Very Good

Best since MK3

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.

Though i enjoyed the 3D battle systems from previous game im glad creators went with a 2D style.

A bunch of levels including old school levels such as the bridge along with old school stage fatality's.

No Stage interactions, or weapons in this one sorry if you were looking forward to that.

I liked the storyline concept a lot but i miss the free realm roaming from deception and deadly alliance.

Not many unlock able characters if i remember its only 2 or 3 but one is platform oriented.

The Krypt is pretty pathetic instead of unlocking cool costumes, levels, and other stuff its basically a poorly put together art galary.

Each character has 4 fatality's one of them being a stage fatality found on certain levels.

Cool mini games such as the old Test your might are pretty cool.

Boss battles in story mode are pretty repetitive and the creators could of put alot more into the battles besides laying the punishment on you unless you do the same thing over and over again.

Online multi-player is pretty fun all and all i give the game an 8 its just not on the level of deception and deadly alliance.

Let me start off by saying that Mortal Kombat is one of the greatest fighting games I've ever played. Before MK vs. DC Universe, I had never even heard of Mortal Kombat (okay, okay, let it all out noobs). After I played that game, I started playing older MK games like Deception and Armageddon. I was both surprised and impressed by how graphically violent the games are. I was hoping from the moment this new game was anounced that Midway would shy away from the DC concept and return to the series' origins. I got my wish; maybe too much.

This new game really surprised me. I didn't expect it to be this gory and violent. It's almost ridiculous to make a game like this that shows young kids depictions of ripping someone's head off and tearing them apart. Just a heads up, in this game it actually shows fighters cut open to the bone, with skin dangling and torn and the fighters soaked in blood. Don't get me wrong - I love playing this game, but I think they went to far with the gore and violence. This is just me though; Mk veterans are probably used to it. All in all, this game is great for MK fans, newcomers and hardcore fighting gamers alike. It is terrible for people who, unlike me, have weak stomachs, because if you do you may want to carry a barfing bag with you when you play this game.
