As a little kid I was always collecting comics. I enjoyed reading about my heroes as they went upon their adventures. I was pretty excited when I first heard about City of Heroes. In COH you create your super hero then send them out into the world with other people from all over the world.
COH is a multiplayer online game. Bascially you interact with people and then team up to go on "simple" quests, or to help the people of the city against your everyday thugs.
The graphics are quite good and give you the sense of being in a super hero world. I'm not to keen on the quests as they start to become repetitive and I got bored with the game quite quickly.
There is a monthy cost and it will cost you approximately $15 a month which is about online with every other multiplayer online game such as Everquest, DAOC, WOW etc.
Although this game was fun at first I found myself cancelling my account, as it just couldn't peek my interest and this from a big comic fan. Maybe with the release of City of Villains I might just give it another shot.
