Trivia

Since the game featured DC characters, Midway was forced to keep the tone of the violence down. This also included less violent fatalities as DC did not allow on screen gore or extreme violence to be associated with their characters. It took Midway multiple submissions to the ESRB before a Teen rating was awarded. See more »

This Mortal Kombat game has some of the best fighting in the series.
12 January 2011 | by Aaron1375See all my reviews

The other Mortal Kombat games I have played have really lacked in the fighting category, this one the fighting was really good and fluid. The finishers are not quite as deadly and bloody as earlier incarnations, but I did not mind all that much. I just enjoy the opportunity to do a finishing move, I do not really care if it is ultra bloody. This one includes DC comic characters, hence the reason it is less violent, and I rather enjoyed their inclusion. It was fun and they actually explain during story mode that all the things that were happening were affecting the powers of say Superman and Captain Marvel, hence why they simply did not dominate all the other characters as they probably should have. I hate fighting games where everyone can face everyone and have an equal chance at winning with no explanation as to why. This one is also a lot more fun than an earlier game featuring Marvel characters called Rise of the Imperfects. This one trumps that game in that it has multiple endings in the arcade mode and a lot better fighting. Which sucks as I love the Marvel characters and enjoy them better than those of DC, yet Marvel seems to have complete boneheads doing their writing and such these days. The main problems I had with this one is that in the two story modes every character that is playable does not have a chapter. In the DC side of things Catwoman and Deathstroke get left off and three or four are left off the Mortal Kombat side. That and you can not use finishers in the story mode, though I guess it would be strange to kill someone and then have them return for a later segment, still it is a game so who cares? All in all though it was fun, it has a lot of replay value in it.
