Mortal Kombat Trilogy - Platinum
- MORTAL KOMBAT TRILOGY brings the whole MORTAL KOMBAT universe to the PlayStation on one disc. Die-hard fans of the series will go krazy over all-new finishing moves and a new secret character: Chameleon. In addition to the multitude of great-looking backgrounds and digitized characters, MORTAL KOMBAT TRILOGY also includes more options, as players can do more than change the difficulty and toggle the violence mode; a new feature called "auto" combos can be used, which make the standard multi-button attacks much easier to pull off. You can also take on a friend in the Multiplayer mode and see who is the real king of kombat. Of course, no MORTAL KOMBAT game would be complete without all the fatalities and other staples of the MK franchise, and TRILOGY is no exception.

For my money, the MK series went seriously downhill when it went 3D and digital with Mortal Kombat 4 (one of the worst games ever) and continued to plummet perilously ever since with the games made available on the Playstation 2 console.
The true appeal of this game was its realism - by using digitised video footage of real martial arts experts and centering the story in reality by concentrating on the human fighters from our world, Mortal Kombat creators Ed Boon and John Tobias anchored the whole concept in the most plausible way of all - with only brave but frail earth warriors fighting on Earth's behalf, players could readily identify with the character's destinies and find their imaginations being fed just enough to make it all seem as compelling as any book, movie or even comic book.
And comic book is what MK is all about - Seriously, DC Comics - don't you know Nightwolf is basically your native American character Scalphunter??? Compare and contrast their respective warpaint! Also, Mileena is Elektra, the female villain and ex-love interest of Marvel Comics' blind crimefighting lawyer Daredevil as created by Lanky Frank Miller (OK, Milly's cozzie is purple but she's got the same weapons as Elektra so it's not totally passing off...).Read more ›
Overall a fantastic game thats well worth the price!!!
What I got was a very nice surprise in that it's a game with a good amount of depth and character variety, matchups that always have to be considered and playable bosses that are great for a laugh in Versus mode. The selection of characters is also very generous. Cloning could be called on rare occasions however characters have varying attack speeds; dial-a-kombos and fall speeds that make you consider your offensive and defensive options from one character to it's "clone".
Singleplayer tends to be tough on any difficulty without straight up exploits (which I won't give here) but still fun if quite frustrating. Make use of your time in singleplayer to learn how to adapt, how to defend, how to anti-air, how to pressure and how to convert stray hits into decent damage.
Versus is where the game really shines thanks to the various mechanics in play (run cancels, dial-a-kombos, throws, special moves etc.) and becomes very intense very quickly as long as your opponent is aware of how to play correctly and how to face certain matchups.
Overall, this is a deceptively deep and engaging (and of course extremely fun) game that I would recommend to anyone looking to revisit the roots of Mortal Kombat.
Also it has to be said actually taunting another player as Shao Kahn never gets old.
This has the biggest selection of characters out of any Mortal Kombat games (40 characters) and hundreds of special moves, combos, fatalities, brutalities, animalities and Babalities!
As well as having a huge range of new, or new looking, characters this game also features 2 origonal characters from Mortal Kombat 1 (Kano and Rayden) wich all come wit all their old fatalities and special moves, it also features 2 characters (Jax and Kung Lao) from Mortal Kombat 2, again they come with their origonal fatalities and moves!
The 2 features that are only on Mortal Kombat Trilogy are the Brutalities wich allow you to batter your opponent 'till they explode and the AGGRESSOR meter wich (when full) will make your fighter faster and more powerful!
This game is a must buy game for the MK fan and will even be good for people who have never heard of Mortal Kombat before! This game mixes classic game-play, grusome gore effects and decent graphict to make the ultimate fighting game!
So your probably woundering why i'm giving it 4 stars, this is because i don't think it is as good as the first MK, Everything about this game is better than the origonal MK but when you play the origonal you get a much better gaming experience, dont ask me why, you just do. So buy this game, but if your just into classic arcade gaming, buy MK1. (i have wrote a review for the plug'n'play version of the origonal MK, chek it out).
