CO is just too small. I mean what is it? The city plus the desert and the arctic zones? I can't believe how small it is. Definitely not worth a monthly fee for that alone. Plus way too much nickel and diming with the C-store for content that should be going into the game for that monthly fee. I'll have to go back and take a look at it again though. I did create a replica of Fumbles from Robot Chicken though which is just awesome.

Eh, there are only a handful of Zone maps... but they're a lot bigger than most of the Zone maps. Plus they added 2 more zones (1 crappy, 1 that's alright). Though, COH still has more square-kilometers than CO in regards to Zones.

As for the C-Store... all of the content was free for the monthly fees. The only stuff that wasn't were the costumes / bases / travel-powers.

I tried getting back into COH a short while ago, and it's fun. Not as action-y as CO... and while they've updated the graphics since I last played the COH graphics are still a little long-in-the-tooth. But for free, I might hop back in.
