Mortal Kombat (PS3)
Advantages: The mortal kombat you know and love
Disadvantages: Net code seems poor.
Back in the day, you where Mortal Kombat guy, or a Street Fighter 2 guy. Mortal Kombat was rough and ready, blood gore and sweat it brought out the carnal instincts in us - and appealed to the less intelligent less discerning player.
I was a Mortal Kombat guy back then.
I'm a Mortal Kombat guy now.
Oh yes, it's back, and back with style - this has to be the most fully featured fighting game to come out in ten years. I was partially afraid of cracking open the game case and booting this up, I didn't want my childhood memories to be wrecked by a poor cash in decades later.
They weren't, this is a fantastic game - worth of the name, and surprisingly one that pushes the boundary of what a fighting game should be, gone are the stifled "arcade mode" which was just a boring way to practice your skills before you went onto a slightly laggy multiplayer ( I'm looking at you SF4). The single player mode in Mortal Kombat is actually a 12 hour campaign mode, taking you through a faintly ridiculous but entertaining story where you play as most of the characters in your fight against the menace of Shao Kahn!
Also making a return is the challenge mode, 300 challenges each and spins on the core fighting mechanic - fight without arm's, fight upside down and many many more. Yeah, it's definetly goofy, but it's a lot of fun and it gives you a lot of practice before you go into the multiplayer suite.
Speaking of multiplayer.
It's dissapointing, the core of a really good game is there, but the somewhat poor netcode takes away from the fun of it - and truth be told I never really got into the multiplayer.
Still though, the game is great and you should definetly pick it up - it's only around £20 on amazon, and definetly definetly get a new version - as this is an online pass game.
Summary: A great game, pick it up now.
