So about every 10 hours of gameplay I will write a new blog telling you guys what I think about the game and see how it holds up the longer I play it. Let's get started.
The combat of DC Universe is fantastic for an MMO, instead of giving it that World of Warcraft type gameplay where you would simply right click to auto-attack and have a chance to evade in DC those mechanics give you much more control over your character. The game feels more like an action game than an MMO and gives a really nice hack and slash feel to it. In MMOs the gameplay has always been only ''okay'' and most of them would be poor if not an MMO but it's getting closer to single player games quality. The powers are also pretty awesome, giving you a wide range of toys to play with. Dropping a meteor from the sky to pick up and smash guys with, mixing your movement type skills with your weapon of choice, it's all great fun.
Character creation is nice also, although not as good as Champions Online. The menus are a bit cluttered but I found the style I wanted fairly easy and everything was good. You wouldn't have much trouble finding the certain stuff you wanted. The graphics are great for an MMO, standing of top of a building and looks over the city looks great. There are also some pretty bad ass armor and weapon sets found both in game and in the character creator. The city is fairly big from what I could tell and when just walking on the streets instead of flying etc, it looks pretty big.
Legends PVP is also great fun, choosing from a range of super heroes and super villains to play is awesome and it is basically classes based PVP. It is fun and you get to unlock new legends (or ''classes'') as you play. As for traditional PVP I have only played a bit but from what I have it seems like fun. I'm on a PVP server and it gives that really awesome Heroes vs Villains feel. Villains were attacking low level characters at a certain location so the Heroes grouped together to fight the Villains and send them back home.
The missions in the game seem fairly standard from what I can tell, kill these, smash these, disable these, but I have seen some higher level quests and they seem to get better as the game goes along. The games combat feels great and fun as I said so I don't mind beating stuff up because it's fun. Fighting along the DC guys is also pretty awesome, I'm not that into DC but it was still cool to beat up dudes with Superman and Flash.
Well, that's all for now. I will keep you guys updated as I play! Thanks for reading.
