Mortal Kombat Komplete Edition
2 September 2013
Summary: Hey everybody! Fighting games are back! And you know what that means, right? Semi-sequel "updates" to fighting games are also back! BlazBlue , King of Fighters , Marvel Vs. Capcom 3 , and of course Street Fighter have all seen at least one retail-packaged upgrade since their respective launches (or relaunches), which have all had varying levels of critical and commercial success.
Excerpt: Mortal Kombat Komplete Edition was originally banned in Australian due to the excessive graphic violence of this fighter. Back then, Australia didn't have an R18+ rating but now, the game has finally been released and even though it is slightly dated, it's still one impressive fighter. Developed by the makers of Injustice Gods Among Us, players of Mortal Kombat Komplete Edition can easily see where their inspiration came from.
Conclusion: "Mortal Kombat Tournament Edition" returns to its 2D roots and delivers the most balanced, violent, and fun version of the game to date. The game has its fair share of flaws, especially in the story mode, but none of them are show stopping fatalities. The game is more like the arcade fighters of yesteryear, but even better thanks to the best fighting stick ever to grace a living room. Once again, fighting is fun thanks to "Mortal Kombat.
Pros: Fast and fun, making "Mortal Kombat" 2D saved this franchise, I loved Darth Vader in "Soul Calibur 4," but playing Kratos in MK is sublime, The story mode is as fun as the old movies, "Mortal Kombat's" special moves and combos are easier to pull off than most games, If you can afford it, the "Tournament Edition" fighting stick is one of the best, Fast and fun, making "Mortal Kombat" 2D saved this franchise, I loved Darth Vader in "Soul Calibur 4," but playing Kratos i...
Cons: No skipping nor pausing cutscenes is a drag, "Mortal Kombat" simply isn't as refined as some of the Capcom fighters, "Mortal Kombat's" controls seem to work better with a fighting stick than the DualShock 3, No skipping nor pausing cutscenes is a drag, "Mortal Kombat" simply isn't as refined as some of the Capcom fighters, "Mortal Kombat's" controls seem to work better with a fighting stick than the DualShock 3
Summary: Will this kombat make your collection komplete?
Pros: The fighting action remains solid and unchanged from last year's game; new characters are certainly fun to play around with; Mortal Kombat movie and soundtrack included, as are all the modes from the first time; extra costumes as well.
Cons: Four characters and 15 skins are all you get extra, for full price; not a wise investment for those who own the original release.
Excerpt: As a gamer, nothing makes me happier than to see old franchises getting revived either in the form of remakes, updates, or all new games that are infused with their old-school heritage. This generation has, so far, been about that. Street Fighter is getting two huge releases, in the form of a remake and a new entry, as is the case for Bionic Commando, and a few others.
Summary: Gegenüber modernen Action-Adventures spielen sich die Kämpfe etwas sperrig, ganz im Stile der klassischen Prügelspiele. Weiche Übergänge von einem zum anderen Move oder die Möglichkeit einen Move abzubrechen, gibt es also nicht. Insgesamt könnten die Animationen etwas geschmeidiger sein, aber ohnehin ist die Grafik nicht wirklich herausragend. Sie stellt die Kämpfer und die Umgebung ansehnlich dar, wir vermissen aber einfach ein paar optische Highlights.
Summary: Mortal Kombat geldt absoluut als een klassieker. In de tijd van de 2d fighting games was de serie zelfs enorm progressief wat betreft gameplay. Helaas heeft de intrede van 3d graphics de serie van weleer geen goed gedaan. De afgelopen Mortal Kombat games waren zelfs slecht te noemen en deden de serie absoluut geen eer aan. Toen het bekend werd dat de nieuwe Mortal Kombat allerlei personages uit de DC strips zou bevatten werd ik ook uiterst nieuwsgierig.
