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.
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).
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.
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.
