  1. It may or may not be the blood-soaked ending to the franchise, but it's easily one of the most enjoyable games in the series and one of the most unapologetically fun games of the season.
  2. 90
    With over sixty playable characters, kreate-a-fighter, and all the mini-games packed in you get more than your money's worth. MK fans will drool with delight seeing some of their favorite fighters from every game packed into one arena.
  3. The possibilities are virtually endless.
  4. By adding muscle and dropping fat, Mortal Kombat feels tight and toned, just in time for the end of the Xbox world. [Dec. 2006, p.74]
  5. One hell of a fighting game. So to answer the question, Mortal Kombat has definitely gone out with a bang – for now.
  6. 90
    But as good as the action is it's the replay value of Mortal Kombat: Armageddon that makes it unbelievable. There's so much to do outside the main arcade mode that you'll feel almost overwhelmed with choices. [Dec. 2006, p.115]

    This is THE best Mortal Kombat game ever! 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. GO and BUY it NOW! Full Review »

    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 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 »
