“DC Universe Online (abbreviated DCUO) is a free-to-play
action combat massive multiplayer online game set in
the DC Universe of DC Comics. Developed by Daybreak Game
Company and co-published by Daybreak Game Company and WB
Games, the game was released on January 11, 2011.”
Based on the wikipedia description, DC Universe might sound like just another
blood-letting, destructive, killing game, but that is not what we found. DC
Universe is actually a family-oriented game. The player can create their own
super hero and then choose a mentor from a list of DC Comics heros like Superman,
Batman, etc. etc.
And the player can choose to be a hero or villain, male or female, plus dozens
of other attributes, such as, body type, personality, movement mode, and super
The player is involved in incredible battles with super powered opponents. Many
of the story lines come directly from DC Comics pages which is sure to jog the
memories of mom and dad. Many super heroes and villains are involved, such as,
Batman, Robin, Flash, Green Lantern, Wonder Woman, Joker, etc. etc.
Best of all, this is the type of game that does NOT really attract the aggressive,
bad-mouthing crowd that are found in the more violent games, such as, Worl Of
Warcraft, Code Of Honor, Grand Theft Auto, Eve, and others.
