I've been on board with MK for a while, even though when 1 2 and 3, 3+, 3 ultimate, Trilogy, etc. I was just a button masher who managed to beat the game using high kick and uppercuts. Anyway...

I thought this was a great game, al beit a little bit one sided in who to pick but still good. it almost seemed like the makers of MK got gimped on heroes whereas the DC universe got to make their characters as overpowered as possible. I think Captain Marvel was my personal Favorite because he had one ability for every single distance so he could literally keep you locked down the entire fight if he was good enough, Superman was the same way. So I guess all in all it has all the things that MK has always had, just more characters to pick from so it appeals to the MK lovers and the DC comicboys. The story needs to watch it though, I forsee many problems with the way it came out. Before long we will see movies on youtube where hello kitty island is invaded by unreal tournament people and... hmm... I should get that copyrighted.

I had high hopes for this after see that it had a decent rating and some pretty good reviews. The graphics are really nothing more then average and to me feel as if they were rushed without much care put into them, and the controls and flow of the fighting are less then average feeling fairly sluggish and like they too were just thrown together so they could slap a price tag on the names. I thought the one saving grace might be the fatality's but I was sadly mistaken, they have been watered down to the point that the word fatality should not be used....very disappointing overall.

okay, i played it and tried to love it,but mk not rated m is just boring, i like the lil test your might mini game ,and some of the fighting but scorpions combos suck,and the adding of d.c. isnt cool at all. the fatalities(one of the only reasons mk drew fans from its origins bcs it was awesome to kill ur buds fav charecter in front of them) is so toned down its not satisfying to even learn the fatality buttons.deathstrokes and jokers fatalities in the north american version cut out the parts where they shoot the victim in the head....
idk who they tried to appeal too.honestly i dont give 2 (insert) about the dc universe..what were they smoking? the story is weak just "ooo the rage!!!, so im gonna fight u ,u, and u for no reason!"
in the end i beat the story then sent it back out the next day. dont buy this game..Dont really even waste ur time unless u got absolutly nothing esle better to do. midway step it up , i like the new mini games but bring mortal kombat back to a "M" rating and leave the idiots in tights out(may i add they made superman and raiden way to cheap in this game, and the boss "dark khan" is freaking ridiculous..
