Currently, the only thing even remotely like the now defunct City of Heroes and City of Villains (aka CoX).

and it doesn't cost you a dime.

One of the few Super Hero based MMOs out there that's honestly super enertaining and fun! Champions Online has huge open world maps, and a Character Creater on par with Skyrim's. Completely Free to Play, it offers hours upon hours of amazing gameplay without you ever having to give a cent. Everything that can be bought is completely optional, not required, but still will ehancing your gameplay experience.
Experience life as a super here to the fullest here, with vehicles, secret hideouts, team ups, and all sorts of amazing stuff.
This is definatly a game worth playing.

You know, this game has one defining charecteristic. Just one. But god dang it, that one thing was so huge that it made this game a joy to play for anyone with an ounce of imagination and creativity.

Charecter customisation.

I mean, you want to be a robotic samurai werewolf? thats doable.

You want to be an alien necromancer that also has hairy hands? I've seen more then a few.

You want to be a duke nukem knock off named retro-man? I've met that guy. Even acted like Duke.

This game was narvana for a role player or... just anyone looking for a game with a bunch of crazy looking super heros. That is the only unique thing about it... but OOOOOH is it such a saveing grace.

But guess what? People done goofed. Due to being flooded with new accounts, charecter creation has been slammed down on for new players, locking out a vast majority of options untill you've spent some time on the game.

Now let me make it clear right here, I get it. I ♥♥♥♥ing get it. It's not good that all these new accounts have been made exclusivly to make more charecters for free. That's not good. It's robbing the company of money. I get it. It's a serious problem that needs to be adressed.

(channles inner nostalgia critic)

BUT GOD ♥♥♥♥ING DAMMIT. YOU DON'T HAMSTRING YOUR PRODUCT'S ONE SAVEING GRACE TO DO THAT. YOU DON'T CUT YOURSELF DOWN LIKE THAT FOR ANY SITUATION. THAT MAKES NO SEEEEEEENCE! *pant, pant*

I understand that it's only temporary. I get that the lock clears up when you finnish the tutorial, but oh my god this was such a dumb move! The first 10 minuets of gameplay is when you need to hook your player. if you havent done that, there expectations will plummit and most will abandon the game altogether. Gameplay dosent start when you first enter the world eather, it starts the second you log in. that includes charecter generation.

Again, I get it. This massive flooding of accounts to bypass the 2 charecter slot limmet is unacceptable. But there's better ways around this problem. Give players a chance to earn charecter slots. give them more then 2 to start out with. Find a better way! Please! Thats really my one issue here! If it wasent here, I would give this game all the praise in the world for being a ♥♥♥♥ing RPer's paradise!

You know. this is the first negitive review I've ever made, and it's actualy on a game I have some fond memorys of. This is honestly very sad to me.

I'll be fair though... If your willing to put in the time to slog through the first half hour of the game with an unispired charecter, this game can wind up being something really cool.

Do you like massive customization? are you always coming up with characters, and stories in your head? or maybe you like superheroes, and think it could be cool to create your own, then take on the bad guys?

if so, give this game a shot. I've been playing around 3 years so far, always had a blast. although the game's seen some neglect lately by the developers, theres a new dev team on the job now, and they seem to be on the ball.

also, subscribers can not only completely customize how their hero looks, they dont need to choose a class either. instead it's build your own hero using any powers and skills you please. sound good? then try it. because I at least think its awesome.
