This game is awesome to put it simply. I'm usually very loyal to gamefly, but I had to own this game the day it came out.

The new x-ray damage visual is great.

The fatalities are original, and a perfect match for all you blood and gore fans.

This game has more than just the game. It has different challenges, mode, and a great storyline.

I enjoyed MK vs. DC, but it wasn't a true mortal kombat game. I love Batman, but I had to trade in MK vs. DC for the real deal.

Hope this review helps.

Enjoy.

"Mortal Kombat" has always been a standout amongst fighting games- it was fun, often funny, gory, and required the dexterity of an octopus to pull off its more amazing moves. This new version of MK has been revamped a bit. Beginners may find it a little easier to pull off the more spectacular combos, and fatalities have been reduced to four or five button presses, usually consisting of four directional buttons and a face button. Good luck trying to remember them in the heat of kombat, however. For fans, this is a definite purchase, but everyone should at least give this one a try. There's quite a bit to do, with several single player fight modes, a robust story mode (complete with good voice acting and cutscenes), a challenge mode, a training mode, and the infamous Krypt makes a return for you to spend your hard won koins in. The Krypt is larger than before, encompassing four areas with close to 300 items to unlock, from artwork to music to alternate costumes. Graphics are fairly good, and the combat works well on the 2D plane. But, alas, this MK is not without its flaws. Button presses don't always work, bosses can be cheap, and the cutscenes can't be skipped in the story mode. Some of these things can be quite frustrating (especially when trying to progress up the challenge tower), but MK has always been this way. Still, it would have been nice to have these flaws fixed instead of sticking with tradition. Thankfully, the game is more fun than frustrating, so it's definitely worth playing. As a bonus, PS3 players get an extra fighter, Kratos, the God of War himself, who fits nicely into the MK universe. If you don't let the flaws frustrate you too much, this game will give you hours and hours of bloody, good fun. Enjoy!
