Clearance Bin Video Game Review: Mortal Kombat vs. DC Universe

Title: Mortal Kombat vs. DC Universe
Rating: T
System: Xbox 360 and PS3

Script: Welcome to the Organized Clearance Bin Video Game Review of Mortal Kombat vs. DC Universe. As of right now, this game isn’t in the clearance bin, but I will go over what would be a good buying price for this game, so if you ever do see it in the bin, you know what to do.

Story mode is of course what it says. There are two different stories to go by… Mortal Kombat or DC… why do they make me choose! We’ll go with Mortal Kombat for now, but don’t worry I will show the Joker in this review… promise! So this is the intro movie to the story of the Mortal Kombat side. It just explains… well I’m not really sure, but hey the guy from God of War makes an appearance! So you start out as Liu Kang and you end up fighting people. Like every Mortal Kombat out there! You start with fighting with Sub Zero. Boring! This isn’t the reason you want to play this game! Well ok maybe it is, but come on? We’ve been fighting other Mortal Kombat characters since the 90’s! We want DC Universe! Alright after you defeat Sub Zero, you end up fighting Scorpion… blah blah blah, you then get to fight The Flash! And the crowd goes wild. Alright enough with the story of Mortal Kombat! On to the DC story!

The DC story starts you out as the Flash fighting this guy. Then Cat Woman, then you threaten to kill and Batman does not like that one bit. So you end up fighting Batman. After you beat Batman this happens. My god, that was one of the coolest one liners I’ve ever heard. Alright enough with the stories that just explain why you’re fighting Mortal Kombat people or why you’re fighting DC people.

There is also an arcade mode, this must be good old fashion Mortal Kombat. Ah man I can’t wait to play as Smoke! Uh… Smoke? No Smoke? Fail! No Johnny Cage? But he’s like in the very first… never mind. So not a big character selection, but I guess I can’t complain due to the DC Universe. Oh wait! Yes I can! Why no Smoke, you evil game designers!?

Alright I won’t wait anymore… heres the man of the hour! THE JOKER! I’ll use him in this Combo Challenge, that I mentioned earlier. Yeah you can do the combos or you can just beat the crap out of Wonder Woman. Your choice.

Alright so the fighting in this game is fun to play. It’s not extremely difficult to perform moves. They got the variety of moves for each character. The fighting is just like any other fighting game like this.

Final Say:
So it comes to what it’s worth. I say it depends on if you like Mortal Kombat or fighting games like this in general. If you like it, you might want to look into this one now, which will cost you $25. If you’re not in any rush in playing this, then wait till it’s $10 or less.
