A Hardcore Fan's Reaction to Freddy Krueger in Mortal Kombat

Hardcore MK fan gives his thoughts on why the timing isn't right for Freddy Krueger to be added to Mortal Kombat as DLC. At least not until the dozens of other, better Mortal Kombat characters could, and should have come first.

I really was not expecting that

So disappointing. So many better MK characters. It's not even the good Freddy.

GoldPS32528d ago

I know man. It's a MK game. MK characters should come 1st. No doubt that Jason will be coming soon too.

It's by far one of the lamest choices they could make. I'm sorry Freddy fans, but Freddy sucks, and always has. He's corny as hell, never scary, and he's NOT A FIGHTER. All he does is jump from the shadows and stab people - sorry, any MK combatant could counter that bullshit and throw him in the fire pit. There's so many better choices, I simply can't imagine what made them think this was a good idea.

Isn't that kinda the point of Freddy though? He isn't supposed to be scary like Michael Myers or even Jason. He's meant to be a bit goofy or cheesy. He cracks jokes while gutting children. He makes bizarre, sometimes-silly nightmare worlds to freak out his victims before killing them.

With that being said, I agree that Netherrealms should have released more MK characters before releasing 'crack' characters.

The gameplay was embarrassing I don't know what they were thinking. Freddy isn't even a fighter. I would have rather had Tanya than him.

Armageddon was fucked up with KAKs, MK vs DC self explanatory, MK9 is gimmicky characters (Kratos, Freddy, whoever is next)

What are they thinking!?!

Fighting games always walk a thin line between keeping the series true to its roots and not becoming stale. If you release the same characters with the same play style over and over again, then i'm going to lose interest. As long as Kruger isn't some throwaway character and the devs have spent the time to balance the character, I'm fine with adding him in, but then again, im not a huge MK fan, so I don't have any attachment to the characters.

Im not even that big a fan of the MK games but it seems like a pretty bad idea to me, Maybe its to "appeal to a wider audience" again... Damn I hate that wider audience always ruining our games.

its free an people still are not satisfied!If you dont like it,simply dont play with it dont download it,but bashing something that is for free is just idiotic.

Raider692528d ago

Than if its not free just dont buy it!No one is forcing anyone to buy kruger!

BigWoopMagazine2528d ago

But I'd rather they released something better for me to buy!!!
