  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.

    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.

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. Expand

    Its good but it lacks fatalities which I gotta get used to and endings which arent impressive at all. but on the up side you get kreate a Its good but it lacks fatalities which I gotta get used to and endings which arent impressive at all. but on the up side you get kreate a fighter which is always a plus and every character in history which is another plus, take the good with the bad. Its not like Midway just gyped us big time, the just gave ussomething new. Good job. Expand

    in this mortal kombat is a lot of choice when it comes to characters (58 plus 4 unlockable and 2 slots for created fighters ), but however itin this mortal kombat is a lot of choice when it comes to characters (58 plus 4 unlockable and 2 slots for created fighters ), but however it was not what i most appreciated in this mortal kombat . the excellent konquest mode
    is very detailed and worked and holds us to the screen. A final word to the Kreate a Fighter mode that surprised me the positive unlike the boring motor kombat which was for me the deception of the game.

    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 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. 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
