This review is from: Mortal Kombat (PS3) (Video Game)
Mortal Kombat is a beautifully presented game. While easy for beginners to get into, there's plenty of scope for improving skills and developing as a player. There are a variety of different game settings and the story mode is very well constructed. The AI characters are not repetitive with their choice of moves, which makes the game a good deal less frustrating to play than Street Fighter IV. Nonetheless, the one on two tag matches feel slightly unbalanced. Mortal Kombat shares a number of features with Street Fighter IV: the recovery technique; the super moves; and even Mortal Kombat's own equivalent of the Ultra Combos.
The game doesn't push the envelope of fighting games, but is a solid and very well produced title.
