No. It poses a more different type of challenge than the past mk fighters.

I basically agree with Predator on this one. I thought Mk vs Dc established a good basic game mechanic from which they could have built a truly good sequel if given enough time.

While I have issues with Mk vs Dc like the teen rating, lack of characters, and the generic backgrounds, it was indeed fun to play.

I never really like the last trilogy of games. The only thing that really had me playing mkd and mka was the damn good returning cast of characters and to see the story advance. Then mka came out and while it has every character ever, it destroyed the story in my opinion.

At this point I wouldn't actually mind a reboot that incorporates everything that we know now.

The last group of games was very restricting when it came to juggle combos and linking special moves together. Not cool.

But seriously though Predator you didn't like MK4? It had a nice cast and after some of the more over the top humorous aspects of the mk3 versions I felt that mk4 had a near perfect blend of darkness, seriousness, while having a few sprinkles of humor. Quan Chi beating you with your own leg, Reptile wiping your blood from his mouth after eating your face etc.

While the visuals might have left a little to be desired, the atmosphere was one thing I think they got perfect. I also enjoyed the gameplay which pulled back on the button combos of mk3. Something ironically mkda brought back in full force.

I played Armageddon way more than this.

I was done with this game in less than a month.

MKA took me at least 2 months to fully consume, mainly due to the KAK mode and the enormous roster.

This game was severely lacking replay value and gameplay variety (modes). It's extremely repetitive.

ThePredator151 ---> So you think MK vs DC is better because of it's gameplay? I really hope you don't consider yourself as a fan of the series.... A MK game is not just about gameplay,it's about a story,a feeling,a universe and also,gore! Yes,gore is essential in a MK game,belive it or not. It's because of it's gore aspect if the game became so popular and unique.Removing blood from this game was a big mistake,they ripped an essential element of the series.

So don't try to make me belive MK vs DC was better because of his gameplay,you are only making yourself look like a casual gamer.



I really hope you don't consider yourself a fan of the series. MK games were NEVER about the story until the gameplay fell to shit. Gore was a mild part of the series. People first said hey there is this new game at the arcade where you fight. Its like street fighter but with real people and it has blood. YOu play it a few times the blood and fatalities aren't a big deal anymore you play cuz it was decent gameplay. Up until MK 4 where it was garbage then along comes "fans" like yourself. Who claim its about the story. Bull fucking shit. Nobody in the arcades gave a fuck about the story.

Bottom line anybody who thinks this isn't a good fighter is clueless. This is the first MK to have an OFFLINE tournament scene since UMK 3. That alone makes this the best mk in a LONG time.

Eh my understanding was you're not so hot at MKA and that is likely why you didn't get into this game. The top players from MKA had probelms with MKDC because it requires a LOT more skill to play. The gameplay engine is MUCH deeper than MKA and much better done. It is lost on most of the mk players because they're just not good at fighters.

If I sucked that badly, I could just leave the difficulty on very easy. Think a little.

That's not why I dislike the game. It's just boring. There's too many annoying characters, the visuals are mediocre and uninspiring, and there's nothing to do but fight.

Yeah, the 2D games had nothing but repetitive fighting to offer as well, but they had stunning visuals (designs, moves, and finishers) to keep us awed and compelled.

MKDA - MKA had fighting, plus various modes and gameplay, exploration, etc. MKDC offers shit. Plus it's downgraded for a fucking Superman audience. I was bored and done with that garbage after 2 weeks.

I think you have to be a DC fan to really enjoy it. With it's "T" rating, it's obviously more for that audience.

unfortunately on that note I agree there are many positives to this game but not enough A/B positive blood (GORE) is what I mean. I would like to leave a longer paragraph here but I am using PS3 remote no keyboard yet. Anyways LONGLIVE MK!!! Atleast we have a game to complain about I mean c'mon yall barely realize how much pressure Boon & Co. were probably under with looming bankruptcy and a game that was on the razor's edge of extinction as a MK VETERAN since MK 1 was released and I followed every game after loyally...I'm willing to give them (MIDWAY) a pass on this one given the nature of the situation...we are lucky to have a game to play and I think some of you forget that. Just my opinion,take it or leave it. PSN ID: LiveMind furiousfuriousfurious

The worst?Nah not really.

Nothing for me will top UMk3 and that probably has to do with the fact that I played it so much as a kid in the arcade and at home and the gameplay for me anyways back then just felt right and i couldn't get over it.So now with MkvsDC I dont hate it or even dislike it anymore,its grown on me actually but still I find myself playing and thinking,"Wow is Gotham city really this boring to look at?And why?"Its strange to play and wonder why theres nothing even going on in the backgrounds while you're fighting.

Just cause its rated T for Teen shouldnt make you not want to play it and for those who use it as a reason to say its the worst in the series cause of the rating,well thats just lame and a poor excuse of a reason to dislike any game imo.If its T or M shouldn't matter as long as you're having fun playing the game,right?

There were lots of stuff that was rushed,like well everything.The graphics were better then the last 3 mk games but it didn't make up for the stages to be that boring to play in.But every day and again I find myself popping it in just to see if theres still ppl playing it online and play like one match and go back to my current games i.e NHL10 and NGS2.

Do I forgive them just cause it was rushed?NOPE I sure don't.For some reason other game companies can rush games out and end up better and I expect the same from them.I don't pop my games in and play and be like,oh its ok for this to suck cause it was rushed,I dont mind wasting my money.If I pay $60 I expect nothing less then to have a fun game to play and I accept no excuses for why it sucks if it does.Oh and what happen to patches for this game which I heard they were going to put out to fix little things that shouldt take that much time to fix?If capcom can do with with MvC2 on psn and xbla and other game companies can do it to show they care about their products then I expect the same from Midway/WB now.

So when the next MK game comes out and yes I'm gonna buy it cause I just really love playing a new MK game and owning a new one,if its broken they better patch it cause theres no more excuses that we should accept on why it sucks and why it isnt patched or why they cant do it.You either stay on par with what other game companies are doing to fix their games that already come out or you let someone else do your job that you can't do anymore.I know that sounds harsh and it probably is but we as gamers deserve the best and deserve things to be fix when we spend our hard earn money on it.

Sorry for ranting on here. I wanted to add something here. I don't hate the Mk team and honestly I am glad their trying it seems to make a good MK game but by what I said above i mean this.I just really want them to make a really great MK game and I hope their expectations for the next MK game is nothing short of GREAT.Heres hoping they finally learn from their mistakes in the past and get this one made to what we all want it to be and that is great. BTW could someone start something somewhere where UMK3 comes out on the psn and MK2 for xbla?

Well for one, I feel that this game sucked because of the fatalites and short story. I mean I'm a huge Mortal Kombat fan and will choose no other fighting game over MK and I wanted this game to be M-Rated, that way we all can be happy that a DC Comic character got their head removed. Mortal Kombat vs DCU isn't the worst MK, nor is it the best. To me Mortal Kombat Vs DCU looks a hell of a alot better than Street Fighter 4 because it looks so damn realistic and the special edition cover looked amazing, good job Alex Ross.

Gameplay: felt like MK was on the right track by making the gameplay seem 2D. It's been a long time since I seen Liu Kang peform a high dragon ball move in the air. I don't mind a little side stepping, but classic MKs didn't need to add them. The combos system, well, felt a bit Tekken-ish and Street Fighter-ish, but passable, I don't mind having it on the next MK, for the combo system is a hell of a lot better than the last trilogy of MK (deadly alliance, Deception, and Armageddon). My favorite special moves are Liu Kang: Dragon Tail follow by any input X B and Y, Scorpion: spear and teleport punch, Sub-Zero: ice projectile, icy counter, and icy slide. Most from the Mortal Kombat side, but DC was alright. Klose Kombat, good, I love the counters moves they do on this game. Free Fall Kombat, Cool, yet a DBZ-ish. Basically saying is the gameplay is alright, but a bit slow.

Graphics: Like I said, better than ever, I say the graphics on MK vs DCU are the best MK graphics yet, a lot better than MK4, Gold, DA, Deception, and definitely Armageddon, a where I had high expectations of before it was release. Most of the women on this game sure looked sexy, not to be a pervent, but MK got booty, Kitana, Catwoman, and Wonder Woman have big booties :) *whistling charmly*. The Arenas on this game, MK needs to fight in Cities or Streets more because MK3 had that and made MK fight anywhere in the world, not just deserted place or Battle arenas. Sad part, no death traps.

Story Mode: Well, 8 DC Chapters and 7 MK Chapters equals 15 Chapter to be exact. I thought the story had a few bad parts and a few good parts. First off, Raiden and Superman both beated their biggest enemy and at the same time, destroyed a portal where both Darkseid and Shao Kahn were about to escape into, Quan Chi should have been more fast enough to run and escape, but let Shao Kahn hit him. While both MK and DC portals were destroyed, it created Dark Kahn, and he's very overpowered, more overpowered than Superman and Raiden, proof on Arcade mode. The story was short and ended where both main boss villians were on different universes, Darkseid on MK, Shao Kahn on DC. DC trapped Kahn in the Phantom Zone, and MK trapped Darkseid in MK Hell where he was left locked with chain, not a good viewing ending. Well to be honest, it was fun.

Kombo Challenge: This IS the hardest mode on MK vs DCU, but once you get the hang of it, it shouldn't be so hard. Shang Tsung's and the Joker's challenges are the hardest one to master for me. Shao Kahn's was the easiest.

Music: I like how epic they sound, Metropolis, Gotham City, UN Station, and Fortress of Solitude are my favorite tracks on this game. Wu Shi Acedemy could have more of that chinese roots that flows with most chinese music. Raiden's Temple was a been weak. Music was good, but Armageddon has better music than this.

Basically what I just said there is that MK vs DCU is good, but not the best. Though I think it's still looks and play better than the past MKs, the downfall begins with the fatalites, well at least it did had fatalites, without them it would have been the worst. This proves that if MK does fight any fighting game or comic book company, they will limit it greatly. I give Mortal Kombat vs DCU a 3.5 out of 5.0

let me just give my opinion real quick. 1st off, mkda-mka gameplay wise was terrible imo. why? Well unless u dont mind stickin to one or two characters every time u play, u would have to sit there and master every fighter in order to know how to use them. In other words these titles were not games u could just pick up and play whereas mkvsdc was.

On the other hand, mkvsdc felt alot more like the classics and that was a huge plus for me. Think about it, when it came to mk from the very begining the fighting mechanics were never complicated and till this day mk2 is still fun to play. So with mkvsdc, any true mk fan can appreciate that the mk team attempted to revisit its roots. Remember, back in the day the controls were only highkick, lowkick, or highpunch low punch. Look were that got them, theres a whole f'n website dedicated to us fans.

The only bad thing i can say about mkvsdc is that once u have finished everything, it just gets boring. Unless u can play online but i cant unfortunately. I can name a few other things that are wrong but im sure it has already been said. Overall tho mkvsdc is an ill f'n game imo.

i honestly thought the gameplay was a lot better than the whole deadly alliance through armageddon era. i found that during that era, all i did was use the same combo over and over, and the combat wasn't very fluid, and was based on pulling off dial-a-combos sooo bad.

don't get me wrong, i know that mk vs. dc has some combos like that, but i felt this game made me feel like i actually had control over "creating" my own combos, instead of pausing the game, reading a long ass combo string, trying to memorize it, then unpause, and try and unload the combo. it was just, frustrating and very lackluster.

i feel that mk vs. dc's base gameplay is something they should build off on in later games.

my thoughts on the game is this i love mk but dc never again think about what mk charaters couldve taken there spots i miss the galllons of blood lol thats what made mk so special the deadly fatalities.but now i have to see them censoring shet like jokers fatality and what type of fatality is bATMAN DOING NOTHING excuse the caps its boring now i cant even do a dam pop combo anymore

Call my comment stupid but, in a way, I'm kinda sad they aren't going to make another crossover with DC. As "unclassic" as it happened to be, it still was appealing and original, and could have been a fresh beginning after rather bland and done-in-the-last-minute stories of the past two games.

Alliances between former sworn opponents are a great piece of innovation, too. Pact between Liu Kang and Shang Tsung is an event on par with killing of Liu Kang in MKDA, in my opinion.

I do not comment much but I do wish to express my opinion. I will not even give MK vs DC a chance. I have watched the fatalities and storylines on youtube but have been very disappointed.
I have been there from the beginning with the original Mortal Kombat ( I remember using most of my money from working at Burger King to spend hours at the arcade - When they existed - to play this game ) and thoroughly enjoyed Mortal Kombat 2 ( Same thing as before but different job ) Part 3 did seem as though they were trying, it just didn't feel right. While Ultimate came shortly after and proved that they were going in the wrong direction which proves my case with Mortal Kombat 4, ( I wont include the trilogy since it was a console only port ).Since then, the 3-D style of gaming, to me, seems to have ruined Mortal Kombat for good. Proof of it is in the latest incarnation of MK vs DC, extremely toned down fatalities (if you can even call them that ) and horrible storyline.

Not sure what Boon was thinking with this version let alone many of the others but I think he and John should rejoin and perhaps follow a " Street Fighter 4 " Setup with the backgrounds rendered in 3D while the gameplay remains on a traditional 2D plane. No reason why they cant use the digitized sprites again, I'm sure the technology has advanced much more from then. No luck with that anyway since Midway became bust. Oh well, one can wish can't they?

Well I don't reply a lot either, but this topic is very interesting because of the many different opinions. Makes me feel free to give mine smile.

FIrst of all, gameplay wise this was a really good step in the right direction, especially compard to the MKDA-MKA trilogy. I've played MKA WAY more than I've played MKDC (In that sence I'm the same als QueenSindel, it took em more time to try out all the characters dan MKvsDC). And in the good times, a lot of players weren't KAK players or cheaters, like in the latter stages. I've plyed 1600+ games online and that is an enormous amount compared with every onther game I've played online.

Why saying MKvsDC was better gameplay wise you would expect? Well, I don't really know, but c'mon everyone who knows a little bit about fighting games experienced that right? It was a fun game, really the first few times I've played it but I lost interest WAY sooner than with MKA (which was really broken in gameplay, let's face that fact).

Taking all these facts into account, I cannot deny all the stuff outside the gameplay made MKA an enjoyable game to me. But don't me wrong here, I really hope they built further on the gameplay from MKvsDC, which has a future, way more than the broken mess we had before that! MKvsDC's gameplay, better mingames, more itnresting and interactives arena's and more gore, that'll get my attention anytime!
hahaha....

MK vs DC is worse than past MK games, I think the past trilogy of DA, D and MKA were alot better.

MK vs DC just felt uninspired, I didnt like the way any of the characters looked, they got rid of the unique styles and stances in favore of generic combos. Hit detection seemed all over the place and the combat overal is more broken than past games.

I think MKA is still the best.

I really do not know what kind of experience you hd, but the above is generally not the case. MK vs. DC is superior in gameplay to MKDA-MKD-MKA.

I agree on the removal of martial arts though. But what does hit detection being all over the place mean?

Here's a general rundown on the fighting game communities view of MK games:

MK1-2: No depth at all

MK3: One of the best 2D fighters of the 90's

MK4: Brokensauce

MKDA-MKA: Unplayable crapfest. Worst fighters ever

MKDC: Huge improvement, but still not up there with SF and Tekken in terms of depth


Pretty much agree, although I did enjoy MK4 and MKDA mainly because I didn't play them so competitively.

Abso-fucking-lutely

As the ONLY Mortal Kombat game I never purchased, I can honestly say this game was down-right terrible. It's like the casual gamer's wet dream with the Mortal Kombat roster they selected. But it's not so much the Mortal Kombat roster that I hate, it's the DC roster. Right then and there, the ten DC characters that were IN in the game meant ten MK games that were NOT in the game.

But literally, just the sight of DC characters in a mortal Kombat game is just stupid. Like Star Wars characters in the Soul Calibur franchise, it's just ridiculous. I was never into comics books, so there's obviously a huge bias, but simply put, the presence of the DC characters just ruined the game. Period.

Worst MK game in my opinion...

.....

.......

OH total shame because I LOVED the gameplay mechanics. Fortunately, the MK9 trailer looks like it will be using the same fighting system.

I enjoy the bonus characters in the Soulcalibur games, especially since they aren't taking the spots of any existing characters. They're just bonuses.

Anyways, today was the first day I ever played Mortal Kombat vs. DCU. My uncle was like 'hey I want game points on my XBox for the combo challenges', and I was like, 'sure I loved the combo challenges in MK:DA'. Well, I don't know what the fuck is up, but holy shit either MK vs. DCU sucks, or the XBox Dpad sucks. So after completely failing at that, I decided to go online.

And holy shit what the fuck was wrong with this game online? Both characters in my matches would just keep floating in the air and gliding across the screen. I think it had something to do with blocking? Either way it was stupid as fuck and this is the worst MK I have ever played. Like, I mean I've given plenty of hours into the past titles, and probably only one hour into this one, but the thing is with old games I had fun, and enjoyed it, and continued to want to play. With this one everything just seemed broken.
