    Dead on arrival, this latest Mortal Kombat could have seen better days.
  2. In a word, MK: Special Forces is ugly.
  3. 40
    It seems to be nearly devoid of any sort of fun whatsoever.
  4. Let "Special Forces" be the first and last MK game of the new decade/century/millennium, so we can all start our gaming memories fresh of silly concepts like 'Babality' and rot-memorization of preset combos.
  5. With poor graphics, controls and various plot holes, this is a horrible experience even for the most diehard Mortal Kombat fan.

    This game needs better planning, design and execution. Better luck next time!

    With subpar efforts such as this, it's painfully clear the series needs either to end or evolve.
