This game is fun, but falls VERY short. The graphics of the game is pretty good and the story line is not bad as well. However, the gameplay seems to be very plain and boring and the rule DC implemented regarding reduced gore to make it "kid friendly" has really messed with the game. Other flaws were the very basic punch, kick and jab motions were the essential moves of the game which is lame. You had to press like 50 buttons to perform a fatality and the game just didnt come through according to my standards. Even though with a group of friends just messing around this game can be pretty fun.. but so can any other fighting game.

I was really excited about the game when I found out midway was doing a cross brand fight which they are developing. It is not a MK game that much at all.
It has battle damages on your characters as you see through out your battle, theres blood, bone crushing attacks, and still maintain their fatalities from the MK side. It is not gory at all, but you will still see scorpian doing his signature skull flame fatalities and his spear hooks. The DCU side has their own brand of finishings called brutalitys which acts more of a heroic finish rather than having say superman ripping subzero in half.
The controls are very simple, characters only have their own style, not like how the last previous MK game which gave you options to change your fighting style. the controls are really straight forward, it is kinda like soul caliber with 70% less combos to memorize, special moves are just "down,up + square" etc. so anybody could pretty much pick it up and play.
The story is original and very interesting, you pick a side you want, you play through chapters which uses a specific heroe for each one, so you have to play all of them, and progress on. No twists here, and bends there, midway kept it simple to try this game out.
The sounds is ok, voice acting is not bad from actors. The graphics is very detailed on the character, nice job on that, but the environment could use some more attention.

So to conclusion the game is not bad, MK fans will be alittle disapointed alittle because of how shallow the game play is and that of the fatalities turned down a huge knotch, but its not bad, each company is trying to respect each other, varities is pretty much story and online, there is no kombat kart, kombat chess, etc. each character has a small ending to unlock but pretty much thats it, this game dosen't seem like it has a long lasting appeal to it, but it is gaurentee worth as a rental.

The game is good but it gets boring very fast. Both campaigns are good but I wish they would of been longer. Dodging is very easy in this game. NOT DIFFICULT AT ALL. But I havent tried out the multiplayer much. I only played one round and its very smooth.
