Marvel Realm of Champions is a fantasy game setup revolving around the second generation of Avengers and their fight with the modern version of legendary marvel villains. The early characters are carved out of the skin of legendary heroes like Iron Man, Hulk, Captain America, Thor, and some amazing others. While we get to that later, let’s get on with our MROC review.
MROC offers a unique Storyline
In the era unknown, there were six war houses that emerged in the universe, totally far from each other. Until the evil Maestro joined them together to form planet Maelstrom. But now since the Maestro is murdered by the unknown forces, the unity of the war house is on the brink of collapse leading to battle amongst the war houses.
The legendary Tony Stark aka Iron Man took upon him the humongous task of restoring world peace and finding out the evil forces inflicting the chaos. You are going to join that team and help him restore world peace.
The game has two Gamemodes to choose from
MROC features two gaming mode, The Stronghold, is a PvE version where you team up with other players to fight the AI-controlled opponents. And the other mode is Arena conquest (PvP), where you team up with other online players to compete with another online team.
Both the mode offers victory bonuses in form of Gold, ISO, and Crystals. If you are a Marvel Contest of Champions player, you would identify these rewards and their usages. The gold is essential to buy arm and upgrade the player, while the extent is limited to the ISOs owned by you. The game starts with a default Iron Man like character and gives to option to unlock many other superheroes as you progress in the game.
Controls are smooth and offer smooth gameplay
The controls are convenient and easy to play like any other RPG. The games support two-hand gameplay with the right tap being a basic attack and the long hold on the right turns to a heavy attack. The player can also dodge the attack by dashing using the right hand.
The left hand majorly handles the joystick for navigation throughout the map. The arena sizes are not too extensive and can be easily memorized over a period. There are basic barrier and interactions within the arena that make it more interesting and challenging at the same time.
