Pros:

  • Travel powers are fun.

Cons:

  • Very little content for an MMO; monotonous grind; wonky interface from top to bottom.
  • You reach the level cap and stop earning new powers incredibly quickly, A variety of interface and voice chat issues, Combat and missions get predictable, Not enough content to keep you invested beyond the free month.

Ordinarily MMOs aren’t my cup of tea, but when a copy of DC Universe Online landed on my desk I decided I’d give a shot. It isn’t your typical sword-and-sorcery RPG – far from it. The DC universe is one where Batman and Superman reign supreme, and the...

Will you keep playing?Tom: Absolutely. Gladly. Enthusiastically. Even though character advancement for me has slowed and arguably turned into what you might call a grind, DC Universe remains a sort of comfort food action game. Log in, do a few short...

Many believe that passing judgement on an MMO at its release is unfair given that games of this nature tend to be expanded on by its developer on a regular basis. One that’s bad at launch therefore can be salvaged in time....

Judging an MMO within its first month on sale is a bit like critiquing architecture based on blueprints and floor plans. While Sony has laid the foundations, as with any MMO, construction is far from complete. If Sony deliver on their promise of...

Corporations know that some people will snatch up any piece of junk with properly branded packaging. Stamp a Star Trek logo on a box and the product inside could be, well, Star Trek Online... and a sizable number of people will still willingly dole...

DC Universe Online is a tough game to give a final overall score to. On one hand, the culture and history surrounding these characters and places is so well-established that stepping into their world feels like coming home in so many ways, such as...

Is it a bird? Is it a plane? Nah, it's just our hopes for DC Universe Online falling a bit from the heights we envisioned during our hands-on last month. The final product still packs a super-powered punch, but the thrill is fleeting. The quests...

I wish I loved DC Universe Online, but instead I just like it. It's got a lot going for it -- a great license, some superb voice actors, a lot of well-crafted settings, fast action-based combat, and an entire market of people who, so far, have barely...

The weeks that follow the launch of an MMO are never perfect, and in some cases, they're not indicative of what the game may look and play like a year or even a few months from now. DC Universe Online has had a decent launch: stable servers and a...

It's all the rage in the film industry: Take a prominent series of comic books (ahem, "graphic novels"), and give it a gritty reboot. Then, watch the money come pouring in. Well, DC Comics and Sony Online Entertainment see no reason this formula...

Das flotte Gameplay und die spannenden Story-Quests sind die ganz klaren Stärken von DC Universe Online. Jedoch überschatten Bedienmängel und technische Kritikpunkte diese. Zumindest puncto Steuerung erwarten wir in Kürze Besserung in Form eines...
