"The latest game in the Mortal Kombat series is a return to form for the franchise. This is 2D fighting at its best – fast, furious and fun. It’s obvious from the outset that Mortal Kombat was created with a level of expertise, dedication and care that few games these days possess. It’s telling that Ed Boon – the director and co-creator of the original Mortal Kombat game released in 1992 – remained at the helm for this project. 19 years later the series has finally come of age, and a true classic is in our midst."
