  1. The MK franchise signs off with somewhat of a whimper, albeit boosting the largest character list and few enhanced features here and there.
  2. The umpteenth Mortal Kombat game bombards you with characters and modes but does little to bring the underlying one-on-one fighting action to the next level.
  3. While I appreciate some of the new additions to this version, it's not enough to make me forget how much this game reminds me of "Deception," "Shaolin Monks" and "Deadly Alliance."
  4. The end result is a game that will satisfy neither hardcore fighting gamers nor casual players outside the core MK fanbase. This is a fan game to the core, and can only be recommended to the most devout of the MK faithful.

    There are much better fighters out there to spend your time with.

    As with the previous MK installment, Midway again augments the core fighting action with binus modes. Unfortunately, they suck. Konquest mode, a rudimentary action-RPG, and Motor Kombat, a widly unfun kart racer, both look and feel like PS1 budget titlees. [Dec. 2006, p.140]
  7. Offering gameplay no different than other mindless brawlers, it's sad evidence that this once legendary game is most definitely mortal.

I just bought it with the strategy guide and my only complaint is that the create a charicter is kind of difficult to use. The amount of charicters is impressive and I think that the reviers are full of crap, this game was made for the fans and I, being a long time MK fan am not dissapointed with this purchase.

    The choice of characters are amazing. But the lack of combos makes this game worse then the other two.

    I must say that this game makes me really mad. I love Mortal Kombat and I couldn't wait for the game to come out. It seems that they I must say that this game makes me really mad. I love Mortal Kombat and I couldn't wait for the game to come out. It seems that they rushed it. I hate the in the air fighting, and I also hate that they got rid of most of the combos. The fighting has taking an incredible downfall. The only thing I really liked was the creat-a-character mode, and they even ruined that by only allowing one. This was a bad way to end the series. Bad, Bad, Bad. Full Review »
