1up: A wasted opportunity to bring a quality MMO to console gamers.
Some part of the review does have a point, Am not really feeling any story, i just feel like another Hero doing quests. Despite that i enjoy the game very much, the PVP is excellent and the gameplay is damn good. Same with every MMO, you have to give it time to build up i mean look at the biggest MMO right now which is WoW am sure it had plenty of faults, and many reviewers nitpicking minors issues but they were all solved later on, WoW became what it is today after a few years of patches and update to encourage and draw them to stay longer because of more things that they could do. DC may not have a lot of things to do early on the game except a few alerts, and PVP but the endgame content is damn packed at level 30. Hopefully the level cap will be higher and we'll be introduced to more contents.
The games is just fine... And N4PS3G cared to post this review..
So, you are implying that only positive reviews for PS3 games should be posted? Opinion nazi much?
I'm enjoying the crap out of DCUO.
The negative attitude some people have towards this game is an anomoly if ever there was one. When you start comparing the combat as not GOW3 or Bayonetta caliber, it's time to lay off the hatorade and slap yourself back into reality. Bayonetta & GOW3 aren't open worlds, aren't online, aren't customizable, aren't team based, they don't branch, they don't EVOLVE. They're linear, short and not without their own narrative issues. Combat comparison is out of context. Comparing it to Marvel Ultimate Alliance is more apt. WOW had many issues when it launched, but the community wouldn't let it die. The fact this game already has a loyal fanbase that are vocal in disagreeing with many of these reviews (read 1up's comments section) is telling in that maybe it really is better than its closest peers (Marvel Ultimate Alliance, X-Men Legends, City of Heroes), critics be damned. If the community likes it, who cares what the C+ = 40% metacritic crowd thinks. They're not the ones you'll be playing with.
The combat is pretty diverse, if you ask me, as there's tonnes of combos and powers to learn. Each role(tank, controller healer) has to be learnt to succeed. Timing is also imperative to combat, controllers have to unleash their stuns at the right moment and same for the healers. The only real problem with the game is a lack of polish in a number of areas but, since it's an MMO, that should be fixed in time. Love the game, love the universe...
Honestly, I've tried WOW over and over through various trials and I still didn't get addicted to it. Honestly it's quite boring and I don't see why people are so hooked to it. I have several friends that play it religiously and it doesn't make sense to me. Of course I'm not knocking on anyone who plays it, but I just think it's vastly overrated.
I disagree with 1up's score the game deserves a b+ at the very least.
Was going to get it for pc will give it a miss now cheers.
