Great MMO with a 5 Star hero creator, if you played City Of Heroes and don't to wait for Titans, get this, it runs the same, has similar graphics, and an even BETTER hero creator. It also lets you team up with your friends, I reccomend this to anyone.

Champions Online is the best Hero MMO out... for the moment. With City of Titans coming out soon it may have some compition. But for now its top of the heep.

Champions Online is a great game for burning time. The character creators I a very good place to make a character to play or just to mess around in creating costumes. The story is a bit lacking. Once you complete the opening missions... the game is pretty much left up to the player to follow whatever story they have availible in the mission lines and comics series. Through the game though... there are reminders that Dr. Destroyer, the "Main Villain" i possibly lurking somewhere in the shadows waiting to return. Sadly the litle teaser seems to be just that... a tease. Beyond some daily event and a dungeon the suggest Dr. D MIGHT POSSIBLY be out there, that is basically all you get.

The game has been out for a good long while, with updates and add ons. The devs do a great job up keeping in contact with the players and there is a decent amount of content for free players. You get 2-3 free character slots ( i believe you have to play for a bit to get ther third) Every so often players are given the option to try out one of the many pay to play classes for a short time.

Among the many things you can do in the game Champions has the unique option of paying to make a Freeform character. This allows you to make the character with the powers and stats you want from the ground up. I you want a kid that uses fire spell has duel pistols and a giant hammer... you got it. Sadly though the character you create will most likly be off balance unless you pick specific powers to corispond with one another so there is still a limit to your creation. On the other end though you can basically make a character that is so powerful you can all but solo the entire game. A good free form build basiacally kills the need for player interaction as you can survive battles with super villains on your own. ANd there is NO END GAME. None. Once you reach a certain level, all thee content of the game will be availible. At that point you are only leveling up to get your last level power... whcih you really don't need. I was so happy to get my sniper rifle once i got max level... and only a few short mnutes later I realized I was simply playing the game as I had about 5 levels before.

Finally this game seriously lacks in team work. There is almost no need for it and in areas where there is a need for it, the game has done such a bad job of preparing the players for this you don't see player using the skills they have as is needed. Healing and tanking are very poor as tanks almost always lose aggro to healers and damage dealers. Also healers tend to get killed rather quickly as the rest of the team will usually have their hand full trying to stay alive as the healer can no longer heal them.

The game is definitly fun to play, but it lacks a level of heart and soul that previous games had.

A great superhero MMO with high amount of customization for your hero. I did enjoy it a bit less once F2P was released but overall still a great game to check out.

This might have been the best game out there, like ever made...but I will never know. Every time i tried to boot it up I would get BSODed at around 13% of the ridic 5k mb patch. I tried looking for a solution online and everything was pointing to it actually being my computer even tho I can run every other game I have ever tried to play and it works just fine. Hell even DCUO runs perfect on almost top settings, which im assuming is similar to this game, seeing as ive never actually played this. So no sorry im not going to rummage around all my drivers because this game is picky about the company it keeps and kills the party whenever it sees something it doesnt get along with.

I would call it City of Heroes 2, but that's a little generous. There are some definite bugs; the game doesn't like me alt-tabbing to go talk to friends on skype sometimes, and the character creation is bugged as all ♥♥♥♥ due to all the paid-for content hiding all the free content for some reason, AND THEY GOT RID OF THE RAGDOLLS THAT BUGGED AND GLITCHED OUT HILARIOUSLY IN CoH, but I digress. Great game, if you liked CoH, play this, right now.

♥♥♥♥ing terrible game.

I spent about an hour working on an epic character and also noticing all the cool items you must pay for in order to get. I was angry they would make me pay for such a cool item but I was also furious when I saved my character then tried to start the game and it said character creation failes. I said "Ok thats fine at least I saved my character before I did" I go back and see that my costume is gone....basically I can't even get passed character creation! Do not get it you will blow your brains out once your finished with this game.

it's highly frustrating to play alone, which, if you make a new account like I did, you'll have to do a lot as they've disabled zone chat and whisper for new accounts with no given time of which the restriction lasts, costume and character customization is high limited, and the same goes for powers, I'm sure this game could have been good, but I'm assuming the corperate leeches killed any chance of that, avoid this game.
