City of Villains has captured my attention in a way City of Heroes has failed to do. My villain is just so much more fun to play than my do-gooder. I have found that my favorite missions have been those that take me into Paragon City. Now while I never actually step foot in to the real hero city, it’s more of an instance. It just is tremendous amounts of fun to kick all kinds of ass in these areas that look familiar from my play time with my hero.

One Two

The thing is that this part of the game also reminds me of the failings of this super hero/villain game once more. Beating the crap out of those heroic Freedom Corps Longbow agents is one thing. I want to be able to mug the civilians of the city while I’m there doing my evil acts. Yet while in these specific instances I never see any civilians I can attack. For that matter when I go on a bank heist why can’t I hurt/kill the innocents in the bank while I try to get my loot? I’m sure these civilians have money on them. Even a very meager amount would make me feel really villainous.

Yet I just don’t get to be a real comic book villain. It’s the same line of thinking that fuels my criticisms of the Hero part of the game. To really be a comic book villain I have to be able to hurt, maim, and kill the civilians of these areas I’m running around in. Otherwise it’s just so obvious that this is just a very half assed attempt to do a superhero mmorpg correctly.

That being said my Mastermind allows me to forget about these issues as I play. I still am able to beat enemies of higher level. Using game terms Oranges and Reds fall to me and my squad of dead president zombies. I can do away with a good number of opponents at once. Since the last post I also able to pick up my advanced travel power at level 14. Flying around the zones just is so fun. Plus being able to make a beeline right to the place I need to go makes it so much more convenient. At level 15 I was able to pick a title. So to others my name say “the Infamous Deaths Grasp” or something along those lines (I can’t remember now what I picked). I now look forward to hitting level 20 so I can get my cape. It would make my villain look much better while flying.
