I usually don't get into fighting games but tt was really entertaining and a great story. My girlfriend (who really isn't into fighting games) said, "It's like watching a movie and playing a game at the same time." What a fun game. The story is great and the dialog is pretty clever. The survivor mode is really fun. No one can stay on top long in that mode so it doesn't seem so impossible to knock the top guy off the ladder. The ability to use the environment as a weapon makes the game really fun and dynamic. People can use the map selection in their strategy. In the past the environment has always been a pretty picture you chose from now it's actually part of the game and each fight. On a side note Doomsday is broken, haha. Even if you can't play online it is a great game to play locally with friends. Pick your favorite super hero and duke it out!
