DC Universe Online Review (GamesRadar)

Is it a bird? Is it a plane? Nah, it’s just our hopes for DC Universe Online falling a bit from the heights we envisioned during our hands-on last month. The final product still packs a super-powered punch, but the thrill is fleeting. The quests quickly get repetitive. The content may not warrant playing beyond…
