Wicked review- 2nd revisit
Summary: Wicked has made some real improvements in the past months, not least of which include a new 1080p HD download format. The library is huge, a new Wicked Pictures DVD is added each week, and members enjoy unlimited access to the archive of downloads, streams, and regularly scheduled live shows. Fans of porn stars, big-budget adult DVDs and hardcore porn in general should get a lot from a subscription here.

We're back at Wicked Studio's official site today to check in on some recent improvements to the members area as well as an addition of a new 1080p HD video download option. Wicked itself really needs no introduction, though - this is one of the largest, most famous porn studios to have ever existed and in 2012 they are still running their exclusive line of DVD porn. On their official website they make available a huge library of their titles, both past and present, and include other features as well: live shows with their exclusive girls, access to a huge vault of bonus videos, and more.
On our last visit, the site has just a few minor issues, mostly when it came to things like navigation. They've made some adjustments though. So let's have a look and see what Wicked Pictures has to offer now in 2012!
Wicked Pictures is one of the biggest names in DVD porn and porn in general. They've worked with the industry's best - from babes like Brianna Banks to newer girls such as Jessica Drake, Gracie Glam, and April O'Neil. This library features a huge amount of their past and current titles available to you as a member, and you'll enjoy unlimited access to the downloads and streams as well. With new 1080p HD download formats and an improved members area, Wicked.com has jumped a few points and is one of the best site's we've reviewed so far in 2012.
Big Budgets, Big Stars, Great Porn
Wicked has always had the same style: big budget, top quality production. Just because it's porn doesn't mean that corners can be cut. Just the opposite, even more should be invested to make sure quality is premium for showing off their impressive porn star casts. This library is testament to that ethos of quality.
They've explored a lot of variety in porn here, though hardcore is the steady middle ground of every title. You can expect varieties in fantasies and stories, which often play a strong part in movies. Usually you can tell from their titles how much 'fantasy' and acting plays into it. A recent release, "Tits", is pretty much a gonzo porn title with hardly any setup or acting at all, but "Men Black: A Hardcore Parody", has plenty of acting, and definitely ran the studio a little bit extra to produce.
You'll see big tits, small tits, 18-23 year old babes and MILFs, group sex, threesomes and orgies. There are girls who take it up the ass or get double penetrated, and girls who prefer other girls and their big sex toys. Rarely do the hardcore episodes come off as vanilla. Though they don't get into anything too rough or too kinky, their Grade-A porn star talent makes each scene something special and memorable.
As for their porn stars, you can expect the very best talent to be served in each and every DVD. Their "most active" babes include: Jessica Drake, Alektra Blue, Stormy Daniels, Kristen Price, Jenna Jameson, Mikayla, Brooke Banner, Tori Black, Asa Akira and Briana Blair - to name just a few of the more than 1,000+ girls here.
1080p HD Video Now
There are now 1080p HD downloads. These are MP4 downloads with 1920x1080 screens (6 mbits) that look great. They are maybe just slightly less clear than the best 1080p HD I've seen, but are still outstanding download options and they capture all the details in a very large resolution.
Several Download Options & Streaming Videos
There are 720p HD downloads that are full length scenes from the DVD. These are MP4s with 1280x720 screens (5 mbits). They look great, but aren't as large as the 1080p HD option. You can also save a DVD quality MP4 with a 640x480 screen (1.5 mbits) that looks good. For those with iPods and similar devices, there is a special format for you as well. What was missing for downloads were alternative file types and clip options. You can only save a full scene, not parts of a scene.
The streaming videos play in their very high quality Flash video player. It has up to 1080p HD as a quality setting. You need to put the movie to full screen to enjoy this higher HD quality to its maximum but even in the embedded player the HD setting will look sharper and richer with color. You can stream movies start to finish and skip around in a scene as much as you like.
Pictures can be browsed online or saved in zip-archives. The photos aren't very large, though; most are just 600x800 pixels, but they do look good and are professionally taken pictures.
Improved Navigation, But Still Not Perfect
During our last visit the navigation was very very simple and it didn't work well with so much content. Wicked has added a new search function that works surprisingly well. You can put in a model's name or a niche like big tits or anal sex, and get back a list of results. Besides this you can sort by DVD, Scene or Model, and organize the order of results by date, popularity or views. More still needs to be done here. I really want to see a category list or a way to filter DVDs by category that's more explicit and clear. The search option works but it isn't as clear or obvious that you're getting the right results back 100% of the time.
Live Shows With Their Porn Stars
They mentioned live shows on their tour and you have access to them. They are with the Wicked porn stars and usually feature live hardcore sex. You can stream past episodes online and they announce the time and date of upcoming shows in advance, so you can tune in and take part via interactive chat. There is usually one show a month, at least.
Huge Library & New DVD Each Week
There are over 550+ DVD titles here and thousands of picture galleries. On top of that are thousands of video feeds as well in the bonuses. A new DVD from Wicked Pictures is added each week to keep the content rolling in as well.
Behind-The-Scenes & Red Carpet Bonuses
Extras include the bonus DVDs as well as behind the scenes footage from Wicked Production and Red Carpet content from awards shows.
Wicked is one of the world's best porn studios, and their 1080p HD website is an awesome and affordable way to enjoy thousands of their scenes whenever you want.
Wicked has taken steps to improve their members area since our last visit about 6 months ago, and I'm sure these are just the first of many changes to come. Navigation has been worked on, but most notable are the new 1080p HD videos that you can download and stream online. With a studio of this quality, the collection of porn is without question going to be fantastic, and full of diverse types of sex and fantasies and starring highly-rated porn star models. With the bonuses (live shows, BTS footage, bonus videos) this is a really nice pick for fans of DVD or studio porn and porn stars.
Zero Tolerance Studios has a website full of its own DVD content in HD format as well. That studio's site isn't quite as large, but it does offer some great hardcore and gonzo porn with popular porn star models. If you like your hardcore a bit more rough and explicit with more fucking and less story, then ZTOD is a must-visit site. For free you get access to their sister studios' sites as well: Third Movies and Black Ice Pass.
For larger but not studio-specific DVD collections we can't recommend the following sites enough. Videobox, which is affordable besides being a fantastic and diverse library, and VideosZ, which has recently increased its offerings and improved its member experience.
