first of all let me start by saying this game is just plain amazing from the charcters to the look and feel of the game its really easy to pick up and play if your not ust to fighting games all moves can be seen and the fatalites now it does take some getting ust to when choosing a fighter you may like because some are slow and powerful like kratos and raiden pretty slow as well but if you know how to use them then its all good the story mode is what really got me i thought it was just going to be a little 10 fight beat the boss type of deal but was i surpised it goes in to detail and when you think its over bam here comes another twist not going to spoil it for you but to me its amazing all the extra game modes battle tag battle test your luck and so on make this game a great BUY so even if you have the slightest itch to pick up i would nice character selection a story mode regular arcade mode and pleanty to unlock they really hit it out of the park on this one cant wait for the next to come out

Dont get me wrong I was excited for this title and was hoping to have a good ol' nostalgic blast, but it got old pretty quickly. It may be that I'm just over Mortal Kombat and the old platform just wasnt so exciting anymore, or that the title is just having a tough time finding its niche in the present gaming world. But the game was just not that fun after a few spins....
The game is a flash back with old levels completely reanimated and enhanced. The combat is fast pace and simple, a character's entire move list can be memorized in 15 minutes. The game play is overall fun, but I just couldnt get anyone to play with me more than an hour. After a few spins it feels like the same ol' same ol' especially after a lifetime of already playing it. There are tons of minigames and challenges, but for the most part they suck and quickly become tedious. The fatalities are cool at first, but after a while you dont care to see them.
I guess if you really like the gameplay it could be worth it if you buy the game and play online.... but as a rental its kind of a quickie...
OVERALL: Its fun if you have Mortal Kombat fanatics to play it with, if not, the single player gets old fast and the challenges, mini-games and extra fluff gets annoying.
