Inside Mac Games has posted a review of the MMORPG City of Heroes: Mac Special Edition. This version of the popular superhero game from NCSoft and TransGaming includes both City of Heroes and the expansion City of Villians. Here's an excerpt from the review:

CoH avoids normal item drops (after all, when did any of the X-Men use anything they didn't bring with them after the mission was over?), instead having three types of primary items, almost all of which can be bought at shops and all of which can be bought at the in-game auction house. This is a strong advantage, as there is no need to keep hitting the same spawn points to get something that rarely shows up.

First, there are short-term boosts called "Inspirations" which function much as potions do in other games, providing bursts of health or damage. Second, there are enhancements, which provide a longer-term bonus, over the course of several levels, to one aspect of one of your powers. Finally, there are inventions, which are made from salvage and recipes. All of these items drop or are given as rewards, and all of them can be traded at the auction house.
