Summary: First off, I bought this for me to get into the Famous MK series and I decided to get the Mortal Kombat Arcade Kollection to play the ones that started it all. Overall, its really fun, but can be challenging at times. For instance, the boss battles are SUPER HARD, and if you want to see the guts and gore the MK series is known for it takes time to master the Fatality combo. (The game with easiest fatality combos is MK 1).
Summary: I am creating this review based on the future installments after this game. I already own Deception and Armageddon so in essence I am making a review in reverse order. This is the first of a trilogy with 3d model fighters and the only reason I am buying this game in 2014 is for collection purposes to complete the trilogy.
Great classic gameplay you would expect, but there are very few online players.

Summary: If you played the original games in the arcade, this plays exactly like what you would expect. If you are getting this to play online, you will be disappointed. Every time I have checked, there has not been a single public match hosted.
Summary: Let me be perfectly clear. I don't understand why I got this: I wasn't really into Mortal Kombat when I was smaller, and... it turns out I'm still not. It runs just fine on my computer. Despite what it says about requiring Steam for DRM, it ran just fine when the Steam client wasn't running. You do still need steam to download the game files and unlock them the first time. It runs perfectly and supports my 360 controller.
