Summary: When this game was new, it was $59.99. If I had paid that much for it, I'd want to fatality myself. However, now that the price has come down to a comical level, it's not as bad. Especially since you can get some trade in value when you've played the game and seen how underwhelming it really is, and the magic is over.
Pros: It's a Mortal Kombat game with DC characters in it. If you're a big fan of either franchise you should be happy about that. The price on this game has dropped tremendously.
Cons: Arcade mode is garbage with typical Mortal Kombat AI. Super easy for the first few stages, then impossible for the next ones. They started this with MKII and haven't changed it since. The game basically becomes you running from the computer player and getting countered every time you push a button. 2 player mode is OK, but even then it's not comparable to other fighting games that are out there right now. The graphics on this game are mediocre at best. All of the face...
Summary: RENT! it before you buy it, very dissapointed
Pros: - Very good gfx (because its a ps3 game, so its expected) - Finishing moves are cool
Cons: - hardly any blood at all, so very not-like mortal kombat - Not near enough players (only 2 unlockable) one for DC and one for MK - Too long of scenes in story mode, got really bored, still havent actually watched the cut-scenes
Summary: Why not 20-30 more characters? Why not have 6 finishing moves? Why not include the option to have 2 vs 2? GIVE ME BLOOD, THIS IS A FIGHTING GAME!!! Wishing I would of rented this prior to playing it. This is at best a game that you would play with friends and never play it by yourself. Can you return opened games? Should of bought the ps2 version of mortal kombat! Go back in time and never purchase this?
Pros: The graphics on this game are amazing and its to be expected since its a ps3 game. I really like the mesh of mortal kombat and dc characters. Computer is a good match-up until you lose(see below).
Cons: No blood at all... well maybe a touch here and there. Combos are extremely hard to piece together and rarely result in the correct button sequence. Only two un-lockable characters. Only two finishing moves per person. Certain characters are extremely overpowering. Extremely boring single player mode. On normal settings I was able to get a few battles and lose. After losing the computer gets extremely easy and lacks the same difficulty as before. The game has a fair am...
Conclusion: When i first heard that they were remaking Mortal Kombat i thought "Hoorah, finally i can own a copy of a Mortal Kombat game without weeping at the loss of my money that would have been better spent on contact lenses for the blind".
