This game stinks. I've given it numerous chances through various stages of the closed beta, and it's just bad. The combat is horrendously bland, the leveling is really slow, and the quests are all boring. It's easily the worst Diablo clone game out there, which is sad because I thought it had a lot of promise.

I agree completely. I wanted this game to be good, but it is flat out boring.

I love how people write off a game in beta. The game is still undergoing many changes before launch which is good and scary at the same time. I think it is harsh to call the game the worst diablo clone when it isn't even officially launched. I had a lot of fun leveling a character to 34 and enjoy the look and feel of the game. This is all pre huge end game patch that hit last week. Also it is free to play. I would say good or bad reviews, try it at launch and see how you feel about it. I love marvel and diablo so it is perfect for me. I bought a Cyclops starter pack and am very excited to play him. Sadly he is pretty broken right now but is getting a huge rework.

I hope they change some of the annoyances like only getting to use one of the five starter characters (most of the starting five kind of suck as well). It's F2P so you can make multiple accounts if you really wanted to so it is kind of dumb that they were not letting you delete a character to try the others and forcing you to make multiple accounts.

I don't think this game is that bad. Sure, it's not great, but it's not shit either. There are a couple control nuances that I really think they should change, but overall it's fine.

While it still is in beta, Unicorn, I doubt it's going to change much, it releases in a couple weeks. I'm pretty sure what we have now is going to be extremely close to what will release.

I played it a good amount but didn't get too far because I don't like to invest a lot of time in a game where all my progress will be wiped. I'll wait until the official launch to really delve deep into it. I did try out every character though, the Punisher has been my favorite so far. Out of the starter characters I thought The Thing was the best. He can do great damage and barely takes any damage.

Its a few weeks before launch, the game isn't going to change that much. I'm so tired of the stupid "ITZ IN BETA DOOD" argument. Betas nowadays aren't what they once were. The combat has been bland since the game started, as have the quests. They aren't all of a sudden going to make both of those fun and interesting in two weeks.

The AI is terrible. I played as Rocket Raccoon for awhile. I literally only needed to learn one ability, my turret. Just place it down, let it tank EVERYTHING (as it cant be destroyed) then just sit there mindlessly auto-attacking everything.

The level design is awful. Seeing the same three things duplicated 900 times to make a level look populated gets old. Oh look, more barrels, piles of bricks, and dumpsters. Also, the maps are gigantic. You spend tons of time just wondering around aimlessly hoping for the minimap to update showing you that you're in the general area you need to be in. Running around a boring ass map for 30 minutes isn't fun.

Leveling takes ages. When you start, you should level a lot faster than when you hit level 20+. It's common sense. You let new players constantly unlock stuff and feel a sense of accomplishment. Not in Marvel Heroes. It takes an hour or two just to hit level five. This process isn't helped by the same cookie cutter enemies that you fight over and over and over. Grinding the same cruddy looking enemies at level one isn't a good sign.

The game looks pretty bland. Environments are the same objects duplicated over and over and characters look really flat. Everything just seems super low-res. Oh, and in the span of five or six months (how long I played the closed beta) they still couldn't figure out how to implement correct graphics options as well as resolution support for anyone with a monitor larger than 1080p.

So yeah, the game sucks. I've given it chance after chance after chance. I initially played it like six months ago and thought it sucked, but I gave them the benefit of the doubt. They still had time at that point. I re-installed and tried it again two or three weeks ago and literally NOTHING had changed. It was the same boring ass game. They now have two weeks until launch. They aren't all of a sudden going to make the game good in that time span. If you want a good dungeon crawler, go play Path of Exile, or hell, even Diablo 3. Both are way better games and a hell of a lot more entertaining than this pile of trash.

I only played for about 5 hours, but these were my main complaints. I'm a big fan of a lot of the heroes in it, but this game is not for me right now.

Just play Path of Exile if you want a F2P Diablo clone. That game is pretty damn good, and everything in the cash shop is cosmetic (except bag space, which you can still buy with in-game money).

Oh yeah, it's a perfect concept. Unfortunately they executed it terribly. I hope that DC MOBA coming out doesn't suck. That's another perfect marriage of two genres.

Deadpool was the most expensive character in the cash shop and all his extra attires were pretty pricey as well. Hope you bought the Deadpool starter pack or are looking to spend like $15 to unlock him.

I only played 1 game of that and it's kinda crappy. They only had the capturing the 5 points on the circular map mode active and I hate that mode. I didn't mess with my settings or read abilities, I just jumped right into a game, so that might be why I didn't like it much. I'm in the closed beta, so I'll try it out again sometime.

So they only had what League of Legends calls Dominion? That kinda blows as I hate that as well. Hopefully they add a standard 5v5 mode with three lanes, jungling, etc...

I've been putting some serious time into this game. Downloaded it for free, chose Hawkeye, and leveled him up to 26 before beating the game. So far I've unlocked Storm and Thing, which I received through quest rewards. I wish hero drops were more frequent, but I understand the pricing structure and think it is a great implementation of the free-to-play model.

 

I'll put another 10 hours or so into the game, but I don't know if it will have the teeth to hold me beyond that. Having a good time with it though.

I have been playing it for 8 hours and I do really enjoy it. Now I am a big Marvel fan, so that can add to me liking the game. Also the game is fucking FREE!!! I don't get why people complain about a free game.

 

You don't need to spend money but I had the beta for a while and bought in for Spider-Man when they were giving Cyclops & Jean Grey free (Not bad for $20). Also got $15 worth of in game money and 6 costumes.

 

I started with Hawkeye and got Daredevil as a drop after the first mission set. I think people are upset because they want all the characters and everything for free too... even though the game is free. The heroes are similar to the different characters in Diablo. Diablo III had I think 5 characters for $60. Now there are a few things I wish were better and I am sure more will be added over time. I havn't beat the main story yet either so the amount of play time can drop after that.

 

This is also not a MOBA but does have some PVP (I havn't touched it yet).

 

The loot is not cosmetic other than costumes. I actually got a special Spider-Man costume that I would not have bought but looks cool. With licensed games, they really want to maintain the look of the character so that you don't have Wolverine wearing a luchadoor mask or Thor with a pink shovel.

 

Some characters are worth more to purchase (based on popularity). Again you don't need to buy anything and I only bought into the game because of the special I had ($20 = 3 characters, 6 costumes, 1500 credit).

So does anyone know if you need to get through the prologue before you can acess the store or is their store just being hammered...?  I tried a few times yeterday, just a small sample size of game time, and it never would load anything...

 

Edit: And, wow, another day and another patch...

Because a game being free or not holds zero bearing over whether or not I like it. To me, as someone who has played tons of Diablo clones, this is easily the worst of the bunch. It being zero dollars doesn't automatically make it a good game. I'd rather pay $60 for a polished product that is fun and engaging than nothing for a game that is boring and mega repetitive (even more so than most games in this genre).

Not a bad free game. I played the beta and wasn't a fan, but playing through again as Storm (I refuse to pay that much real money for one character) with my friend who bought Wolverine .. it's not so bad. After all, it is free....

 

If costumes were only a fraction of the cost of actual characters, I might cave and buy a few of them, but the fact that they cost as much as -- if not MORE than -- other characters as a whole ... just plain ridiculous.

I got about an hour, hour and a half, in it now... I'm finding it to be pretty enjoyable. Two quick questions.

Does anyone know if the paid characters ever drop for free? (I got Scarlet Witch as a reward but she is one of the characters you can get for free.)

Second, is loot shared or is everything laying on the ground meant for me?

everything on the ground is meant for you, except maybe the health and mana orbs.

 

paid characters do drop but they are super duper uber rare drops. I have yet to see one in 13 hours of playtime, and I never got one in the beta.

 

If you (or anyone else) wants to group up sometime, let me know. I don't mind going back and doing the lower level stuff (granted, I am only lvl 14-15 as of posting).

 

Also, if anyone gets a Cyclops character drop and doesn't want him, please let me know! I don't know if they are tradeable, I'm sure we can come to some sort of agreement if they are. lol

I'm pretty sure I read character and costumes are bind on pickup.

 

I'm level 12 on Punisher and am having a good time.  It's not the best Diablo clone but imo, it's not the worst.  The fact that it's Marvel super heroes helps it for me.  I look forward to playing it more.

I'm pretty sure I read character and costumes are bind on pickup.

Yeah, the Scarlet Witch that I got for finishing the prologue was untradable...  and sold for 5 credits.  (I'm curious if its impossible to get duplicate characters and whatnot...  Seems awful punishing to not be able to trade them if they really are that rare.)

 

Anyhow, this morning I play with the Scarlet Witch (and played the prologue again) in the hopes that beating it would give me another hero... It didn't, which was sort of expected I guess. Though, I did restart the story to be sure...

 

Oh, sharing inventory without the use of a stash... was a bit of a shocker. Now that I know I guess I like it...

 

So after the prologue I went back to Hawkeye... but had to redo all of chapter one over again. (I had just beat Shocker.) Anyhow, I'm now just a bit past that. (Like the next teleport device.)

 

I'm up to a level 5 now... Nearly a level 6.

 

So, yeah, still really liking it... Though I'll be happy when I can play the game without dealing with a patch first...

 

Also, sort of hope they do a sale soon... The cheap ass in me just cannot buy a single character at their asking prices... (and surely not the costumes.)

I knew what it was going in, and dropped money to get Captain America because he is my boy and fave Marvel Character. I love the Ultimate Alliance games and this is basically a MMO extension of the action/RPG with a loot and crafting system to dump items off. It is free, it's simple fun with complex character builds, and it is a romp through the Marvel Universe. It gets better as you level with more varied enemies and event bosses. The store is ridonkulously overpriced IMO, but to get the one character i wanted and supporting their game for how much use I will get from it, makes it a good deal for me.
