I used to play MMOs, not too many games compare to this. Great graphics, good story and really fun to play. Amazing customization and character development. My favorite part is no matter what kinda armor you wear, you can change the look of it......also being able to beat down super heroes/heroines is really fun.
First thing I want to say is: Stop crying all of you who can't rent this or are awestruck by the concept of a monthly subscription. This game is an MMORPG, and the majority of MMORPGs that require you to do more than click a "Free Download" button have subscription fees. That or they had a subscription fee in the past (I.E. LOTRO). Talking about Xbox Live Gold and MMORPG sub fees is comparing apples to oranges.
If you don't like sub fees, MMORPGs probably aren't the type of game for you. Just rent a single-player or multi-player via internet connection RPG. Not a MASSIVELY MULTIPLAYER ONLINE ROLEPLAYING GAME.
On to the game:
Most MMORPGs that are currently running are either ancient (WoW, FFXI, Eve, etc.) or they suck.
DCUO is decent, which is far beyond what I can say for the majority of MMORPGs released in the past several years. It's got an interesting storyline, albeit lacking some depth, and the more traditional superhero or villain aspect of this game is nice in comparison to Champions Online. The gameplay is fairly smooth, and the graphics are pretty solid.
On the drawbacks, the level-cap is entirely too small. This is what ruins mmorpgs for me, personally. I find end-game content to be boring or lacking in many departments. This game is no exception to that. The only real option at the level cap is to start another character, and the "fun" in starting a new character quickly diminishes before even reaching max level a second time.
As most people will point out this game has some flaws such as the level cap being 30, repetiveness, ect. but what game doesent have a few drawbacks.
What they don't tell you is what this game got right, they let you fight along side some of the greatest hero's, and villans ever known. the character creation has great depth, and your character is extreamly customizable. The missions are hard, but mmo's are made to be a group effort anyway. The level cap is 30 and is gainible in a couple days of playing. However after the level cap you are able to purchase iconic battle armor which not only proves your dominance, but also helps you as you team up with other players for end game missions, raids, duos, alerts, and pvp. There are two world types PvE, and PvP, pve stands for player vs enviorment inwhich two players of diffrent morals (hero/villan) must toggle their pvp flag to fight each other. And PvP, in a pvp server it's kill or be killed, if a character of different morals see's you he will be able to attack no matter the diffrence in levels.If you are thinking about buying this game, please note you can buy from the store, or download off of playstation's online store, the game comes with a one month free trial, but is $15 each additional month. That's about all I can think of to write about.
