People's Gamer writes: "After playing with the girls of Arcana Heart 3 , I felt the need for something different. Grant it AH3 is a great game with solid fighting mechanics and great 2D visuals, but I was in mood for something less pink and colorful and more dark and bloody. I needed to beat something up to a pulp, smash some skulls in and splatter gallons and gallons of my foe’s blood all over the arena floor. I needed over the top action, mixed with a cheesy yet enjoyable story, and some of the most gruesome finishing moves in gaming. I needed something with extreme Kombat that would put characters in Mortal danger from an invading realm. If you haven’t caught on by now, I’m talking about the new reboot, Mortal Kombat by NetherRealm Studios"
