City Of Heroes: Freedom Reviewed
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

PC Gamer has posted a new review of NCSoft and Paragon Studios' super hero themed MMO, City Of Heroes: Freedom. The review returns to the venerable MMO to examine the changes to the game since the recent switch to a free to play model. PC Gamer gave CoH:F a score of 86 out of 100.

From the review:

City of Heroes: Freedom is one of the most generous free-to-play games ever. Bad news for crime. Great news for us.

If you’ve ever bought it in the past, you keep everything you unlocked. Even new players can access almost everything. Pet classes get the shaft and have to be bought, as do a few other archetypes and powers, but most are available. So are most costume pieces aside from a few auras and themed sets, and both Hero and Villain factions. The Going Rogue expansion is the only major lock-out, although you can still wander its questless streets if you feel like taking a boring holiday from the fight.

Get into the world itself and things keep getting better. City of Heroes hasn’t had a visit from Deathwing, but the leap in quality of the opening areas at least is a Cataclysm-level update… uh… in a good way. For starters, while Paragon has always understood the importance of making you feel awesome from Level 1, the opening missions now serve up stories that let you do proper hero stuff, not just painstakingly sweeping every last bloody warehouse from Atlas Park to Kings Row.
