I've been a Mortal Kombat fan from MK1 in the arcades all the way through MK vs DC and i must say that this is the greatest Mortal Kombat game ever made.
Pros: STORY MODE (best ever for a fighting game. Could take 4-8 hours to complete) Return to 2D gameplay. XRay moves are insanely brutal. Beautiful graphics (or disgusting graphics, depends on your tolerance). Great roster of fighters (everyone you'd ever want, really). Crazy amount of unlockables (costumes, art, fatalities). KRATOS!
Cons: The Krypt is unnecessarily hard to navigate. Online is laggy sometimes. Depends on your connection.
Overall, THEY GOT HIS ONE RIGHT. Anyone who was upset with the lack of gore in MK vs DC will be VERY happy. The fighters seem balanced, the story mode is revolutionary and the tone of the whole game is perfect. Whether you've been playing MK since the 90's or you've never played at all, BUY THIS GAME.
I'm not a fighter genre gamer savvy kind of guy but when i clocked some hors in the game i was hooked. Every characther is totally customised so there isnt any receptiveness. Kratos is my fav fighter and to lurn therir combos is not easy but a fun kind of challenge if u know what im saying. the story mode is alright but i just go for the ladder matches where theres tag team and many other types to choose. Fatalities are amazing, oh and to say kratos was not made into a lag version actually he looks talks and to my knowledge plays with all the cool toys from the game series no info on the multi cuz at this time april 21 the psn was down if u dont remember. most DEF a buy or a rent im going to keep this gem
