It changed the game when it release waaaaay back in '95 I believe and it still sells well today when new iterations release...The term "Get Over heeeeerrrreeeeee" still brings chills down our spines...Mortal Kombat FTW...."Toastyyyyyyy" ;
That first time I heard "Round 1 ... Fight!" when I played this game last year, I thought to myself, "Aww yeah, sh*t's about to get real."
i hate 2D fighters whos with me?? 3D is much better sc5 tekken. i miss MKA because is was 3D
That's the thing about opinions...They differ. I feel it was fun but not the best ever.
I can respect that. It's when people get too aggressive with their opinions that I get annoyed.
I can't get mad at you....but if we were playing against each other and I was asked to "finish you"...I would hold no MERCY Bro..LOLOL
Dark Sniper has been a fan of Mortal Kombat since ABACABB. MK has had its ups and downs throughout the years with UMK3 being the high point and the PS2 games being at the absolute lowest. Still, Dark Sniper is ecstatic that Mortal Kombat received a successful reboot. It took the base gameplay and expanded it to current gen standards to make for a complete fighting game. All of you internet nerds who are quick to run your mouth need to step into the fighting game arena. Dark Sniper will be more than happy to beat the tar out of you and make you call him daddy. If any of you weak, pathetic, fools think that you can dethrone Dark Sniper, he is just a PM away. Step up to the plate if you dare. $niper
THESONYPS3 brings kratos to the plate!
You gotta be kidding me.
I disagree, KOF XIII are the best fighting game period IMO.
I rented the new Mortal Kombat last year and had a blast with it. Haven't enjoyed a fighter in years but this brought me back. I actually wanted to buy it after that and I haven't bought a fighter since Tekken Tag came out.
I wouldn't call it a modern day game because the gameplay is 2D. For some reason I thought Mortal Kombat deception gameplay was more modern and people forget that game was a 3D fighter like DOA
Whaa? Modern has nothing to do with 2D vs 3D. They are each a sub-genre or sub-category of the fighting game genre. Saying that 2D fighters are not modern while 3D fighters are is like saying 2D platformers are not modern while 3D platformers are. By your logic, games like Super Mario Bros Wii and Rayman Origins are not modern while Super Mario Galaxy is. Doesn`t make any sense...
I felt like Mortal Kombat Deception was more innovative then the new Mortal Kombat! The new mortal Kombat has a old school feel to it while MK Deception gameplay felt fresher and newer. Its no secret that I like 3D fighters games a lot more but come on its 2012 and this is the way all fighting games should be in 3D. No offense to 2D fighters its just that era should be over now.
The fighting game witch i enjoyed most was dead or alive on xbox (and yeah i played prety much all fighting games, you name it)
I still want to buy the Komplete edition, but $49.99?
On sale at GameStop's for $29.99 right now.
sadly enough the multiplayer is filled with spammers and some good people. But its just ridiculous everyone picks noob, scorpion, jade etc...
The hit confirms in MK have always been kinda iffy. Sometimes it's hard to tell if you've actually hit someone. As far as it STILL being the best modern fighter..that means it's never changed after all of these years, which I highly disagree lol. MK was a game changer at the time. I remember when it first came out for Genesis and SNES, and the fact that blood was left out of the SNES version was a huge selling point to get the Genesis version. BUT...when Street Fighter 2 came out and Genesis didn't have the 6 button controller, it was a wrap.
I say it being the BEST modern fighter is debatable, but damn is it great fun. I have played it quite a bit, but I have never actually owned the game. That will change with the Vita version. =)
The best? At no point in time was it the best. It was constantly overshadowed by SF, MvC and BB. I admit, it has an entertaining story mode but once that's over you're left with a VS. engine that makes me wish I was playing a better game.
its suprise this game came up i just borroed from a friend 2 days ago, this is a really good fighting game i like it wayyy more than street fighter. online pass :(
I fired the game up yesterday because I missed it. However, the lag and constant internet connection problems still persist. Why hasn't this been fixed? It is a shame because I love playing this game online.
MK4 was first Mortal Kombat game i owned even though i have played the older ones i used to play this game all day on the N64. When i bought MK9 it was awesome but didn't have the same effect as MK4 did. Maybe it was the whole online thing, trophies and updates that ruined it for me but no matter what Mortal Kombat to me would always be #1.
I have to agree I can't wait for vita version
