The first Mortal Kombat game to ever to have a fatality censored in North America. Since North America carries a 13+ rating, the camera cuts away just before the Joker's gun shoots his victim in the head. The Pal version keeps the original version intact since their Teen rating is for 16 and over. See more »
Mk vs DC is one of those kind of games that got a lot of negative reviews over a very stupid reason.
The final verdict for it was "it was not gory enough." Well, guess what, despite that, this it's a really good game! and not every single MK game has to have five torsos flying around when you make a fatality, in my perspective it is more realistic than any other MK game since the fighting mechanics look more like a real fight, plus having dc heroes doing heroic brutalities is more in line with the nature of the characters other than just having batman ripping someone's head off, they're HEROES people!!! not killers.
The attention to detail on behalf of the character moves is outstanding, you will get to see Superman's fighting style just as you would've imagined and the same goes for Flash, Green lantern and all dc characters.
MK characters have their signature moves plus a few new ones and they are done to precision so that no character in the entire game is alike.
Being a long time DC and MK fan, this title eluded me for a while because of all the negative feedback I heard about it, but when I finally got the chance to play it I only wanted to master it, learn all moves, combos and fatalities, no matter what, which is the same feeling I got for MK3 and UMK3.
Yes, it's not gory but it's still pretty violent, don't let the reviews fool you.
This was made with love, you can tell from the very beginning, also the story... well... I guess most people haven't picked up a crossover comic in their lives, but the story feels like one of those old comics like Marvel vs DC.
And yes, I'm both a huge MK fan as well as DC and this game delivers on both ends.
Don't believe me? play it for a while with an open mind and judge for yourself, you will finish both sides of the story just to see where it ends and then you will try your best to complete the kombo challenges and the just keep playing it over and over again.
I don't know what most people are complaining about, maybe they just wanted guts and blood to soar through the air with a little punch or something like that, but since I'm not the kind of guy who goes with what the crowd says but more that kind of guy who makes up his own mind I will give this game a 10/10 just to compensate. (although in reality I would've given it a 9 because there could've been more characters and something like alternate suits, a making of video or just extras in general) Don't let anyone fool you, this is a good game, challenging but still playable, fun and gorgeous to look at.
