  1. A little better than your average port. The Wii controls work pretty well and the game has always been a solid gaming experience. With the inclusion of the Wii-only Khameleon and the tons of replayability the game offers, fans of the series have a lot to be thankful for, but only if they haven't already played the PS2 or Xbox versions to death.

    This one doesn’t redefine the fighter genre, but it’s still a fun Wii fighter that interested players can enjoy if they’re willing to put up with some small problems here and there.

    Mortal Kombat Armageddon hasn't changed much in six months. There are a few new bonuses and executing moves is done different but the game is still very enjoyable.
  4. The problem with the game is that it doesn't have as much support to the one-on-one fighting that previous games in the series has had.
  5. The new motion-controls - a feature we cringed at when first announced - unexpectedly make the game that much more enjoyable.
  6. To me Armageddon still is an enjoyable game, but is still one that does require a lot of patience to get into the controls and the game itself.

    The millions of die-hard fans who wanted to get their Kombat on will have no doubt already picked up the superior PS2/Xbox version six months ago.
  8. 60
    The Wii-specific controls are fun for while, but quickly degenerate from thrilling to gimmicky.
  9. 60
    Your best bet for head-to-head fighting fun on Nintendo's newest platform.

    Physically throwing that spear and yanking your foe towards you is immensely satisfying – it’s given the franchise a new appeal. [July 2007, p.122]
  11. It just isn’t revolutionary in any way. Nothing about it grabbed me by the eyeballs and shook me around until my head caved in.

    It's pretty telling that it's a simple cash-in when the game is far better using last generation's controller. [Aug 2007, p.70]

    As much hype as the gesture system has generated, using the Wiimote to play a fighting game designed for a standard interface just doesn't work. [June 2007, p.80]

    You may think "What?" This is like the other Mortal Kombats... Well there you have it, but if your looking to buy a game with decent graphicsYou may think "What?" This is like the other Mortal Kombats... Well there you have it, but if your looking to buy a game with decent graphics and something new, give this a try. Playing with a friend and kicking there ass can be pretty entertaning. This somewhat flawed game still has some fun in it. Full Review »
