Summary: This is the short of it. The game is now available as free to play AND free to download. There are different memberships. Legendary is all features for $15.00 a month plus tax. Premium is trimmed bonuses but you only have to pay $5.00 one time to net it. And then there's free which has more limitations, but it's free.
"Good game, even if you aren't the super comic book fan."
17 February 2011
Pros: It's an MMO!! Based on comic book characters but so what if you don't know them all. Unbelievable flexibility in the appearance of your hero or villain. PvP and PvE updates every month. Game is new so it can only get better.
Cons: Still buggy. Loss of sound in places. Menus are slow to appear when you summon them. Some doors resetting in playfields and locking out members. Not much GM support or contact in PS3 version. Rated T for Teen, not too gritty.
Conclusion: Considering its a beta its excellent.. Not perfect but did improve in the short time i used. All round good fun but the monthly charge seems abit steep. Nice customisations but with a monthly charge i expect extra to be added at semi regular intervals and for there not be extra charges for content added at a later date.
Conclusion: OK, I'm giving this game five stars because this is a great experience on PS3. This MMO really shows what the future is like for PS3 MMORPG's and I have to say, it looks promising. First of all, it has mainstream graphics, physics is better than average, gameplay/storyline is excellent (fighting well known villians is great) and the opportunity to become the next legend is quite something.
Conclusion: DC Universe was a title I originally intended to miss, until my step-dad downloaded the Beta and I saw him playing. It looked like an action game so I gave it a go myself and "wow!". The game doesn't feel like a standard MMO at all, I was expecting City of Heroes/Villains or World of Warcraft with tights... but unlike your standard MMO the combat is thick, fast and exciting.
Conclusion: i got this little gem through a recommendation of a friend and now im hooked.the amount of customisation of your hero/villain will keep you entertained for a long time then the actual game itself is huge with so many diffrent looking online characters with diffrent powers to play along side and fight if you want.a truly great game and very addictive when u get going!a must buy for any super hero fan.
Conclusion: what a game if you love comics and games ur gonna love this, monthly payments is the only draw back but hey what else r u gonna spend ur money on. Also it should be on all the consoles instead of just pc. i had to buy mine pre-own because it was sold out everywhere i went to and it was the last pre-own copy. WORTH EVERY PENNY.
