    A little better then Heroes, but still no depth

    This is an improvement over City of Heroes. However, its still lacking depth and variety in the game. Their is a TON of variety in the costumes and powers, but the quests feel the same. Although the added cutcenes and so... Read Full Review

    The screens and the promise were better than the game. Why am I fighting gang bangers as a villain?

    I loved City of Heroes when it came out, and when I heard about City of Villains I just couldn't wait! I love to play the bad guy, but it really didn't feel like I was. In fact, it felt like the exact opposite. Why is my... Read Full Review

    Super-evil mastermind fun

    City of Villains is a solid MMORPG. With a faily large playerbase, so it won't feel like an empty world like many MMORPG's suffer these times of World of WarCraft. To the most important, gameplay. The CoV gameplay is ... Read Full Review

    Being evil isn't really so bad, except maybe for the lag.

    Admit it. You want to be naughty. You want to blow stuff up. You want to steal stuff. You want to rule the world. But you don't want to be considered a freak. That's okay because City of Villians lets you interact with ... Read Full Review

    My return to the MMORPG world is a pleasantly evil one.

    I'll say this outright: I've not dabbled too much in the world of MMO gaming. My first experience was Phantasy Star Online on Sega's ill-fated Dreamcast. I loved that game, made a few friends too. Felt like a thrivin... Read Full Review

    Great game design-but still too buggy

    I've played City of Heroes for about a year and really like it. I was eagerly awaiting City of Villains, but so far I've been quite disappointed with it. I like the design of the game, but two months after its release ... Read Full Review

    Too easy and becomes very boring. Maybe something for the kids or real comic fans.

    What can I say? First it's fun (if you take the right contact or you do a lot of snake missions) but if you play this game a lot, it becomes boring. Why? Well it only have missions and some mobs walking around in the cit... Read Full Review
