    The fun is the same with either version  

    Liu Kang has been a fan favorite since the beginnings of Mortal Kombat and he returns in all his glory in Mortal Kombat vs DC Universe a fun, entertaining and entirely satisfying video game for the Xbox 360 and Playstation 3 Game Consoles. He still has all his signature moves you remember and a few new ones that will leave his opponent sleeping like a baby if they're used properly. Link Blazing Blasts into Dragon's Tail and use Attack 1 as the finisher to score an impressive 32% damage to your opponent. Liu Kang is a good character to play keep away, stay away with as his powerful melee attacks and his ability to toss out projectile attacks at any height.

    In this article, I'll show you some of the great ways to really play your Liu Kang character to the max so you can beat any opponent.
