The folks at Darkzero have tossed up a review of City of Villains, giving the MMORPG an overall score of 8.5/10. Their conclusion to follow:
When it comes down to enjoyment level, if you enjoyed City of Heroes then I don't see any reason for you to dislike the dark side of the force. While the missions are repetitive and linear, all you need to do to spice them up is play with a few friends, whether you met them in or out of the game. The graphics and sound aren't anything to praise the Lord for, but they do their job. If you get bored of playing a certain class, then simply make another one and continue having fun. That's what this game is all about. Fun. Sure, it's definitely not for everyone, but then again, what game is?
