It's like Diablo meets Grand Theft Auto. Fights are not terribly button mashy if you play it like an action game (Final Fight, Streets of Rage, etc) like blocking and rolling alot, range attacking, and power use when the time arises. Storyline is very superhero-ey, very cliche stuff, but it fits for DC, and it's relatively enjoyable. My only current complaint is that they feed you exp everywhere you go. I'm almost level 30 (cap) and have a bunch of missions to go through yet, not to mention alerts (instance dungeons), raids, duos, PvP stuff, and a bunch of other things to do, and they all give exp btw. Hell, even the regular enemies are in such bulk that killing them for a few minutes will give you some noticeable exp boosts. But other than that, it's a great game, plays well, controls solidly, plenty of content for a new MMO, and it's got Kevin Conroy and Mark Hamill doing batman and the Joker's voice acting. Can't go wrong...just be sure to use a controller for PC, they combat controls otherwise are terrible. Hell, just get it for PS3, it's obviously designed for it.
