War of Heroes – A New Genre of Gaming

Marvel Heroes was a game released back in 2007 that took place in the Marvel Universe. It was an MMORPG and it was great because you got to play as your favorite childhood heroes in a massively multiplayer, online video game. I really enjoyed the game because it was an awesome experience, very well built, and the community of Marvel fans is absolutely fantastic.

The game comes equipped with everything that gives Marvel fans exactly what they want in a Marvel video game. First of all, it’s free which you can’t beat! It’s good for the game and the community because it will build a loyal fan base fairly quickly. Also, the number of players will be a lot higher, much higher than most paid MMORPGs. The competition may be pretty fierce too, which is why I think this will become a great game for all types of players.

Probably the coolest feature of the game, and the one I’m most excited about, is getting to play your favorite Marvel characters. From Thor to Spiderman, and even Tony Stark, you get to play your favorite characters from the Marvel Universe. I’ll probably be playing quite a few different ones just to get a feel and see who I really enjoy playing as. But right now I’m leaning towards Tony Stark (as I’m sure quite a few other people are as well), which leads me to my next point.


There may be quite a few Tony Starks running around in the game. This may be a deterrent to some people, but what I like to think is that you will be able to customize your character so you’re not exactly the same as tons of other people. To customize your character you are probably going to have to spend some serious in-game currency, but what else will you use it on. Just buy certain accessories and make your character truly yours and you will be good.

Another awesome feature of the game is that you will get to visit some awesome places in the Marvel Universe, probably places that you’ve read about in the comic books. Places like Avengers Tower and Savage Land are two places that I will most definitely be visiting. You’ll probably recognize tons of other places and little features if you’ve been following the comics quite a bit, I know I will.

All in all, I really enjoyed the game and I hope you do too. It’s a great game although it’s started to slow down from the bigger games like World of Warcraft. If you enjoy the Marvel Comic books I am 100% certain that you will enjoy Marvel Heroes.
