Random Gamer's Release of the Week: Mortal Kombat vs. DC Universe

Greedy Raven writes, "Mortal Kombat. Oh how the mighty have fallen. The fighting game that was so controversial that it birthed the ESRB, has slipped from the spotlight since its creation in 1992. Not to say that the series has been a failure, as 7 installments, several ports, and 2 movies can't be called a failure. Rather, in the explosion of the gaming industry, Mortal Kombat as become increasingly irrelevant.

Mortal Kombat vs. DC Universe is an attempt to revitalize the series. So... what's been hot lately? Comic books! In a strange twist that none of us saw coming, Mortal Kombat has shed its legendary "M" rating and has added opponents in the likes of Batman, Superman, and Wonder Woman. Um... what?..."

Not a huge fan of fighting games, but DC Universe might get me into this one.

bgrundman3379d ago

I am not too sure, the game looks a bit too over the top for my liking.

Cenobia3379d ago

I'm not a big fan of fighters either, and as soon as this was announced I had no interest in it whatsoever. The last MK game I played got really old fast, and the inclusion of DC in this game feels like they are trying to cash in on two established franchises.

If they were going to include DC (which is pretty obscure) they should have gone even farther, bringing more characters in. I guess I just don't understand the cross over.

The game will be mediocre at best. I think it'd be best to wait for Street Fighter (either 4 or HD).

I'll put this one in the queue.

bgrundman3379d ago

You better get in the queue right now then because the game release last night and it is already available on Goozex!

roblef3379d ago

The video of the Joker was awesome! I'd totally rent that game!

bgrundman3379d ago

Really? I thought it was funny, but it would make me think twice. I guess I am too much of a Virtua Fighter fan.

Jimmy the Greek3379d ago

im a big fan of mortal kombat but i think a t rated version is a mistake. theres also the addition of my old arch nemesis quick time events, which has never been fun.

bgrundman3379d ago

Quick time events do suck. That is what I hated most about God of War on the PSP. Some of the movements on the analog nub made the game almost unplayable.

ammonator3379d ago

They were also in Force Unleashed, stupid Star Destroyer level...

bgrundman3379d ago

Amen to that... it really pissed me off something fierce!

Jimmy the Greek3379d ago

i know, i know. we can thank god of war and resident evil 4 for making them popular and now theyre in every other game.
