Kotaku article with trailer video.
As much as I enjoy 'Mortal Kombat' -- which is probably far too much -- this looks...well, terrible.
Well, I'm sure the gameplay will be just as good as that of the recent 'Mortal Kombat' -- though I don't think gameplay is the big selling feature for that franchise -- but, I'm the art direction and the general feel that's being portrayed in the trailer is...not what I want from my DC comics. Flash wearing some ridiculous armour. Soloman Grundy with a back full of knives. Very few things rank higher on my Not Fun Chart than angry Superman yelling and shooting people with his heat vision.
Also, there's 'Mortal Kombat vs. DC' from a few years back to consider, and that game was not great.
Still, considering that there's only a limited roster revealed at this point, there's still a chance that I might be able to beat up Batman with Green Arrow, and that would be very tempting....
