Get over here! If you were born in the 80s you grew up playing Mortal Kombat. Mortal Kombat 1-3 all made in the 90s were amazing games. Remember those days? FINALLY Mortal Kombat is back! It took 15 years but the wait was worth it. This game is sick!
Some people might complain that the environment is 2D rather than 3D. They just don't understand Mortal Kombat, most likely kids that have never played a 2D game in their short life. Mortal Kombat 9 relaunches the series and does the MK name justice! If you grew up on the original MK series you have to play this, the wait is over. Enjoy
Very fun gameplay. I've played a lot of fighters, Tekken, Soul Calibur, and Mortal Kombat. MK 9 is by far the most entertaining. Even getting beaten up is fun to watch with X-ray moves and fatalities. Unforgivingly gruesome, just the way i like it. The story was an amazing surprise, i especially liked how the cut-scenes flowed from kombat to kombat with out a load screen. Very nicely executed fighter. The button layouts make sense for the moves. And the animation flows controllably without getting caught up in random combos. Can't stop playing, killing your friends has never been so rewarding.

I have always loved mortal kombat. Ever since I was first introduced with it, my love for the game has increased overtime. When I heard of this new game coming out, I didn't belive it would be this good. The classic gore like finishing moves were stunning along with the characters appearances. It is defidently a great game to play, especially if you are playing with a friend that you keep destroying no matter what character you are. Yes, Mortal Kombat gives you the feeling of triumph and glory when you hear those nastalgic two words. I recommend this title to all who enjoy a good beat em up action game. I wonder what they will have in store in the next Mortal Kombat.
