  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. The biggest features in this game are the Kreate-A-Fighter, Kreate-A-Fatality, and Online modes. It's about time Midway included stuff like this! So yeah, go buy MK Armageddon ASAP! It's one of the major reasons why the PS2 still has plenty of life residing within its dusty innards.
  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. Mortal Kombat excels at offering plenty of great extras to compensate for its lukewarm gameplay.
  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]

    could have been better by longer konquest and ko-op and more selectability in kreat a fighter ... yeah thats eright the 101 things just aren't enough
    the fighting system IN MY EYES has held true to the original and earlier series but i want them to bump off create a fatality really not much fun unless you want to taunt a friend while ripping out his brain heart and spine i hated how blaze healed while ur fighting him but i think that is it for complaints the konquest mode though short was fun although it could have been better if you could chose to kill or let live your opponet i wish it told you more for the story as well instead of never knowing what happened even at the end over all loved it and hope you read my review

    Great game, I just got the premium edition, and any MK fan would do good to get it. Although a little more simplistic, it's still tons of fun, good game. Expand

    I enjoyed this game, but believe me mortal kombat is and always will be the best on 2d especially mortal kombat trilogy and mortal kombat 2 are the best of them all! Konquest may get boring after a while but overall it is pretty good. single player is pretty good too, but there aren't many computer fighters you can fight against which is pretty stupid in my opinion. The fact that you can create your own fatalities is fun, but if you want to know how to execute them, you have to look on the internet!!!! again that is pretty stupid!! Motor kombat isn't that bad either but you will get bored very soon if you don't race with friends. Also there is the: create your fighter option and that is very fun, because you can select your own special moves, clothes, fighting styles and weapons. The fact that every single character (except human smoke and khameleon if you don't have the wii version) is awesome! But I do agree with Oz H that the characters should have their own fatalities instead of you blindly button mashing and that the endings could have been so much better. Expand

    MKA is the best MK game ever. Why? Because it includes over 60 playable characters, I also like the kreate-a-fatality, although some of the comments ive read that the kreat-a-fatality suks. ED BOON should had included the characters own signiture fatality. What i mean is after doing those mini fatalities to your opponent the finishing move should be a signiture fatality, so that way the fatalities would be differrent. The KONQUEST mode was to short, ED BOON could had made it longer, and i was also expecting to face onaga, shao kahn, shang tsung and quan chi, since it is the last MK game in the PS2 and X-BOX. I forgot to mention about the create-a fighter mode, ED boon should definitely put this on the next MK game, because for me this is one of the best features in MKA. ED BOON should also include the ko-op mode in the next MK game. i was surprised that there wasnt a ko-op mode in MKA. but hey MKA is still one of the best game ive played. MKA kicks ass, YEAH!!!!!!!

    The konquest mode is disappointing since it only takes a few hours (3-4 hours). There are many things in the krypt to buy an unlock but, none of them are 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
