Mortal Kombat vs. DC Universe
MK vs. DC - The Finishing Moves So Far
Written By
View author's profile

Midway released the second of their MK vs DC finishing move videos to the masses today, which got me thinking... "wait, I never saw the first!" So I went on a bit of a mission and managed to find both which are below for your viewing pleasure.

Some of them seem a little tame, namely the superhero moves, but the Mortal Kombat character fatalities are as good as ever. They definitely lack that blood aspect that we're so used to though; damn Teen rating.

Subzero's was the only half-way decent one. They've toned down this game too much. Doesn't feel like the same brutalness of MK. It must be Teen.

Subzero's was decent but the others were very weak.

Very disappointing.

Why the hell is gametrailers asking for your birth date if the game is rated Teen? Lol, these finishing moves are corny and haven't these vids been posted up for a while already on gametrailers. Remember watching these couple weeks ago.

The first video had some decent ones but the only one good in the second vid was subzero's. Sigh.. Just not as good as they used to be.

Yes, this game is a plea for help from Midway and DC. Midway is in the toilet trying to get out (financially) and DC is hoping this will give them some kind of good rep.
After seeing this farce of a MK game, I pray this is the end of Midway.

those were pretty worthless, except for subzero. mortal kombat is a game that should never be rated teen and we can clearly see why

@ SNK - They were released to the general press today, but instead of me uploading and finding an age gate, I found them at Gametrailers. Some people don't scour the ends of the web looking for news; that's what we do for you guys ;)

Stonking terrible. And I've owned all of them (including one MK2 arcade cabinet). It looks like the Joker's was the only good one, with Sub-zero at least looking decent. They are all too short compared to the more recent games; it takes away from the humiliation factor.

I say they need to release two versions:
T-Teen and M-Mature

Hey guys, remember that every character has two finishing moves so there will totally be 20-30 fatalities. So they likely might have not shown us the best ones! For example The Joker has two fatalities and both of them are cool. Here's the first:

ha. on youtube is shows "killer" fatalities for batman and superman. theres actually a couple different ones for superman, but yeah, they're way better than these. picture quality is crap, but they're there so you can go see if the game is going to be as crappy as everyone's saying it will be.

so bad, I hope this game is to just try and get people to start buying these games again and maybe the next one can go back to Mature and it'll be good again. Rage Mode, Close Kombat, Freefall, the finishing moves, all look like utter garbage gayness

Hmm...Call me a wuss, but I don't like all the usual blood/gore. And yet, these moves do seem pretty lame. Subzero's and Catwoman's are probably my favorite out of what are shown, though.

They are going to ruin Mortal Kombat. With Street Fighter 4 coming out Midway should have countered with a stand alone MK game with all the old features revamped for the next gen consoles. And DC sucks except for the usual suspects.

Looks like the Devs used a Fatality on the game :[. Mortal Kombat + Teen = Fail. Then again, when was the last time Midway has actually made a good game?

the game seems like it will be good as a fighting game by it self....but as a continuation of the MK series this is an epic fail....fine i understand that somethings cant be done because DC has rules but no blood at all?...WTF is that all about?

Mortal Kombat:Armageddon or the latest one, for Nintendo DS, Ultimate Mortal Kombat?

But I have to agree though that it has been a small downfall all the time with Mortal Kombat, a bit by bit. But I think that this is will be a decent game and the confirmed pure MK game, Mortal Kombat 9 will be overwhelming.
Anyways, I'm buying this game.

Honestly who the fuck cares. If you wanted good fatalities so bad then maybe you could have supported Midway all these years instead saying every game since 3 sucked. Then they wouldn't have to appeal to more age groups. Get over it. I love how fatalities govern the quality instead of gameplay.

They weren't to bad for a teenager game. everyone is complaining and crying that it isnt brutal enough for a mortal kombat game but i guess everyone if blind to see that it Mk vs DC and you cant make it MK brutal and gory with Comic book heroes, think about that one and get over it

Don't knock it till you have played it! DC is the only reason why it is rated Teen. Midway way wanted it to be Mature but DC is a bunch of pansies. The official MK sequel will be out in 2009 or 2010... MK vs. DC is not a MK story related sequel

Its like street fighter vs. Marvel

Jesus christ alot of you are a bunch of whiners. "Oh noes, I don't have my 30 seconds of blood and guts per fight! This game will blow!"

Is that all most of you care about, is the blood factor? No wonder violent games these days get a bad rep...I'm no fan of either DC or MK moreso than I am of Marvel or SF (where were the blood an fatalites in MVC2? Oh wait, weren't any! Yet that game played awesome as fuck). As was said, don't knock the damn thing til you've tried it, an quit bitching about the blood you savages.

Armageddon sucked
the last great MK was Deception
great story line
great fighting system
and then Armageddon came along and nothing made sense
and now this MKvsDCU = M.K.R.I.P.
