Is It Any Good?

Parents say: Not yet rated
Kids say: Not yet rated

Starting as nothing more than a lowly thug, players guide their character through the game world to defeat do-gooders, complete quests, and become a master criminal supervillain. Players may also battle against players from City of Villains' sister game City of Heroes, although player-versus-player (PvP) engagements are optional.

One strength of City of Villains is that it strongly encourages players to form teams to tackle more challenging quest objectives. While the game is not difficult to play solo, it's considerably more enjoyable creating mayhem alongside other costumed villains. Large numbers of players can create more permanent associations of like-minded villains who enjoy menacing society together.
