After centuries of Mortal Kombat, Emperor Shao Kahn has finally defeated Raiden and his allies. Faced with extinction, Raiden has one last chance to save Earthrealm. To undo the Emperor’s victory, he must strike Shao Kahn where he is vulnerable… the Past.
Mature Presentation – Fatalities make a triumphant return to their
original violent form as Mortal Kombat gives its fans what they’ve been
demanding. Graphic details, never before possible are presented with the most
sophisticated graphics engine in MK history.
All New Game Play – By returning to its classic 2D fighting plane, mature presentation, and up to 4 player tag-team kombat; Mortal Kombat introduces an all new fighting mechanic that’s both accessible and provides the depth that fighting game players look for.
Deep Story Mode – Mortal Kombat offers the deepest story mode of any fighting game. Players are taken back to the original Mortal Kombat tournament where they try to alter the events of the past in an attempt to save the future.
Graphics & technology – Characters, environments and fatalities have never been presented with as much gory detail as in this next generation Mortal Kombat. From internal organs to the most “realistic” blood effects, Kombat has never looked this good.
New Game Modes – In addition to an enhanced online feature set, Mortal Kombat introduces Co-op arcade mode and many additional modes to be announced in the upcoming months.
Fighting games are like sports games when it comes to aging - they don't to it well. It's easy to argue that SF IV is the best in the franchise. I strongly believe the new MK is the best yet. And, since I prefer it over SFIV - I now pronounce it the best fighting game EVAH! :)
Seriously, this game has it all. Polished gameplay, sick graphics and fatalities. Good multiplayer and a ton of features.
