FYC Review – Mortal Kombat

Feed Your Console says:

When Mortal Kombat hit arcades back in 92, my friends and I were in awe. Never before had we seen a game display so much blood and over the top violence with no appology. It also featured a never seen before in a fighting game called fatalities. Insanely violent and hilarious finishing moves – Eat your heart out Street Fighter. We were instantly hooked and that game ate up our quarters but as the years droned on, the franchise lost much of its lustre despite the ever increasing cast members. There just seemed to be too much focus on fatalities, babalities, arena specific finishers instead of keeping the game fresh and interesting. Despite a few attempts at regenerating interest in the series, the game was old and tired.

No name sites always putting up first reviews breaking embargo.

It's Tuesday in some parts of the world, so technically they haven't broken it.

Well, this site gave it only 1 cons, which really isn't a con, where it says "Overwhelming number of moves to memorize for casual gamers (Hardcore fans will love it)"

9/10 if it only gave it one con. Otherwise, I had a blast with the demo, and convinced MK is back to it's roots once again!

"Overwhelming number of moves to memorize for casual gamers"

I disagree. I'm not even a fighting game fan, but the MK demo converted me. I found the moves to be very easy to remember and within an hour I was pulling off insane combos. In MK9, its pretty easy for a casual player to become really good. It just requires a little practice. The learning curve is much more forgiving than Super Street Fighter 4.

Honestly I would normally choose Portal over Mortal Kombat games, I honestly think this one is one of the best fighters i've ever played. I always thought it would be great, the demo gets played every day now, i'm itching for more characters and the challenge tower. I am skipping every other game this month and next month for this game, this is what I cose out of the excellent lineup these months.

My favorite is always going to be Ultimate Mortal Kombat 3. I know some people didn't like the addition of the run button. But, man that game is burned into my memory from childhood, lol.

Relientk77162d ago

That's the one I played the most as a kid. Fun times gaming on my Sega Genesis, the memories

Deception, MK2, MK9, MKX ..rest.

Kakashi Hatake161d ago

MK2 will always be the best in the series. Been playing a lot of MK1 lately though. Definitely enjoying it more than any other NRS era MK game.

1 and 2 were cultural phenomenon's.

I will always have a special place in my memory for MK 1 and 2. You had to be there during that era at the arcades. Martial arts tournament fighting movies were still popular, and MK 1 was exciting. Real life motion captured characters done well (unlike Pit Fighter). A cast of characters we all liked like Bruce Lee(Lui Kang), Van Damme(Johnny Cage), the Lightning god(Raiden) from Big Trouble in Little China, and Ninjas, gotta have Ninjas. Goro was menacing as hell. The MK arcade had some of the best speakers similar to Killer Instinct as you could hear the loud crisp and bassy sound that was distinctly different than other arcades. MK 2 improved greatly on the controls and fighting mechanics
