The Armchair Empire writes: "The only strange thing about Mortal Kombat vs. DC Universe is that the pairing took so long. Capcom and Marvel combined characters in their Capcom vs. Marvel fighting game years ago with very good results. But it wasn't just Capcom that got in on the character-crossover feature. I can still remember the brouhaha that resulted in Soul Calibur II featuring cameos by Link (Legend of Zelda), Spawn (Spawn), and Heihachi Mishima (Tekken). If done right guest star roles and series crossovers can be a lot of fun and from what has been shown of Mortal Kombat vs. DV Universe this is one combination that is going to work beyond the novelty of seeing these characters together."
