This game was pretty good but lacked some of the things I would of wanted in a new MK title. The arcade mode was good but could of been longer and more challenging where the story could have been a little less frustrating and alot more fun.
Pros: Storyline was a creative thought, graphics weren't bad, many fighters to choose from, able to create a fighter, and new moves
Cons: Short arcade mode, new fatality system, story mode was frustrating and boring.
All in all though, if you are a MK fan, it may be worth checking out but definitely not buying.

When I saw the videos for Mortal Kombat: Armageddon, I was very excited to play this game. I read the bad reviews here on Gamefly, but still decided to try it out for myself. I am very happy that I did! I have been able to execute the moves with a little bit of practice. I found that the moves are done best with a quick motion and release of the B button. I realized that if you hold onto the B button, that the move will usually not work correctly. However, I have messed up when trying to execute a move that uses the up/down motion by doing the half circle. It is hard for me to determine whether or not it is my fault or the video game. Nevertheless, I am very satisfied with the game (even though the AI is actually pretty tough at times!). I plan on keeping the game to continue to perfect it and the controls.

It could easily be that you all did not master the training of the Wiimote or watch the videos. Or learn the moves! This makes special moves, and fatalities so much easier. This game is amazing.
For some reason my girlfriend cannot execute the moves on the wiimote, so she uses the classic controller.
For some reason I can execute them all the time! By simply holding "B" and moving your wiimote in the direction the move is placed, you execute a special move. Say Sub-Zero for instance: His freeze ball is USUALLY Down,Right,Punch. In the wiimote controls, you will hold B, then move your wiimote down, then curve to the right. It's easy. Sometimes it will mistake my wiimote moves and do another special move, but most of the time it works. I recommend having your sensor bar positioned above your TV with the setting "Above TV" in the Wii Settings menu.
You're not getting much different than the ps2 and xbox versions, but you can tell the differences. Chameleon now has Khameleon, the girl version. The wii version does not contain UMK3, as this will be a release on the Wii's virtual console.
