5.0 out of 5 stars The best DC game to come out in years, November 16, 2008
= Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars 
This review is from: Mortal Kombat vs. DC Universe - Playstation 3 (Video Game)
Clear off your calendar if you pick this one up. This game is incredibly fun and addictive. The graphics here are amazing, and other than some strange costume changes for The Flash and Green Lantern, they're faithful to the comics. The Mortal Kombat side of things is pretty much standard as far as character build goes. There are a few minor tweaks, but you can easily see which character is which. DC has Superman, Batman, Green Lantern, Wonder Woman, Flash, Captain Marvel, Joker, Catwoman, Lex Luthor, and Deathstroke. MK has Lui Kang, Scorpion, Sub Zero, Shang Zui, Kano, Jax, Sonja Blade, and Kitana. I missed seeing Johnny Cage in here, and I think Catwoman could have been scrapped for another hero like Green Arrow or Hawkman, but for the most part you can't complain about their choices.

Each character has their own unique moves. It's easy to see where spending some time playing the same character will make you a formidable opponent if you take the fight online. Most of the characters have long-range attacks, and the finishing moves are spectacular!

Playing in story mode is a one-player affair. First you choose which side you're playing on (MK or DC). The DC side finds Superman stopping Darkseid and accidentally opening a portal that begins to bring the two realities together with crushing results. In Story Mode, you play as each character over time, learning individual moves and getting just good enough with each before moving on to the next. Some of them have a bit of a learning curve, but for the most part the major attacks are the same button-mashing combination (but with different results for each). By far my favorite characters are The Flash and Captain Marvel. Flash has a move called "Around the World" that will leave your enemies spinning and unable to attack for a few precious seconds. Captain Marvel can call down the Shazam lightning on his opponents (among many other cool moves).

By far this is the best DC game that's come out in years. Though the gameplay is basically the same thing between cutscenes (fight somebody), it's still a lot of fun.

Since it wouldn't let me write my own review (which I have no idea why, since I purchase on here, but that's another story). For the most part, I definitely agree with Brian - I purchased this game 2 days ago--have been playing it ever since!!!! Graphics are incredible, each character is fully developed, and the story line is friggin awesome! What character do I like the most? THE JOKER!!!! LOL! Whoever did his voice got it exactly right, not to mention they got his personality, outfit, and items when he fights down packed!!!!!! SubZero is also another favorite of mine, but to be honest, EACH character has their own special unique movies, and it's amazing how Midway was able to utilize each characters personality and moves, despite whether they were MK characters or not. (Batman rocks too by the way ^_~). And the music is cool as hell too! I play this more than Soul Calibur for the PS3 I say, sorry....that game didn't catch my attention, no storylines to it (or real short ones) - at least this game here had a story line for both sides, and an ending for each character! IT ROCKS! Thanx for the awesome review Bryan dearie! :)
