MMO on a console?

Normally I am not a fan of DC, I am a Marvel man and if this game were set in the Marvel universe it would be a solid 11 this game has a lot of content to offer from raids to pvp to stories that involve all of the DC people others may know and love, (I didn't even know Wonder woman was an Amazon before this game.) Anyway there is a pretty in depth character creator unlike some of the pre class systems (WOW) and then you get two roles to bounce between as you deem fit each with there own bonuses to your class. not to mention they each get there own power bar. When showing off your look you can lock it so it never changes no matter what gear you get or show off a mash up of all your favorite gear. PVP servers have the most people and the world isn't huge but it packs alot of stuff in it and I think the 15 bucks a month is fair. Plus they are getting Green Lantern DLC this summer so ring up and come party.

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.

Several things

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.
