GET OVER HERE!,
This review is from: Mortal Kombat: Deadly Alliance (PS2) (Video Game)
The Mortal Kombat series started out in 1992 with the original MK game. That game was ground breaking, controversial, and gruesome. Then on the back of the success the first carnation of MK, came MK2. Again controversial for its violence, but this time bigger. Mortal Kombat 3 followed with refined graphics and improved game play. Its popularity was starting to wain a bit and this was highlighted by the release of MK4 on the next generation systems (such as the Sega Saturn). Die-hard fans of the game were dissapointed so stayed away. Now with the release of the fifth game in the series they have something to be proud of.
Mortal Kombat: Deadly alliance, has kept everything that made the original games so popular. The blood and gore is still there, as are the finger-punishing combos and fatalities. New features have also been thrown into the mix, with each fighter having three different styles of combat all usable during a match. This feature makes the competing all the more exciting.
This game will not only attract the fans of the old games, but also get the deserved attention of newcomers with its top quality gameplay and graphics.
One new feature of the game is that to unlock characters and new features, you must earn koins in the game by fighting or in the konquest mode which enable you to buy koffins. Most of which will contain an extra. These can range from a photo to a member of staff who worked on the game, to a new character. With almost 700 koffins to buy the game is huge and it does take a long time to get the lot, but its well worth it, and this feature will make sure that you will be playing the game for more than a couple of weeks.
An all round great beat-em-up. Well worth it.
