I have been a fan of the Mortal games for a long time, when I heard that the mortal Kombat and the DC universe are coming together for a fighting game I was so hyped and couldn't wait for the release of this game, There is twenty two characters for you to choose from both universe whether it be Kombat or DC.
All the famous faces and my favorite character sub zero are in this game, also scorpion is present and all the major faces from Kombat. From the DC side we have Batman, superman, cat woman and also the joker is present so you will get an incredible lineup for to choose from.
What I like about this game the moves that the characters perform stay true to their characters and something you could see them pulling off for example the joker has bombs which can blow up your opponent, Cat woman has a whip which she can strike her opponents with and when she does you feel the pain from it.
All the characters feel unique and they all have different personalities, this game for some might be like a gimmick but it's pretty good for huge DC fans like me to take control of these hero in a fighting style setting. The game play is basically Mortal Kombat so if you have played previous edition you will feel right at home.
The game play relies on the main core game play of kicking, punching and combo's. There is a problem with this game as it's quite new for it to be in 3D you can now sidestep your way around the arena pretty easy, also its more harder as when I am playing as subzero and I fire my ice move it misses the opponent as they can sidestep away unlike the previous 2D game where this was not possible.
There are new features to this game such as the close combat where you put your opponent into a collar and elbow tie-up, but it's not easier said than done to achieve as you have to guess what button your opponent will press so you can deflect the move they are trying to pull but even though it's a good addition it actually feels a bit stiff and takes away from the fighting experience as sometimes you are in tie-ups for a long time.
There are also ways you can finish your opponent one way you can pick them up and dash and combo them all the way, or what I do I just keep on putting my opponent through walls to finish them, also there is a rage mode that it makes it hard for your opponent to block your solid combo's that you will pull off, all these moves are only present in a few stages but the option is there at least and this option makes it feel more like a superhero game.
I enjoyed this game but I felt was kind of lacking in depth in some parts of the game and it wasn't deep, one plus side is that it does have online play so there is replay ability for you in that sense, and if you are a fan of any of these two universe its worth checking out.
Summary: a great but lacking in depth and just feels like its missing something
