Fighting Games Can Learn From Mortal Kombat

The latest Mortal Kombat was released last year and the game was nothing short of amazing. Mortal Kombat had really fallen on dark times before this semi-reboot. Other fighting games such as Marvel vs. Capcom could learn from MK’s success. MK has an interesting single player game, more content, and other ideas which might reach people outside their target audience. (Industry, Mortal Kombat, PS3, Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment, Xbox 360)

I agree, mortal kombat just brought so much to the table. The online was... jittery, to put it kindly, but the game itself made me not enjoy other fighting games as much, because of how good it was.

maybe when they learn how to animate their fighters it will be better, its far too stiff.

i mean, im not exxagerating when i say this, and its fact, Youtube it if you must.

Dead or alive 1 on the ps1 has far better animations than MK9.

also it just doesnt feel that fun, nor is it in depth. Entertaining to see the fatalities tho, but youtube is great for that.

I will say though that MK comes with alot alot alot of content which is awesome. Blazblue does far better job at that though i have to say, Amazing fighting system, varied character fighting styles, no copy and pasted attacks from other characters (why does every1 in MK punch and kick the same?)

and Blazblues story is insane aswell as the game having a ton of content.

Both BB and MK are both great fighting games, with surprisingly deep story-lines.
"no copy and pasted attacks from other characters"
I understand why fighting games like MK and SF do that; it provides a good foundation, for getting to know the characters old&new(than work on advance moves), also for quick pick-up and play(being accessible)

^^ Wrong. The fighting animations are top notch. MK is not supposed to be a frame by frame fighting game such as SF/MVC.

You can't come off and say something is fact based off of your opinion and the opinion of others who have YouTube videos complaining they don't like it.

agreed... poorly written story, but agreed....

Poorly written compared to books? Yeah. Movies? Maybe. Compared to other fighting games (and action games in general)? Nope, it was great - best story mode in any fighter, by a mile. Made garbage like the BlazBlue's story mode look like the trash it is.

In fact, it was better than a lot of martial aerts movies, too.

WTF? did u just say blazblues story sucked?

u must only be entertained by blood or just didnt even beat the story in blazblue. it is the best story hands down in a fighting game, not to mention branching paths and multiple endings per character.

how the hell is BB's story bad?

MK's story line doesnt even make sense, if it did then most of the cast would be dead and not appear in sequels since everyone dies in everyones stories. how many times did lui kang die? and raiden? and goro? and johnn...yeah u get the point

mk is the best
xXxSeTTriPxXx  +   870d ago
without a doubt mk9 is the best fighter this gen.and i literally play ALL fighters (besides soul caliber, to noobish for my taste).
Kalowest  +   870d ago
He should play the Blazblue series.
It has cool modes, a very interesting story, and weird/cool/ funny ass characters.
It's one of the best fighting game series this gen.

I played BlazBlue I didnt really care for it.

i agree, mk set a good example on how effective is the story mode on fighting games as well as tossing some extra content.
TheBlackSmoke  +   870d ago
Too bad the game is dead because they forgot to bother with making online (the actual competitive aspect of the game) playable but nevermind cos I can play test your might and practice fatalitys!!

/scrubs

Make sure it has a solid online experience. When MK9 first released the online was crappy it had way to many desyncs and lots of lag, other than that it was a good game.

Never had any lag in MP. Then again, i'm not running a crappy Wal-Mart connection.
