A good, if somewhat generic Beat em up,
This review is from: Mortal Kombat vs DC Universe (PS3) (Video Game)
I have played & owned every MK game to date, and am a massive fan of the characters from the DC Universe, so was thrilled to hear that a new beat em up was coming featuring both sets of characters. For the 1st time you can pit Batman against Sub-Zero or Superman against Raiden. Overall there are 22 characters in total from the 2 franchises to choose from. The presentation and graphics are good without being brilliant - an oh-so familiar problem with a lot of modern beat-em'ups. Most of the backgrounds are boring and look a bit sub standard as well. The sound effects are good, but some of the voices are very cheesy to say the least.
The moves are a bit slow at times, although the ripping costumes, and brusing are good, and the supermoves are also impressive. However, they have clearly toned down the 'Fatalities' from previous MK games, and most MK fans (like me) will be be bitterly disappointed about this. The fact is that this game may not last you long. There just is not the much to see or do, and for me the novelty of the appeal wore off quite quickly, which is a crying shame, plus there is not a lot going on with online options, although I expect that to be different when it starts selling, which I am sure it will, no matter what I say. Overall then a 6 out of 10, and could have been so much better.
