Kratos is the sh*t
he's not slow you lie

Shmotz2789d ago

He's powerful and has range but he really is slow.

CrimsonEngage2789d ago

Slow or not he's broken. Some of his animations aren't even complete.

Not trying to take anything away from Kratos, but I have noticed that having that exclusive character in a game is cool for about a week or two. After that, you kinda forget about them and go back to the originals.

Now I say that with experience from many games that try to throw something popular in to get more people to buy.

the more the merrier.

if you are a good player, you can kick ass with any characters.

I've seen guys do crazy combo in tekken with a characters I though that can never do a combo.

You have to know how to use him. I've won lots of online matches with him!! There's pros and cons with every fighter in the game. I think Sub-Zero is slow.

warrior99882789d ago

then you use cyber sub zero ultimate sub zero

farrelljade2789d ago

not calling you a liar but i havent been able to play online with kratos, or at all for that matter because of the PSN breach! would you care to explain to me how your playing online?

Kingscorpion19812788d ago

I'm talking about before the PSN went down!

Isn't it a bit late to ask?

True, but it would be cool if a someone like Master Chief is added as a DLC character sometime in the future.

Godmars2902789d ago

But it means jack for sales. Whichever character/franchise fanbase they planned to pander to will be less likely to buy a specific version of MK after the fact. Halo fans who were already planning on getting MK aren't going to turn around and buy another copy just because MC is coming as DLC. Likewise MS isn't all that likely to simply give something like that after the game's been released. In otherwords it would be paid DLC.

Disagree away.

Not only that MC doesn't really work as well. Kratos is a button smashing vigilante in his own game. He transfers nearly perfectly into the MK world. He even has the gods in his story so his own little story within the game worked well.

Other than MC who you gonna throw in there? There is a lot of choices with MS as a majority of them are FPS and Shooter based.

If they wanted to draw sales in to them, they would work with Activision and put in Ghost from COD. Since all the Xbots think COD is a 360 game first and foremost.

EYEamNUMBER12789d ago

games been out at this point i don't think the people who bought the game already even care

k-dillinger2789d ago

i'll love to see they avatar get their heads ripped off or impaled so we won't look at them again lol

Wolfie2789d ago

no but free exclusive character is always welcome, btw i cant see any Xbox mascot in MK
