I found myself very surprised by the high number of good reviews on here...there were very few things about this game I liked.
Speaking as a DC Comics fan, it's very cool to see all the best characters in here, so that's to the game's credit. However, the story mode is a joke! The story is ridiculous and the voice acting is beyond awful. Also, you can't skip cutscenes (a big pet peeve for me), which I could deal with except that the one cutscene I actually wanted to watch was a complete cop-out! They didn't even bother making a cutscene of the big brawl at the end, they just narrated the fight with some still frames. After having to listen to all these idiots talk in between fights, it was pretty annoying to not have what would've been an awesome cutscene.
The gameplay is decent, with some fun moves and combat gimmicks, but I found myself attempting moves and going right through the other guy, or having the attack fail even though the opponent didn't block. Very glitchy. Also, it seems that the computer opponent's strategy in beating you depends on the AI knowing and reacting to your button inputs, rather than fighting the way a human opponent would...the computer blocked so many attacks, it was like it had ESP. Rent this one, but trust me, do NOT buy it.
Fun game overall, love the concept, graphics are nice looking.....love the look of the DC Comics characters in the MK universe.
But I hated a few things also. First, why does it seem like theses games are getting harder and harder to make a combo work....second...its like they try to even up everyone TO MUCH. Superman is basically a wimp compared to what I was expecting...not any stronger then any other character, and the fact that the heroes can only perform "brutalities" is just plain out dumb.
But, overall, if you like the MK series, and you love you some Justice League, this game is without a doubt worth trying out for a month or so.
