Wow interesting review. I would like to add a few comments about the game play myself. It looks like you chose Deadpool which was my "hero" as well. I found that the majority of the game could be done by myself. however when I needed to I turned on the auto group function and I was generally grouped with 3 or more players until i decided to leave that group. As deadpool I was able to down Doom with the help of Storm who was about 2 lvl's above me. (and about 10 deaths even with God Mode)
While your statements about current "endgame" content are mostly correct there is a little more to it than just rinse repeat. All 3 terminals have 3 different levels and locations. each color terminal is used for specific goals. the green (solo) is for gaining XP and gear basically for your other toons. the red (group of 3 or more) is for gaining Gear and Super rare drops. the purple has a group challenge map ( 4 or more) that is random in that the mobs spawn in several waves could be any of the evil groups in the universe. The end boss is also random and drops an upgraded medallion which gives your toon more POWER. you also have the added disadvantage that as a group you can only die X number of times or it is a Fail as well. It also has a Timed event called Limbo also random mobs and end boss. but it is a join as a solo make groups once inside and is kinda a world event in that you can have 20 or more toons all defending that world It is mainly for massive amounts of XP to get you to lvl cap. The boss has a chance to drop some rare rewards as well as a high lvl medallion.
The end game needs work if it is to keep experienced players excited. but it is more than just rinse repeat. Releasing the game with out in game mail was a big bad Idea. The ability to only friend people when they are on line is just wrong in this age. Once you hit lvl cap with your toon it basicly becomes a loot game if you do not lvl other toons. Free players end up with 2 or more additional random toons by then. The game is not nearly as deeply playable as say Neverwinter but it has the potential to be a very solid game if the guys and gals at Gazillion can add more features that today's gamer expects and can quickly add content to help with the rise repeat feeling that the end game currently has.
Ok well thats my 5 cents to add to your review. I hope that gives a little more info about the End game play and perhaps helps people who haven't gotten there yet or are on the fence about trying out the game. Bottom line for me at least playing deadpool and listing to his smart mouth has not gotten old YET.
