    Nothing more than an attempt to snatch some money. [April 2012, p.74]

    A serviceable compilation wrapped in a dodgy console conversion. [May 2012, p.87]

Aside the fact that the games included in the collection are seriously dated, there are other major issues that just cannot be ignored. Controls can't be properly configured and require player to use only arrow keys. I'm not certain about joystick input since the game just won't detect any of my pads! Needless to say that this automatically makes vs mode inaccessible. Online is unbearably laggy and that's just something I can't understand! I mean, these games are, like, million years old! How hard can it possibly be to make them work properly online? Other flaws include lack of ANY bonus content and a very little number of achievements. The game was originally planned to be in HD but sloppy Netherrealm dudes decided that they don't give a damn to strain themselves. Bearing this in mind, it doesn't surprise that the final product is the way it is - quickly scrapped piece of amateurish junk thrown in the market just to milk a few extra bucks on account of recently released MK9. This 'collection' is a slap in the face to all MK fans worldwide and I don't believe that anyone in the right mind (apart from the Netherrealm employees) would reward this trash - and that's an overestimate - with a favorable review. If you own a MAME roms of MK one through Ultimate, play those and don't even think about wasting your money on this abomination. Come to think of it, I'm not sure why I even rated this game 1... 0 seems more objective. Unforgivable crap. Full Review »

I bought the game, downloaded it from Steam, and then the problems began. The game performance is awful, considering the games are from almost two decades ago, the game run slow on a mid-gamma laptop. Second, the control can't be customized. The controller support sucks hard. If you want to play with a friend, you NEED to plug 2 controllers. You can't play with keyboard + gamepad or Keyboard for 2 players. The game strangely have lag issues even on singleplayer modes, and that lags suddenly dissapears for some seconds after hitting the Escape button. Also, the engine forces the 1280x720 resolution, you can't change it in any way. The Multiplayer have horrible lag spikes, and also NetherRealm and Warner Bros. don't give support for the PC version. $10 to the waste. I hate how this bourgeois companies don't give a crap about the PC version, just launching crappy ports from Xbox, with 0 new features for PC. I could seriously consider to download emulated versions of the game with Kaillera instead buying this piece of **** Seriously. Full Review »

The gamesThis, was by far, one of the biggest disappointments I ever experienced in a game since the release of Robocop for the NES. The games themselves I loved as a kid, and Midway got rich from the quarters I fed those machines over the years. To finally have this game on PC, I figured it would be like Mortal Kombat Trilogy for the N64, which was by the way, a really good port. Then I fire up this game and immediately notice the broken controls, poor interface, no controller mapping, no resolution display options, and a very grainy/stretched piece of garbage on my screen. $9.99 wasted. Stay far away from this, and it seems many are, judging by the lack of reviews. That is a good thing. Full Review »
