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.Read more ›
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!
DC Universe is the first MMO game to grace the PS3 & I for one was excited by that as I've always fancied the idea but never had the PC to cope with one. The concept of a monthly subscription is one well known to PC gamers but not so much console gamers...hence the moaning but as I said above you dont have to buy the game if its not your bag.
Anyway to the game...ITS HUGE! Ok there is a lengthy set up process depending on your connection. It took me about 2 hours or so just to get to the point where I was ready to roll my character. The process of 'rolling' my hero took me 40 mins simply due to the options available i.e. Hero of Villain, Speed, acrobatics or flight, powers, weapons, skin type, clothing etc etc etc etc. Then when you are done choose a name and away you go!
Did I mention the game is huge....well it is HUGE. So much to do, so many places to visit, people to meet etc. I admit to being hopelessly lost & clueless the first few hours I played but once i got into it & started levelling up it all fell into place. You can join a PVE server (do the missions & fight just enemies) or a PVP server (the missions, fight other players as well as enemies). The earlier missions are fairly straight forward but as you progress you will almost certainly need to hook up with a few more players as it does get tougher to beat the bosses. Having not played anything like this before the only thing I can lien it to is the original Crackdown game on the 360 except bigger better & populated with loads and loads of other players.Read more ›
It's a model already tried and tested, AKA City of heroes/Villains, Champions Online etc. Nothing much has changed, other than the fact, real existing comic heroes (Superman, batman)You choose a side, Hero or Villain, the customization to begin with is quite limited, but the further you play into the game, the more you unlock, thus letting you to create in time, your perfect hero. I have no doubt, new console gamers to this type of game, will have endless fun, for those played a subscription game before.. Maybe not.
Graphics are pretty cartoony, as you would expect, it's DC. Story is a bit.. on and off (Opening cinematic is fantastic)
Question most people would ask, are you getting your moneys worth with 9.99 a month on top of it's retail price? Probably not.. But as with any MMO, it will always be updated, new content will be shown, you just have to hope it won't be like other DLC, where you have to pay it, as you're paying subcription already, it should count with that money, fingers crossed.
Overall if you like DC, or the idea of creating your hero and fighting along side thousands online, give it a go (You get a month FREE if it's a brand new copy.. Odds on a month is all you need for most)Might not be your thing if you've played City of heroes, or champions online... It's a all too familiar model.
