It`s free out of the box, and you can beat the game without paying a cent.
Diablo gameplay with a roster of Marvel superheroes.
Good story, smooth game mechanics.
Nice selection of heroes and powers.
Plenty of post end-game missions, events, and group challenges.
Lots of content.
Tons of fan service.
Would be a much better game without the open-world MMO parts.
Some AI bugs.
Purchasing prices for characters and costumes are insane.
Lack of explanation of some key mechanics.
Generic visuals and character models.
Paying to play for your favorite hero.
Good with a couple of friends, but lots of simultaneous players ruins the experience.

The game attempts to patch some of these issues with a plot involving Doctor Doom and multiple dimensions and etcetera, and in this regard it’s at least true to its comic heritage – but as comics have slowly learned over the years, piling on a load of cosmic wiffle can’t transform a bad idea into a good one.42

As a Marvel Zombie a game that lets you take on the role of most of the big names from the House of Ideas should be an instant win with me. The Ultimate Alliance games certainly had been with my mates all crowded round a TV. This just meant we could...30

There is a lot of fun to be had with Marvel Heroes as long as you don't expect it to mirror the deep experiences of its action-RPG brethren. Fans of the comic book world will certainly enjoy spending some time stepping into the shoes of their...70

There’s little of the engaging combat and compelling visual progression systems found in classic isometrics like Diablo and Baldur’s Gate, nor is there the scope and wealth of content that characterises major MMO games. Given the talent and license behind it, that’s a real shame.57

The most absurd thing about this game - where all the scenery explodes, where one of the characters is big and green, where you can hurl cars at people - is that it thinks it deserves either your time or your money.40

The bottom line is, Marvel Heroes is pretty fun, fairly addictive, and while it isn’t a great game by any mean, it’s certainly a good one, and no one can tell me that a free Diablo-style game where I get to play as a Marvel superhero, even if it is Hawkeye, isn’t worth my time. If nothing else, at least it won’t cost you anything to find out.75

Either way, Marvel Heroes is a disappointment; a needless enforcement of multiplayer proving misguided, but perhaps doing its part to cover underlying issues that would hold it back no matter what. Not even Nick Fury could sort out these troubles.40

Marvel Heroes may find a tiny, vocal following but the majority of people will quickly become bored by the lack of interesting game play and poor design. Its “free-to-play” pricing and model are outrageous and unsustainable as they are, providing very little bang for the buck. Though the game has some potential, at the moment I can only recommend the pancakes.60
