The game is very near its official release day, and ahead of that we've taken it for the review spin, running all 24 DC characters (out of the box) through their paces in both the campaign mode and multiplayer.

The good news is, across the board, this is one very, very solid fighting game. It's classic NetherRealm but manages to actually ingest some new life into the genre with wildly interactive environments that not only help in the tactical side of things, but are also essentially characters unto themselves.

Hey Steve, found a mistake in your review. It says "Batman beating up Superman", it should actually be the other way around. kthanks

So, what are the controls like? Is it like mortal kombat with the block button?

There is a demo on Xbox live Khel. I downloaded it the other day. Haven't had a chance to play it yet.

i think the combat is more complex than MK, you have a lot more to worry about. There isn't a block button, its more like street fighter where you hold back or down depending on the incoming attack. Also can play it like MK where you tap the buttons - down forward, or just quarter circle like in SF.

pressing back on the d-pad or analogue is block, like classic MK

Oh cool, I'll have to grab the demo and try it out. Though, I think I'll probably get it anyway, it sounds pretty awesome. I was hoping for a block button though, I'm more used to that. Guess I'll just have to adapt :p

MK never utilised back for block - MK1 through 9 all used a button.

Pressing back was a Street Fighter thing, definitely SFII anyway, can't remember about the others.

MK never had back block, never ever ever

Its pretty good, controls are taking a bit of getting used to for me though. Its a bit like Marvel, theres a light, medium and heavy attack, then a 'special' button, and then your heavy attack is also a launcher. Doesn't map too well to the MK joystick I have though which is a bit of a shame
