    MKA is not only a satisfying fighter, but possibly the best example of how classic-schemed fighting games can still play perfectly well, if not easier, on Wii. Although the games exclusion of an online mode is dissappointing, the "Wii exlusive kharacter" being hardly anything to write home about, and the overall fact that MKA is about 6 months late to the party, doesn't really give MKA is not only a satisfying fighter, but possibly the best example of how classic-schemed fighting games can still play perfectly well, if not easier, on Wii. Although the games exclusion of an online mode is dissappointing, the "Wii exlusive kharacter" being hardly anything to write home about, and the overall fact that MKA is about 6 months late to the party, doesn't really give veterans of the previous versions much reason to revisit the title. The reusing of character models from Deadly Alliance to the T is also an eyesoar when paired against the newer models, like Daegon. However, you'd be hard pressed to find a fighter with more selection, replay value, or customizablity on any other next-gen platform. So if you're a fan of fighters, Mortal Kombat, or simply haven't had the chance to check the game out already, theres very little reason to be dissapointed with the purchase. Collapse

    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 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.

  1. All of the basic attacks have been moved to the Wii remote's d-pad, which is awkward enough by itself. The bigger change is that the special moves are now associated with controller movements. [June 2007, p.113]
  2. Get two people together and it's damn good fun! [June 2007, p.90]
  3. The Wii handles violent OTT theatrics like no other console, but a fresh game would have been much appreciated. [July 2007, p.48]
