This version has no DLC, lag, no way to play with friends, and it makes me realize, OMG NINTENDO, REMAKE YOUR D-PAD, IT SUCKS FOR FIGHTING GAMES. I CAN'T DO HALF THE COMBOS BECAUSE IF ITS A PRESS THE TWO OPPOSITE DIRECTIONS, YOU HAVE TO SLIDE YOUR FINGER ACROSS THE D-PAD TO DO IT FAST ENOUGH AND IT WILL MESS UP BY THIS 90% OF THE TIME. iF YOU HAVE ANOTHER CURRENT GEN CONSOLE, STICK TO THAT VERSION. That will be all.
I do not have an internet connection on any of my consoles. so I cant say anything of the inferior online system. the story of the game was okay. it could have been shorter. the game is fun to play and fast paced. the moves are pretty simple to do. it feels like a Mortal Kombat game and it has some balancing issues. Deathstroke for example is a projectile fighter and his moves will pin you at the edge of the screen if done correctly. Superman's character power makes his beam attacks and other specials really strong. the move list is very detailed down to even frame data. I hope we see this level of detail on more fighting games. you can use the game pad as a second screen or to display your favorite moves which can be tagged from your master list. Batman reminds me of Scorpion from the MK games which is why I question the decision to have Scorpion in the game as a DLC guy. if you are the type that loves to master your fighting games this one may be a little light on content and the clash system can be exploited so that you win 90 percent of them. I definitely have enjoyed playing this but I dont feel like it would be a purchase.
I'll admit it, I had no idea this game was a fighter. I'm not a big fan of fighters, but I gave it a go anyway. Made it through the grueling tutorial and then fired up the story mode. It seems like a pretty standard fighter. Fairly easy (if not cumbersome at times) controls. Enjoyable, dynamic levels. But what kept me playing for three hours straight on the first go was the story. Excellent, engaging cutscenes, professional voice acting, interesting character models and costumes. I kept fighting just to see what would happen next. I fully intend to complete the story mode, but I can't see much replay value after that. That's not to say there isn't replay value, I'm just not that entertained by fighting titles.
