DC Universe Online Review
DC Universe Online is a free-to-play MMORPG game by Daybreak Game Company. In this game, you can create a unique superhero and fight the powers of evil or join the dark side to become the best supervillain. During the game, you can fight or work with such famous characters as Batman, Lex Luthor, Wonder Woman, Superman, and others. You can download DC Universe Online for your PC, PS3, PS4, and Xbox One.
DC Universe Online game is designed using the outdated Unreal Engine 3 technology. The 4K remaster is very sharp, but lack a bit of saturation and depth. Same goes to physics that are quite unrealistic. On the other hand, it looks good enough for such a diverse MMO.
DC Universe Online gameplay offers you to create your character. You can choose sex, type of skin and create combinations of various clothes and accessories. After that, you have to pick your faction. You can play as a superhero and as a supervillain.
You can use multiple skills. Though there are dozens of them, they are all divided into few categories. The Control power allows you to take control over crowds of enemies to make them inactive. This skill helps to win some time and kill targets before they kill you. The Healer makes your character able to heal his partners during team missions. You can also choose a specific type of transportation skill, such as flying, gliding, flash-running, etc. You also have to select the preferable fighting style of your character to upgrade it with corresponding items.
During the game, you can complete various solo quests, such as saving people from danger and fighting with foes. After completing a few tasks in a row, you get access to boss-fights. You can fight them on your own or team up with other players. Team boss-fights are rather difficult. It’s important to say in this DC Universe Online review that you are better to play with the same team every time because random players tend to fail productive cooperation.
As all MMO’s DC Universe Online latest version is rather repetitive. All questlines offer you to open new areas, kill different bosses, earn points of experience, and participate in raids when your character’s level is high enough.
This game is similarly comfortable to play with both keyboard-plus-mouse and gamepad layouts. If you play for a hero with guns, it’s more convenient to use a mouse for aiming, while manual fighting feels more authentic with a gamepad grip.
Replay Value 4.5/5
DC Universe Online full game requires 35GB free storage space. It means that the game includes tons of unlockable content. However, this fact doesn’t mean that this game is different from all other MMOs in which you have to complete hundreds of similar missions.
The Bottom Line
DC Universe Online is a cool game for fans of DC superheroes. It presents a classic MMO gameplay combines with features of superheroes. This game huge and developers never stop adding new items, skills, and locations, so many weeks of gameplay are guaranteed.
