Traditional online role-playing fans may find City of Heroes’ focus on point-and-click fighting somewhat hollow, but for anyone who doesn’t give a flying forge about arcane armorcraft, City of Heroes delivers an action-oriented kick that most massively multiplayer games lack. Find your friends, hit the streets, shoot radiation beams from your eyes and smite evil in your day-glo lycra. That’s a comic-book fan’s idea of heaven - and that’s what City of Heroes delivers.
