    Based on how I thought this was going to turn out, I'm very impressed. The gameplay is similar to Ninja Gaiden, but not half as difficult. There's plenty of secrets to unlock and plenty of reasons to play through this one several times. Graphics and sound are great. Controls are tight. And all of your favorite MK characters are there...what more do you need?

  1. It's a game that will certainly appeal to MK fans thanks to its self-referencing details, but more than that, Shaolin Monks will appeal to action/adventure fans in general thanks to a very solid combat system that surpasses previous attempts at multi-directions 3D combat.
  2. MK fans will rate Shaolin Monks a fatality – others will find it surprisingly fun in short doses.
  3. If you're looking for a fight you came to the right place. If you're looking for something more than just a fight you've also come to the right place. Mortal Kombat: Shaolin Monks puts the mental fun back in fundamental.
