i got mine today it's in my mailbox!! cant wait to go home and try it
got it for a week now and it hasnt left my disc drive. even though darksiders 2 and maxpayne 3 just arrived from newegg. fighting online gets my adrenaline rushing though, people are good.
i wish i felt the same. the fighting engine is a blast as always and very well done. but the story mode, while a good effort and a step in the right direction, was terrible. the story made little sense and the scenes just werent interesting. im glad they took inspiration from mk9 but if you compared the two, its laughable how much better mk's story mode is. its also a little short on modes imo but it does have the most important modes. it also doesnt have many characters compared to other series latest offerings. id give it a 6 or 7 imo. i feel as though i prob should have gotten tekken tag 2 instead
Story definitely wasnt worth it, yeah it was a step up but MK9's story blew it out. fighting though is ridiculously good.
i "love" how breaking a vase that isnt even kokoro's , set her in a fighting mood . Her and others appears like psychopath in the story mode . Anyway i dont feel i should have bought tekken instead (i've got both anyway) . The fighting engine is a blast and actually deeper than my usual impression of DOA (well it was always deep from the first game , but some features made it easy to abuse imo)
*big explosion* *someone bumps into her amidst the panic.* "NOW, APOLOGIZE!" Yeah, it was probably one of the worst stories I have experienced in anything for a while. I mean games like COD may be predicable with their stories but at least they make some kind of sense. Still, I never really did expect that the plot was the main selling point of DOA games =P, and other than the plot it was a decent game I thought.
