  • Excellent:
  • Good:
  • Average:
  • Bad:


  • Create your own villain with tons of customization; lots of fun to be had; easy to get into for people that are tired of the same old fantasy MMORPG setting.


  • There wont be much else to do for people that demand a few extra-curricular activities; the new content is only cosmetic and, outside of PvP, plays nearly identical to City of Heroes; you really never feel like you’re doing anything evil.
