First thing I want to touch on is Collectors Edition vs. Regular Edition. Last time I tried to put actual price tag numbers in an Amazon review it was censored, so I'll just say take a look, you know Collectors Edition costs quite a bit more than the regular. Is it worth it?

Only if you're a hard-core collector. You get a very beautiful lithograph. Stunning artwork. I may even have to frame it. The comic is nice. Not great, just, nice. It's not so much of a self contained story as much as it's a kind of mural that serves to get you into the story. It's really short, probably not worth a second read. Same with the DVD. It has some really interesting vids about the making of the game and some interviews. It's surprisingly lengthy, but winds up amounting to extras you get on any DVD that you watch once and never again. So that's a rundown of the Collectors Edition extra's. Decide for yourself if you think that's worth it. I like the litho. Everything else I watched/read once and that's it. And the litho, beautiful as it is, probably wasn't worth the extra $$$. Now for the actual game.

Violence:
This seems to be the big sticking point for most MK fans. Most of the people who have something bad to say about this game, it boils down to "they toned down the blood and gore. It's the end of the world!" Well, there is still blood in here and there are still fatalities. Are they toned down from previous MK games? Most definitely! Probably only the first MK game on the SNES would be less bloody. Midway had to tone it down to a Teen rating in order for DC to get on board with the game. But like I said, there is still blood and Fatalities. They really do push the Teen rating to its limit. So parents may still want to be aware.

I purchased Mortal Kombat vs. DC Universe because frankly, I'm a big DC fan. Ever since I had heard about the game in early 2008, I loved the thought that the DC characters would be playable in a fighting game but I was still somewhat skeptical about how it would turn out.

After buying the Kollector's Edition and playing it, I must say that this is now one of my favorite games of all time. The graphics are smooth, the fighting is brutal, and the ability to battle characters from both of these worlds is one of the best ideas in a long time (it's also executed quite well).

In terms of the Kollector's Edition, for those of you who don't care about the extra little comic book, cover art, and DVD with extras, that's fine. I think the die hard fans are the main ones that'll go for this. Regardless, rent or buy this game soon.

The only possible downside to MK vs. DC is the fatalities. Some are extremely watered-down while others are very good (for a T-rated game). Personally, I didn't mind because I'm not an MK fan and I think that throughout these past few years, fatalities have become just way too over-the-top and usually climax with an unnecessary explosion of flesh. Ick.

There's more than enough in this game to keep you engaged, however: Freefall Kombat, the "Test Your Might" minigames, Klose Kombat, and the physical damage that can be inflicted on the opponent (complete with visible blood, bruising, and cuts in the costume) is nothing short of impressive. Also, there's a Practice mode (highly recomended for first-time users which allows you to test out a character's moves), Kombo Challenge, and the story mode (which I haven't even played yet!).

Did I mention the online fighting?

All in all, a great game.

I haven't been a fan of MK since after MK II for the Arcades and Super NES. I've tried all the sequels but they just weren't for me, especially the last 4 for the PlayStation and PS2.

MK vs. DC brings this series back to it's roots and it's a lot of fun. The fatalities can be lame but they still do what they're supposed to - give you closure to a hard fought victory.

The fighting engine is a little stiff but it doesn't hinder the game play and you get used to it relatively quickly. Besides, I found it more enjoyable that Soul Calibur 4.

Bottom lins is that the game is fun. I received it today and played through the arcade mode with Scorpion and I can't wait to play through it with the other 19 characters.

I hope Midway keeps this engine and fine tunes it for future MK releases. Here's also hoping that the next one is a mature game too. I like the DC characters though and this is a nice one-off game.

Allright, now I know critics play games for a living and tend to see a slew of games in every category, but this is a review that I actually highly disagree with. I'm enjoying this game quite a bit and I haven't seen anything wrong with it yet. All the characters play and behave the way they should. The voice acting is surprisingly fairly impressive. All the heroes from DC have special moves that compliment their abilities. Even the DC characters such as The Joker and Lex Luthor who don't really have true powers or strengths were given special moves that suited them.

The gameplay itself is basically an enhanced, upgraded version of the 3D MK games from the previous generation. The tweaks and improvements to the gameplay are all for the better this time around. They scrapped the style-switching based combat and integrated a new system called "Klose Kombat". Pressing R1 makes your character grab the opponent and pull him in closer towards where you then press any of the face buttons in sequence, while your opponent has to attempt to match the button you choose in order to block the devastating combo. There's also Freefall Kombat which applies the same concept while falling through the air after you throw your enemy off of a multi-tiered stage. Another new gameplay element such as these is "Test Your Might", where you repeatedly slam your opponent through either the walls or ceilings of a multiple story arena. Once again you must use the new throw manuver allocated to L1 and then you and your opponent simply mash the face buttons as fast as you possibly can in a tug-of-war type struggle. These new gameplay features blend perfectly with the rest of the combat, and the combo system is still fairly deep.
