Product Description

Product Description

You might already be familiar with this long-running arcade and home-system 3D fighting series or perhaps you live in a cave. No matter where you live, you'll enjoy the ultra-violent action of the world's most popular fighting game in its original format. In this first installment of the game that revolutionized arena-style, hand-to-hand combat, you'll choose from eight unique characters, each with his or her own special moves and defenses. If you can defeat your opponents in two out of three rounds, you'll advance to the next stage. The blood flows freely, as each match ends with the victor attempting to pull off a finishing move that will leave the defeated party mangled, decapitated, or exploded into bits. Whether you're looking for a history lesson or just a great fighting game, this classic still takes the cake.

From the Manufacturer

The #1 arcade his is here: from Sub-Zero Rayden and your favorite Kombat Warriors to the grueling endurance and intense mirror matches! Execute bone-shattering combos and ferocious finishing moves! Defeat the half-human dragon Goro and destroy the shape-changing Shang Tsung to become the Supreme Mortal Kombat Warrior!

Mortal Kombat dominated arcades and home consoles worldwide, but did it dominate handhelds? No. No it did not. The Game Gear version was fairly good, but the Game Boy port suffered from really slow gameplay, dull music, and no sound effects. The graphics were okay, but it didn't help keep the Game Boy version from getting a fatality.

This is possibly the worst Mortal Kombat game.

The 1st realistic animated fighting ever made. With Kano, Liu Kang, Raiden, J. Cage, Scorpion, Sub-Zero, And Sonya, they're unstoppable. Mortal Kombat Is the Classics!

This product came fairly quickly, and was in excellent condition, the cartridge I revived had no damage and played well in my gameboy color. Mortal Kombat is a great if you like old-fashioned arcade type games. I feel like if you like that kind of thing, then this game would suit you well! I don't think I could have asked for any better.

For those of you that have played the original MK for Sega, know that the graphics werent that good. The graphics on MK for Game Boy arent that much better. There isnt as much blood, gore, and guts as there are in other Mortal Kombat games, so this one is a good one for parents whos kids want Mortal Kombat, but theyre concerned about all the violence. All in all, the game is a disapointment to fighting game fans, but a good buy for concerned parents with blood-hungry kids.

Wow, I expected something decent when I bought this at my local Half-Price Books store, (I was on a Mortal Kombat Craze, hell I even bought MK:Annihilation at the same place on dvd) BUT THIS IS GOD AWFUL!!!

The Presentation is terrible! You only have a Choice of 6 characters. Scorpion, Kano, Liu Kang, Raiden, Sub-Zero, Sonya. No Johnny Cage. The Game itself is just a 10 fighter tournament. About 6 fights of the same thing. then last 3 is Endurance rounds (aka tag team fighters) Then Goro fight where Goro just gropes you, then Shang Tsung fight. THE END.
Enter your name, turn off game, Rethink the past hour of your life, turn back on, name is not saved on leaderboard, OUT OF THIS HOUSE, OUT OF THIS HOUSE!

The Controls make me wish I was playing Shaq Fu! Im dead serious. Its incredibly sluggish! Every single button command has to be inputed slowly. To execute special moves, like scorpions's spear, heres how you input it:

Back, (1 sec pause), Back, (1 sec pause), B. Don't try and speed-run this game.

The music is just an abomination, take a listen:
[...]
[...]

Overall, don't waste any money on this. If you decide to buy this, pick up some pepto-bismo on your way back to the grocery store. Or just get an SNES or Arcade emulator if you want to play the real MK1.

The game boy port of Mortal Kombat was just awful! The music and graphics were decent,but the gameplay was super slow,there was absolutley NO blood OR sweat like in the SNES version,and the fatalities were just dumb.Another bad thing,for ME anyway,was there is no Johnny Cage in this version,who was one of my favorite characters from the first game.The only good MK game for game boy was MK II.Just pass this one up.It sucks.
