Taw writes "Unlike competitors Namco and Sega, famous for the Tekken and Virtua Fighter series, Midway did not have the inspiration needed to take a step forward with the transition to 3D to meet the demanding fans. Therefore, the big difference between this title and the ones we are used to is that the violence has been toned down to make the game more accessible to a wider range of players.
At first glance, the story doesn't seem very imaginative: the enemies of Rayden and Superman have merged together in a single being, more powerful than anything that has ever existed, Dark Khan (don't be scared, Shao Khan and Darkseid are still present). This new entity aims to destroy the universe in a sodomist way and create portals that allow travel between worlds, so that the two worlds can fight at will.
But how does the diabolical Khan convince the most notable representatives to confront each other? He didn't ask them nicely, of course, but used a magic called Rage to turn them into pitbulls ready to fight."
