"Midway has no intention of making Mortal Kombat vs. DC Universe as technical as Street Fighter IV. They threw out the ability to cycle through multiple fighting styles and removed the weapons introduced in Mortal Kombat: Deadly Alliance to make the crossover game a title anyone can play. The new addition to the fighting system is mid-air combat where an attacking player tries to land three attacks before both players hit the ground. A defending player can try to counter the assault by pressing the same face button to block and reverse the situation. Whoever lands three hits gets to do a special move. When I played as Scorpion I threw a spear into the second player and tossed him to the ground."
