Mortal Kombat combines the novelty of extreme violence with a great fighting engine. My favorite moments with Mortal Kombat were always playing against a friend (Gamespy’s Ryan Scott is a beast), but I was disgusted by how unbalanced some of the single-player challenges are.
Even still, Mortal Kombat is a great game. It’s not the most polished fighter out there, but it has a distinct flavor and it’ll be a hit at gamer get-togethers.
An 8? Fair score I guess. Been playing it for the past 2 hours its really amazing. I love the way the story mode was done.
The graphics IMO are really good. Especially when youre fighting it looks superb. Overall this is an awesome fighting game much better than MVC3. O yea and did I mention this game is fun as hell!!
but daaaamn, talk about standing in the shadow of a far superior game at the time of release.
