Latest Mortal Kombat game on track to be the best selling fighter of 2011.
And deservedly so. Excellent game that has created a benchmark for the Mortal Kombat series.
Aye, Mortal Kombat is back and better than ever. My friends and I are always playing it when we chill. The return to a 2D fighting field was essential!
Best Fighting game this gen Hands Down unlike the crapcom incomplete fighting games.
It's great, but even with the Capcom crap, I think SF is better. MK is pretty cheap, especially online and the x-ray moves are like specials for noobs, they also get a little tiresome after you've seen them 100 times. Really liked the story mode though, and the games packed with features.
Loving the game but wish they never added the xray crap and cheap combos.
Don't really see how X-rays are any different to ultra or super Combos in SF4, even though in MK x-rays only take 2 button presses, ultras aren't exactly complicated either. As long as you know how to block and use breakers they aren't really much of a problem. I do agree however that it can be cheap at times, particularly when it comes to certain characters special moves, like Kung Lao's spin is hard to punish etc.
If this was the 90's I'd argue why SF was better than MK (although I liked both games); however now its up in the air with how Scamcom has been lately. At this moment I vote MK; if Scamcom goes back to its 90's roots then I'd go back to full SF mode
Can people not promote their franchise without knocking the competition? That screams of insecurities. Also, I give best fighting game of this gen to BlazBlue. I love most fighting games though. This includes MK, SF, MvC, CvS, BB, GG, Bushido Blade, Evil Zone, Destrega, Ehrgeiz, and a number of others. Stop being such a fanboy and appreciate that 1. MK is NOT The deepest fighter around and 2. That you don't have to knock another franchise just to promote your own.
I'm proud of you guys! :)
wish this would come to pc so i could have a chance to play it.
buy a console, it doesn't cost like a cow ^^ :)
I have SSFAE for the 360, PS3 and PC. On the PC I can turn the max settings to the hilt and run the game at an average frame rate of 230 and there is no loading at all. That is why you purchase a PC if you are a hardcore gamer. I cant even begin to image how fast and furious MK9 would be on the PC. MK9, like SSFAE, I have for both the 360 and PS3 but would kill to get it for my PC. The best of all worlds.
@Brutallyhonest I don't think that if you have a PC and max your settings + lot's of fps'es and more means that you are 'hardcore gamer'.. I think you are more graphics and frames per second lover :) ..for me there's a term gamer only.. it's people that like to play games, not barbie or other casual stuff... no matter on what console or system they play ...that
It's a solid game, not sure if this game counts as a reboot or not, but they did an excellent job with it.
It is a reboot.
Eh. I'd consider it a sequel tbh, since it doesn't completely eliminate the previous games' stories.
nah...its a fighting game. the story is just a retelling of the first 3 games, but other than that, nothing at all is really similar between mk 9 and the other MKs. so i mean does it really count as a reboot?
had ps3 360 wii actually had 3 ps3s 4 xbox 360s just bad experience with those consoles and didn't have a lot of wii games that i actually liked, if it never comes to pc ill just buy a ps3 or 360 to play it on but rather not have to go that route again.
Why keep buying the consoles only to get rid of them? Why not just keep it as a just in case bit instead of shit-canning it just because? Isn't that costing you a fortune?
well i should have said they messed up cause of yellow death blu ray problem and red ring of death with 360 got 2 of those back cause of the warranty but with ps3s had to pay to get repaired so gave up on consolesn. my pc is working a lot better and so fare i am a lot happier with pc.
I see. My original 60 gig PS3 died so I just bought a slim instead and it's been workin fine ever since. I did get another 60 gig from a friend of mine which stays offline and I only use it to play PS2 games. I have near unlimited Memory Card space on it. XXXD
If they were Capcom they would have released Super MK already then MK arcade edition 6 months later.
Game is defintely a step up from past MKs but its still has a way to go before it becomes as tight as SF. Balancing issues with characters that can spam special moves and not be punished are rampant in the game *coughKungRaidenCyraxcough* and the online is filled with lag and dropped games. I feel the sequel to this will address all this and be a tighter game.
