There's a pretty decent cast here, although, lets face, it, DC heros are kinda lame...
I was really disappointed with the graphics. I somehow remember this game looking better and/or having better character designs, but man, the game looks terrible and the heroes designs aren't too good either. Seriously, what is wrong with Wonder Woman?! How did that model get approved? It's not even close to proportional.
I honestly think, this would have been an easy fix had the game been cell shaded to look like a comic (and had better designs in general)
But, there's gameplay too. This isn't bad as much as it is bland. Punch, kick, power move. It feels a bit stiff. Moves aren't too spectacular. Levels are decent, transitions are cool. Story has a decent length, is about as good as you could expect it to be (not good) but can't really complain about it. The other challenges and stuff in the game are cool, but tedious.
Characters all feel the same. You could pass a little time just to experience it, but it's honestly nothing special, and a bit disappointing. I enjoyed the MK reboot quite a bit; this feels like a step backward.
If you play these games for the the storyline, don't bother renting. It took me 2 hours to beat the storyline, and unless you have enough free time to sit and play this game for days, upon days you won't be able to land more then a 5 hit combo. Very disappointing.
Terrific graphics! And a great story to come along

Well they sure have done a masterpiece with this game, I am just frustrated about two people I thought would be present. Starfire and Bestboy. :) Either way, even the characters I haven't heard kick-aszs! Like black Adam.
