4 Flawless VictoryWebslinger | 24/11/2008 | See all Webslinger's reviews (10)This really is the Mortal Kombat you know and love.The DC characters are very powerful and yet well balanced with the MK characters. The special moves are ace and yet it never resorts to button mashing. Its more a game of timing and countering your opponents moves.The special moves are visually awesome (most notably Captain Marvels) and despite some seemingly unfair special moves that seem impossible to counter (I'm looking at you Flash) there is always a way to counter or a character you can use to overpower them. The single player story mode is strong (although the voice acting is cheesy and at some points a little lame - However their is some genuinely funny dialogue) it's basically just a tenuous set-up to get both sets of characters in the ring.Arcade mode sees the return of the towers, whereby you work your way through a list of characters (you can choose to fight just MK or just DC or a mixture of both) with every character having an alternate ending sequence.Online mode is everything you could have hoped form. Out of the 50 or so fights I've had I only experienced one bit of nasty lag, and that was on release day. There has been no lag since.Playing your mates online is easy thanks to a user friendly lobby creation system. But offline you can manually adjust the character AI mid fight in practice sessions to really perfect your skills.The collectors edition comes with a cool comic that serves the purpose of setting the scene of the game whilst your at work before you get home to play the game. The free poster is cool but useless if your over the age of 17. But the metal tin is cool. Whether it's worth an extra fiver is a matter of preference. There are no extra characters with the special edition.All in all, it's good solid fighter with great online support and a fun single player campaign.
