I enjoyed it alot at first, got bored with it about a week later, then right when I was about to give up I met some cool people to hang out with in the game. So IMO unless you can get into the "social" aspect of the game there isn't much there.
Simply put, consoles are made for gaming not for moving watching (unless you're playing Metal Gear....then it's both!). The DVD playback is a bonus. So the playback being merely average isn't too big of a deal in my mind.
