Okay,if you're already familiar with MK (Mortal Kombat) then you probably already know the story but if you're EXTREMELY NEW to the series then this is kinda like an overview of them (not all of them) so you're not really going to miss a whole lot. It's a great game, some flaws,glitches,the story-line is straight forward not too long or too short etc. but over-all I really think you should buy this game if you like the MK classics,if not then you're probably not going to enjoy this one.

Alright, I played the game when my buddy brought it up my house and I thought it was amazing. I loved Mortal Kombat 1-3 but just didn't care that much about it once it went to 3-D. It was good to see the series go back to its roots being very gruesome, having great fatalities, and the 2-D style that made fighting games so great in the first place. The people saying that they didn't want to pay to play doesn't know what there talking about and must understand that it doesn't cost anything if you BUY THE GAME NEW. Its the only way developers can keep from losing all their sells to used games so maybe learn the facts before putting this amazing, wonderful game down. Another thing is that everybody keeps saying that they didn't like the fact of having to learn a new character every chapter but most fighting games don't even have a story mode. The tag team matches were excellent and it was nice being able to actually TEAM UP with friends in a 2 on 2 match. Most games have tag matches but still only 2 people can play whereas this game its 2 friends vs 2 friends which made for a great time. The last thing i want to say is that one of my favorite things about the game is that it doesn't play like any other mk before making a great new experience. Keep it up Nether Realm and DON'T CHANGE A THING.
I am not good at fighting games at all. So I just play them for a different kind of game that I am used too. The story is great. But like all fighting games Its hard for me to do combos. But this game is alittle easier for me to hit the combos. But the game for me was really hard. Good thing I have my husband here to help with some of the fights. I recommend this game for anyone who is a fan of the series and of fighting games. Graphics are great, story is great.
