What Gamespot Users have to say about Champions Online

  • User Rating 9.5

    I played the open beta and the head start. Impressed by the game potential, and how much is delivered right of the bat.

    Rated on September 01, 2009 by Ludovicf

    The beta had its problems, from poor framerates to buggy missions. The devs have done an excellent work fixing most of these issue for launch. Champion Online is everything a City of Heroes/Vilain fan...

    Day 20, Pay-For-Beta

    Rated on September 20, 2009 by rrahl

    Day 1, it is just simply not fun. Day 4, respecs, more fun in the 20s Day 20, bugs, lack of content, broken content. Is this the focus? Paying to beta test the game is not worth my money. 3 for l...

    Loved it before release, but frustrating now and developers seem clueless.

    Rated on September 09, 2009 by gavin

    Update: Pretty much giving up on the game now unless the developers suddenly seem to get a clue. Rated the game 8.5 at release but the nerf-patch led to endless frustration and the unresponsive develo...

    Just an uninspired game with no substance

    Rated on September 02, 2009 by Elikal

    The only thing that might compel people to try this is the fact we don't have so many Superhero MMOs and we had so many bad MMO releases so people are desperate to try new things. The truth is, CO ...

    My first review is going to be a game that was looked forward too, anticipated, and ultimately not nearly as appetizing.

    Rated on September 02, 2009 by IkedaTeramusa

    All, This is my first review and I felt the need to review this in particular because of what I had seen during my time in beta and founders weekend. If you are of the TOO LONG DID NOT READ crowd,...

    An okay game during beta, but the day 1 nerfs make the game totally unfun, play something else for the next few months

    Rated on September 03, 2009 by vorkosigan97

    Champions Online is presently a mediocre action MMO. It has potential to be a lot of fun, but limited content and a heavy hand with the nerfbat have spoiled the launch. Power customization is diff...

    A very fun game. Fast-paced action, great graphics and customization.

    Rated on May 10, 2010 by mavyn

    I give this game a generous 9 out of 10. Cryptic needs to do some balancing still, and expand PvP, improve the social and grouping UI. But the pieces are in place for this to take off. Take some of...

    A fun that grows on you.

    Rated on September 03, 2009 by ehosteda

    As I do with most games that I purchase, I spent time researching this game before I bought it. I was on its forums, other websites, etc. However, after reading many mixed reviews, I decided to take t...

    Being appalled by the whiners, I decided to write a review myself to give the full and detailed story.

    Rated on September 03, 2009 by Jaxith

    I've been playing Champions Online for awhile now, and I've really enjoyed my time thus far. Alot of people are rating the game poorly, and giving the day one nerf as the reason. These people are bl...

    Finally you can be the superheroe you've always envisioned

    Rated on September 03, 2009 by remydraven

    Champions Online is an amazing product. From the box itself you can feel this game is going to be special. The character creation is amazing. You can create the superheroe you've always envisioned,...
