    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 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

    The appealing of the latest MK ( last year ) was outstanding, and it captivated my appeal for fighting games, so, Armageddon was the faulty chapter that completely made me hate the fighting genre, but is not a bad game at all, its just not satisfying as it should be.

    The best episode of PS2, more sophisticated than Mortal Kombat Trilogy and more characters. 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.

    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 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.

    This game is great without a doubt. I loved the new combo systems as they were more challenging. Graphics are quite good for a PS2 game. Many different characters which made this game very fun to play. Its a bit simplistic but surely a good game to buy and play with friends. Storyline is great as well it kept me quite interested.

    I wish I loved it as much as I wanted to. MKA was above average but below great. The character selection is probably the best part of it; it was great seeing characters like Rain, Reiko and Sektor again. Blaze becomes the new boss and he's not hard at all...I'm still deciding wheter that's good or bad. I think I remember Chameleon being spelled with a K and the character being a woman but now it's Ermac with different colors? Not giving the characters their own fatality was a BIG no-no! They also took away the cool endings and now all you get is some stupid dance from your fighter with writing over it. The opening movie led me to think they'd work as hard to make endings cool like that. Konquest got much better and the racing game is fun for a few times. Kreate-A-Fighter is a lot of fun, you can go absolutely insane and create anyone you'd like. Stages are lame and limited and the music sucks! The Premium Edition gives you UMK3 which is a fun extra and it's the difference between a 6 and 7 to me. Reiko, Mileena, Scorpion, Jade and Shang Tsung are by far the superior charcters. All the new characters suck in my opinion, Meat espcially and Sareena just looks unfinished. Kitana is by far the most improved. Shinnok, Kira, Frost, Moloch, Smoke and Kung Lao have gotten major down grades and Mokap still sucks. 'Deception' is light years better. This is not a good following to it, nor is it a good way to end the series, over the top fatalities and ridiculous endings matter to diehard fans. Collapse

  1. It may or may not be the blood-soaked ending to the franchise, but it's easily one of the most enjoyable games in the series and one of the most unapologetically fun games of the season.
  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. The immense roster is a glorious thing, but by altering the sacred Fatality, the action just isn’t up to the series’ standards or what fans expect.
