Synopsis

We join our hero perched atop a granite gargoyle high above the city of Gotham. His eyes squint as he monitors the streets below, searching for crooked criminal conduct. From afar, he hears the alarm from Gotham National Bank and he dives from the darkness into the illumination of the streets. He soars through the canyon of skyscrapers, hearing the buzz of the citizens below that he has chosen to protect. He sees the bank is only a block away — just then a burst of red passes him to join in the fray. As the two heroes approach the crime scene, they hear the creepy cackling of The Joker. This will not be a run-of-the-mill fight for justice, but then again — what is, in the DC Universe?

Key Features:

  • Battle with or against your favorite DC Comics heroes and villains, including Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman and The Joker
  • Live out the action and drama in detailed, well-known locations such as Gotham City and Metropolis

Will you choose to don the cape and mask to fight for good — or are your intentions more sinister?

5.0 out of 5 stars A Beta Tester's Perspective January 11, 2011
Platform for Display:PlayStation 3|Edition:Standard
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I have to admit, I had a lot of fun. Playing in a group is fun, but so is playing solo. That, in and of itself, makes this game rather unique. It does become progressively harder to solo, but I would have gotten bored if it hadn't. The controls were fun as well, in that attacks were combos like triangle+square+triangle which lent an arcade feel, but there was lots of collecting and a progressive mission/storyline that was undeniably RPG.

If you want to play solo, buy the game and play away. If you want to group, get yourself a headset (the trick I learned is to have your bluetooth on before you log into the game). I also purchased a wireless keypad, but the game can sometimes be so quick, it shouldn't be your first choice for battles. It is almost required to have some kind of keyboard though, if you want to interact outside of the group/solo play.

Do I think this is the greatest game ever? No. But is it a great game? I feel it is.

I am a huge DC fan. I also really enjoy action RPGs as well as MMOs, but, very importantly, I also like to occasionally solo and not feel dependent on grouping. Finally, I like trying games that bring something new. While some may argue that each component of what DCUO brings isn't new, I would say back that its unique in the way its delivered.

Specifically, when I played the Beta I took one character to 20. I also sat with my son while he played to level 7. His mother used my account to play 2 characters: one good, one evil.

Just my two cents. Hope this helps a few.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Actual Game is Excellent January 12, 2011
Platform for Display:PlayStation 3|Edition:Standard
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
After hearing so many people cry about launch day issues and having to "pay to play" the game I decided to write my first game review. I wont pretend that the process leading up to actually playing the game is not tedious and boring. I too rushed home in the middle of the day to install my copy during my lunch break from work. I knew that it would probably take a while to install (more a limitation of the PS3 than a problem with the game), so I decided to have some lunch and mess around on my Xbox 360. I after lunch I was pleasantly surprised to see that the installation of the game was nearly complete. Yay me! I would be able to at least create a character before returning to work! It was at this point that the patch began to download and would take at least 4o minutes to complete. I guess there were issues that needed to be addressed after the blurays had been pressed and i'd rather install a patch than have them push back the release date to repress blurays.

Saddened I left to return to work, I'd have to wait to crack heads in Gotham until after work.

When I returned from work I was greeted by the create a toon screen. Character creation is easy enough. The first choice is where to create your toon. I was torn between the PVP vs PVE worlds. I created toons for both PVP and PVE worlds. The PVP world seemed to be more populated however it was glitchy and I had problems seeing who was attacking me. Also I had chosen a villian and there were far more heroes. Figuring that I'd wait til they iron the kins out I then moved on to the PVE server.

Back to character creation. There are several options to choose from and some seem to have some effect on gameplay. After choosing your gender and morality you choose mentor.

4.0 out of 5 stars DO NOY BUY!!! November 5, 2011

Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
Great Game!!! But, "DO NOT BUY"!!!!!!!!!!! It is NOW FREE to Download on PSN or PC Online.... Playing in a group is fun, but so is playing solo. That, in and of itself, makes this game rather unique. It does become progressively harder to solo, but I would have gotten bored if it wasn't.

3.0 out of 5 stars Fun But Full Of Bugs January 23, 2011
Platform for Display:PlayStation 3| Edition:Standard|Verified Purchase
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
I played in the beta which was fun except or the game crashing your PS3 for seemingly no reason. I bought the game on launch day and while I have had a lot of fun the game has a lot of problems. So if you are a MMO and Comic Book fan this game will be enjoyable but be advised:

a) voice chat rarely works
b) in game chat has an awful interface making it a pain to communicate
c) quest sharing is not present
d) game will crash your system once in a while
e) a lot of daily maintance by SOE do servers are down each morning
f) large 3gb download after u install 10+ gb from the disk (take me an hour others reported 2-5 hours)
g) game menus laggy, hard to use and sometime lock up

the good news is #e... SOE is trying to fix as much as they can as soon as they can. So in reality until March 2011 you are playing a paid beta.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Start of a Beautiful Friendship... January 15, 2011
Platform for Display:PlayStation 3|Edition:Standard
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Introduction / TLDR:

I must be honest from the get go: I have been waiting on this game for years. I watched videos. I read interviews. I stalked forums. And in short, I am pleased to say that this game has not merely met my expectations -- it has exceeded them.

Now, let me tell you Why:

Character Creation: There is so much choice here! My boyfriend & I did a bit of math and when we tried to figure it out we could not complete how many options that there ultimately are. I think we stopped at 324 based purely on mentors (6) x power sets (12 -- we counted the fact that there are two for each main type) x movement sets (3) x weapon choice (we used 9 but it may be 10?) This is without considering how your character will look and just how amazingly versitile and continuous this is throughout the entirity of the game. You can change it a thousand times over or look the same as you did your very first day, all while keeping on whatever will make your character as strong as possible -- brilliant!

Story & World Building: This, for me, is where many games can go astray -- especially MMOs. This is something that has to be nailed from day one if I am going to stay with a game. And this, I am delighted to say, is somewhere that they have completely succeeded. Now, I am not a DCU expert by any stretch. But it is clear that the game was designed with loving attention to detail both in its art and writing that makes what you are doing and where you are going have meanng and signifigance. From word go the experience feels important and exciting. I can understand that some people are arguing that the quest structure itself is not remarkable. However, I would say that the quality of atmosphere is what makes it remarkable.
