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.

I'll definitely go back and check it out I still have several mid-level heroes and villains. Muchas the original game missions were far too boring and repetitive I still loved just spending hours making different avatars or just travelling around using rhe various travel powers.

I tried the free week they offered with Going Rogue and honestly even after being a several year vet, I just can't go back to it after playing Champions Online.

I enjoy the zones in CoH/CoV more, but the only decent writing in all of CoX is in the 30-40 villains story arcs.

But what I can't go back to is the Character Power Customization. I LOVE making Theme'd characters, or very power specific characters and you still just can't do that in City of Heroes.

I haven't played since the first 3 months of launch. How is the game now?

I could not even begin to answer that question without writing a freaking dissertation.

There is so much. Villains and the Rogue Isles, new powersets, new zones, zone revamps, Preatoria and Going Rogue.

Go to the website and look at the features for each issue after issue 2 to get an idea of what has been added.

I will also probably end up giving this a spin again. I played it on release for a while, and then went back to it every now and then during a game lull. It's actually a pretty fun game with a good combat system.
