[Marvel Heroes Omega is the latest MMORPG to hit the PlayStation 4 by Gazillion]

Marvel Heroes Omega has been out on the PC for the longest time underneath the titular name. “Marvel Heroes 2016/2017.” So gamers from all around the world were excited to try their hand at the vastly popular MMORPG from Gazillion. However, It was not until recently that Gazillion had decided to take the next step with Marvel Heroes and eventually port this game on the PlayStation 4 platform. Even then Marvel Heroes Omega is proving to be a worthy contender for one of the most popular MMORPG’s to play on the PS4 to date.

[ Marvel Heroes Omega features actual comic book style art for its Story Mode cut scenes, This is just an example of such. ]

Marvel Heroes Omega for the PlayStation 4 focuses on the the story of The Marvel Universe’s heroes compromising of its various popular faces such as Iron Man, Captain America, Thor, and some former villains such as Deadpool to combat the forces of Doctor Doom, A.I.M, The Kingpin, and various other Marvel Comics villains. However the main antagonist for the Campaign itself is none other than Doctor Doom, but other villains also make their appearances along the way such as The Mandarin, and M.O.D.O.K over the collective sum of nine chapters overall each with their sub chapters to boot. So if you do not like playing per se’ Deadpool a certain way? You’ll have a different way to play him based on your talents. Now, these talents are unlocked on levels 32, 38, 44, 50 and 56 for the final talent tree. Each talent has three different choices overall, also once you hit level 60 you will be able to access your ultimate ability by pressing L1+R1 at the same time. The ultimate abilities are different for each character, so making wise choices is vital. There is also a Synergy system which adds certain stat passives at level 25 and 50 respectively for each hero. If you gear them around your heroes stats to make them stronger. I.E: Synergize Deadpool with a hero who also uses gun powers like Star Lord for extra damage to your base abilities.

[ The real draw in for Marvel Heroes Omega to me is the Talent system! It offers a lot of customization.]

Marvel Heroes Omega’s story mode is a lot of fun and adds so much to the atmosphere of the game. There are also other modes that make this games fun factor on point. After completing the story mode, the game offers operations which you can repeatedly do for extra bonuses overall for your character. This mode also has the Bounty Hunter system which rewards players for the bare number of kills accumulated, this ranges from usually 100 kills to 350 kills. Now, this is also good because after you kill the boss it allows you to open extra treasure chests at the end of the level based on your collective amount of kills.

The Base MHO game allows you to play on an open map with several people. The patrols allow you to pretty much play at your leisure rather than being stuck on a linear path. There are also trials to increase the difficulty of your game thus giving you greater rewards ranging from Heroic Trial, Super Heroic Trial, then Cosmic Trial. Now each trial has you pretty much facing off against two waves of 26 enemies under the clock. With each successive difficulty, you complete you unlock better gear.  The difficulty determines what style of gear you receive.

Personal Likes:

[Marvel Heroes Omega features a wide range of heroes to choose from.]

My Personal Likes are listed below

– Marvel Heroes Omega’s Hero Selection
It has a decent selection to choose from overall.

– Marvel Heroes Omega’s Storyline
Each chapter is introduced with actual marvel style drawings.

– Each Hero has their own voice actors from their studios
Like Deadpool has his voice, Wolverine has his, Etc.

– Each Hero has Multiple Costumes to choose from.
For example, Spider Man has his Iron Spider Costume.

Personal Dislikes:

[Personally, I think you should not have to pay cash for more storage. That should have been in game costs.]

My Personal Dislikes are listed below

– The time it takes to release the content for this game.
While the presentation is top notch PC has way more stuff.

– A number of Eternity Splinters you need to grind.
For some heroes, they are as low as 250 for others 775

– The amount of storage you get for a fresh character.
40 Spaces is a little disheartening for a fresh playthrough.

– The lack of the Unique Equipment System for this build. As of 6/3, The lack of the unique system is a letdown.

[Marvel Heroes Omega does a lot of things right but until they do everything right? Gazillion will have their work cut out for them.]

The gameplay to me is probably better than what I thought it would be on the PS4, as far as I am personally concerned. Marvel Heroes Omega translates pretty well from the conversion from being a PC original title to an actual PS4 title. Honestly, I’d like to see more titles done in this fashion because the Diablo formula works pretty well with this particular game. Granted it took them redesigned cut scenes and a few extra chapters to polish the title as a whole but once that was done it went pretty smoothly if I do say so myself. ~ Samurai.
