    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]
  2. One hell of a fighting game. So to answer the question, Mortal Kombat has definitely gone out with a bang – for now.
  3. 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.
  4. Mortal Kombat Armageddon is the box-set of the Mortal Kombat series and just about every character ever digitalized for the series is available to use and of course abuse.
  5. If this is Armageddon for Mortal Kombat, it certainly is a most delightful way to kill a series--at least until it rises like a phoenix for the next generation. [Dec. 2006, p.86]
  6. Fourteen years after the first Mortal Kombat hit the arcades, the "fatality" moves are still gaming's best way of saying "In your face!" to a vanquished foe.
  7. Offering gameplay no different than other mindless brawlers, it's sad evidence that this once legendary game is most definitely mortal.

    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! Expand

    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. Collapse

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