  1. Mortal Kombat: Armageddon is an MK fan’s wettest dream, but even those few new to the series will find it hard not to love this game.
  2. It's a blast to play and it includes a ton of extra content making it one of the most satisfying Mortal Kombats ever.
  3. While much of the game play remains faithful to previous Mortal Kombat titles, the developers how gone to painstaking measures to bring new modes and interesting features to their franchise to keep it fresh like deli meat.
  4. If you're a Mortal Kombat fan, this is the mother lode: a torrent of available characters(58 to start)fight and die for your pleasure; the Shaolin Monks-style Konquest mode is the best yet; and the Motor Kombat Kart racer mini-game is silly fun. [Holiday 2006, p.79]
  5. With more characters than anyone could possibly master in one lifetime and plenty of variety in the form of Motor Kombat (we’re still laughing after playing this) and the Konquest adventure mode, not to mention the scary number of unlockables to be found, it’s enough to make you start daydreaming at what they could do on the next gen consoles.
  6. Armageddon is fine. Nothing special, but not bad, and its Konquest mode is probably the perfect game for that Saturday afternoon period just before the footy kicks off, when your head still hurts from Friday.
  7. It's time for Mortal Kombat to go. [Dec. 2006, p.126]

    I gave this game a 9 because it deserves an 8.5, and I'd rather round up than down on this one. The only Mortal Kombat game with characterI gave this game a 9 because it deserves an 8.5, and I'd rather round up than down on this one. The only Mortal Kombat game with character creation, and it is actually good character creation. Otherwise, pretty standard MK title. Solid story, lots of unlockables. Very worth owning, high replay value. Expand

For my part, I think the story mode is naive, always play with the character Taven. Why not play with others. I think it deserves 70 / 100. Expand

I hope in the next one we'll get better arena's and music. Expand

There are many things in the krypt to buy an unlock but, none of them are characters.my main problem I have with this game is that 99% of all the people are already unlocked from the start. Only 4 characters are unlockable in konquest mode and are fairly easy to get. The create a fighter mode is nice to have and are plenty of things to use for your character.The lack of the extra style is ok but I miss the fatalities. Expand
