As you can tell from our weekly polls, the majority of the community wanted a new character to be the 4th DLC character in Mortal Kombat. Well. Netherrealm Studios delivered. Freddy Kruger from Nightmare on Elm St. is in the game.
I'd be lying if I said I wasn't disappointed a bit. Sure its fun to have him in there...but he essentially is taking the place of someone far better in the MK universe.
At first I was like.."YEAAAH" Then I saw the gameplay and I was like, "Meh" I think he's the worse of all the DLC characters.
It kind of draws you out of the game a bit...I just don't think Freddy works as a MK character. I can understand Kratos completely but Freddy is just so random and I feel that its just gimmicky.
Yeah, I was gunna buy all of them eventually, but now I've decided that I'm gunna buy Kenshi tomorrow and wait till Tanya comes out.
Classic Krueger > New Krueger I hated how they changed his look sooo much, and sounded nothing like the original.
Nawh, it would have been gimmicky if he had been a Halloween DLC... just saying.
You understand Kratos but not Freddy? How does that make sense?
LMFAO. Wow. The trailer would have been better if he did some of his infamous taunting. He was too silent, but this just goes to show fans speak up and devs. will do what they can to get what you want in game, especially when it comes to DLC charactersl
Doesn't Freddy only wear 1 glove?
Yes he does only wear one glove. Guess accuracy doesn't mean anything any more.
I know heaven forbid they try something new. And of course once they do a certain amount of DLC characters they are forbidden from doing more.
Now that's a surprise!
freddy is all in good fun i dnt mind that at all
Exactly, with some of the comments in here complaining about it its like people forget this is a GAME and its supposed to be for fun and entertainment. Some people take video games way to seriously sometimes.
Jason would've been better
Let's just hope the author who writes about Jason being included knows kow to spell Voorhees. This guy somehow managed to get KruEger wrong, despite having access to the internet where looking things up is terribly easy.
What's next? Chucky?
LOL, Looks like there running out of ideas.
because they put ONLY ONE charac based on horror movies? facepalm/
Like more wont be inbound because of this. You must be new to gaming.
I wouldn't mind Pinhead being in there...
No the rumor is Blackula
How about a monter's cereals DLC with Booberry,Fruit Brute, Frankenberry, and Count Chocula?
probably have to pass on him, was waiting for someone else from the MK universe
Just doesn't seem like a right fit to me...I'd rather have Kenshi. edit: Clearly Kenshi is out...I'm saying I'd rather buy Kenshi than Freddy. DUH!
Kenshi is already available for download.
EDIT: Uhhh, then buy him already? DUH!
It's the 2010 freddy from the latest movie which is a little disappointing, no Robert englund, still, quite a well developed character from the looks of things!
I was expecting Robert Englund too. Why does he have 2 claws? The blood geyser fatality, on the other hand, was a great homage.
I wondered that too, could have made his combat a bit more varied if he only had 1 glove instead, oh well as much as it could have been better I'm still pretty amazed at the continued efforts of netherealm to bring us dlc that's actually unique
This is fucking brilliant! I love you Ed Boon!
BEST DLC EVER (Caps & I don't care:)
could of been shinnok
Wow. Really not sure how to feel about this one. It is pretty cool I guess.
expect jason to come as well.....i remember a story from an "inside source" a couple months back saying freddy and jason were gonna be dlc in time for halloween. wish they went with the old school freddy tho
This made me lol'd How about Guts from Berserk? I think he would do well, but there are licensing issues and Guts is a Japanese manga character, so it would be expected of him to be in a Japanese fighting game... *sigh* If Snake can get into Smash Bros then Guts has a chance lol
Dude, if Guts was to appear in MK, that would probably be the raddest thing to ever happen, and he'd probably end up being the most unbalanced character, haha. I think Guts' fighting style and weapon would probably fit better in Soul Cal though, however the violence in MK is more suited for him. A bit off-topic, but speaking of which, I'm still irritated that the Berserk game for PS2 was never localized. I hope with the new movies coming out that he has new games planned as well, and that this time they actually get a release in NA or EU. Heck, all it needs is subtitles and I'd import that day one!
Of course! Soul Calibur has always had a guest character since II... V seems to be shaping up quite well too I've seen gameplay for the PS2 game which you speak of, it looked quite good for an anime game and I too am excited for the upcoming movies :)
Wow, you people actually have a problem with him being in the game?.....someone different and new? To say there could've been a better person in his place is pretty opinion-ish. It's like me saying we should just put God (Islam, anyone?) into game; and every time he farts, the other person should disintegrate into ash....that would be the best character right?
wow,that was pretty disrespectful dude.I don't know if i should put you down for spam or trolling.
I dont think it was disrespectful, just stupid.
^Thank you. lol
What does Islam have to do with your incoherent rant?
Nothing, I was high on PCP at the time...
360 exclusive plz
That made no sense what so ever. (. ) (. ) WOW.
Are those titties?
Now that's cool ...i wonder what all his fatality/finishing moves is going to be like?
Watch the video man. It shows them at the end. Pretty cool fatalities and definitely fit Kruger and MK.
His fatalities are in the video that the link goes to.
I hope they use some of his famous quotes! *"I'm back and better than ever" *"Welcome to primetime bitch" *"This... is GOD" *"You are all my children now" *"How sweet fresh meat" *"Kung Fu this bitch" *"No Pain no gain" *"You've got their power I've got their souls, come on" *"I'll get you my pretty and your little soul too" *"You think you got what it takes i've been waiting for my game for a long time bitch" Last one is my favorite! :-)
Sadly, he probably won't have any taunts if its based of the new Freddy.
Dude, you forgot the lines from Freddy's Dead when he's playing the video games.
"you forgot my powerglove!"
New Freddy looks like a burnt cat.
LMAO he does look like a burnt puss in boots in a striped sweater. Give me an elm street stage with a stage fatality and we're good
No. No-no-no-no-no-no. This HAS to be a joke. Where's Fujin? I won't even bother downloading the compatibility pack for him. He doesn't fit in the game at all. There are so many better characters they could've added.
aww thats sick.. totally unexpected!!!!! makes me want to go out and get mortal kombat!
Krueger not Kruger and Jason's last name is spelled "Voorhees" (for whenever they add him as DLC).
They went with the newer "Voldemort" looking freddy eh?
Not sure why they're calling him Freddy Krueger. It's obviously Choi Bounge.
Wow, now that you mention it he sure does look like Choi Bounge from KOF.
gameplay reminds me of wolverine a bit but the best character they could of added would of been ash.
Agreed. I would've much preferred Ash. Still, Freddy is not a bad addition at all.
Wow! Agree! And bubbles for that thought!
That would be so awesome! Boom stick, chainsaw and that "robotic arm" he got in Army Of Darkness, that is a nice arsenal!
Man, ash would be awesome! This game could gradually turn into a McFarlane movie maniacs vs game and bring back nostalgic memories of buying the models all those years ago! If only...
