Yeah, the biggest problem is it really doesn't feel all that villainous. I had one bank robbing mission which was fun, but basically everything is the same as CoH. The missions have no depth to them.

Some new textures for missions are nice, but there isn't near enough of them. Same for costumes. I was really underwhelmed by the lack of new stuff. I thought there'd be a ton more options.

The new zones don't feel all that villainous at all. I was expecting a much more "Gotham" like environment, with a really dark and sinister feel.

I think this is the main reason they're not opening up the beta - which at this point every other company would be doing - because they know anyone that was underwhelemed with CoH will be underwhelmed with CoV. They may however gamble 50 bucks just to satisfy their curiosity seeing as they didn't get to put the game through its paces in a beta.

The PvP and base raids would be fun, but if that's 2 or 3 months off, than there's definitely no point in buying the game now.
