Couple hours in and it's pretty fun so far. Right now I'm playing Captain Boomerang because his traversal is cool and I like the way it's integrated into his combat.


If you've seen the videos, you know exactly what you're getting.

The gist of the reviews I've read seems to be:
  • Super-gorgeous visuals
  • Story is whatever, although the characters are really well-written
  • Deep customization
  • Infectiously fun gameplay
  • Boss fights are god-awful, and the final battle is a reskin of a previous
  • There are really only 5-6 types of encounters that are repeated over and over and over and over and over
  • The endgame seemed to unilaterally be met with "lol, no"
I'm sure I'll pick it up at some point, but I'll wait for patches/updates, more characters to be added (since it sounds like at least 2 more are on the way?), and a price drop. Hopefully by the end of the year this'll be in a really good place. (And maybe if the PS5 Pro rumors bear out, I could hook up my current PS5 elsewhere so my wife and I could play this co-op together; we haven't done not-couch-co-op since Anthem!)

I feel like the reviews I'm referencing agree that it's kind of a mess and a missed opportunity, and I'm sorry if my summary didn't make that clear. I could point to other games that execute some key elements brilliantly but whiff on building much of anything out of 'em -- Anthem and Agents of Mayhem are two that immediately spring to mind -- and it sounds like Suicide Squad is in that same vein. Ultimately, I did enjoy both of those other ones, warts and all, so maybe that'll be the case here too, but I don't intend to find out anytime soon.

The reviews I read this morning (which went up around an hour ago) are from Kotaku and Forbes, FWIW.

I actually deleted my post because I haven't played it and didn't want to be too negative. That said, sure it can be a mess and still fun. I liked Agents of Mayhem as well. Sometimes it's fun to just shoot stuff with friends.

I posted what he quoted above. I just deleted it while he was still posting.
