    The Deadly Alliance for Midway was the development team who built this trash. Aside from a couple of characters and the fatalities, what does it have to do with Mortal Kombat? The fighting system is completely different, the new characters have some cheesy names (i.e. Mavado, the evil guy named after an all black watch). How about the horrible story mode, where it takes a series of The Deadly Alliance for Midway was the development team who built this trash.

How about the horrible story mode, where it takes a series of carefully planned steps to create a profile and then to sit through 30 sec load times just to dash forward and backwards through a weak tutorial. Garbage! Give me some classic MK! Expand

    Take away the only thing that sperated MK from other fighting games: speed. Now theres no combo system and its still not a defensive counter attack game. So all it is is lathargic button pressing.

    It's just too bad that for every step forward Midway takes with Alliance, it takes two steps back with sloppy gameplay, cheesy, ridiculously gory visuals, and some truly soulless character design. [Winter 2002, p.89]

    With an awesome combat system, sweet graphics, slick characters, a solid one player mode, and gore, what else could you want? [Jan 2003, p.110]
  3. The game developers have setup one of the best fighting systems this side of the original Mortal Kombat but the aspect where MK: DA truly excels greater then any fighter that I have played on the Xbox is depth.
