Uh oh. Another round of Mortal Kombat! Mortal Kombat is back again, and it’s back with a vengeance. I haven’t touch a MK game since Mortal Kombat Gold for Sega Dreamcast. Yeah, the fossil years. So, I missed out on the other MK games. But this one, I’m thinking of giving it a look or two. Let me start off by saying that this game looks hot. The way they did the trailer is perfect for the game. I can’t wait to play the character’s again. My favorite of ALL time is SubZero! That dude rocks! Ok, enough of my ranting, let’s get to the main picture, shall we?
You all will see your favorite character’s in the trailer from the star. You have you Scorpion, Subzero e.t.c. And you will all see them in action. What I first want to talk about, is the graphics. The graphics don’t look all that hot to me. Then again, it is just a trailer but still. Still looks the same. But, thankfully, it’s nothing wrong with that. So, to all of my old MK fans, this probably won’t be a problem for you. And you already know my stands. Gameplay and Story before Graphics.
The meat to me, is the gameplay. They are exercising some new stuff. I guess, once you/opponent use a special move, they will show the other with some type of fracture. As you see on the video. I saw SubZero dunking Scorpion in fire and the lava melted Scorp’s head off. Nicely done. This brings a nice touch to the series in my opinion. Nothing lame about it. It kind of reminded me of Blitz The League game(Although, that is terrible!). There are also some neat features. From what I seen, there’s some casino action going on; There’s a game that will test your memory(And from the looks of it, if you lose, you lose your head. Ouch). You will def have other things to do besides beating each other to a bloody pulp(Which is always fun to do 😉 ).
I gotta say though. I can’t tell form heads or tails if the story will be good. I don’t know, I will give it time. That’s a make or break for me. But, all in all, I think Mortal Kombat game will be a good one. Not a must buy if you are a casual fan of games, but if you are a “Hardcore” Mortal Kombat game this is a must buy for you!
