  1. It's not quite perfect but it's as close as you can get on the PSP for now, and until they design a new MK release specifically for Sony's handheld, this is definitely a worthwhile purchase for beat 'em up fans who enjoy the gore and novelties that the MK series has always provided.
  2. The loading times are a bit long, but once the limbs begin to fly, it’s hard to deny this game’s gory charm.
  3. This is what fans have been waiting for. This is the definitive Mortal Kombat title for handhelds. You have more fatalities, self-fatalities (hara-kiri), stage fatalities, more characters, four deep modes of play, unlockable Krypt items, and online play.
  4. Don't be surprised if the strategic Chess Kombat and the Super Puzzle Fighter-esque Puzzle Kombat overshadow Unchained's main event. [Feb. 2007, p.83]

    Due to some system constraints, poor camera issues and control problems, a great game is literally relegated to a just decent fighter on the handheld.
  6. Based on 2004's Mortal Kombat: Deception, this version gains some extra characters but little else to make it worthwhile for fans of Midway's gory fighting-game series.
  7. Inspired from the somewhat average Mortal Kombat: Deception on PlayStation 2, this reduced version features too many omissions to be as enjoyable.

MK Unchained brings everything from the console version and more. With the addition of Goro and Shao Khan (from the Gamecube version) you also get Kitana, Frost, Jax, and Blaze. It has a extra content to unlock, a new endurance mode and all the beautiful blood and guts we've come to expect from MK. The graphics look really great on the psp barely losing anything in the transition and the controls, though limited on psp, work very well and are pretty easy to get used to. Overall i actually like this version better than the console one. Great job. Expand

Wish it had been the next one in the series, but this one is worth checking out if you like good beat-em-ups with gorey fatalities. Very sharp graphics, easy to control, tons, absolutely tons of hidden unlockables. Expand

However, there are better fighting games out there for the psp. Also, load times are atrocious. They can last quite a while. There is a lot to do in the game. However, it all gets pretty old after a while. Expand
