Summary: What went wrong? I’m not saying it’s bad, but compared to the last two, Mortal Kombat: Armageddon is a few steps in the wrong direction. Sure it features almost every character in all of the MK games (Even Sareena from Sub-Zero Mythologies, the sub-boss from MK2, Kintaro, and Meat, who is a glitch!) This one features the traditional modes of play: Arcade, Versus, Practice and Konquest (Read my review of Mortal Kombat: Deadly Alliance to lean about these).
Summary: All the charas from the entire series (well almost), new ones, and -my fav- CREATE your own from a WIDE selection of choices. Great game, but again, story lackluster at best. Maybe I'm just hoping for more, but I've never been impressed with the cheese involved in the past MK games. This one, however would be the one Mortal Kombat game to get (at the moment) and certainly delivers. So, get it.
Summary: The game is great. I had some years without playing MK, the last one that I played was MK3 but everything is working fine. The only thing was that I had to make like 10 updates for it to work properly (Xbox 360) and the fatalities are pretty much the same for all the characters. Overall I give it a 7/10.
Summary: This is one of the best Mortal Kombat games made. The Konquest mode is vastly improved over Deadly Alliance and the cast of characters certainly brings back memories. The Kreate-a-Fighter would be much cooler if you could create more than one, but other than that, this game is great for fans of the original Mortal Kombat.
All the Kombat characters finally available to fight with!

Summary: The biggest plus for this final MK for the X-Box is that you get to choose from all the characters from the previous games. You get to also create your own character after earning some points from the mini RPG game. BUT...It's not perfect. The fatality system is totally revamped into something that lacks the zap of the early games and now each character only has one fighting style to use instead of the two style system from Deception.
Summary: There's a LOT of stuff here to like. The new additions are a create your own fighter and fatality system, a multiplayer racing system, and a career mode. While the fighting system itself is pretty much the same (I mean ... Kombat has been around since the Sega Genesis), what it loses to firmilarity it makes up in content. You have EVERY FIGHTER that's ever appeared in a MK game.
Summary: Really the only bad thing about this game is they didn't develop it for the next gen consoles. I'm sure if they had gone for the gusto this would have been something truly great for fans of the series. That aside, I still find it to be enjoyable. First and foremost, yes it has everyone in it, including some new additions. You'll also see some interesting updates of characters who had only been on the old school platforms.
