Summary: Mortal Kombat Deadly Alliance is pretty much exactly what you'd expect from a Mortal Kombat title. There's plenty of violence, brutal fatalities, and fun characters. That said, there's really not much else. The fighting style system, which allows you to switch between three fighting styles (2 unarmed and 1 armed) does help switch things up, but most people will pick a particular style and stay with it no matter what.
Summary: As I said in the title, there is a lot of graphically gross action. However, that is not a bad thing! Games such as Virtua Fighter 4 are good for their toned-down style of fighting, but for fanatics of swords, blood, and chopping people into little pieces, this is a great game! At first, the blood was annoying until I figured out that it could be turned down, or even off. That was a relief!

Summary: This mature title is a fighting game really meant for adults only. The amount of blood spilled per fight is simply amazing. I'm not sure that a body actually HAS that much blood in it! First off, it's a great fighting game that is available on all of the major platforms. You can play single player or against a friend, and you hack, slash and impale in a variety of arenas with a variety of characters.
Summary: Mortal Kombat: DA is a very good all around fighting game. Unfortunately, it is not much like the other MK games in a couple of crucial ways. First, this MK goes mainly for combos and fighting styles (very cool, everybody has 2 fighting styles and on weapon style) that are all different and entertaining, but each character has only 2 or 3 special moves. One of the greatest things about most of the MK games was all the great special moves you could pull off.
Summary: Mortal Kombat DA was pretty good as a whole and an excellent boost from the last game (Mortal Kombat 4). The game itself is awesome. A new fighting system that gives each fighter a weapon and 2 different fighting styles. That adds a little more "personal" element to the series rather than the original format of everyone has a high kick, low kick, high punch and low punch. Now, everyone fights different.
Summary: Herein are PROS, CONS, PERSONAL PREFERENCE ISSUES (which is probably the most important part to read if you're not a die-hard fan), and a PARENTAL WARNING. ...*PROS:*... The graphics are wonderful and as intricate as I've seen on a fighting game. Just about every move is fluid and punctuated with just-the-right grunt, snap, and splash of blood.
This game is BRUTAL!! and please, read my review to help you

Summary: I give this game 4 stars because is nothing perfect, but is more good than bad. "WHY?" Because of this! Good things: . The game itself is a DVD and it contains MAAAAANY cool stufs like: An inteview of all MK games from the first one to this one, the making of MKDA, the ADEMA's music-video, galleries and merchandies from all the games and more. . SUPERB VALUE: you have to play the game many times to unlock more characters, more costumes, more stages and more stufs.
Summary: If you took away all the previous versions of MK, this would be a very good game on its own. It is one of the best fighting games for PS2 thus far and is expansive as far as characters and moves go. However, MK does have a history. I started playing the original in the arcades upon release. What I hoped an prayed for was that the PS2 version of MK would have a playable MK1 in it, to my sadness, it doesn't (maybe it exists, I have not seen any cheats allowing an unlock).

Summary: Long have I waited for a great Mortal Kombat game to hit once again. And finally the wait paid off. Not since Mortal Kombat 2 has Mortal Kombat been as much fun. But i'm sorry to say that all is not as good as it seems...I give the game 3 1/2 stars really. First off, the fighting system is completely revamped. Finally stepping into the realm of true 3d (Mortal Kombat 4 was nothing more than a 2d fighting game with 3d models), the game play is as fast and furious as ever.
