Ok so, if I'm getting this right, we have a reahshed mmo version of Ultimate Alliance, which to be honest sounds REALLY cool, but then you read the articles, see pictures, and moreso notice how much it is going to cost for characters that people actually WANT to play without tossing off their wallets. The videos and pictures i've seen of this game look something awful, almost like disney got hold of the game and tried to pixar all of the characters with smooth non detailed textures. What texture we do see on characters look like a child drew them with a crayon and smudged them.
Then again artwork can be overlooked as long as it isn't completely horrible and we don't really have to pay much for the game, wait, I spoke too soon. Ok so the game is free to play, except your roster is limited and NONE of marvels Headliner characters are going to be in it, so if i want to play any of the avengers such as Cap, Ironman, Hulk, Thor, Hawkeye, or Black Widow, (the last two of which i have no interest in) i have to buy them, ok so I spend 5 bucks and get a new character not bad right? WRONG, characters are rediculously overpriced (20 bucks per char), especially for the child like impressions they have been given. If you would like a good portion of the entire roster, you could always sacrifice half your rent money (200$) for a massive pack, (the same price you would spend for 10 characters) which doesn't even offer anything nearly worth the buy. All you would get is a unique costume for some of the characters only available in that pack like the black symbiote spidey suit.
If that weren't bad enough, Movement is based on point and click which means you will have to click the map every time you want your hero to move, or attack, or do anything, which after a substantial amount of time, gets very tiresome. In short, at least DCUO actually Tried to make a successful mmo, granted they produced the same game we've been playing for years with only a new theme, but at least in the end the game is and was affordable for the look and style that it was. With the direction this game is heading, Marvel can't even argue that they were targeting a younger Or older audience, were that the case, bonus characters would be more affordable for kids or actually have similar artwork to the Real ultimate alliance games which looked amazing for what they were.
I think I'll take the mmo budget I'm saving by not playing this game and revise my comic collection. Comment below, if you like forum rp Click my signature image for a DC / Marvel mashup, Otherwise, Happy Gaming.
