For Truth and Justice
Or at least some heavy duty smacking of evil people (and misguided zombies...). City of Heros: If you can get a trial key, give it a go. It's very much in the mold of World of Warcraft as far as mechanics are concerned, and has a couple of minor issues in its interface, at least for me. On the other hand, the sheer amount of customization to your hero more than makes up for any deficiencies in the control scheme.
The only really creepy thing: the voiceless throngs of anonymous citizens. It's very eerie to run past a crowd and hear no one speaking. And it appears that the automobiles have noiseless engines as well. Really want to try City of villains now, too.
Now ... back to duty. Come Barnacle boy - I sense EVIL!!!
