It is no secret that Marvel Heroes has been out for a long time now, as a matter of fact they just celebrated their 3rd Birthday! But I feel like they don’t get enough credit for what they have done, so I wanted to give them a little pat on the back if you will and say thank you. Hopefully (if you are not already playing Marvel Heroes) I can get you to take a look at it and try it out for yourselves.
For those of you who don’t know what Marvel Heroes is all about, let me give you a quick run down. Have you ever played Diablo 2? If you never played it have you at least seen it in action? Know how it plays? Well Marvel Heroes is basically Diablo 2 with Marvel Heroes. “That’s a ripoff!” some would say, well when you have some of the creators of Diablo 2 be the one creating this game, then no, it is not a ripoff, it is pure magic! Beat up bad guys, they drop lot, level up, unlock new powers, your character gets stronger, you move on to harder areas and missions .
My journey with Marvel Heroes started way back in 2012. I was one of the lucky ones to be able to beta test the game. At that time there was (if I remember correctly) 6-8 characters you could play and about 4 of them you had to find (or pay for) in the game. I believe there were only a few areas to play in as well. Even when the game officially launched in 2013 it was still short on things to do, and characters to use. I specifically remember there being only a few “Chapters” and more was being released as time went on.
Today, there are SO many characters, Captain America, Daredevil, Spider-man, Venom, The Green Goblin, Wolverine, Cyclops, Rocket Racoon, Cable, the list just goes on! Also for every character you have SO many skins to unlock! So you can play as your favorite hero in your favorite hero’s costume! Its great! What is even better about that is, when I first started the game it looked alright, but they have been revamping the Heroes looks and DAMN do they look good!
They keep up with current events like Movies, Comics and TV Shows, creating that characters new costume from those sources so their fans can use them in the game! For instance everyone’s favorite Netflix superhero show Daredevil! They have the costumes used in the show for Punisher, Elecktra, and of course Daredevil himself, and they all look fantastic!
Enough about the costumes though, lets move on to the actual game. Compared to 2012-2013 they NOW have more areas then ever! They have 10 awesome “Chapters”, dozens of quests varying in difficulty and more bad guys than you can shake a stick at! If you have already went through the entire story with you Hero, head over to Midtown beat some bad guys and take out the Sinister Six, or a fleet of Sentinals, or Crossbones! There are even more objectives in this area and more in other areas too!
Their work is never done though! Not only do they revamp the heroes looks and create new areas and chapters and things for you to do, but they also evaluate and restructure heroes powers and abilities if they think it is necessary. The first character I got to level 60 (max lvl) was Cable, and he was pretty good, I liked him. They revamped his powers and abilities and he is like a whole new character and it is absolutely AWESOME! The upgrades they gave Cable were mind blowing, he is a BLAST to play (pun intended). They do this for ALL characters when they think it is needed and that is great news for fans of ALL Heroes!
I have spent about $200 on this game over the last 3-4 years, which isn’t a whole lot if you think about it, but YOU don’t have to spend a PENNY! Marvel Heroes is a FREE TO PLAY GAME! Everything in the game can be found or achieved IN GAME. Collect eternity splinters to unlock new heroes to play, find costumes from boss item drops (but they are really hard to find), EVERYTHING can be achieved with out spending a dime.
You can have Team Up (computer controlled) heroes to fight by your side like Agent Venom, Carnage, Havok, Spider-man and so many more! Create your own “Super Group” where you can promote other players, and form an unbeatable team (basically a clan). Collect legendary items, costume effects, and “pets”. I honestly believe this game has EVERYTHING for EVERYONE and I would most certainly LOVE for my friends to get involved and play with me as well!
There is so much more I haven’t even touched on but I just wanted to get people to see the main parts of what makes Marvel Heroes so great! Hopefully I have inspired you to download and try the game for yourselves, if you want to enjoy the Marvel Universe and have loads of FUN the link is right here > Marvel Heroes 2016
