In terms of a follow up, this was much better than the first one. Expanding the amount of DC characters used, creating a new system of items to collect and the interesting choices for guest characters make this game worth it. It also shows how much better Netherrelm studios are getting with their fighting games.
I liked it a lot, a HUGE Batman/DC fan, the MK game with the super hero skin was super enjoyable, but no matter what the gear stats rubbed me the wrong way. Crates, drops, levelling up gear, i don't want it or need it anywhere near a fighting game. Even though i enjoyed it a lot it just RUINED the whole thing for me. Big s hame.
