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.

Ever since DC Universe Online made an appearance in 2011, the MMO world has waited patiently for Marvel to unleash its own version of the superhero fight fest. After four years in the making it's finally here, in all of its Diablo-esque, isometric,...

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...

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 favorite...

CommentMarvel Heroes was recently launched by developer Gazillion Entertainment for PC, and marks one of the first MMO/Action RPG hybrids designed as a fully licensed free-to-play title. It borrows elements from both fields, featuring open areas...

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.

By EuroGamer on 40

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.

By 411Mania on 75

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.

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.

By PCGameNetwork on 60

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.

Plus, it’s free, so there’s really no reason not to pick it up and check it out. While that is all I have to say for now, I did not make it to the end game of Marvel Heroes just yet. The endgame includes things such as dungeons, challenges and PvP.

By BlisteredThumbs on 50

This is a somewhat sloppy and overall messy game that fails to capture the essence of its license again and again. While rarely an out and out bad game, it is also not a particularly good one either and falls very much into the category of mediocre. Developer Gazillion Entertainment technically has succeeded in their goal to make a Marvel...

I may wander back, yet I feel as if my hope for this game's future and my plans to make Marvel Heroes my next addiction have already been crushed. I'm a Marvel fanboy, but unless the carrot is brought closer and soon or the cost of heroes decreased, Gazillion's title will very likely face a mass exodus, myself included.

Sin embargo, aplastar cabezas con Hulk, romper la cuarta pared con Deadpool, balancearnos por la ciudad con Spider-Man, desatar el poder de la Fuerza Fénix con Jean Grey, sentirnos como el Capitán América cada vez que lanzamos su escudo o freír a cañonazos a nuestros enemigos enfundados en la armadura de Iron Man...

By GamesRadar on 70

The game offers plenty to do and an impressive breadth of characters and skills to master, but some polish in certain areas could really help make it a game you’d want to pay to play. If you’re looking for a new MMO or a game with Diablo-like replayability, play Marvel Heroes first and pay for it later (if you want, that is.)

By GameReactor on 70

There's loads of content, dozens of fantastic characters, and more fan service than you could shake a stick at. Our advice is give it a try, after all it's free, and if you enjoy the first hour or so then don't be afraid to invest a little to get the best out of the experience.

By Meristation on 62

Los héroes están bien diferenciados en cuanto se evolucionan y esto es bastante bueno, pero no suficiente para hablar de un título que haga justicia con las licencias que maneja. Pruébalo y decide por ti mismo si dar una oportunidad a Spiderman, Hulk, los X-Men y compañía.

By DeadWildRoses on 75

Action RPG’s in general are about having fun killing the monsters and reviling in the 'magic pants' that they drop for your character - but if you don’t like your character there will be problems.
