Mortal Kombat Review
I can never understand why people dislike the last generation's trilogy so bad. I've LOVED Mortal Kombat right from the very beginning but I can honestly say that my favourite MK title to date is Mortal Kombat: Deception. I just loved every single thing about that game; the 3D environments and fighting, the Krypt, Konquest... it was all a blast! Looking forward to the new MK, though! It looks amazing!
i hear ya man. the last trilogy was a blast! Deception was the best 3D MK date (this new one is the best 2D). I really enjoyed konquest too
anyways, you should definitely pick this one up. worth every penny! 🙂
The voice acting is meant to be iffy. It's one of the key features that makes MK an MK game.
Sony: "The Black Dragon died with Kano; you're the last one, Jarek."
Jarek: NNEVUUURRR! *Falls* "I'M-SO-GGAAAYYYYYY..."
MMHMMM HM MHM HM MH MHM HM HM....
I'm no MK fan, but Baraka from MK2 was my favorite, as well. His sleek animations, speedy blades, vicious fatalities and hellish appearance made him my favorite. I wish they kept his form, because in later MK's (which I didn't play), they bulked him up, and slowed him down.
Lol. I know, right? Freakin' trannies from hell. At least they were endowed with hips. I remember earlier female characters, with the exception of Sonia, looked like they were made from male figures.
Man I don't know whats got into you. I used to see eye to eye with you on a lot of subjects. Now most the things you say, really make me wonder if _________ stole your acct. No really though, I understand people have preferences but this surely is am excellent reboot for the series. The review here that Ben gave is a good example of why it's such a great reboot.
What does Gameranking and Metacritic really have to do with your score though? Those same sources are showing Shift 2 at 81%. Didn't stop you from telling us the game was a turd.
A fighter like MK needs to be slick and responsive because that's all it has besides some flashy graphics. When you tell me a fighter, a FIGHTER, has a "slight lack of responsiveness" with "split-second delays" and "infuriating" balancing issues, sorry, that doesn't scream 8.5 for a simple fighter. If a fighting game fails in the controls, it just plain fails. And I believe that should be reflected in a critics score.
