  1. Let "Special Forces" be the first and last MK game of the new decade/century/millennium, so we can all start our gaming memories fresh of silly concepts like 'Babality' and rot-memorization of preset combos.

    It seems to be nearly devoid of any sort of fun whatsoever.

    With subpar efforts such as this, it's painfully clear the series needs either to end or evolve.
  4. With poor graphics, controls and various plot holes, this is a horrible experience even for the most diehard Mortal Kombat fan.

    Dead on arrival, this latest Mortal Kombat could have seen better days.
  6. In a word, MK: Special Forces is ugly.

    This game needs better planning, design and execution. Better luck next time!

    This game is a disgrace to the Mortal Kombat franchise. The graphics are ugly, the models are blocky, and the textures are muddy, the plotThis game is a disgrace to the Mortal Kombat franchise. The graphics are ugly, the models are blocky, and the textures are muddy, the plot doesn't fit the canon of the games, the soundtrack is repetitive. About the intro, it's laughable, which contains the characters from this game doing some stuff that can be seen in the game. Also, this game lacks fatalities, which is something that made the series awesome. Because of this, this game barely feels like Mortal Kombat. And the camera angles suck. About the soundtrack, despite being repetitive... it's actually great, like the rest in the series! Seriously, do not buy this game. Buy a different, and a good game in this franchise than this.
