im not the biggest fan of mortal kombat but.......

i was suprised when i heard the announcement of another mortal kombat game. i had played the first and was not impressed at all. this mortal kombat im my opinion was not that much better. don't get me wrong it was a good game, but im just not the biggest mortal kombat fan. but since this was said to be soooo much better than the first, i had to give it a go.

the story mode was not really that impressive to me, it was too repetitive in my opinion and i know that that is what fighting genres are based on is just non-stop fighting, but for some reason this is why i didn't like the first game too well.

the other thing i didn't like was that you need a "Kombat Pass" to play online. last time i checked on it, it was 800 microsoft points ($10.00) so if you wanted to play online when you rented it, unless you paid 10 dollars for the pass, you can't which in my opinion is a total waste of money for just access to the online feature of a game.

overall i give this game a 6 out of 10

like i said before, its a good game, its just too repetitive for me.

The game is great it has almost all of the best characters in the franchise (They have Striker...not that good ) well the only thing i didnt like about the game is one Striker and two that you cant skip the cut scenes in story mode.

A Mortal Kombat worthy of the title. The game is the best MK title since the MK 3. The fatalities are as brutal as ever, the babalities are humorous, and the story is actually decent. Only komplaints (sorry, had too) is it doesn't play as good on the Xbox as it does on the PS3. The 360's d-pad can lead to frustration as you try to do a special attack but instead do a regular punch or crouching attack. My other complaint is they killed off a few too many characters in the story. Either there is going to be some stupid cheesy thing where all the good guys get revived or something like that for MK 10.
