Cutter nailed it folks. Great looking game, runs smoothly, but even more limited in character creation then City of Heroes/Villains.

Pretty much, yeah. It's a watered down version of Champions Online, which was a watered down version of City of Heroes.

It looks great, though, and the voice acting is a nice touch. Character creation was incredibly disappointing and the gameplay is so simplistic that I just couldn't get into it at all, however. I don't know what they were going for here...it's a great showcase of the license with comatose gameplay.

If you want to make a console superhero game, fine. That can be fun. Make it play like one, though, not like a PC MMO with neutered abilities and options and then shoehorned into a limited console control scheme.
