    Artistically it's a bit gaudy. [Feb 2014, p.87]

    DC Universe Online lacks the ‘pow’ of the properties that it’s inspired by, but it’s a decent enough MMO with some solid ideas and a strong following. As a free download, it’s hard not to recommend – even if you only intend to give it a try.

    This game is garbage, It has some good ideas yes but executes them poorly. The graphics are rubbish and thats a compliment. The gam play isThis game is garbage, It has some good ideas yes but executes them poorly. The graphics are rubbish and thats a compliment. The gam play is boring and repetitive, after you leave the first part of the game and exit the police station. When you fight the weird monkeys on the beach, you will agree with what Im saying. After you fight these, you've literally seen the combat system in the whole game. Same few enemies throughout the game and its just as bad as a Spider Man movie game. I think the games powers, well ok the flight mode is kind of cool. Give it half an hour and that gets boring too. All your going to do with flight, Is fly on top of a building and fly around before you get bored. I wanted to be able to use this power by grabbing someone and throwing them off a building or flying through a building or something. Basically DC Universe in a nutshell is killing bad graphical enemies, that are repetitive, story is lousy, and overall I would say save your hard drive space. Even if you have a spare 480GB Save the space, You never know what it could come in use for. Full Review »

    This game annoys me. The heroes/villains that are created can act about 4 different ways, giving them no definitive character. The combat isThis game annoys me. The heroes/villains that are created can act about 4 different ways, giving them no definitive character. The combat is repetitive and there is no fun in buying new weapons. They all look stupid, as does the armour. Missions are as follows:
    Go somewhere
    Fight 10-25 enemies the same way
    Steal/administer something
    Put something somwhere
    Fight a crappy boss
    I dislike this game. It could have been so much better.

Unfortunately the devs are unwilling to bring the game to its full potential which keeps the game from being good. Apart from the lag and connection issues, and trust me there's plenty of those in this game, my biggest gripe is the poor decision making by the devs. Almost a year ago they decided to implement the counter mechanics unto the PvE side and since then it has been a fail and frustrating every time you play. At one point they where so eager to further increase the deserter penalty that it cause a whole fiasco over something dumb. The last DLC's haven't been that great at all. Legendary membership seems to not be worth it since most of the perks are useless and theirs work around for the restrictions for free and premium members. Overall you can try for free but if you want to play a good MMO then this is not it. Full Review »
