Daybreak Game Co. has created 'super' release


May 03, 2016

    First of all, I want to stress: I love superheroes, villains, comics and all things Marvel or DC. So when developer and publisher Daybreak Game Company decided to bring the free-to-play massive multiplayer online game DC Universe Online to Xbox One, I jumped at the opportunity to play it. Although I had long ago downloaded the game on my PC via Steam, I never got around to trying it — until now, on my Xbox One, my preferred gaming system.    
    Players create an original hero or villain, who will interact with the heroes and villains found within the DC Comics universe. Players will find themselves a member of the Justice League or The Society, depending on the faction they choose. Like other MMOs, the game includes a leveling system, raids, inventory, powers and an endgame progression.
    The game is very heavy on content, and gamers will find plenty of options when creating their own personal character to their liking. The game also has many powers to choose from, including travel powers like flying, acrobatics and super speed. Players have ranged and melee attacks, but the two used together will create interesting, powerful combos that will compliment the players abilities.
    Unlike other MMOs, players will not be forced to group up and will have the opportunity to access the level cap by going solo if they so choose. Fighting is very balanced and welcomes both solo gamers and groups. DC Universe Online allows everything from fire to ice powers, and even more traditional weapons like bows and guns.
    Although the game is very entertaining and pleasing to look at, it does suffer from a few nuisances. The camera angles can be very frustrating, at times. Tight areas or times when the player has to move really quickly in enclosed areas are a bit annoying, but become bearable with repeated gameplay. Also, since the game is a free-to-play model, some powers and items are locked away until you pay actual money. Probably the most annoying issue I’ve come across is the long queue that players who do not have a premium or upgraded account have to deal with. Once, I had to wait a few hours just to get in without an upgraded account.
    Even with the few issues found in DC Universe Online, players cannot beat the cost of free and should have no reason to at least try the game out. If you are a fan of comics, this game is a must-play. With a well balanced fighting system and a plethora of powers and abilities, Daybreak Game Company has created a super game.
