Ever since Mortal Kombat vs DC, I've longed for an updated DC fighting game and finally here it is.
Ok. so it's been out for a while, but having moved from owning this on the 360 to the Wii U it's good to know that the Wii U version is just as good, despite a few differences.
The most notable change is with online, with less options for lobbies and a far simpler matching solution, though it still works well when you can find a match.
Secondly, the control scheme is redesigned for the touchscreen pad, albeit slightly, and does make use of it. I still found myself using the physical controls, however.
The single player story contains some well written material that sees heroes jumping to different dimensions to defeat alternate versions of themselves. It's quite complicated to begin with but soon makes more sense. This also unlocks extra skins and cards and is well worth playing through simply for the story and the excellent voice acting.
All the hallmarks of a Mortal Kombat game are here, with a few alterations such as Fatalities replaced by 'Super Moves' that are less gruesome but equally fun to watch. The interactive stages, some with multiple levels, are well thought out and fun to fight in, with my favourite being the Batcave.
In addition to the main single player, you have STAR Labs missions, which involve completing specific actions,and a more classic arcade style battle against multiple opponents. Add the offline and online multiplayer and you have a pretty hefty set of game modes.
If you own a Wii U and enjoyed Tekken Tag on it (also highly recommended for the extras the Wii U brings) then this is a must have purchase.
