Not since the heyday of the Mortal Kombat series has the core game mechanics shined so well. The fighting engine will appeal greatly to pre-Mortal Kombat IV fans of the series. When the title was first announced, a lot of skeptics dismissed the title presuming it would be another poorly made cross marketed tie-in. Not so in the case of Mortal Kombat vs DC Universe. Both sets of universes are handled properly and somehow it all just seems to work. While it may not quite be as brutal as you may remember, Mortal Kombat vs DC Universe definitely nailed the core fighting that has given the MK franchise such longevity.
