Excerpt: After hearing all the horror stories about Mortal Kombat Advance, I couldn’t resist giving it a test drive. They were right: this game is so bad that I was forced to raise the 2 that I rated Mortal Kombat Mythologies to a 3. At least that game is somewhat playable.
Excerpt: Although I’m not a big fan of fighting games in general, the Mortal Kombat franchise has always been my favourite. So when Mortal Kombat Advance (MKA) for the Game Boy Advance fell into my lap, I was looking forward to scuffling a few bloody rounds with my man Sub Zero. Unfortunately, that eagerness quickly turned to disappointment. It looks and sounds like Mortal Kombat, but the gameplay has taken a serious beating.
Excerpt: Nintendo's Game Boy Advance has been an extremely fertile breeding ground for remakes of popular games from the past. As the remakes begin to pile up, more and more companies are getting on the rerelease train, hoping to cash in on their back catalog of products. Midway has already released a collection of old arcade games for the system, and now the company has released a version of Mortal Kombat for the GBA.
Excerpt: Okay, so that subtitle is bad, but not nearly as bad as Mortal Kombat Advance for your GBA. MKA is literally a turd housed in plastic. It came straight from the bowels of Midway, and somehow ended up on store shelves. The truly horrific part is that this piece of excrement is actually selling for real money. This is a gross injustice that simply must not be tolerated. Someone, anyone, needs to do something about this.
