  • Ok so for those that want to see the game in action and get straight into the review, here’s the awesome video review.



    Key Game Features:

  • Mature Presentation – Fatalities make a triumphant return to their original violent form as Mortal Kombat gives its fans what they’ve been demanding. Graphic details, never before possible are presented with the most sophisticated graphics engine in MK history.
  • All-New Gameplay – By returning to its classic 2D fighting plane, mature presentation, and up to 4 player tag-team kombat; Mortal Kombat introduces an all new fighting mechanic that’s both accessible and provides the depth that fighting game players look for.
  • Deep Story Mode – Mortal Kombat offers the deepest story mode of any fighting game. Players are taken back to the original Mortal Kombat tournament where they try to alter the events of the past in an attempt to save the future.
  • Graphics & Technology – Characters, environments and fatalities have never been presented with as much gory detail as in this next generation Mortal Kombat. From internal organs to the most “realistic” blood effects, Kombat has never looked this good.
  • New Game Modes – In addition to an enhanced online feature set, Mortal Kombat introduces Co-op arcade mode and many additional modes.
  • So lets give you all a breakdown of how it scores.

    Graphics: 8

    So being an essentially 2D fighter Mortal Kombat has seen many incarnations including 3D attempts but all of them have paled in comparison to whats been done with MK 9, with every background revamped and characters being rendered in full 3D but still played in 2D the game really has come back to what fans of the series really wanted.

    Gameplay: 8

    Well it’s essentially MK 3 with all the bells and whistles, now that’s not a bad thing as Mortal Kombat always had a very solid gameplay system that worked and everybody could easily play later games tried to much to fix something that was never broken. So to go back to this great solid platform leaves the player with an awesome balance between character control and it still maintains its challenging aspects.

    Sound: 7

    Now the sound aspect of a fighting game is normally worked out on the feeling created during a battle with a foe, MK 9 leaves you doubled up in agony as you crush your opponents skull.

    The background music builds up in all the right places so you are always on the edge of your seat.

    OVERALL FUN-FACTOR: 8.5

    With tag team battles, a story mode that’s actually worth playing through without boring you to death, and everything that brings back those arcade memories MK 9 is definitely the reboot fans have been begging for and a superb introduction to the series for new comers.

    I’d love to hear what you guys thought of the new Mortal Kombat, what score would you have given it?
