4.0 out of 5 stars Great game unless you bought it last year, 2 Mar 2012

= Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars 
This review is from: Mortal Kombat - Game of The Year Edition (PS3) (Video Game)
So after Mortal Kombat's long awaited return last year, this year sees the release of the Komplete version. The game is the same but with the addition of extra downloadable content which had to be purchased separately if you bought the game last year.

This includes four new characters (Skarlet, Rain, Kenshi, and Freddy Krueger), 15 skins and three original fatalities (for Scorpion, Sub-Zero, and Reptile).

The new characters are good, they don't just look different, they feel different and add a different gameplay element. They all have their own unique moves and fatalaties, unlike some of the older games where the new characters were clearly just based on existing characters but with a different look.

The game itself is identical to the release last year, but for those of you who want a recap here you go:

So Mortal Kombat is back on your console, meaner than ever. The story starts at the end of Mortal Kombat Armageddon which was released on the PS2, before a back in time trip to save the day. The story mode has 16 chapters with an interesting storyline in classic Mortal Kombat style, fighting your way to the top before the ultimate battle.

There are different modes to play such as Arcade Ladder mode (knockout rounds where you fight your way to the top before you get to fight Shao Kahn) which keeps the game fresh once you get stuck in Story Mode and want a break fighting someone else. There are also multiplayer modes which is always great fun, and you can either play against each other or with each other against the computer.

The gameplay is brilliant, it really is a step back in time to the classic days of 2D platform games. The characters have some great combos and you'll still be able to find your favourite character and learn all their moves.

Overall it's a great game, especially if you like the traditional Mortal Kombat game style. If you didn't buy Mortal Kombat last year then buy this version, but if you already own it then the extra content probably isn't worth it.
