Excellent to hear, I have always loved MK more than any other fighting game, glad to see it going back to its roots.
And for good reason. After the disappointment that was MVC3 this game came out and showed Crapcom who's still in charge when it comes to fighting games.
Still in charge? They were never "in charge," Mortal Kombat games could never match up to the depth of play and balance that Capcom/SNK games could. It's only really this game that has demonstrated a concerted, working effort to create an actually deep combat engine, besides just being gory. I liked the older Mortal Kombats a lot, they were my favourite games for a time, but once you get into the other fighting games like KOF, SFA/SF3, Guilty Gear etc., there's just no comparison.
still no fixes to the online...am so pissed...
Kongrats to Nether Realms and Warner Bros. =D
Nice sales but nothing can beat SF4
Good to hear...
Sequel should get:
More balanced characters
Characters with more variety of moves instead of the "Scorpion-like teleport behind the opponent" move.
LOVE THIS GAME fun game to play with friends very competitive lol great game best MK ever!!
the highlight in the game for me was the storyline. It was well done. I loved it
<<<<<<SPOILE R ALERT>>>>>> If they make another one, they'll have to come up with more new characters, though. Most of the good ones died in the story lol.
It's MK. Nobody stays dead, lol.
Well, I guess you're right... They could all have siblings to take their place. It worked for sub zero, anyway! :)
well deserved. gratz
3 million units? I was expecting it to have sold by now (after seeing it high on the charts weeks for months) Either way, well deserved :D
