  1. Feels like the refreshing start of a new era for Midway's fighting series. It probably won't change your mind if you're not into the genre, or even if you're into the genre but have already made up your mind about the MK series. But if you're open to the idea of more Mortal Kombat, you'll find a terrific game here.

    Mortal Kombat VS DC Universe is a strange combination that works; like fried chicken and waffles.
  3. To those who doubted the concept of MKvsDC, doubt no more because Mortal Kombat is back with a vengeance.

    This game has taken Mortal Kombat back to its roots. The fatalities are "dialed down" a bit but they are still entertaining. I love Mortal Kombat but since they were introduced as a 3-D fighter they have ALL fell short of my expectations when it comes to actual fighting. This game is the exception...Midway has finally got it right! Full Review »

    The story of this is one of the worst piece of fiction I've ever seen, complete "marasmus"!!! It pissed me off, violated every rule it possibly could in DC Universe. Having so many great characters, and make them all irrelevant FAILURE. Full Review »
