Some of our more jaded readers may poo-poo Mortal Kombat vs. DC Universe's softer, more broad reaching one-on-one violence, but there's one organization who has no qualms with the T-rated brawler. That would be the American Academy of Child & Adolescent Psychiatry which has reviewed the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 game, finding that it "will likely facilitate an adult joining a teenager in video game play." Not a sexy box quote by any means, but maybe better than we were expecting. T. Atilla Ceranoglu, M.D. weighs in with his (or her) opinion on the latest Mortal Kombat, talking up the game's decreased gore and parental control options. That and "the easy learning curve and easy to use controls make it quite manageable for those unfamiliar with video gaming." Is Midway swimming in the seas of the Blue Ocean?! Mortal Kombat vs. DC Universe [AACAP]
I'll be the odd one out and say I actually LIKED MK vs DC. Armageddon felt really shallow, and the new Mortal Kombat fixed pretty much everything that was wrong with the other 3D versions. So what if there isn't as much gore? Isn't it awesome enough to see the Dark Knight and Raiden tear each other new ones? And even without the gore, the fatalities are still brutal.
Don't go marking this MK off because "OMG NOT ENOUGH BLOOD!" You're acting like the little 13-year-olds that populate "Teh Halozz" and are quick to call anyone who's beating them a faggot.
