When the series first started in the '90s, it was able to carve out a niche by having a unique art style, ridiculously over-the-top violence, and a manner of controlling the characters that was different from other fighting games. However, since it made the transition to 3-D with Mortal Kombat 4, the series has been in a bit of a downward spiral, overshadowed by virtually every other fighting game on the market and slowly becoming the title that people know "because of those violent fatality things." In the spirit of games like Marvel vs. Capcom, Midway has gotten its hands on the DC Comics license and created a crossover title for its first current-gen effort. The end result is Mortal Kombat vs. DC Universe, an interesting concept that doesn't manage to reach its full potential."
