Excellent

It feels like October 8, 1992 again

This game re-captures the greatness of Mortal Kombat 1 and 2 and the story mode just adds to the overall experience. Because PSN has been down for a week I haven't been able to play online but I can only imagine that it's just as good or even better than playing the computer. I'm going to warn you that Shao Kahn is ridiculously cheap. The best way to fight him is at a distance. If you try to get up close he'll hit you with so many unblockable attacks you'll want to throw your controller at the TV. I'd give it a 9.9/10 because Shao Kahn is vastly overpowered and cheap. Plan on buying this over Marvel vs. Capcom 3 even though I haven't played the latter yet. Enjoy this one. Hopefully they can top it with the next installment.

This game has returned to it's roots. The graphics are amazing and the overall gameplay is great. The online has a little bit a lag which can get annoying! Also I am having a problem with people quitting right as I get to beat them and I don't get my match win. That sucks.

The story mode is great. I would love it if you would have choices to make in the mode though. But the overall story is great and the characters are involved. You also have a good selection of characters and Kratos rocks in this version. I love the Ladder but wish you could choose the length of the ladder like in the old ones. X-Ray mode was and is a great idea and Boon and squad did a great job of incorporating this in the game because it is vital when you land it but it's not always a giving that it will land and you have to use timing to actually do it. The combos are great and not just X,X,X or square square square for every charcter. If you want to do damage you have to learn the combos and the moves to actually be good with a chacter. This game is awesome!

Pros:
Wide selection of Charaters
Graphics
Variety of Modes and Moves for each character
Story is great and actually makes sense
X-Ray Mode is fantastic

Cons:
Online Lag

It's so rare that you find a complete fighting game with so few Cons but Mortal Kombat comes as close to it as you will find.

This game has single handedly revived the Mortal Kombat series while at the same tie expanding the game while simplifying it at the same time. There is no more T ratings it includes all the bloody attacks you have come to know and love. There are new characters like Kratos in the game. Even bloodier fatalities including stage fatalities. There are all new modes and a amazing storyline including all the characters with their own detailed chapter. All in all I give this game and eight on a five point scale .
