I still play it just to move around the city. This honestly gives anything Marvel came out with as far as Spiderman a solid run for its money as far as creating an open sand box type of world.
Hell, one of my characters has wings and watching him fly is something I could lose much time on.
Also, the first month is free, but it costs 14 bucks a month to maintain after that...and after playing it, I can honestly see why.
You get free reign to create what you want. For instance, all of my characters are black and look like me except for one with an afro. You can create several characters and there are tons of people on line with you.
I am not saying it is a waste...just that you should know what you are getting into when you buy it.
It is a quality game with quality animation and a decent story line...but it takes time and a monthly rent check.
