5.0 out of 5 stars Console mmo 21 Feb. 2011
By Gamias
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Well, this game is not the best mmorpg out there but definitely it is the best choice u have for console...
PVP in this game is fun... especially in pvp servers, The servers are populated and u can always open pvp, or join arenas - and instances without any difficulties or long waiting time.
Even though it is not the best mmorpg out there it is still lots of fun to play and it is available in ur PS3 (i enjoy more playing in my 52 inches tv relaxed in my sofa ... instead of my pc).
In order to chat you will definitely need to connect a keyboard to ur ps3 or have a headset. During lvling up to 30 it wont give u the feeling of mmo because except open pvp u wont communicate with other people this much but once u join an active guild this problems are solved :P

3.0 out of 5 stars Good short term fun 24 Feb. 2011
Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
DC Universe is a great deal of fun.

It's an MMO in the loosest sense of the word though.

The game is very much engineered towards solo play due to the crossover to PS3. Console owners, even if they have a keyboard attached, will be presented with the image of a keyboard covering the entire screen when wishing to chat. As a result seeing someone say anything in chat is a rarity.

The group instances are fun however, even if no one ever says anything.

Despite the lack of communication the game is very fun to play. The combat system is very action oriented and although it can be a bit confusing at first due to the large amount of skill types to choose from, it becomes clear after a while.

There is a lot of repeatable quests/instances to do if you wish to shoot for the best of the best equipment, but the long term appeal of the game is debateable as it's so tedious to create a new character and go through the first 1-10 levels all over with all the tutorial missions, which you can't switch off, and the exploration missions with dull cutscenes which you can't skip.

In summary, it's fun for a good couple of weeks. But you'll reach level cap quickly and unless you're a big fan of the DC World you won't be able to justify staying past the first free month.

1.0 out of 5 stars Amazon rip off customers! 1 April 2011
Fun: 1.0 out of 5 stars   
Amazon and eBay are letting these games sell 2nd hand!

I bought one, now I find out that the game and the code are one and the same, which means as soon as the game has been loaded to one ps3, it cannot run on another ps3, making the game useless for all other ps3's!

So, in essence, amazon are letting honest trusting customers get ripped off!

All this, from dc universe, who aren't happy to take a monthly fee, they just want more and more, but they'll miss out only subscription!

4.0 out of 5 stars First Flight 8 April 2011
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
Let's get this straight - I'm not a big gamer. My only MMORG experience before was with WOW - a game from which DC Universe has clearly learnt a lot. Overall I've found it to be a very accessible and entertaining game and if you're a fan of DC an essential experience. The simple thrill of flying over Metropolis, discovering the Bat-Signal, or fighting alonside one of the plethora of heroes is excellent. The game is not without some flaws. The camera system isn't perfect and, yes, you do have to keep paying. Being online it means some lengthy updates (why does this only happen when you really want to play?)But overall the quality of the graphics and the ease of the interface compensate for the flaws.

It's not as good as Arkham Asylum (what is?), so if you go in with those expectations you will be let down. However if your looking for a fun online game experience that allows you to play out your superhero fantasies this is for you.

1.0 out of 5 stars Just not good enough. 8 Feb. 2011
By M. H.
Verified Purchase
Fun: 2.0 out of 5 stars   
Wow, where to start? What a wasted opportunity! As a long-time player of City of Heroes I was looking forward to this game immensely. But, man, am I disappointed.

Firstly... I have no objection to paying a monthly subscription fee for a highly polished, bug-free game, with an excellent online community and great character development.

Sadly though, this game has none of those. I will try to explain better...

Bugs. This game is riddled with them. Yesterday I attempted a mission where, as I soon learned, the enemies were invisible. I died. Then in the same mission (after a reboot to fix the invisibles), my character got attacked whilst interacting with an objective, and got stuck in that position. So could not fight back or move... I died again. That's just two quick examples - There are dozens of big bugs in this game.

And I resent that because I am effing well paying to play this game every month - even though it's not effing finished!!!

Online Community. This is, in my opinion, the biggest failure of this game. Having played CoH and other MMORPGs I was expecting to make some superficial friendships that would last hours or even days. Sadly this wasn't to be. I bought a bluetooth keyboard to make typing easier but this just wasn't the problem. The problem was the terrible chat interface. It is truly awful. Someone messaged me in-game to ask for help. I tried to make a team and invite them but I couldn't do it! So I tried to Private Message them back... And couldn't do that either!!! That really sums this game up - the controls are so counter-intuitive it's painful to play it. There really is a poor community spirit on here. CoH had a great community and most players played in teams.
