Summary: This is probably one of my fav Mortal Kombat games of all time, along with '4' on the N64! The graphics are very good, the controls are good, the gameplay is smooth and the fun factor is big! There is loads to do and loads of characters to choose from, very good! Buy now 2nd hand for a decent price for a great title!
Summary: I picked this up for about a tenner, and that is one of the saving graces. The Krypt idea is, in my opion, a huge waste of space (and it is pointlessly large). You could collect a huge amount of coins only to unlock a useless sketch. It would be much better to earn the things you can get in the krypt in the fights. Fight well, get flawless victories etc and earn something. But know, that would have been good. The fighting styles aren't that much to write home about.
Excerpt: Mortal Kombat Deadly Alliance is not a game for little kids, it is a game for hardcore gamers, who can take the violence and the action. There is lots of blood in this game, so i warn you before you play this game. There are loads of characters, and loads to unlock, there are some very good training, and you collect money to unlock stuff, like characters, videos, and other such things like artwork and stroylines.
Excerpt: This game is a fairly good fighting game for the gamecube. I felt it was alot better than previous versions of Mortal Kombat, which I did not enjoy playing nearly so much, I felt previous games lacked depth, but on this game, there is much more you can do. The graphics are pretty good, much better than on previous versions, and the power of the gamecube means that even in the most resource demanding situations, the game does not stutter.
Summary: Many reviews I have read have all rated MKD highly. I don't understand why. I can only comment on the GC version and I'm going to compare it to Soul Calibur on Dreamcast. I think it's a fair comparison because SC sets a good benchmark for all 3D fighting games. Character graphics Not brilliant. The movements are smooth enough but the details are very grainy and far inferior to SC character rendering. 5/10 Backdrops Very very bland.
Summary: Mortal Kombat has been around for ages but this game brings it back to life with a whole new feel. Some of the old characters have gone, such as Shao-Kahn but with a host of new characters who can complain. One of the best things about this game is the ability to change between fighting styles allowing for more moves. With a mix of the new, such as Li Mei and a dash of the old favs, like Sub-Zero and Reptile, this game will keep you going for a while.
