Comic book loving MMO fans have been waiting a good long while (I’d say patiently, but I have a feeling that hasn’t generally been the case) for Sony Online Entertainment’s DC Universe Online, and at the end of the year, they’ll finally know if it was worth the wait. Our own Patrick “MMOs? More like Meh-Meh-NOs” Klepek was recently given some hands-on time with the superhero-charged title, and came away particularly impressed by what the game is doing to redefine MMO combat:
“There's no cool down, no waiting. It's not melee combat on the level of something like Devil May Cry, but in moments, I felt more engaged with the on-screen action than I've been with any other MMO. Outside of melee, DC Universe Online plays more like a traditional MMO -- yes, with cool downs and all. Simply having melee feel dynamic and real-time, however, went a long way with me.”
You can find out plenty more about the game in Patrick’s full hands-on preview of DC Universe Online.
