The guys behind Diablo and Diablo 2 are back, and this time they’re prepping a super-powered MMO for the masses. Marvel Heroes puts you in the shoes of a Marvel superhero of your choice and duke it out online. We’ve got two gameplay videos here. So after Prota’s statement, hit the jump to see what James has to say.
Prota: Before the convention I had hardly heard anything on Marvel Heroes. However, after testing it out, it easily became my favorite demo of the con. A Diablo-clone with the man behind the series at the helm just screams awesomeness. I tried several characters throughout the weekend and enjoyed the diversity between them all. As the Hulk, I was stunning and knocking away enemies left and right. However, with Storm I had to use her range and flight powers to play more defensively. Speaking of flight, the implementation of flight in a game like this is a first, but it felt very natural soaring through the stage. It also made for a very interesting way to dodge and counter enemy attacks. The fact that this is the only game at the convention that had me continuously coming back for more pretty sums up how I feel about Marvel Heroes. This, in my opinion at least, is the free-to-play MMORPG that people need to look out for.
Suikoinfinity: Control felt just like playing Diablo 1 or 2. The first half of the demo had me getting pissed because I was toggling autorun with the mouse for some reason, and I wanted to yell at the game until I realized the demo was running on one of those crazy gaming mice with like 90 buttons. What I find amazing is the roster; there’s just so many characters to play as and apparently they all have different ways to build them, so I’m looking forward to variety. If you’re into co-op gaming, this may be something to keep on your radar. It’s going to be free to play anyway, so there’s no excuse not to try it out!
