Mortal Kombat (Microsoft Xbox 360, 2011)
About this product
|The definitively violent Mortal Kombat fighting game series is re-invented on high-definition consoles in its ninth full production, a plainly titled release that both moves the supernatural combat action forward and returns it to its roots. Rendered in full 3D, the hand-to-hand battles play out strictly on a 2D plane, as in the original Mortal Kombat games for 16-bit consoles, emphasizing keenly timed blocks, counter-moves, and ranged attacks. More so than in any recent Mortal Kombat game, the fighting action is designed for true hardcore players, with each character presenting a deep system of special attacks to master and relative weaknesses to overcome. Each character can also execute a full-fledged fatality move, in classic MK form.|
Leaving aside the inter-dimensional diversions of the most recent Mortal Kombat vs. DC Universe, the game's unusually involving single-player story begins after the events of Mortal Kombat: Armageddon, but then returns to the events of the first three games to revisit the series' original lore. Gaining a trans-temporal awareness, the enigmatic thunder-god Raiden is central to the plot, but gamers take the roles of several different combatants as they progress through the campaign. In all, over two-dozen characters are playable in this edition of Mortal Kombat, each uniquely modeled and individually animated. Multiplayer fighting is thoroughly supported, in both same-console and online options, with a selection of competitive and cooperative modes.

Really Fun Old School Game
It's really fun . It brings back the old characters and adds some fun new characters. Really cool. As far Mortal Kombat games I bought in the past this one was my favorite. Benn a fan of MK since N64 , so it's interesting to see the character evolve through technology through the years .

MORTAL KOMBAT HAS BEEN ONE OF THE BEST GAMES EVER BROUGHT OUT. ANY GAME LOVER WOULD HAVE THIS GAME IN THEIR COLLECTION. I LOVE THE FLAWLESS VICTORIES IN THE END OF EACH MATCH. IF ONLY MORE GORE WAS INVOLVED BUT OVERALL I LOVE IT. THIS GAME IS A LEGEND COMPARED TO OTHERS. I FEEL THIS GAME WILL ALWAYS BE RE INVENTED FOR EACH AND EVERY FUTURE GAME SYSTEM.

Quick game to learn and play
It has a few more characters to choose from compared to previous editions of the game, not too hard to learn the moves.
