Summary: I just purchased this game and normally I rent something before I buy it but that wasn't the case with this. I went to MANY different sites and read the reviews and pretty much no what to expect. The game has been watered down a lot as far as the fatalities but it's still a decent game. It has only half the kombatants as the last MK installment which isn't a plus but they did a great job with whom they chose.
Pros: Something new and the fact that it is still Mortal Kombat at heart
Cons: Watered down fatalities, nowhere near enough Kombatants
Summary: If you are a fan of the MK series, this is definitely one to check out. The game play is fun when playing with another player. I beat the game on my first attempt, playing solo, so the game is not too long or difficult. I picked this up at Best Buy online, during a recent sale for $37.99. I would wait until the price comes down again before picking it up. It is a fun game, but not worth $59.99.
Summary: Ben Stiller's Tropic Thunder promo on mtv said it best, Ironman was good at least until Dark Knight comes out. So it seems that MK vs DC is good until Street Fighter comes out. I've been playing these fighting games from arcade to console and MK seemed almost the other fighting game to Street Fighter. Also Capcom vs Marvel came first as well.
Pros: Being able to play DC characters, smooth online play, easy controls to learn, replay value
Summary: All in all with mk vs dc is an awesome game. I'm an old Mortal Kombat fan who loves to see what they can do wtih the graphics. I was definitely impressed with this game and had alot of fun as well.
Summary: I love Mortal Kombat. Always have and I'm pretty sure always will. I'm not a big fan of DC but the characters are great so far. Still not done with the game yet so I only gave it 4 stars. But those 4 stars are awesome! I love the players they have from MK and so far the DC players are fun. Personal favorites: Raiden and the Joker.
Summary: I'm not going to lie when I say MK is my favorite game franchise of all time. I love the gore, the characters, the story, the secrets, and inside stuff that true MK fans know about, but adding DC characters was a bit dicey, but surprisingly works. The game's story is pretty straight forward with both universes colliding and each sides' main villians are turning into one and controlling everyone else through a type of berserk mind control.
Pros: Fighting back to it's roots, DC characters are great to play as, looks awesome, new elements are nice
Cons: Toss away story mode, no gore, fatalities are kind of lame, not much content
Summary: I like this game specially it is in Full HD 1080P; however, I don't see any gore in the game for this version, but I hope they do bring the gore back. I would recommend the Collectors Edition to any one that is a big fan of the Mortal Kombat games. Some of the carators from the other Mortal Kombat games are not present in this version, futhermore, I like everthing about the collectors edition, but I just don't understand the art work that came with the package.
