Superhero game recommendations
« on: March 24, 2024, 04:38:49 PM »
Hello all!

I'm an ex-Heroclix and current MCP player looking for something new.

Heroclix - too expensive, too much a collectible game, WAY too much power creep, cards/powers are just overdone but I do like the variety.

MCP - it's a scenario card game and has little to do with KO'ing your opponent.

Here are some of my "wants"
Combat, combat, and more combat. I do not want any RPG elements and I'd like offense & defense to not be too swingy. When I roll my dice it needs to make sense...hope that makes sense! 😁

A good selection of abilities and powers. I don't mind page flipping to try and remember what does what.

One other thing that would be nice is a set of rules that have player made conversions for Marvel and DC characters. Now, this isn't a "must" but it would save me a load of time which I have very little these days.

Honestly, that's about it.

I have done some looking around and have read some info on the Four-Corner games, mainly Super Mission Force and Super Skirmish Gaming and have read some positive things.

Just seeing if there is anything else out there people might suggest.

Thank you and I appreciate your time

One that I like and seems to meet what you want is Power Legions.

It's been quite awhile since I played, but SuperSystem gives a good combat game.  And great for larger sized skirmishes if the likes of the Kree-Skrull War is your sort of thing.

I've played quite a few, and even wrote my own set, but I always come back to Super Mission Force. 
If combat is your primary driver, I recommend that one.
It has the "feel" I think you're looking for.

I also like Power Legions, it plays fine, but it never gave me that "feel" of over the top superhero action.
