Thunderbolt: "In the Christmas rush to release every game under the sun, Mortal Kombat vs DC Universe has come as a surprise. Granted, the usual camp undertones and cheesy dialogue remains, but that is part of the series' appeal. If you haven't come to love the style and characters by now, then you never will. The way in which the addition of the finest DC heroes instantly feel welcome to the franchise makes their inclusion strangely more appealing as a whole. For hardcore fans, the returning gore and rewarding combo system will no doubt satisfy ever last drop of their bloodlust. For newcomers, you have yourself an accessible and forgiving game that doesn't chuck you into the deep end like previous titles (if you can stand the excessive use of the letter 'K'). It seems that with the aid of their superhero counterparts, Mortal Kombat is back, and in better skull cracking shape than before."
