Gaming Evolution: "The creative minds over at Midway have always envisioned making their Mortal Kombat franchise appealable to all audiences, while at the same time not selling out to its hardcore supporters. Capcom was able to pull it off successfully with the Marvel vs. Capcom series of titles, which graced both consoles and arcades alike. With Midway, they opted to bring the worlds of Mortal Kombat and the DC together in an all out slugfest. Mortal Kombat vs. DC Universe is Midway Games attempt at expanding their franchise to a broader audience, while still giving hardcore fans what they long for, total annihilation of ones opponents.
Mortal Kombat vs. DC Universe features 22 fighters, both from the Mortal Kombat universe and the DC universe. Unlike previous Mortal Kombat games where it's good versus evil, within MK vs. DCU it's all about good and evil teaming up in order to protect their very existence. While most would look at this title as a gimmick Midway is doing to capitalize off of the DC licensing, there is actually more to the title than meets the eye. There are several new combat features utilized with this title including Klose Kombat, Free-Fall Kombat, Test Your Might and Rage Mode. While each of the 22 fighters have their own distinct fighting style and special moves, these gameplay enhancement add an additional touch to the well polished gameplay mechanics."
