After the last dreaded UMK Port on a Nintendo Handheld(Mortal Kombat Advance), it is hard for us to hold true to any MK game realeased to a Nintendo Handheld console. Especially a game of the same strucutre as this one. But we just have to break through the mold and try this one out, and I am pretty sure you will be impressed with what you experience!
From the very beginning of loading UMK you will notice the game asking you to create a profile, which is an extremely useful feature, especially if you have alot of MK fans in your house like me. After this you will be able to choose to play UMK or Puzzle Kombat. You can also edit your options by pressing the "y" button on the main menu.
WHEN CHOOSING UMK OR PUZZLE KOMBAT FROM THE MAIN MENU: You will be transferred to a very simple title screen which shows "single player" "Local Wireless" "Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection" and "UMK3 Records" From there on out you can play the arcade version of the game, go online with a local buddy, or play worldwide against people of your rank or just random players. You can also just check your current stats from a single player standpoint and a Multiplayer standpoint.
The Pros of UMK:
+Ultimate Mortal Kombat 3-If this were any other "Classic MK game" ported to the DS such as MK1 OR MK2 I probably wouldn't have bought it.Read more ›
My verdict? Well, I can certainly say it's a proper 2-D Mortal Kombat. This game doesn't suffer from the bugs(if you want to call it that) that Mortal Kombat Advance did. The speed and gameplay are almost arcade perfect. To make things even better, they threw in Puzzle Kombat (which most of you will recognize as the puzzle game included in Mortal Kombat Deception) as well as making it possible to play both games on the Nintendo Wi-Fi connection.
The bottom screen, if you're looking for any new innovation on how to play the game, is only used to show a moves list for your character(which is a pretty smart thing if you're not a MK vet) and to play Puzzle Kombat with your stylus...which is a bit of a downer, I know.
Mortal Kombat fans will love this trip down memory lane,I know I did, & Mortal Kombat Noobs will definitely get a history lesson.
When I said arcade-perfect, I MEANT it. This DS version is almost exactly as it was in the arcades! The fighting gameplay is superb, and the graphics are brilliantly digitized and pretty awesome to look at. The sounds/music are great, too, complete with realistic punching/kicking/whatever sounds and a rad soundtrack. To make things even better, you can play this game with anyone in the world via Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection to test your skills to the max!
But there was something that just didn't quite appeal to me. Is it just me, or is the game REALLY hard? Heck, I couldn't even beat the game on Novice Mode, considering Shao Kahn (the last fighter) would never give me a chance to beat up on him. I'm sure the game is actually possible to beat, but still....You'd expect the game to be pretty forgiving on lower difficulty modes. In this case, I just feel slight differences that helped me progress. Either that, or Shao Kahn is the same in every difficulty mode. At least the game isn't flat-out impossible like Mortal Kombat Advance.
Ultimate Mortal Kombat 3 certainly is a pretty great fighting game, but it sure does seem a bit small when comparing it to other DS titles on the shelf. So Midway made a great decision: Tack on Puzzle Kombat, the puzzler spin-off to Mortal Kombat!
Puzzle Kombat is a pretty good puzzle game.Read more ›
The Bad: The bad parts of UMK3 still exists, graphics are slightly blurry, Puzzle Kombat's graphics dumbed down, not much in modes
When Midway announced Mortal Kombat: Unchained for PSP Nintendo fans screamed that they wanted one as well. They got their wish with a port of Ultimate Mortal Kombat 3 and Puzzle Kombat from MK: Deception thrown in. Here you have a perfect port of both with responsive controls, and a useful bottom screen that shows finishing moves and special moves. All the characters from UMK3 are here plus some unlockables. There's not much to say other than the controls work well and I could pull off fast combos online while dishing out Fatalities and Animalities left and right.
A couple of small gripes is that the -ality position isn't listed on the bottom screen so you kind of need to experiment, and the time to pull off the fatality is like 4 seconds so you get one try. I also found the graphics slightly blurry due to the low resolution and small screen, but it's only noticeable to people who played the classics a lot. I also found the Puzzle Kombat graphics were toned down a bit even more so than on the PSP. Overall this isn't a huge package, but enough to satisfy fans and online play is the best way to go.
Being able to make the fight screen on the top or bottom is a nice feature, but the problems from UMK3 still exist like ridiculous AI, combos are hard to pull off, and forget beating Shao Kahn unless you cheat. I just wish there were some more modes that could have been thrown in or maybe a few more arcade ports, but what's here works well and feels great to play and come back to.
