has the Marvel license attached to it, one of the largest franchises in the world but if you don't like the gameplay then seriously there really isn't much here for you. Even less here for you if you don't like the Marvel license.

For you see that Marvel license is exactly where this game makes it's bread and butter. When it comes to free to play games the game has to attract their audience in two ways that are pretty much valuable to us as gamers, TIME AND MONEY. You spend the money on the heroes & costumes you thought are cool within the Marvel univese, you eventually spend your time leveling up that character you spent your money on, rinse and repeat. For the most part that's what is considered fun.

But here's the real kicker with this game, let's say you didn't spend a dime on it. Would this game hold up? Would you still be having fun?

The short answer: heck yeah!

Gazillion Entertainment, the developers of Marvel Heroes 2015 has done something quite remarkable that I've only seen f2p developers like valve do. They have made a polished and refined free-to-play game that if you seriously wanted to you could play this game completely free and still be able in a small percentage of a way get everything in the game free as long as you are into the game for the long haul. You want that spider-man hero for $13.50 but don't have the money to buy him? Well just use the starting hero you got free (they actually have quite a good selection of starter heroes from when I started out) and earn 600 eternity splinters (currency drops) and you can have him. You want a certain costume but don't have the money for the exceedingly priced costumes to buy one (cosmetic costumes for $15.00 is seriously way too expensive) well then either spend a hefty amount of time playing and possibly get a costume as a drop, prestige and possibly earn enough costumes to recipe the costume you may have wanted. The numerous ways in which you can gain value for something in the game is equivalent to the amount of time put into it and a whole lot of luck.

We spoke of the business model but how is the actual game? Each character in the game can fit into categories usually used for these types of action role-playing games. You got your melee tank characters (ex. Hulk, Thing) you got your ranged characters (Hawkeye, Cyclops) you have your character who excel in dps, you have characters who excel in aoe. Each character in the game intertwines between these certain categories and while you do see some similarities, each character never feels exactly the same. There is a wide variety to this game that will make each character you play as that much different with each playthrough.

This game is truly remarkable and my hat is off to the developers and community for this game who have shown a way of making a game better than what it was a year ago. When I played the beta and release a year ago, I played and enjoyed the main campaign but there was never really anything there to really suck me into that cycle of time and money. I gave it a few months off and was quite surprised how addicting the game has become.

Marvel Heroes 2015 is befitting of it's new game title and hopefully a second chance on making an impression on players.

Honestly, this game is worth a shot. If you've even showed the mildest of interest in the action RPG genre, try it. I've been playing the game off and on since the beta launched and seeing how far this game has come since then is astounding. Definitely worth a download.

Intro
This will be my first 'review' I will be writing for a game, so if you have any feedback for me, I am happy to hear you out! After writing this I do actually believe it's more of an introduction to Marvel Heroes with my own opinion mixed together. Anyhow... Recently Marvel Heroes re-released as Marvel Heroes 2015. Gazillion had a rough start but they really turned the game around in to something great. There are weekly updates, events and patches to keep everyone busy. There are heroes and some villians to play in MH2015 but I will just talk about heroes (easier to read).

Gameplay
You get to choose one of the 11 starters, which are; Captain America, Black Panther, Punisher, Black Widow, Luke Cage, Human Torch, Colossus, Storm, Hawkeye, Rocket Racoon & Daredevil. After choosing one, the journey begins. First you will start with the storyline, which is set up in chapters. In total there are nine chapters located all throughout the Marvel universe. After gaining a certain level, more game modes will open up to you, giving a lot of different options to level. Gameplaywise, Marvel Heroes is an ARPG, similar to Diablo 2. Furthermore, It's loot heaven. Really, I have never seen this much loot. Like most ARPG's, it can be grindy, expecially if you don't like the game (duh) or hero. The game is set up as a serious time sink. At the moment, you have around 35(?) heroes and villians available. These can all be leveled to 60. If you enjoy a hero that much, there is the option to prestige him/her, 5 times. The prestige system basically means starting over having a different coloured name and the ability to buy a special pet (pets are only for showing off). If you still don't have enough from playing your favorite character, Gazillion recently added to option to cosmic prestige your character. This takes 25 times the normal leveling rate. Talk about a major time investment right? The game has three difficulty settings. Normal, heroic and superheroic. While leveling you will unlock these modes automatically. In my opinion, the game is not hard (except for some endbosses which are rediciously difficult) and very forgivable. This is not everyone's cup of tea, but I like it because I don't have all the time in the world so it always feels like I am progressing.

Endgame
When you're level 60, there are various different ways to gain the best loot possible. To be honest, I haven't done a lot of endgame yet. I do have 3 level 60 heroes at them moment, but I prefer leveling over endgame. Gazillion added raids not too long ago but I have yet to try them out. I will update this section as soon as possible!

Business Model
The game is F2P, but it may be the fairest I've ever encountered. So far, I've only spend €4,- on some extra storage and a hero. I will spend more soon (those packs are sooo tempting!) but that's because Gazillion deserves my money, not because I need to. I do think some cash shop items are overpriced when they're not in discount.

Eternity Splinters
This is the in-game currency. You see, most of the stuff in the game is obtainable through the in-game currency called Eternity Splinters (ES). These ES drop on an invisible timer. You just play and they randomly drop from anything giving XP. From ES you can buy heroes, team-ups or anything else you'd like. The only thing which is not obtainable through ES are storage space and fortune cards. It's a neat system and you get some extra ES on your first playthrough to help you on your way.

Graphics
On the highest settings, the game looks great. The newer heroes/areas all have detail and you can see Gazillion puts a lot of care in designing their game and characters. Some of the older areas and heroes however, look a little bit bland. They are working on this by updating the older heroes. I haven't heard any plans on updating some of the older areas. Another thing is the performance. After playing for a while, the game's performance gets worse. This is a known problem for players and most think this is a memory leak. Over the months I've played, it already got better, but this is still an issue.

Longetivity
THERE. IS. SO. MUCH. TO. DO. Seriously, the possibilities are endless. There are so many heroes that you can choose from. Also I have the feeling the game is gaining momentum because of the re-release and the ever growing popularity of Marvel. They connect their game to the Marvel movie releases with great updates (latest example Guardians of the Galaxy).

Summary
Marvel Heroes 2015 is an endless timesink. And a very very very fun one at that. So far I've spend a fair amount of time in the game. I prefer leveling over endgame, so I will have to spend some more time on that part. I would definitely recommend this game to anyone who is in to Marvel (or anyone in to comics in general). Gazillion really nailed the feeling of being your favorite hero (or villian). The game does tend to get grindy at times. Also, this is not mentioned before, but the community is great. The official forums are very active and in game there's always someone willing to help.

Tips for new players
  • Don't sell the loot you don't need, but donate the stuff you don't need/use to the crafter. By donating you level him up giving you nice options later on.
  • When buying heroes with Eternity Splinters, you can also buy a random hero box. This box is 175 splinters whereas the heroes are 200/400/600. This box will give you a random hero so if you're not too picky on which hero to play, this is a great option. There is a chance that you receive the same hero you already have, in which case you will get an ultimate token.
