NoobFeed Editor Jay Claassen writes - Mortal Kombat 1 has seen vast improvements and brings a lot of new features to the table, even though some aren’t entirely necessary. The Story Mode alone brings a whole new beginning for Mortal Kombat as a whole and opens up endless new possibilities for the franchise to grow and expand upon. While there are a few minor drawbacks, like the complexity of Kameos and the strange turn brought in with Invasions, the biggest flop is how online play is handled.
From Xfire: "Historically, September has been the gaming industry's version of a red carpet event. As we inch closer to the holiday season, AAA titles start to pop up like mushrooms after a rainstorm. This year was no exception, with a slew of games that had us reaching for our controllers (and occasionally, our wallets)."
"Mortal Kombat 1 goes back to basics, focusing on inputs, combos and the joy of punching someone in half on the internet."
