I was pumped up to finally play a MK game on the Xbox 360. To make things even better, DC characters were also involved which makes this game a dream come true for some.
Sorry to say, I was very dissapointed. There are only about 8-10 characters for each franchise. Many famous MK warriors are missing. The story mode is very bad. Before you start story mode- you choose which side you want to be on. Each side has its own very badly written storyline but they BOTH have the same awful ending.
The fighting in the game is 5/10. Arcade mode is the classic MK format. You fight one warrior/hero at a time until you reach the top boss.
One of the most dissapointing aspects about the fighting is the Fatalities/Brutalities/Fi- nishers. They are very bland and childish. There is no gory, brutal, eye-popping finishers. This is why the game was rated T for Teen instead of the normal M for mature rating MK games usually get.
Another feature in the game is Kombo Challenge. This is where you pick a warrior/hero and attempt to perform 10 fighting combos that are presented on the screen. I found these to be nearly impossible to achieve.

I have played just about every MK game there is and the fighting style that was the same in previous games just repeats.... It's quite annoying, I played a total of 30 minutes of it and i shut it off to play Batman Arkham Asylum.. this game was a waste of time and money for me. i was hoping for more specials and less button mashing. there were far too many unblockable moves, and too many moves you cant dodge. I'm an offensive fighter and when i was going against flash it was almost un beatable. there is more movies and clips in this game than there is actual fighting..... i think out of the 30 minutes of play my kombat time was maybe 10 minutes. Unreal did a horrible job with this game.

an okay fighter, but as a mortal kombat game, i find it to be kinda weak. due to the inclusion of dc characters, many fatalities and such had to be scaled back, thus making it essentially just a fighting game. the controls are okay, but in the time i played it, i found it to get boring quickly.
