Seriously, what if wrong with this console generation in that games are coming out "unfinished?"

This a rare exception where I say, who cares? Its a fighting game. Their focus should be on the characters, their balance, and online functionality. I'd gladly trade in MK9s awesome single player modes for a working online experience.

your not lying MK9s online is trash, one of the worst netcodes i've ever come across

Well, Fighting games CAN do story modes well, check out the Blazblue series. They do story really well.

Release the game fast and make it noob-friendly=$.

The whole game should have had cutscenes. Those cheap ass drawings really detracted from the quality of story mode.

While I enjoyed this game very much, it felt very lacking compared to the others. I know the developer team had a mix of new and old faces, but this felt very barebones. Not too many alternate costumes, fewer modes (no time trial or survival?!), no character specific arcade mode, concept art/3D model viewing, etc.

It seems that only the guys at NetherRealm Studios are able to get fighting games right on the first try.
