ZTGD Review: Mortal Kombat Vs. DC Universe

ZeroTolerance writes:

"Crossovers are certainly nothing new in the world of media. Freddy Vs. Jason, Alien Vs. Predator and now Midway has decided to take a stab at the craze with Mortal Kombat Vs. DC Universe. When it was first announced the outcry from both camps was loud and clear, how could this possibly work? Well after spending plenty of quality time – and being a huge fan of both universes – I can safely say this is one crossover that works, and works well. The fighting system is pure old-school Mortal Kombat, the storyline is ripped straight from recent comics in the DC Universe and most importantly the game is fun.

One of the biggest changes that the MK team has done is eliminating a lot of the frustrations that came with the previous entries in the 3D titles. The weapons system and multiple fighting styles are gone as are the on-the-fly Fatalities introduced in Armageddon. Instead each character now possesses two finishing moves that are entirely unique. The finishing moves themselves are a bit disappointing, mostly due to the Teen rating, but there are some clever ones out there including The Joker as well as some classic returning finishers for veteran MK characters. The button inputs should be familiar and for seasoned experts the distance system returns requiring you to be at the correct spot to perform the finisher."

+ Solid cast of characters
+ Old-school MK feel
+ Substantial story mode
- Some lame Fatalities
- Severe lack of extras

this game is super fun. i cant even put it into words. just forget about all the crap about the 2 stories not working together cause they do work and work well. they wrote the stories every well and the gameplay is phenominal. seriously if u are into fighting games or mortal kombat fan at all then u need to play this game it is sooooo fun. they really did a great job on the gameplay. yes there are no extras to unlock but im willing to bet they knew they had a winner on their hands and they are preparing to milk us for all the DLC we can handle. the gam eis awesome hands down great
