This game is exactly what i expected. Story was a little short compared to most games but given it is a fighting game I'm grateful for a story at all, and a pretty good one at that. I personally love the brawler style a lot, you don't have to know a million insane combos to have a chance, although knowing them will separate the elite from, well, me. Graphics are slightly disappointing, can't decide if it wants to have unbelievable graphics or cartoony graphics. Overall it met all my expectations and is certainly worth a buy if you didn't get the rental right off the bat.
This is the coolest fighting game I have seen yet! Graphics are amazing and the controls are easy and dont have the clunky MK feel to them. The downside is I just got this game around 8pm and was finished with it by midnite. Story mode was shorter than I would have liked but the fact it puts you basically into a movie and gives you a show and a game is awesome! If you are an online buff then this is the game for you. If your looking for single player then you might just want to rent it. Either way, this is a must play game! (Note: I hate fighting games and only gave this a try due to the comic aspect. Happy I did!)
I'm sure most people were disappointed with Mortal Kombat vs. DC Universe, as I was. And as they redeemed Mortal Kombat with the reboot, I guess they felt they had to do the same to DC too, and successfully so! It improves over MK vs. DCU in just about every way, and in just the right fashion. The story is actually very creative and engaging, which is unusual for a fighting game. The gist of it, without spoiling anything, is what would happen if Superman wasn't the Boy Scout that he is? Gameplay wise it runs way smoother, I don't really prefer the more clunky 3D engine of MK vs. DCU, but here they took full advantage of Mortal Kombat 9's engine instead. But this is NOT a MK 9 clone. If they just slapped DC skins on MK 9 and called it a day, then it wouldn't have worked. While the gameplay is largely similar to MK 9, stylistically it's really a whole different animal, and should be viewed as such. I don't know about anybody else, but I didn't really go into this hoping to see Superman rip Batman's spine out (as much as he could do so). That just doesn't work for DC, and it's not such a strict professional martial arts tournament style as in MK 9. Which works just fine for the latter, but if you were to have a fighting game composed of superheroes, they would be picking up cars and smashing through buildings, with the stage crumbling around them, etc. In short, what this game lacks in Mortal Kombat style sickening over the top violence, it makes up for in DC style crazy over the top action, neither of which were found in MK vs. DCU. It's everything that MK vs. DCU should've been. Rather than dumbing it down to reach a T rating, here they took the more logical approach and pushed the T rating to get the most out of it. With a healthy sized roster and a strong cast of DC veterans to represent them, this is not one to pass up. DC fans such as myself will just eat this up, but if you're a fan of Mortal Kombat and/or fighting games, it'll still be a blast for you too.
