Bringing together some of the greatest comic book heroes and villains of all time and pitting them against the legendary characters of Street Fighter et al. It was life-changing.
Now, after more than 10 years later Midway have taken an almost identical plunge and produced Mortal Kombat vs. DC Universe. Few can argue that the MK series has had some high and low moments over the past five years. Midway has produced numerous MK titles ranging from 3D beat-'em ups to RPG-like action adventure games. Not to mention the horrendous Mortal Kombat Kart Racing game that was included in Deception. Long gone are the days of the basic 2D fighting game, but the question remains – is this a bad thing?"
