For any WoW players thinking of trying out Champs let me just say that you will feel pleasantly at home with the interface, movement/targeting/combat, the questing system etc. This game innovates on many levels, but it certainly made efforts to feel familiar with respect how you interact with the world. It's obvious they looked at WoW and said "why is it so popular, and what lessons can we learn from that", and then incorporated those things into the game (very successfully too).

I like the sound of that. As WoW has been my only MMO ever, I've been bored to death with it and have been intrigued by it... especially the comic book aspect of it. But I watched a gameplay trailer and it left me very underwhelmed.So how about it wow.com? give us a review and comparison to the "standard" MMO champion.Any other WoW players have some feedback on it?

Coming dangerously close to self-pimping, I wrote a pretty involved review of it after the open beta began and the NDA dropped. I've played WoW since before BC launched so it's certainly what I'm more familiar with, and despite playing other MMOGs routinely I still always come back to WoW. Nevertheless I definitely think Champions Online has stuff to offer and I thought it had a really innovative and fun approach to gaming. The review is on my site which I won't link to directly out of courtesy to WoW.com, but you can find it at joshuameadows.com if you'd like my perspectives of the game as someone who's spent the most amount of time in WoW.
