City Of Heroes Architect Edition Review
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story
GameZone has posted a new review of Mission Architect, a recently release feature for NCSoft's superhero themed MMO, City of Heroes. The update gives players the tools to construct their own missions and share them with others in the game. GameZone gave the update a score of 8 out of 10.
As mentioned, the system of creating missions is tied into the game. Architect Entertainment is a holo-deck environment that is located throughout 19 different zones in the game world. Each player account (not the individual characters) has up to three published story arcs available to upload (the arcs can feature up to five missions, with up to 25 mission objectives in each mission). All local stories (the stories the player creates) are stored on your hard drive as text files. There is a My Published Stories, My Characters (custom characters) and My Enemy Groups (you can create your own enemies as well) categories that help the player create a rounded mission. And because players are taxed with creating the descriptions for the missions, it is possible to be as creative as they want (within certain filter parameters, that is). In addition to creating your own enemies and enemy groups, it is possible to step outside of the game lore and create their own legacy.Visit the page below to read the full review.

Once you have created a story and mission that you are satisfied with, you can upload so that other players can play that mission. When others are playing your adventures they get the equivalent experience points as if they were playing outside the mission editor. They also get to rate the mission afterwards and the player who created the content will receive benefits and rewards for higher-rated content.
About the only element that is not totally customizable are the mission maps, though there are 30 map sets with three different sizes per map sets and 20 options.
