The biggest and most deadly flaw of the game is the game play, It's too complicated. To jump you have to press the D-pad instead of just flicking up on the thumb stick, Movement feels clunky and awkward, and it's real tough to dodge/block an opponent's attack. All the things that should be simple and easy to do are overly complicated to perform, It's a bit of a grind to get use to things. I would highly suggest grinding it out in practice mode for a few hours, Get use to dodging and jumping, Use the time to pick your favorite characters and memorize their combos because combos really help during fights. Really disappointed with this aspect of the game.
Another complaint I have is that some of the characters just do not work out well. Some characters are stronger than others and with the weaker characters, You have to focus more on grapples and combos instead of basic attacks because you'd never win without them. Again, Very annoying.
Overall, I would not recommend this game. Stick to the new Mortal Kombat game that just came out, It's far better.
Essentially, I am a fan of Batman, Mortal Kombat (primarily the character Scorpion), and fighting games in general. The fact that game comes off a bit dry at times really doesn't hinder me while playing due to the fact that there are hidden characters and the like as incentive to stay somewhat focused. I, however, cannot confirm but, suspect that when the appeal of the hidden "easter-eggs" has worn down the game's re-playability will take a fatal head dive to the mat.
It is fun for the sake of having a Mortal Kombat cross-over especially considering that the D.C. character line-up: The Flash, the Joker, Batman, Cat-woman; etc. are all well done, all faithfully reproduced, and in strong character. The MK characters that you would demand be present are all there with the same being so for the D.C. Universe line-up.
The game has dropped dramatically in price, covers a niche pretty well, has strong Mortal Kombat fighting mechanics and no chump character line-ups. So, if you like fighters, have a few bucks burning a hole in your pocket, and enjoy twisted cross-over style games then this title will probably satisfy your urge. For the money I shelled out for the game, getting it brand new, and the details I explained above I have to rate this title pretty well.
I have been underwhelmed with most of the Mortal Kombat stuff that has been thrown out there in the last seven or eight years, but I found this game to be a delight. It's easy to learn, it has a bunch of characters, but not enough to make it impossible to get good at a majority of them, and, if you waited till now to pick it up, it's pretty darn cheap. If you're reading reviews, that means you're at least thinking about buying this game. Stop now, and buy it. It's worth your money, if only for the lovely chaos that is The Joker. Seriously, just say "Boxing Glove Gun" out loud, and you know you'll want this.
Gameplay is good, graphics are good, sound's alright, characters are well-chosen and diverse enough to please even the more picky of fighting game enthusiasts. There's no bonus content, though. There's a story behind all that, but if you care all that much, google it.
