5.0 out of 5 stars Flawless 28 April 2011
By Alex
Platform for Display:Xbox 360
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
***No Spoilers Here***

First things first, I must warn you. The reward for the challenge tower sucks, and I mean it really sucks, considering how much effort it will take you to complete them all, it really isn't worth it. So bare in mind that completing it should just be for fun, not the 'great reward' that we were promised, because it isn't. Also, you don't have to complete them all to get it, if you skip them all (or the ones you can't do) it will give it to you, minus the achievement, but you will get a secret one. (I've managed 297/300, the 300th is insane. And oddly, the four before it are easier than the first challenge (or near enough)

This is MK at its best, its what all of us MK fans, and beat em'up fans have been waiting for.

They have gone back to the games roots, a 2d fgihting plain making every move effective, unlike previous titles.

There are 3 areas to look at

1) Arcade Ladder- This is the basic arcade mode, defeat 10 opponents and you win the tournament and get a video. This mode is the same as it has always been. There is one bonus which MK fans will love, and that is the difficulty settings actually vary hugely. On begginer, Shao Kahn is as harmless as a puppy, on hard... Forget about it.

2) Story mode- This is awesome, the most in depth story ever in a fighting game. The best bit? You only do proper fights, none of this run around with 2 punches and kicks rubbish. It pretty much re-tells the story from MK1-MK3 with very minor changes. It poses some hard tasks such as taking on two boss characters by your self, up to defeating Shao Kahn himself, all of which are amazing.

3) The challenge tower- this is fairly easy up to the 200th challenge mark, where it becomes insane.

I am old enough to remember the controversy caused by the first Mortal Kombat game. The trauma of seeing a badly digitised sprite was supposed to cause my generation to become violent criminals! Such hysteria seems laughable now and it's an interesting reflection of modern society that the most violent Mortal Kombat ever did not provoke the slightest peep out of the press. It's safe to say the 'moral guardians' of society well and truly lost the argument.

For those who don't know, MK1 was terrible, MK2 and 3 were brilliant and then every subsequent MK was awful. I had therefore written off a series that I once considered to be my favourite in all of videogames. Then MK9 came along...

The first thing that grabbed me was ho they absolutely nailed the 'feel' of the game (something badly missing from recent instalments.) Intuitive controls, easy to pull off combos and really satisfying sound effects all combined to create a game which feels every bit as good as the acclaimed Street Fighter 4, but was arguably more user friendly.

The visuals are patchy: outstanding in places and ropey in others. The Sindel character model is particularly rough and made me feel she should have been left out of the game. Also, I wasn't keen on the hand drawn images on the character select screen.

Where MK9 excels against other games in its genre is in its sheer range of content. I doubt there has ever been a fighting game which better catered for the single player, with a huge and challenging story mode and tons of unlockables and bonus games. You could lose your life in this. The multiplayer mode offers everything you could expect it to.

4.0 out of 5 stars MK Review - Don't buy it for Xbox360 5 Mar 2012
Platform for Display:Xbox 360
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
Game is pretty cool. Story mode is entertaining, I'd say about 10h. Finished it in 2 days. Storyline is interesting(MK-wise).
AI's a bit annoying, their method of a sure-win involves using the same move over and over again, especially with Shao Kahn.
Which leads me to my point - if you have a choice, don't buy the game for the Xbox360.
The Xbox360 controller just wasn't made for Fighting Games, and it'll wreck your analogs pretty easily. I've had my slim-controller for a couple of months now and it's always worked nicely. 3 days with MK and the left analog is constantly tilting to the right, ruinning most combos in-game. And I'm not that much of a 'rager'. But the really annoying thing is the d-pad. It's badly built for fighting games and many times you'll find your combo broken by the diagonal keys in the d-pad as you move your thumb across positions.

If you don't believe me just check the other reviews online for the Xbox360 Controller, same thing happened with Street Fighter, which prompted them to release a special controller(for hardcore gamers, but still). Also, I'm not sure this game is worth buying a special controller just for playing it(like one of those £20 madcatz ones).

Still overall it's a fun game to play with friends. But really, if you can, buy it for the PS3.

5.0 out of 5 stars Bloody awesome (literally) 25 Feb 2012
By Rob.
Platform for Display:Xbox 360
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Not too good at writing reviews so I'll just say that mortal kombat is by far the best beat'em up ever! Sounds a bit exaggerated but it's true. So much fun to be had with all the combos and x-ray style knockout moves. S
It's refreshing to see mortal kombat back to its former glory with added polish and fluidity.
