Mortal Kombat: Deception PS2 Review
31 May 2010
Excerpt: Mortal Kombat: Deadly Alliance was almost everything a next generation update of MK should be. It retained the amusing dark and often macabre humour that the series has so long been renowned for and the gameplay itself although losing much of its simplicity was still satisfyingly easy to get into.
Excerpt: One word: Unbelievable! The graphics in Midway’s newest installment in the series, Mortal Kombat: Deception , are outstanding. Character models look very clean, and help bring to 3D the digitized humans they were based from. But where MKD ’s visuals really shine are in the environments. The rich detail, destructible areas, and death traps truly help bring the pain home. When it comes to audio, MKD presents itself with great clarity.
Summary: After the huge leaps Mortal Kombat: Deadly Alliance made from 2D to 3D it's commendable that the development team has been able to enhance the franchise even further with Deception which is without doubt the biggest and best Mortal Kombat to date and better than many of it's Beat-em-up competition.
Conclusion: The kill zones are a sight to behold – they are specific areas on the fighting area which you can throw your opponent into for an immediate round victory (impale them on a spike, into a grinder, into piranhas, a giant press… you get the idea). For those fixated on the fatalities, each character comes with 2 of them and a Hara-Kiri which is a suicide move which prevents the opponent from using a fatality. (You can’t kill me if I kill me HAHAHAHA!
Excerpt: I seriously don't know what happened. Five years ago, I was laughing till it hurt at all the missteps and pratfalls Midway was making as they headed on a one-way course toward the demise of the company. I equated them with developer/publishers like 3DO and Acclaim, who were floundering at the time and are now six feet under.
Summary: Mortal Kombat: Deception is a superb title worthy of inclusion in any gamers collections. It's bloody as hell, and quite brutal - pretty much what we all want to see. The extra modes and online gameplay round out an engrossing package. Certainly recommended.
Excerpt: Czego oczekujecie od dobrej bijatyki? Jeśli ogromnej głębi, możliwości strategicznego planowania, wielkiego przekroju stylów walki oraz realizmu, mogę Wam polecić serię Virtua Fighter . Po drodze Tekken oraz Soul Calibur , które – mimo iż równie dobre, czy nawet lepsze – nieco bardziej odstają od podanych założeń. A jeśli od bijatyki ktoś oczekuje szybkiej, efektownej młócki, hektolitrów krwi i rozrywanych ciał?
