I wanted to provide an initial review for anyone who might be sitting on the fence about purchasing Mortal Kombat.

-Spoiler Free Edition -

(NOTE: I gave this game a 5 star review. However, it's not 100% perfect. Yet, I feel it is fun enough to justify a five star review. If you are the type of fighting game fan that plays all the Capcom games, and has a penchant for a certain type of fighting game style (ultra-well balanced etc), my review may not be applicable to you. I am a MK fan, and by no means a fighting game aficionado. However, I hope my review can still be helpful to you as well.)

Hello Again my Old Familiar Friend

If you are like me, you may have been a little disenfranchised with past several MK games. Many of which were fun games in their own right, but they just did not capture the MK essence of old. This time around I fired up the game and admittedly got a little nervous when I saw the colorful vibrant WB logo as the game loaded. Was this going to be an all too cheery, cartoony Kombat once again? But then the logo quickly changes turning dark and ominous and suddenly my hopes are renewed...
Mortal Kombat is back, for real this time. What I mean to say is that the gritty, dark and brutal game that I fell in love with as a kid in high school is back. This game has the same feel of the originals and that is a great thing.

The Kombat

This version of Mortal Kombat feels fast and agile. Gone are the clunky 3-D aspects of Mortal Kombat from renditions past. Instead, the game (so far) feels fairly well balanced (though some characters can spam projectiles in very rude/semi-annoying ways, I'm looking at you Johnny Cage) and with plenty of techniques to learn and employ.

Does the newest entry in the near 20 year old Mortal Kombat series deserve your attention? In a word, yes.

Mortal Kombat offers a deep gameplay experience that very few fighting games can claim. NetherRealm Studios has raised the bar in this entry, and wiped the series' spotty history clean again.

Mortal Kombat brings the series back to what made it popular and infamous back in the early '90s: hyperviolence and extreme gore, which will be a welcome change to those that still have a bitter taste in their mouths from the enjoyable yet sterilized Mortal Kombat Vs. DC Universe. MK cuts away the fat the franchise has built up in its last few 3D entries, such as 3D-plane movement, weapons fighting and multiple stances. While the last few Kombat games may have seemed gimmicky and notable only for their violence, Mortal Kombat steps into the realm of the great, legitimate fighters, such as Street Fighter 4. This Kombat is a lean, well-oiled machine.

The story mode in Mortal Kombat stood out as unique in my eyes, at least compared to other fighting games. This is the first fighting game I have played with a very lengthy story mode. It intertwines multiple characters and relives/reboots the history of Mortal Kombat 1, 2 , and 3. I found it to be very enjoyable, and I found myself actually interested in MK's strange yet cool roster once again. Demon warrior Scorpion's backstory is fleshed out, and he is humanized as you relive the anguish he experienced when Sub-Zero and his clan destroyed Scorpion's village, and killed his wife and son. You will find out why Jax has metal arms, why Cyrax and Sektor are cyborgs, what the hell Mileena is, and more.

I don't have much to add that hasn't been said already. I've never played a fighting game before this. I decided to get this because I've always wanted to play Mortal Kombat.

The game is awesome! I love Story Mode, Challenge Tower, the Arcade Ladders, the X-Ray moves, the fatalities, everything, I love. I love earning koins to unlock items in the Krypt. My favorite things to unlock are fatalities and alternate costumes, but I enjoy the art and music too.

Story Mode is great. I did not think a fighting game's story mode would go into so much depth, but it does. It describes all of the Mortal Kombat mythology for you. If you never played before, like me, you can catch up playing this. And if you want to unlock everything, you must play Story Mode. :)

Challenge Tower is really fun, too. The 300 challenges get harder as you go up the Tower. This is also where you unlock the levels for Test Your Might, Test your Strike, and Test your Sight.

I'm also enjoying the mini games. Test your Luck is so much fun. You never know what you are going to get.

And finally playing as the God of War himself is always a nice addition.

I stopped playing Mortal Kombat at Trilogy. Every game started becoming the same with nothing that really interested me since that point. There have been a lot of new concepts put into the games (3D, different characters, combos, even different concepts such as the DC VS MK thing) But when you get right down to it, Mortal Kombat was always meant to be a side scroller fighter and not much else.

That being said, I was very concerned that this game would be ruined with too many new features but I'll be honest, it stayed very true to the format MK should be following! I think it is a great revamp! There are few good reviews of this game and a ton of crappy ones. Some go really in depth so allow me to skim over this game really quickly.

First, things I did not like
1. Controls seem to be a little shoddy on certain characters. Certain moves are being performed and certain moves are not being performed. I think a little tweaking on the combos and such would have made some characters a lot more fun to play with.

2. No run button, I was really hoping to see this feature but instead you must use certain moves (or the infamous jump-kick) to get close to your enemy quickly.

3. I don't know how big of a problem this has been for others, but it has been taking me forever to get into any online play.

4. Certain things in the krypt are garbage. I bought the collectors edition with the art book, I don't need to see more concept art.

5. During the tag (or what seems to have taken place of the endurance matches) I don't like that a character's team mate can randomly pop in and hit you.

6. Too much delay between certain attacks.
