Ultimate Mortal Kombat 3 is the upgrade to the (very mixed at the time of release) Mortal Kombat 3. Ultimate Mortal Kombat 3 tightens up the gameplay, adds new stages, and throws in previous and new characters (specifically Scorpion, Jade, Kitana, Reptile, Ermac, Classic Sub-Zero, Mileena and Human Smoke) to the brawl. Needless to say it was MUCH better received then Mortal Kombat 3 and is considered one of the very best entries in the entire MK series (to which I personally agree). This was honestly the game that SHOULD have been released the 1st time around. Luckily Midway was smart and cool enough to right the wrongs of the very tepid Mortal Kombat 3.
Again, if there is any version of this game to get it's the Sega Saturn version. So boot it up, pick your character, and have a rip roaring good time with one of the best MK's the the history of the franchise. Highly recommend.
With all of the greatness that is this port there are some shortcomings, leading to my one star deduction. Firstly, there doesn't appear to be a way to save your menu settings. 9 of 10 fighting games on the Saturn allow you to save your scores and menu settings, but this feature appears to be absent from this port. Its not a huge issue, but is just a minor annoyance causing you to make your selections over and over again each time you reboot the console. That aside, the main issue is the load times. They are fairly frequent, long and somewhat annoying. The worst part is when you're going to do a fatality, the game has to pause and load right in the middle of it! It really affects the flow of the fatality and I've had guests over who thought the game froze and was in error. I feel like Midway could have avoided this by allowing this game to make use of the 1MB or 4MB RAM expansion carts for the Saturn. Unfortunately, this game doesn't utilize those. Another reason Midway should have made use of the RAM expansion would be to bump up the resolution. While the graphics are quite acceptable, the resolution is pretty low and we've all seen the Saturn do better.
Even with the load times, lack of option save and sub-par resolution, this game is a solid port with all of the goodies from the arcade version. If you want to play Ultimate Mortal Kombat 3 at home, this really is the only way to go!
