  1. Mortal Kombat: Armageddon is an MK fan’s wettest dream, but even those few new to the series will find it hard not to love this game.
  2. It's a blast to play and it includes a ton of extra content making it one of the most satisfying Mortal Kombats ever.
  3. While much of the game play remains faithful to previous Mortal Kombat titles, the developers how gone to painstaking measures to bring new modes and interesting features to their franchise to keep it fresh like deli meat.

    If you're a Mortal Kombat fan, this is the mother lode: a torrent of available characters(58 to start)fight and die for your pleasure; the Shaolin Monks-style Konquest mode is the best yet; and the Motor Kombat Kart racer mini-game is silly fun. [Holiday 2006, p.79]
  5. With more characters than anyone could possibly master in one lifetime and plenty of variety in the form of Motor Kombat (we’re still laughing after playing this) and the Konquest adventure mode, not to mention the scary number of unlockables to be found, it’s enough to make you start daydreaming at what they could do on the next gen consoles.
  6. Armageddon is fine. Nothing special, but not bad, and its Konquest mode is probably the perfect game for that Saturday afternoon period just before the footy kicks off, when your head still hurts from Friday.

I loved the new combo systems as they were more challenging. Graphics are quite good for a PS2 game. Many different characters which made this game very fun to play. Its a bit simplistic but surely a good game to buy and play with friends. Storyline is great as well it kept me quite interested. Expand

    in this mortal kombat is a lot of choice when it comes to characters (58 plus 4 unlockable and 2 slots for created fighters ), but however itin this mortal kombat is a lot of choice when it comes to characters (58 plus 4 unlockable and 2 slots for created fighters ), but however it was not what i most appreciated in this mortal kombat . the excellent konquest mode
    is very detailed and worked and holds us to the screen. A final word to the Kreate a Fighter mode that surprised me the positive unlike the boring motor kombat which was for me the deception of the game.

    Don't let that huge roster fool you. This game is very limited compared to MK:D. Less fighting styles. More limited konquest mode gameplay.Don't let that huge roster fool you. This game is very limited compared to MK:D. Less fighting styles. More limited konquest mode gameplay. Even some characters feels exactly the same. Fatality system is god awful. Creating your kombatant is a really cool idea, until you realise that you need koins to purchase some moves. Its just so discouraging. Expand

    I enjoyed this game, but believe me mortal kombat is and always will be the best on 2d especially mortal kombat trilogy and mortal kombat 2I enjoyed this game, but believe me mortal kombat is and always will be the best on 2d especially mortal kombat trilogy and mortal kombat 2 are the best of them all! Konquest may get boring after a while but overall it is pretty good. single player is pretty good too, but there aren't many computer fighters you can fight against which is pretty stupid in my opinion. The fact that you can create your own fatalities is fun, but if you want to know how to execute them, you have to look on the internet!!!! again that is pretty stupid!! Motor kombat isn't that bad either but you will get bored very soon if you don't race with friends. Also there is the: create your fighter option and that is very fun, because you can select your own special moves, clothes, fighting styles and weapons. The fact that every single character (except human smoke and khameleon if you don't have the wii version) is awesome! But I do agree with Oz H that the characters should have their own fatalities instead of you blindly button mashing and that the endings could have been so much better. Expand

    The 3D Mortal Kombat games, as much as they aren't traditional 3D fighters like Soul Calibur, Tekken and Dead or Alive, are still kind of funThe 3D Mortal Kombat games, as much as they aren't traditional 3D fighters like Soul Calibur, Tekken and Dead or Alive, are still kind of fun in their own right. This one has every character to date of release that has ever been in a Mortal Kombat game, and while that sounds great, the balance is horrible. The games saving grace is the wonky combo system and finding out how to get around it and reset animations or quickly switch stances to get death combos. Doing that with certain characters was the funnest part of the game, not even the game itself. Expand
