Opinions on the roster

#1 Edited by alexl86 (619 posts) -

The roster was leaked not too long ago(yesterday I think). I'll just put up the entire roster far all to see.

MK
Baraka
Jax
Kano
Kitana
Liu Kang
Raiden
Scorpion
Shang Tsung
Shao Kahn
Sonya
Sub-Zero

DC
Batman
Catwoman
Darkseid
Deathstroke
Flash
Green Lantern
Joker
Lex Luthor
Shazam(Captain Marvel)
Superman
Wonder Woman(Forgot about her, sorry...)

I'll put my opinions out there first.

MK: It's a superb roster of MK characters. It's not perfect, they still lack Johnny Cage, Kung Lao would be fun to have, but overall it's a great roster. I could do without Kano, but I don't care that much.

DC: I can't really say it's any worse than the MK roster. Brainiac or Doomsday would've been better than Lex for a fighting game, but overall it's a great roster. Could've used a few more characters not from Batman or Superman though...

So, what do you think?

I'm pretty upset that they replaced Kabal with Flash. I'm just glad that they didn't try to somehow work in Aquaman...

I dont know why they put in baraka obama.

Johnny cage is the only one i see missing.

edit - wait a minute, where the fuck is reptile?

Somewhere my friends and I spoofed this game, and I haven't gotten the disk to edit it yet, but it is hilarious...Good list. Looks fun.

I'm not sure about Lex Luthor. I mean, he doesn't fight. What's he going to do, throw money at them???

Apart from that I think its great.

WTF where's Wonder Woman... didn't they say she was going to be in it? If she isn't... it's kind of silly to leave out one of the big three from DC

yeh i was pretty sure they said she would be in it?

Has this leak been confirmed to be accurate anyway?

Wonder Woman has to be in it. With a confirmation from another time. And the 1up article has her included. Plus they mentioned the achievements there's a WW achievement so whew... I was ready to not even play this game if they left out WW. But I'm still very VERY disappointed in DC's roster. It could've been a lot better.

Sorry, my bad. She was confirmed earlier, forgot to add her.

The roster have been confirmed by Midway, looking for a link to the press release...

You know. Reptile would be a lot of similar looking ninjas for 11 chars. And then would you rather leave out sub or scrop? But why the hack has subzero a teleport? I just wanna freeze people :D. Why did they leave Kung lao out? I like Kitana, but I think Sonya is boring. Also why Jax? Is he so popular? I don't know, not alot of MY favourite MK chars in there. At least I have Raiden and Sub Zero (I miss Kabal, Stryker (Ninja-Robot!) and Kung Lao).

Do you think there's a slight chance that they will have DLC with additional characters? That would be pretty darn lame. :|

No Doomsday, no Johnny Cage. Disappointing.

I would be disappointed in no Reptile if they didn't completely wreck him when they brought the series into 3D. If it was UMK3 style Reptile, now we're talking.

I'm not a big MK fan, so I can't say much about the roster. But from what I've seen, the characters all look pretty cool. As for DC, aside from Batman (and in the odd case that Alex Mercer does indeed join the DC universe) I'm not the biggest fan of DC. I'm not going to lie though, this game is looking great. I'm thinking about it...

I'm not bothered about Shao Kahn or Sonya. It would definitely have been nice to see Kung Lao instead.
