Product Description

Manufacturer's Description

Mortal Kombat : Shaolin Monks is an Action/Adventure title driven by both intense single and multi-player action. Similar to the recently released Mortal Kombat: Deception, background interactions (i.e., acid pits, living trees, spiked ceilings, etc.), multiple new fatalities, and action-based puzzles will also play an important role in the player's quest for an outstanding victory. Mortal Kombat: Shaolin Monks will feature an impressive line-up of Mortal Kombat characters, as well, that make frequent appearances as enemies, in boss battles and during several additional in-game interactions.

4.0 out of 5 stars streets of rage material!!!! 27 Aug 2006
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
I kept my faith in the Mortal Kombat series, after being dissapointed by deadly alliance and deception (story mode). I was really impressed by the storyline and the new TWO PLAYER CO-OP MODE in this game. Its totally a game for people that want to kick-ass, and solve some nice riddles along the line as they progress through the game and unlock characters.

If you enjoyed old school games like streets of rage and battle axe, plus the good old MK series on the SNES or sega, you would love this game. it's a very good two player beat em up as well, and will keep your mates happy.

5.0 out of 5 stars You want old-skool Mortal Kombat? The buy this 13 Oct 2005
By J. Cook
I've been a fan of the Mortal Kombat series ever since that fateful day, when from a dark and festering corner of my local arcade, I heard the words... 'Finish Him!' I immediately turned around to be confronted by Sub-Zero doing a Predator impression and finishing off the hapless Johnny Cage. To a 12 year boy during the early 90's, this was gaming nirvana.
Shaolin Monks captures the mood of the first 2 Mortal Kombats perfectly. If you've played either, then you'll go weak at the knees upon seeing the Living Forest stage in glorious 3D. Or knocking enemies down to their doom in the beautiful moonlit Pit stage. This game is super flowy. Controlling Lui Kang, or Kung Lao, at the beginning is an extremely satisfying experience. Both characters handle superbly. But once you get a friend involved, the game comes into its own. You'll delight in finding ways to dispatch the scum in more gruesome and over the top ways possible using tag-team type moves.
The stages/backgrounds aren't just there to make you reminisce about the glory days of the series neither. Spikes, heavy hammers, twirly blades, spikey doors that slam shut, trees who need flesh, fire breathing statues, they can all be used to torment your unsuspecting foes. Infact, the stage hazards are needed to unlock alot of the hidden content in the game. Which there's alot of! Including the orginial arcade release of Mortal Kombat 2. You'll also pick up weapons along the way - two-handed axes, swords and daggers. Aswell as dual-wielding weapons such as Escrima Sticks and dual daggers. All are a joy to use.
With up to 10 fatalities per character, you'll delight in unlocking them all and taking care of business, as it were. All in all though, this game will most certainly appeal to fans of the series. But to others it will be way too short.

Imagine the classic megadrive game Streets of Rage brought into the new millenium and with LOTS more blood and lots more gore, and you essentially have the new Mortal Kombat game. You play as Liu Kang or Kung Lao (to start with) and you journey around earth and Outworld where u basically kick the living daylights out of anything that crosses your path until you bump into bosses like Mileena, Scorpion and Baraka. I've heard people slate the graphics on the game, saying they're not the usual Xbox standards............. how can people even begin to say it, they're amazing!
The downsides to the game are..............none! Except for perhaps you could have played as all of the characters once you unlocked them as it would have increased the replay value a hundredfold, but apart fromt hat, the game is mint!
