Very Good

Down Load on the PSN

DC Universe. Its solid as a f2p MMO. Especially due to the fact that its on the PSN. Whats good here is that its free. Its got some beautiful graphics going on. Voice talent is present. Not sure if Vincent Conroy is Batman or not but I know Mark Hamill is Joker.
All the cast is here. The Lanterns both sides Will and Fear. Lex, Dark Adam, Bane, Killer Crock to name a few. Cyborg, Batgirl, Dr. Fate it is the Universe.
Fighting is straight forward with up close fighters or distance. Both with their own set of combos and influence upon the battlefield. With swords, axes, arrows, duel wielding guns, automatic rifles, or brutes with just their fists.
With status effects, booster effects, and elemental effects from fire, green/yellow constructs, cold to get the flow goin. There is a lot of customization here.
Making either an villain or a hero to the cause is up to you. Picking a mentor based on that preference guides you through what kind of experience you will have in the game. Hero guides are Wonder Woman, Superman, or Batman. Villains are Lex Luthor, Joker, or Cerci.
This is an MMO to be experienced. As a comic book fan, with all the elements of our greatest super heros and villains alike there is little to be let down about. Comic book cut scenes, top notch voice acting, and an original story. Its fun to say the least.
However, with all the good going on here it is an MMO. That being said it does get old. The communication system is a failure although it has gotten better. Its formatted to HD tvs. Without such, its very difficult to read texts. Thus, the communication failures.
With customization abound, hero or villain choices, an original story and free to play. DC Universe is fun...for a while. Poor communication system, relentless on goings of the same fighting, and some minor glitches here and there it does it get old. Hope you at least give it a try. Thanks for your time and game on!

Bad

Subscription Req

The game can be played Free to Play, however the cap for currency is 2000. Which is extremely low. Whatever you do, do not pay for the expansion packs and not get a subscription.

Overall pay to win game. Repetitive in gameplay, however a fun experience.

This game does not compare to other large mmos like, "The Lord of the Rings Online". I strongly suggest looking into The Lord of the Rings, which is a 10 on my rating.

This game is that is an awesome game to play, it has everything you want from a DC game so far I have fought The Joker, Two-Face, Scarecrow,Harley Queen, Bane, Sinestro, Clayface,Bizzaro, Black Adam, Deathstroke and many more and that is just the hero side there is a whole different story lines for villains.Not only can you team up with your friends and fight this villains but in most of them you actually team up with a famous hero. What is even better now is that they made it FREE that's right you can do all this FREE so if you ever wonder what it would be like to fight along side Superman, Batman, or Green Lantern just check it and I promise you will be hooked.
