Reviews

“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.”

Do you like Diablo/Torchlight/Path of Exile? If you do then check this game out. The game is F2P and lets you pick one of nine starter heroes that you can level to 60. Features story campaign, various replayable boss instance "terminals", 10 player co-op endless mob/boss wave zone (Midtown), 5-player survival mode (X-Defense), 5v5 PvP (Dota style mode), with more maps and modes coming in the near future. There are currently over 30 heroes and over 200 costumes with new ones added every month.

Straight Talk: Game is fully F2P, no gated content (time or money). You have extremely limited storage space which means at some point you will buy more using real money. Heroes cost 200/400/600 "splinters" which drop one every 6-10 minutes, which gets you around 10-12 per hour of steady play. Heroes can cost $2 up to $15 apiece and costumes can range up to $20 for "enhanced" versions (addition animations/voice work). You CAN get costumes to drop in-game, but the drop rate is ridiculously rare (I have none in 700 hours). Best bet for new players is if there is a specifc hero and costume you want to play, either pick up a bundle on the website or in-game store (combo would probably cost around $20).

The developers are extremely dedicated to this game and regularly interact with the community via the forums and live streams. Player feedback is used often in design decisions, and the game is patched weekly. One new hero is added per month (sometimes surprise heroes are added in between, such as Taskmaster and Loki) and other game content is rapidly being added or revamped.

I've been playing the game since its release, I must admit the only thing that hooked me was the Marvel theme as I was discovering the game, that was clearly a beta, developers tried to cover it up with some lies, but the game was released long before It could even be called a game. But that's an old story.

Now they've renamed the game as "Marvel Heroes 2015" in a clear attempt to get rid of the vast negative reviews they once had, and deserved. The game is now really far from how it was in the begining. This is both good and bad.

Good:
- The game improved in playability; heroes are getting "reviewed" so they are as powerful as any other, and addapt to a certain type of standarized power trees; this does not mean they all have the same powers, but they all receive ultimates at the same levels, and such.

- The graphics got improved by a huge margin, they look quite good if your computer can handle them. They very customizable as well.

- Content: Some new game modes have been added, terminals, one-shot stories, X-Defense, even raid content. This is already enough to spend quite some hours a day of grind, if that's what suits you.

- Heroes: Your favorite Marvel Heroes get introduced in the game, at a rate of 1 every month, with some surprise heroes being released from time to time.

- Community: People is usually nice, both in the forums and in the game. There might be some minor trolling or the occasional jerk, but it's pretty much ok all the time.

Bad:
- F2P model: The game flow and direction is completely managed by the marketing department and the F2P model. Their community managers do a great job censoring any criticism on their brand, as well as the hyped community does bashing almost everyone whose sight goes beyond the fanatism. Drop rates that allow you to get new Heroes/costumes get constantly nerfed (and you're never told about it in change logs). This means the following, you could get every hero from the game just by getting ES, items that drop from every mob. Every hero costs 200 ES, 400 ES, or 600 ES, depending directly on the decisions by this marketing department. Community managers have speculated with they costing that much depending on the "work" they required to be made, or the new "technology" or whatever they added to the game. If they consider us that naive to believe such bs, that's too bad.

Anyway, even if in the begining heroes could drop from any mob (by the time I got a hero to level 30, I had a drop), then this was eliminated and substituted by the ES system, wich allowed you to get 200 ES every 26-27 hours of gameplay. Now they've lowered it to 33-34. That quite some time playing, for just a hero, oh, and remember they're adding them at a faster rate of 1+ a month, so, good luck getting all the heroes, just by playing.

Costumes dropped as well from mobs as rare drops. These drops rate got lowered a lot. I mean, a freaking huge lot. Look at my time played, and notice I've got a whole lot of ONE costume drop. You'd most likely win the lotery that getting that costume you want from a drop.

- Transparency: This company is anything but transparent to me. They do talk and interact a lot with the community, but that's just strategy. Every single path notes they release doesn't contain everything that has changed. They change some drop rates, you never know about it until you start missing those drops.

They also add a lot of events in form of special holiday drops, login gifts, etc. But something always slips through them, and somehow if that flaw affects them, it will be fixed/removed asap, but if it affects you, you'll have to endure it for weeks, or months. Difficulty in the fix does not matter here.

- Community: I already said they're usually nice. Now I'm heading at a different direction; this is an mmo-rpg. If you played Diablo 2, this is like mixing Diablo 2, Marvel, and the possibility of 1000 people being at the same spot you are. Still, all the content, except for raids, all of it, can be completed solo. And will be completed solo. You might end up in a party to get some of the stuff done faster, and then you'll quietly leave to another zone. Interaction is minimal while playing. This being said, most of the time, having so much people around is more of a flaw than a perk. If I want to kill some guys that spawn at a point, and there's 15 guys camping it, then, that's frustrating. This happens more than anyone is willing to accept. There are supergroups (guilds), 95% of them are a bunch of guys randomly invited into the same guild, with no will to do anything together whatsoever other than having some name above your head. These also tend to dissapear with time, usually when the leader stops playing and the invites stop.

- Graphics: They improved but they also require a big PC to handle them. Even with a powerful one, you'll end up seing so much effects that sometimes you won't know what the hell is going on.

- Balance: Whenever you head on to the forums and read an announcement on a hero being put on the level of any other, this means they're bot gonna get hit hard. One's gonna be nerfed, the other is gonna be screwed. Anytime you read 52 review, keep this in mind. Adjust = nerf. Improve = possible nerf. Nerf = don't get close to that.

I'm already getting bored of this, so I'll sum up. The game might be fun for some time, but it requires an awful lot of time to get anything, or you could pay for it, big $$$. Even though I kind of enjoyed it sometimes, it's really hard to hook up friends on this. I've tried with 10+ friends, they all despised it.

I'd give this a 60/100, Marvel is cool, developers in F2P models are not.

Do you enjoy the loot fest of Diablo? Do you wish Torchlight 2 had a constant community to interact with ingame? Do you enjoy Path of Exile, but sometimes want an easier and less hardcore experience? Then Marvel Heroes might be your go to game this summer!
Don't let reviewers shy you away from the game because a lot of its problems from last June have been fixed (mostly). The game does still have its problems and shortcomings. As of writing this they still do not have a proper trade menu, which every MMO ever has gotten right if they were made in the past decade.
Characters are imbalanced but a lot of the free starter characters offer fun diverse playstyles. After completing story mode you'll be offered the ability to get another free one. Heroes are no longer random drops, but rather awarded to you for playing long periods of time. The only real thing that only money can buy is storage space.
Yes this game is not as great as Dota2 or Path of Exile at the Free2Play Model, but it isn't the worst anymore. All heroes have been marked down since the original release and are (for the most part) priced fairly for the amount of time a person invests in the hero. There's also a server called Test Center that allows you to test out a character at the max level, to see if you'll enjoy the character before ever buying them. Something that was a major problem at the game's initial release.
Honestly the game has come a long way since last June. However the lack of a trade system, quickly running into inventory management, no autosort option for items, weird chat UI, and lack of partying incentive during the grind from 1 to 60... really holds the game back from being a major recommendation. However if you're a fan and want to try a new Diablo style lootfest, Marvel Heroes might be worth your time.

Definitely recommended for all Marvel fans out there, and it's FREE! If that doesn't convince you to try it already then I don't know what will.

Heard a lot of criticism and bad reputation about the game and that got confirmed through the fact that I played it a couple of days after it first launched into Open Beta. Im not lying when I say, the game was terrible back then. It was hard to call it a 'F2P Game'. But it did a 180° rotation since then, the F2P model changed alot and the way and the implementation of several characters or costumes etc. that the players suggest via the game forum is awesome. Gaz Entertainment interacts so nicely with the community, which is the only explanation why the game turned into such a good game in less than a year. Every gaming website that reviewed Marvel heroes like a year ago should 're-visit' it immediately. The meta score of 58 doesn't fit to it in any way.
