City of Heroes review

Evil must be smited! Smitten? Aw, screw it - just blast the bastards

Why you can trust GamesRadar+ Our experts review games, movies and tech over countless hours, so you can choose the best for you. Find out more about our reviews policy.

As you might expect from a game that runs 24/7, there's always something happening somewhere in the city, whether it's randomly generated or tautly scripted. True danger is found in the player-vs-player zones, where interlopers from sister game City of Villains cross the border for some voluntary life-and-death struggles. Since the forces of good and evil constantly clash on the streets of these special areas, you'll never have to look far for a fight.
