  1. If you liked "City of Heroes" but grew bored with its lack of complexity, you might enjoy the romp, thanks to the new setting and superior story arc. Just don’t expect anything remarkably different than you’ve already experienced, nor should you expect to feel particularly evil.

    An excellent extension of "City of Heroes" with a too-mild mean streak. [Jan 2005, p.80]

    The game definitely takes its place in the halls of infamy as one of the single most thrilling MMO experiences out there now. The raw catharsis of robbing banks, kidnapping innocents, and basically acting naughty in a virtual world while dressed up as the result of getting Jack Kirby and Stan Lee stoned-- there's little out there that beats it.
  4. The big selling promise was that you could be a villain, but the worst we could manage was to kidnap ... villains from other gangs. That's not a dark side, that's a shade of gray.

It is the only game I have experienced where making the character is as much fun as playing. It is a nice break from WoW and the community on my server is great. I would recommend this game to anyone to try :) Full Review »
