Underrated: NetherRealm Studios puts the K back in Kombat

PSU takes a look at game developers that brought us great games this console generation, but didn't get the attention they deserved. (Culture, Industry, Injustice: Gods Among Us, Mortal Kombat, NetherRealm Studios, Next-Gen, PC, PS Vita, PS3, Xbox 360)

they really are a great studio. glad they brought back MK to its roots.

cant wait to see more of them in the next gen

Hope they keep up with the innovation to their next MK game. They higher'd the bar when it comes to fighting games.

" They higher'd the bar "

They raised the bar* (Didn't mean to be a d*** about it- just correcting you that's all).

With regard to innovation; I recall Ed Boon (I think) stating that they will be looking to innovate the MK formula for their next outing. I don't know how they will do this but I can't wait to see a next-gen MK game!

I just wish they would design a game for all levels of players. How about a choose your destiny based on your skill. TIER 1 would only allow players to use charecter specials and no combos. TIER 2 could limit the amount of combo hits. TIER 3 would be for the hardcore player, it could play just as last MK. I just miss the days of choosing multiple characters in versus.

I wish they would make a new Gauntlet, since WB owns the IP. Even if it's only a PSN/XBLA game. Man I would be happy they just released Gauntlet Dark Legacy in HD on PSN/XBLA.

I would kill for a new Gauntlet! Friggan love those games! especially Dark Legacy!

With the Online capabilities we have now, it is really surprising that there hasn't been a HD version.

Netherrealm always delivers good games, i wasn't optimistic about Injustice, but now its my most played game

Netherrealm is amazing. I wish they could do a Streets of Rage game, or remake Bayou Billy into a game that's actually good. Those were the face-beating games I played as a kid :)

True that!

With the crap hit detection in MK9 and Injustice? I don't think so.

Love MK and Love the Legendary Ed Boon. :)

MK4-Armageddon were forgetable

i hope their next game is a fully fledged mortal kombat single player/co op adventure action fighting game ala shaolin monks with deep stories going through all the characters etc and developing their stories with awesome cg cutscenes to deliver it all!
