Get ready to experience the high-energy action that encapsulates this fabled world, and become engrossed in thrilling battles with or against famed heroes and villains, including Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman and The Joker.
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?

Character Creation - I've read comments stating that it isn't all that great but honestly it's a lot of fun to edit your character's appearance. I spent 2 hours alone just on trying different combinations of clothing, colors and accessories. As for the powers, you have six trees to choose from: fire, ice, nature, gadgets, mental and magic. It's very limited but the powers unlocked for each one are very useful for just about any situation. Each one focuses on a specific role; fire and ice are defense, mental and gadgets are control and magic and nature are healing. All classes can enter into a damage mode so there's no need for damage dealers. Then you choose what type of weapon you want to fight with, this will be your main damage dealer so choose wisely. You have a few good selections but none that will blow your mind. Melee weapons like the staff, one handed, two handed, brawling, martial arts and the bow(yes the bow is melee). Ranged you get hand blasters, rifle and dual pistols. I might be forgetting a weapon but I doubt it. You can choose one of three mentors, who they are depend on whether you're a villain or a hero. The reality is that it doesn't really have a huge difference in the game, it only makes a difference in the armor you get to unlock and the first few missions. Body type is very limited as there are only three, a child, normal buffed up human and a hulking huge beast of a man. After that, you choose a name and you're good to go.Read more ›
What can I say about this? As would be expected with a superhero MMO, this is an extremely strong point. You can literally create any hero you want with any color combination (limited to 3 main colors or you can pick a favorite hero and have the game make a char with a similar look and feel to that hero) and equipment combo you want. There are three main "Classes" that you will pick from (Defensive, Controller, Healing) which will define you in group role. Of these classes there are 2 different types of powers you can pick from (I.E. I made a controller with mental powers, I use illusions and telekinesis as my supernatural powers). After this you will be asked to pick a weapon that you will use (there are loads! Everything from bows to staves to pistols to giant 2 handed weapons). Then you choose a travel mode (Flight, Speed, or Acrobatics) which is how you get around. Creation is strong, and you can spend a lot of time making the exact hero you want (I think I spent almost an hour)!
There is a major stray from your typical MMO in their combat system which will be good for many and, I am sure, bad for just as many. The combat system follows a more combo/interactive style. So for example, my char, the bow wielding mental maniac shoots his bow with right mouse, can charge a shot by holding right mouse, bashes with the bow with left mouse, and has several combos revolving around this.Read more ›
Sometime ago SOE, DC comics, and comic genius Jim Lee all go together and said "Hey lets make a DC MMO!" When I first heard of this I was very skeptical, after experiencing what was essentially Marvel online, Champions Online. Trailers surfaced and they were pretty intense, but hey that's what trailers are supposed to be like. After a while threads about it started surfacing on the Age of Conan forums praising the need for skill in the game and its lack of auto attacking. After experiencing past MMOs that featured heavily instanced areas, lack luster combat, and an isolated feeling despite being an MMO I decided to keep my distance and just try out Cataclysm, another good xpac by Blizzard. Being a DC and all around comic geek I found the pull of DCUO being harder and harder to resist. A few weeks later give or take and after a terrible day at work of superheroic proporations I felt DCUO would be perfect therapy.
One thing CO had was the character customization that game and Aion was had crazy character customization. In the beginning part of the game I felt the character start was a little bit of a let down. You either choose between small medium and large templates and then you decided if youre a villain or hero.Read more ›
