City of Heroes Mac Special Edition

A fantastic superhero experience

City of Heroes/Villains is rip-roaring, cape-flapping fun, and it's finally available for the (Intel) Mac! It's a massively-multiplayer online game, which explains why there's no demo available: you get a month's subscription with your purchase of the client, and that's essentially your "demo". The players are friendly and helpful to newcomers (even on the villain side, oddly enough), and the sheer degree of customization possible in your powers and your personal appearance is breath-taking. Want to shoot fireballs, control plants, sheath yourself in protective ice, have a wolf head, be a vampire? You can do any or all of those (not all at once, of course). Teams are normally easy to find and a blast to play in: the combined powers of several different hero types are always much more effective than any individual alone. Great fun for any fan of comics: it really does give you that "playing a comic book" feeling.
