I got into the DC Universe Online beta in mid-November. I must confess I haven’t spent a ton of time with it, what with all the other goings on in the gaming universe. But what I have played I’ve enjoyed. It’s a great “I have 10 minutes free, what can I do?” game. Jump in, pummel some baddies and jump out.
It remains to be seen if there’s enough here to get me to subscribe, but we’ll see.
Here’s the thing you have to know about DC Universe Online. It isn’t an MMORPG. It’s a MMO action game. You’re almost certainly going to want to play it with a gamepad since you’re constantly having to move the camera to lock on to different enemies while mashing buttons to pull off combo attacks.
Put it this way: if a “Hit Counter” (think Devil May Cry) turns you off, you’re not going to want to play this one.
Now that the NDA is lifted I’ll try to focus a bit more on it, maybe grab some screenshots or a video to show how gameplay flows. Also keep an eye on ChannelMassive since I know Eric has been playing this one a lot more than I have, and is enjoying it a lot.
