Mortal Kombat: Deadly Alliance
15 November 2005
Excerpt: Mortal Kombat! Mortal Kombat! Scorpion versus Sub Zero… Fight! Ha! Yah! Ha Ha! Whack! Hadoken! Err no, not hadoken, that’s the other game… Um anyway, FINISH HIM! Scorpion wins… Flawless Victory (oh yeah!) Crane stance, Karate Kid style I remember back to when Mortal Kombat first reared it’s ugly, almost photo-realistic head back in the early nineties, as perhaps then the only real alternative to the all conquering Street Fighter II that you had.
Excerpt: ' Mortal Kombat again?', you ask - but of course! Mortal Kombat has always been and always will be... or so the story goes. Mortal Kombat: Deadly Alliance presents the latest episode of Mortal Kombat with several familiar faces, some cool new characters, interesting plot twists and weapons. Speaking of cutting edges, the graphics in MK:DA are quite beautiful.
Excerpt: Possibly the most recognized name in videogames, Mortal Kombat has been one of the most controversial, popular, and oddly enduring franchises in videogame history. Its longevity is a surprise not only because the series' reputation was built on its content rather than its gameplay, but also because as the series ascended into unparalleled mainstream popularity with toys, movies, and a cartoon show, the games themselves descended into a dead sea of uninspired mediocrity.
Excerpt: Mortal Kombat was the game, which revolutionized video games when the series first debuted on the Sega Genesis back in 1992. Mortal Kombat was the first game to include blood in a video game and became irresistible to both console gamers as well as arcade gamers as well. It was known as the one of the best multiplayer games out for any console at the current time. These gameplay enhancements have now become a tradition in most fighting games.
Excerpt: Surprisingly, MK: DA is a fairly solid game. Coming from a fighting game fan, and one of the many people that feel the series got shallow after 2 , I can tell you that Deadly Alliance is a fresh start to an otherwise hokey franchise. No more are we subjected to Friendships, Babalities, Animalities, Brutalities, or any other form of half-witted finishing technique.
Excerpt: It seems that fighting games are seeing a major resurgence this year. Soul Calibur 2 is in the arcades, and home versions of Tekken 4 and Virtua Fighter 4 are out on the PS2. And now there's a new Mortal Kombat game! MK4 was a disappointment to most fans of the series, even though it was the best looking iteration of MK to date.
Summary: Mortal Kombat: Deadly Alliance is certainly the best game in the series for quite some time. I really loved the original games and this latest game brought back many memories. A well rounded, if not overly polished fighting game. Check it out.
