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
a game that lives up to the hype its really amazin

first of all let me start by saying this game is just plain amazing from the charcters to the look and feel of the game its really easy to pick up and play if your not ust to fighting games all moves can be seen and the fatalites now it does take some getting ust to when choosing a fighter you may like because some are slow and powerful like kratos and raiden pretty slow as well but if you know how to use them then its all good the story mode is what really got me i thought it was just going to be a little 10 fight beat the boss type of deal but was i surpised it goes in to detail and when you think its over bam here comes another twist not going to spoil it for you but to me its amazing all the extra game modes battle tag battle test your luck and so on make this game a great BUY so even if you have the slightest itch to pick up i would nice character selection a story mode regular arcade mode and pleanty to unlock they really hit it out of the park on this one cant wait for the next to come out
