Weak

Not worth the rental

For those complaining about how you cannot rent this game, you need to stop and think for a bit. In order to play the game you have to have an online account. One account per game. This system just does not work with rented games.

The game ends up being button mashing fun for a few hours. After a few days you are at the level cap of 30 with not much to do except make another hero/villian and do it all over again.

One of the staples of MMO games is missing from this game, depth. Quests are boring, game is mostly button mashing and pvp is more of the same.

IMO not worth the 50 bucks plus another 15 every month.

Giving it a 4 due to the looks. Lacking points in gameplay, controler layout and depth.

Ok first off, just cause you cant rent this game doesnt matter. Its free to play, download, and enjoy. Im a huge comic book junky and even more so a DC fan more so than Marvel. Still waiting for the epic day when DC vs Marvel. Anyways, if your not familiar with pc type mmos than get ready to adjust. First off the communications system in the game is just awful. There is so much depth here you will feel right at home with the environment. The DC characters look fairly good, character creation is fun, and I enjoy the size and scope of the game all together. Oh did I mention is f2p? 2 char slots, 3 mentors a piece evil/good, not unlimited char specs, ex: no green lantern, only 3 different travel abilities (speed(the flash), acrobatic, flying) to choose for your characters. Still, thats not bad for f2p. I cant say enough. Create a hero/villain, interact with DC's heros/villains, visit Gotham, Metropolis and more, and oh BTW its FREE! I hope this review is informative and gets everyone playing this awesome game. Thanks so much for reading, see you in DCU.

I downloaded this game on my playstation 3 3 days ago and i have to say I'm impressed! They started the game free to play but the download takes a couple hours but it is soo worth it. anyway f2p get two character slots and certain limitations. premium is if you spend more than 5 dollars on purchasable merchandise and 8 character slots and legendary is the 14.99 a month but you get full access to everything including free DLC and like 32 slots for heros or villians. The only thing i can complain about is the login queue. having only one us ps3 pve and pvp server makes it a high population sometimes laggy but not bad and long load screens and login lines. it's free so download it and check it out!
