Teens and mature pre-teens

A great party game but the story is overly difficult. THe more squimish can turn off the blood but this does not stop body and clothing damage. The later can reveal female breasts

It is a bit violent but not too violent , It is only like Tekken and Soulcalibur in terms of Violence. Yes , there is blood , but it is VERY small and unrealistic you can turn it off but it will not make much of a difference since the blood is only small and very unrealistic. Age Range : 9 - 13. This is a good substitution if you cannot get Mortal Kombat. P.S : I REALLY do not understand why the website says 15+ because to be honest it can really fit in to the E 10+ rating without the blood , maybe.

Nice fighting game...reason for Teen rating

This is a great fighting game and interesting story mode. Very nice that you can turn blood off. I thought this would be good enough when my 9 old son was watching. Because some of the characters are kind of scary looking, he had nightmares. Follow the Teen recommended rating and play it safe. Otherwise, it makes a good rental for adults.

mortal kombat vs dc universe is a waste of time and $$$

This game is the second worst in the series, obviously after Armageddon. This game is no fun at all, with a disappointing decreased amount of gore and blood, weakly entertaining fatalities that don't even spatter the floors with blood, and a disappointing way to try to make heroes fit in with "heroic brutalities". This game was an absolute waste, and I still can't believe I actually enjoyed this game over Tekken 6! But just for a fact, one of the Joker's fatalities actually made it on to become the basis of a Shang Tsung fatality in MK9. In other words, this game is a terrible attempt to bring back bloodless fighting like a Street Fighter copy, and it definitely shouldn't ever be bought by fans who know their fight. It's #2 on the worst MK list, and it's got #2 smeared all over it.

Ok Game

I am an MK fan for a while and im a little disapointed in this gamme.The Fatalities Suck but the fighting is nice,but alot of people who get it want to blood and gore in there Mortal Kombat.(like me)This game was kinda intended for smaller ages.Kids may play this and want a new one(trouble)and the new one Will have Blood.I suggest you rent this one because you can beat it in 2 days....I Recommend, MK Deception for some real MK.That isnt all soft,its very cheap now about 10 bucks

This fan of MK doesnt like it.

Being a hardcore fan of the MK series, I was extremely disappointed with how toned down they made the game. Maybe its just me, but MK just isnt MK without the hard core fatalities and arena traps.

Fun with some pretty brutal violence

This game is soooooooooooo cool! The fighting is very intense with awesome special moves. The graphics are a little cartoony, but in a good sense. Really, the concern is the violence. It is pretty brutal with some blood (that can be turned off). And to the person who wants fatalities: JUST LOOK THEM UP ON GOOGLE!!!! (or Bing or Yahoo. Doesnt matter.)

Perfect for tweens, despite the "T" rating.

This game is perfect for kids wanting to play the Mortal Kombat games. The Mortal Kombat franchise has been marked as the most violent game series of all time. Nevertheless, this game turns that around, adding DC comics characters such as Superman, The Joker, and even Captain Marvel. There are still "Fatalities", which are finishing moves such as stabbing your opponent, shooting them, or even turning their body around backwards. Frequently, blood splatters, but it can be turned off in the settings. The "Fatalities" are less gruesome than other games in the franchise such as Mortal Kombat X. Some of the characters wear revealing clothing, (Sonya Blade, Catwoman, and Wonder Woman). There is no foul language, but the narrator says "you SUCK" occasionally. The game is fairly easy to play, but mastering certain combos are a challenge. There is no sort of drinking or smoking.
