Well-balanced, well-told, somewhat hackneyed and unoriginal in its storyline, but overall very fun. This game probably won't change your mind about the genre, but it does show what a polished product looks like, and it rewards you for both understanding the limits of your character and using the environmental assets available. Fortunately, it's also not purely a combo-stringing game, so you won't have to worry about some punk nephew memorizing one long series of button mashes and wiping the walls with you.

i like the game however i am disappointed that u cannot play as nightwing, hawkgirl ect in story mode. i liked aquaman and deathstroke but it felt just like playing mortal kombat but with superheroes. the story line was decent but it focused too much on superman and batman making the other heroes second rate i have dc universe verses mortal kombat and its fun but it has a mediocker story line next time have all dc heroes available including martian manhunter
