If you haven't played this game then hurry up and download it. It's FREE to try and I guarantee you will be hooked.
In the beginning you must choose your morality(Hero or Villain), character presets and superpower class then complete a brief 10 minute tutorial to get you geared up for beating people in the face. After the tutorial you land in one of two cities: Gotham or Metropolis. From here you help your iconic superhero/villain mentor complete various missions either by flight, acrobat or superspeed.
The customization of character styles is fantastic... you can change everything from head to toe including 3 customizable preset colour regions on each piece of gear. There are thousands of different styles to collect which also adds points to to a 'Feat' achievement system which assist your character in improving their combat statistics/abilities. Also the variation in abilities/traits allows every single player in the game to be completely unique.
There are 1P, 2P 4P and 8P missions in which you can queue for via a 'Duty Tab' and immediately begin fighting along your favourite Heroes or Villains from the DC comics. The PvE content will keep you very entertained for many hours. In the 4P and 8P instances you must have various support classed teammates in order to complete them or else you will all die. The four classes are: Tank, Healer, Controller(restores power for casting abilities/superpowers) and Damage Dealer.
If PvP is more your thing, you can play in a parallel phase of Metropolis or Gotham where you can focus on fighting players of the opposite morality. There are also various Arena maps to queue for in the Duty Tab where you can put your tactics, skill and ego to the test from 1v1 instances to 8v8 maps including game modes such as: Capture and hold, King of the Hill, Capture the Flag and all out Deathmatches.
-Instant action gameplay
-Must use skill, teamplay and tactics to survive
-Amazing character development/customization
-Fantastic endgame content
-Character level is based on overall level of equipment rather than experience gained. You cannot buy/farm your way to the top, you have to earn it by defeating enemies. This game is definitely not an AFKer's MMORPG
-You have a home base which you can customize with furniture, teleporters and create/store modifications for your character's gear
-Very interactive co-operative gameplay; you can create a League(guild/clan) with an easy to manage rank/filter system
-You will become addicted
-Paying for the various DLC's can become costly, I recommend paying for the SOE All Access membership which will give you content access to most of their games such as Planetside 2 and the Everquest games.
-Newer players may find it more difficult to matchmake instances because higher tiered players are commonly running the high-end raids/alerts. I would recommend joining a good league as soon as possible so they can assist you if you need help.
-Thor and Spiderman are from Marvel comics so you won't find them in DCUO :(
-The general game interface is a standard console-like interface from Playstation or Xbox making the controls a bit more awkward from the crossover between console versus PC. This game is also available on PS3 and PS4 so that is most likely the reason you may prefer to connect a controller to your PC although I use a mouse and keyboard and can play just fine... you can always customize all the buttons on your keyboard/controller to suit your liking.
-If you don't play this game you are missing out on a lot of fun.
