Well that's .... interesting.

I haven't really made my mind up yet if this game's concept is a good idea.

I think it looks a stupid idea, No matter what rubbish they come out with about how superman can get beat up sonya it's just wrong and i'll be staying well clear of this.

I warmed up to the idea of this game, it could be pretty fun, and I actually really like the character designs thus far. However.. The animation and gameplay in general looks very stiff, slow, and clunky. Instead of using a more fluid, free form fighting system, like Soulcailbur or Tekken it seems like they're still going with dial-a-combo.

It was outdated with the past few MK games, but releasing a PS3/360 game like that is totally unacceptable.

It's been explained, and actually makes sense. Move on, and find something else to complain about :P

It looks ok graphically but the animation and movement are just terrible.

I like the crossovers theyre doin in fighting games, lets you get decent fighting games out of characters that usual fail in the that genre.
Plus it lets the game appeal to fans of other franchises, yes it may be a cheap way to earn extra cash but if they can do it then why not.
I wouldn't even contemplate either SC or MK, but with these crossovers...yea sure, i'll bite.
As for the people saying they dont fit, why not? it's not like these games have sweeping story arcs or any sense of greater purpose, theyre just fighting games that pit one character against another and as long as they are balanced and not cheap then they fit perfectly.

The whole superman is invincible etc or the force is all powerful doesnt even factor into it, it's called balance and fairness, puttin any invincible char into any game would be pointless, last i saw superman could die from punches in any superman game so why have issues with it here?

dude it's based on old school fighting principles.Move on, and find something else to complain about :).

seriously though your right, I think MK 3&4 were peaks in the series and none have come close since.

Its so retarded lol

You would think they would come up with a some unique fighting stances...

All this game is missing is Chuck norris

lol in the fourth pic, The Flash got a good uppercut on Sonya? and a very big mosquito. Two birds with one stone.

This just feels like a desperate way to draw attention to a doomed series.

About the game


What's up?
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker @KORNdog: Speaking of Spiders, I finished Technomancer yesterday. Fun game but dragged down by WAY too much backtracking and lack of different locations. (13 Hours ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker @KORNdog: I'm not far enough into the game yet but I heard the game world is very interesting and full of great quests with multiple choices. Those kinda things sound great to me. (13 Hours ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog i honestly think they'd do better making something on a smaller scale. like an isometric action RPG. that spiders (developer) could do with going that direction too. (14 Hours ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @Moonwalker: it just looks like a typical game from them to me. like they bit off more than they can chew and the results are just mediocrity across the board. (14 Hours ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker @KORNdog: the facial animations are bullshit yes, animations in general are passable, combat isn't nearly as bad as I expected though. The world so far has been great, very very nice indeed. (14 Hours ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @Moonwalker: it still looks all kinda of garbage though. lol (15 Hours ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker tearing was horrible, not to mention loading times. Plus it really doesn't look too bad either. Trees and foliage swaying in the wind, nice lighting. Good job PB. course all the jank is still there :) (15 Hours ago)
