Summary: I think it's rather funny to hear people proclaiming the depth of MK:DA to be something ground breaking, and yet... where's the high level competiton? Mortal Kombat has always suffered from some pretty key quirks that has always made it's franchise, and Midway itself, a less successful and admireable name. Every fighter has two stances and a weapon stance- this'll make for really deep and intresting gameplay, right?
Summary: this game is pretty boring. the combat system was a bad idea from the start. each charachter has two fighting styles and one weapon style. seems like genius, but you always find yourself wasting valuable seconds while your switching styles. one weapon and one fighting style would have been much better. gameplay is also very boring and the charachters dont look cool when theyre fighting. they look like dancing fools that been smokin somethin.
Excerpt: "When i got this game i thought it was going to blow my mind, however i was impredded with the graphics of the game and how it was created but many aspects like the going through all the characters and doing the same thing without no real game plan or motive and the collecting of the coffins. This game is brillant for 2 player action for a laugh but i would suggest only to get it if you'r a dedacated fan or have alot of time on you'r hands. Well this ...
Pros: Great graphics and smooth and better gameplay
Cons: lacks animalities,etc and is just repeating the same think
Summary: Upon first impressions, you may feel that Mortal Kombat 5 has finally been done right. People have been given moves to make them distinguishable, there's a healthy selection of moves, as well as a nice amount of characters to play as and unlock. The basic elements of this game, however, are too similar to old outings. Whilst each character has a neat amount of moves, the characters seem a bit disjointed. To change stance, you merely press one button. That's it.
