I used to play Mortal Kombat 1 on the arcades back in the day, spent loads and loads of money on those machines and to see the game progress so much as it has with the new generational graphics & fatalities i must say i'm quite impressed. The developers looked at the previous Mortal Kombats and decided it would be much more traditional to have the game in a type of 2d/3d form and it is looking absolutely incredible, the story fills a few gaps and confusion upon the series which filled alot of holes for me, the arcade is challenging and sometimes extreamly impossible :P but obviously do-able the character selection has all the traditional characters such as Scorpion, Sub zero, Smoke, Reptile, Cyrax, Sektor and many more.

Lets talk about the DLC already included on the disk. No codes. On the Disk.

15 Klassic Character skins From all the previous Mortal Kombats.

3 Klassic Fatalities from previous Mortal Kombats for Scorpion, Reptile, Subzero.

DLC Characters.

Kenshi (From MK:Deadly Alliance)
Rain (From Ultimate Mortal Kombat 3)
Freddy Kruger (From Nightmare on Elmstreet)
Scarlet (New Character made her Debut In this Mortal Kombat)

I rate this game as a MUST BUY for all fans of the Series.

Quite an enjoyable game! I was well aware of the Mortal kombat series but never thought to buy the games. I got into fighters with Tekken and Soul Calibur, and this is a lot different - It's a 2D fighter whereas the previous two are 3D meaning with Mortal Kombat you have two choices, move forward or move back (No side-stepping on a 3D plain). Where you may think this will take away from the game, I found it to some-what enhance the technical side, playing mind games with your opponent by how you're positioned.

You have all the characters unlocked from the start (seems to be the norm nowadays) along with a nice array of alternative costumes that comes with this edition of the game. The DLC characters are also tip-top apart from one tiny detail which for some reason really grated on me - Christ knows why they thought it would be a great idea to give Freddy Krueger two razor gloves? He has one, goddammit! Would of been awesome for his moveset to comprise of both, punches and slashes. But hey ho!

The Fatalities are really creative but you'll find yourself working really hard to win a match against a friend where you finally earn your chance to rip his head of with a "Simple" button combination. However 75% of the time you'll instead stand there like a fruit cake and do a little Irish jig as you desperately input the directional code incorrectly. This makes the Fatality system just as hilarious in failure as it is rewarding when done succesfully.

I will say that on a whole, I didn't enjoy this game anywhere near as much as I did with Tekken 6 or Soul Calibur 2 perhaps I've just gotten used to freely moving around with more control over where I'm standing. I'm glad I bought this though, as it serves as a go-to option when I have friends over.

It can be great fun if played with the right people, enjoy!

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.

Characters wise it offers all of your favourites like Sub Zero, Scorpion and Liu Kang, and there are great introductions, like Freddy Krueger. (Yes, you read that right!)

I must say I was unimpressed by the finishing moves which were graphic but unimaginative and samey. However, they are in my mind an unimportant element of the game so I wasn't too bothered.

Overall, this collection represents outstanding value for money, being one of the most enjoyable fighting games of the last console generation and the most generous in terms of content. Roll on MK10!

This game is great fun, and doesn't have as steep a learning curve as street fighter. It is also incredibly violent (as you should expect with a Mortal Kombat game), which makes it all the more satisfying (or humiliating) when you beat your opponent.

The story mode is quite fun, and gives you some of the background to alot of the fighters in the game, but it isn't really the main reason for getting this game (for starters, you cannot perform any fatalities during it). The best way to play this game is with friends, or if you want to get good, the ladder offers you a chance to hone your skills with each individual fighter, so that you can lean how to pull off all those sick kombos. The tag mode is a nice addition too.

As with all fighting games, fighting against AI can get a little tiresome after a while, but there are plenty of fighters to keep you entertained, most of which are pretty well balanced (although I hate Jax), and the new fighters are pretty cool too, especially Rain.

All in all this game is great to serve as a stock pick up and play fighting game, and is worth having in your collection whenever you want to play something that involves tearing each people's heads off :D it serves as a great alternative for those who are like me, and find street fighter a little bit too vanilla.

NetherRealm has finally achieved the best Mortal Kombat that we have seen in years. It has all the compelling features and mechanics that make's any fighting game fanatic rejoice, but most of all it's a game that is fun to play competitively or casually with friends. And thanks to the "Komplete Edition" release, you have the spectacular opportunity to acquire an award winning game with all DLC's released to that as well as all extra characters.

It's definitely a must have and a bargain.

if there's one thing about netherrealm studio, they pack out their games with content and fan/retro content.

retro costumes, retro music, retro game modes and even fan characters ( all back from the arcade MK1-3) combine with new content make this a superb package. (all season pass content and retro costumes included)

the only thing i think hurts the game, its made as a tournament fighter (slow paced) where they should have stuck to its fast pace arcade roots.

This is my first Mortal Kombat game and i have to say i am impressed! hard not to love the over-the-top violence, especially some of the incredible fatalities. Playing through the story and i'm not sure how it compares to the other games in the series but it has a lot of depth and i'm enjoying playing as all the different characters. Definitely recommend this game if you're considering buying it but not sure.

First of all, i have to say the price for this game was excellent & came in good time. The game itself is pretty good & plays well. The Komplete Edition is a great package, with all the extra Kontent(sorry lol)included on the actual disk, & not some code you need an internet connection to activate. I particularly enjoyed the Co-Op mode,but wish it had some sort of narrative like the single player story.

I bought this game after playing the arcade kollection of the first 3 games and I was amazed with the quality of this one.
Its very gory and violent and its alot of fun playing online or playing with a friend at your house. I highly recommend this to anyone who is a fan of the series or a newcomer. It delivered on time and I hope they release another Mortal Kombat in the years to come.
