Yes I agree the Scorpion and Sub Zero Intro's were awesome... I mean playing as 2 of the coolest characters then seeing them come in like that was awesome... I had a chill run up my spine when I saw that Part.. I just hope that they make them a little more Kick Asss you know what I mean.. None of this dying easily like the first one....Ill be happy.
