DC Universe was a title I originally intended to miss, until my step-dad downloaded the Beta and I saw him playing. It looked like an action game so I gave it a go myself and "wow!".
The game doesn't feel like a standard MMO at all, I was expecting City of Heroes/Villains or World of Warcraft with tights... but unlike your standard MMO the combat is thick, fast and exciting.

I played as a similar character to Batman. Since I'm not a superhero fan he's pretty much the only character I can stomach. I then customised the character how I wanted and once happy with him I entered the game.
I woke up on a strange ship being talked to by a women called Oracle, she hacked into me somehow and is sat somewhere talking to me, guiding me through the ship as I smash robots to pieces.
As you fight your way across the ship it pops up little helpful messages to help you learn the controls and get used to combat.

The combat starts out pretty basic, Square is Melee, Triangle is Ranged. It gets very deep and interesting pretty quickly and starts to feel a lot less like an MMO and much more like an action beat-em-up.
As soon as you level up you, get your first skill. My first skill was a Grappling Hook that stuns enemies and drags them next to you. To do this all you have to do is hold L2 to access your skill bar, and press Square. It feels natural and you don't have to think about it in combat, you're not even scanning your keyboard for the F7 key. It's great. Then when you level up further you also get Combos similar to Hack & Slash games.
Between the skills, combos and the speed of combat, it creates an action packed experience that makes you feel like your playing a very deep brawler.

Outside of the combat system is the standard MMORPG stuff of grabbing loot and customising your characters appearance and stats... which is where it shines once again. The Stat system on the equipment is easy to understand and when you hover over a piece of gear in your inventory it shows you clearly how much you would gain or lose from equipping the item. No maths involved or having to dig through fan sites and forums to find out what a vaguely named stat actually does.
Once you find something that is better, you go to equip it and you get a pop up window asking if you want to allow the piece of equipment to change how your character looks... You can equip new gear without sacrificing your characters aesthetics? Why the hell don't all MMO games do this! The guys behind DCUO obviously understand it's important to some players to have their characters look good, as well as being hard.

I can't comment on the world or the characters, I don't know many of the DC characters or locations. But in reference to other comments about the voice acting being poor, they are speaking a load of rubbish... well it's an all-star cast and honestly, it really pays off.
You have Adam Baldwin playing Superman (Full Metal Jacket, Mass Effect 2, Halo 3). Kevin Conroy, Mark Hamill and Arleen Sorkin returning to their roles of Batman, The Joker and Harley Quinn (respectively) from Batman: Arkham Asylum. Will Wheaton as Robin (Stand By Me, Star Trek: Next Generation, Fallout: New Vegas and Everquest 2). Michelle Forbes as Circe (Half-Life 2, True Blood, Kalifornia). James Marsters as Lex Luther (Smallville, Buffy The Vampire Slayer, Superman/Doomsday). And a whole load more.

Overall the gameplay, controls, cast and features are great. Topped off with the fact that it's an MMO, as well as an MMO that actually suites a console... well that just makes it an astounding achievement.
Despite the fact I have no idea who the characters are, I was still able to enjoy this game and will certainly be enjoying it on release.

 very addictive game

i have playstation plus and been on this for a few days now, it does take awhile to install from download but when started its great as it is beta there are still a few bugs but none that would put you off the game, its what you would expect from an mmo game good fun loads of superheros n villians on the lose although you dont play as a real superhero eg batman, superman etc. u do make your own and have one as a mentor loads to customize on your character. very addictive game and a must for any dc fan i will be buying it and as for the on-line subscription who cares if u have ever played an mmo u will know it costs alot for the developers to make the worlds are ever changing as well as characters and other stuff, well worth it

 Loving the BETA

 The beta

OK, I'm giving this game five stars because this is a great experience on PS3. This MMO really shows what the future is like for PS3 MMORPG's and I have to say, it looks promising. First of all, it has mainstream graphics, physics is better than average, gameplay/storyline is excellent (fighting well known villians is great) and the opportunity to become the next legend is quite something. The only down side to the beta is well, it's a beta, of course they will have bugs/problems but fortunately they have released a 3 GB patch so in total this game is 19 GB. The bad points after the patch are NPC distance animation seems to be too close, hearing the same voices on certain missions shows the budget for this game and some parts feels like I'm playing a PSX Marvel game like how you pick up any items is always above the head. That being said, I don't think this game deserves four stars because it's the beta at the moment and I'm pretty sure when it's released it will be even better.

 DC Universe online.... I guess its not a bad MMO

I wrote a long review on here was interruped so play didnt save it so I can not be bothered to write a full review again sort it out play your site lacks sometimes anyway

DC Universe Online

Really good game graphics great gameplay decent bit button mashy character detailing and creating is great to very in depth and creative missions good bit tedious at times though still is great to run into or side along DC characters

Game has major crashing and freezeing problems apparantly SoE have even dropped a hotfix update to fix freezeing issues which is not kl but yeah game crashs way to much like everytime I play it and its begining to annoy me truth be told

Subscription is what lets the game down its certainly no WOW and its not worth 10 pounds sterling a month which I am paying at moment for this game that crashs all the time

Game can be addictive but soon gets frustrating when in need of a soda and not having any when fighting a boss also game has glitchs a lot to and why the hell are common enemys like science police things so strong I find a boss easier to fight in terms of battle

Menus are not so good to and bottom left cornet chat box doesnt even display fully seems stretch and im running in hdmi 1080 full res with a sony hdmi cable also takes time to get to grips with menus and features also havent figured out a lot myself yet

I expected more from this game only bought it few days ago for 11.93 pounds and it was cheap but oh my the subscription isnt!

3 out of 5 stars good game buy it and try it but be prepaired to pay a fortune for this also make sure you use it enough get your moneys worth if the game would not freeze so much and have such a steep subscription id of rated higher
