I have to say I was skeptical about this title when it was first announced. Another fighting game about DC comics? Seemingly about some sort of civil war? Sounded kind of 'meh.' However when I realised Netherrealm (The guys who resurrected the corpse of the Mortal Kombat franchise) were behind it, I warmed up to the idea. And boy am I glad I did. The story mode is entertaining and is useful for giving a crash course on various members in the 20+ character roster. Hell it's actually a decent plot too (And by fighting game standards it's bloody Shakespeare since most of those games don't have much of a plot other than 'TITS'). Concerning Superman being pushed over the limit and forced to become an extreme Knight Templar. There's plenty of shenanigans with alternate universes to boot. The mechanics are solid, many of the characters able move fluidly and most of them feeling unique in their own ways (Though some of them have some clear MK influences. Captain Marvel is basically Raiden and Deathstroke is Stryker with a mask on.) The Super Moves are insanely satisfying to watch, and the various arenas are all pretty fun to fight in (Though some are just recoloured versions of other arenas.) The game is fairly Batman-heavy though, with an irksome number of Batman characters and Batman-related arenas present in the game. In addition the 'Clash' mechanic in the game is pretty fucking annoying, since it makes no logical sense most of the time and is little more than a cheap way for losing characters to recover a third of their health. All things considered the good outweighs the bad. If you're a fan of fighting games you should give this game a buy. It'll be a good way to pass the time and I imagine there'll be plenty of DLC to add lifespan to the game. And it's pretty much a must-buy for any DC comics fan.
