    This isn't the sort of MMO that asks you to park for hours on end several nights in a row. It's more of a co-operative or competitive multiplayer action game, perfect for short intense visits. And because your character doesn't sport rows of tiny icons for a thousand different skills, DC Universe is also perfect for less frequent visits.

    An exciting new direction for MMOs that's plenty of fun already and should only get better with a few patches under its utility belt.

    they've pulled off two impressive feats. First off, they've successfully launched a top-shelf superhero MMOG which has been a subgenre that has historically been a weak contender in the overall market. And secondly, they've managed to successfully incorporate action game mechanics into this title in such a way that it will not alienate gamers that are used to a slower pace, but will still deliver pulse-pounding action on par with many single player games.

    If you're a fan of action, MMOs, or comic books, and if you're looking to commit a lot of time to a single game, DC Universe Online will not disappoint you.

Beta tested, put up with tons of bugs and glitches for over a year, paid a subscription, called someone a homo in /shout and was banned for seven days. Don't play this game if you want to be able to speak freely. Oh and waited on hold for 30 minutes just to be told that they charged me for three months and then wouldn't do anything for me.

The game was obviously designed as a platform game and ported to the PC. The control scheme is very difficult to get accustomed to and half the time I can't see where I am going or who I am fighting because of the poor camera angles. I feel very similar towards this game as I did with Final Fantasy XIV. Maybe I should just stay away from these types of MMORPGs that are designed for console systems. Full Review »
