    sin duda para mi el mejor juego de lucha de la consola, tiene una jugabilidad bastante fluida ademas de tener una ayuda para los principiantes donde salen los movimientos de cada personaje. El modo puzzle no lo he jugado demasiado,pero entretiene. De las cosas "malas" que podría destacar seria que quizas para varios jugadores puede resultar difícil pero si le das un poco de dedicación tesin duda para mi el mejor juego de lucha de la consola, tiene una jugabilidad bastante fluida ademas de tener una ayuda para los principiantes donde salen los movimientos de cada personaje. El modo puzzle no lo he jugado demasiado,pero entretiene. De las cosas "malas" que podría destacar seria que quizas para varios jugadores puede resultar difícil pero si le das un poco de dedicación te adaptaras fácilmente y querrás seguir mejorando y la otra cosa mala pero mas que todo por opinion, es que no se pueda jugar con Noob Saibot :C Expand

    This is a surprising DS game. The Puzzle Kombat game is easily worth the purchase price alone. Its as good if not better than Capcom's Puzzle Fighter Turbo. Plus its got wifi multiplayer. UMK3 needs no explanation BUY THIS GAME!

    Very fun game. It is the fast paced MK we know and love. Although very simple in its presentation, as some online parts could have been transferred over like win streaks from the arcade version as well as leaderboard stats in the online mode, the game does a nice job. Online is fun and people are always there to play.

    This game is an arcade emulation of the original, therefore it is 100% perfect. For those oldschool mk gamers, this one is a must have. It's the arcade machine in your pocket!

    Okay, I gave it an eight although I really don't care for UMK but for the fact that its an arcade port fighting game with no slow down! Though, I would buy a street fighter 2 collection with online connection for the DS before anything else... DO YOU HERE ME CAPCOM?????

    Simple as the presentation is, the two titles are well developed. If all you want is a really solid, fun version of Mortal Kombat 3 that can go online, that's what you're going to get. It's good stuff all around.
  2. Mortal Kombat is an acquired taste and is looked down upon by most coin-op fighter enthusiasts because of its lack of strategy and its stiffness of control. UMK3 got rid of the stiffness, and the game truly is playable on the DS if you can get by the fact that the D-Pad is so small.
  3. Ultimate MK is a sharp fighting game that's still a lot of fun, but only against live opponents.
