Excellent

Excellent title, steep learning curve

I was nervous, I admit, when I read some of the other reviews here that people had a hard time with the Wii remote not working.

This was quickly laid to rest once I got my hands on the game. It took, all told, about an hour to really learn how to play the game, but once I figured out how everything worked and how to implement it into the actual fighting, the game became an amazing title.

The fighting mechanics take a little getting used to, between the motion controls and the mapping of punches and kicks to the D-pad, but all works in the end. Konquest mode is very in-depth and engaging, the best Konquest mode as of yet. Motor Kombat left something to be desired.

Kreate a Fighter mode was also excellent, as it provided various levels of depth in creating the character and gave the player an extra reason to play Konquest - almost all of the clothes, items, moves, etc have to be purchased with the Koins collected in Konquest mode and in Arcade mode.

A superb title. 9/10

this game has many characters to be i love the motor kombat mode where you can race in cars however though the motor kombat mode needs more race tracks and characters you can use the classic controller, the wii remote with nunchuck, and the gamecube controller. the konquest mode is a little hard when you have to get through the traps but still fun. if you are a fan of mortal kombat then i reccomend this game to you

If you are a fan of fighting games then this may be the game you have been waiting for. I personally did not get to play Mortal Kombat Armageddon when it was originally released for the xbox and the ps2. Therefore this game was totally new to me and i will not criticize it for being last gen. Now on to the review...

Mortal Kombat is a quick and dirty fighting game that i found you could jump into and have a fight with a friend with no prior knowledge of the controls. However much like ssbb you can master the games controls. The game has gotten a lot of criticism for its controls but i actually found them to be very responsive. You perform gestures for special moves which becomes a game all its own. Unfortunately when it comes time to perform a fatality the wii controls didn't seem to work at all. Considering there is no tutorial for fatalities this becomes a major disappointment. In summation RENT THIS GAME. I can almost guarantee you will get a least one day of fun out of it
