Summary: Mortal Kombat- Deadly Alliance Mortal Kombat Deadly Alliance is the fifth installment in the main Mortal Kombat series. This would be the first game to appear on the PS2, X-Box, and Gamecube so they needed a bang to ensure the continued success of the series. The game is made as if it was an arcade game, but has so many extras it will blow your mind. I want to say there are over 800 extras to unlock.
Summary: I thought that this game would be like the original Mortal Combat, but i was disappointed. The graphics are good, but it is really boring on career mode, and very difficult to unlock new characters.
Summary: Warning about this game, I've come to believe that there is a programming error in this title. I work a GameStop, in VA, and when this game came out in Nov 02, I picked it up and played well into the night. However when I unlocked the character Frost "IV" and began to use her, one particular move her "Ground Ice" would lock up my xbox.
Summary: This game looked great. Three fighting styles, decent graphics, a few new characters, and a good combo system, but it's weaknesses made for an overall disapointing game. I like a game that's not afraid to show some blood, but this is just silly. Blood flies constantly, pouring down the hemophiliac characters in drops almost as big as their fists. They bleed for EVERYTHING.
Mortal Kombat - good, but could have been so much better

Summary: The Mortal Kombat series is a video game legend that should not be taken lightly. Unfortunately, the XBox version of this game is good, but it could have been so much better. And for a game legacy such as this, good just isn't enough to meet the expectations of fans. This game keeps the fighting styles of the characters alive and expands upon them by giving each character three fighting styles.
Summary: I guess I'm getting a little old and burnt out on the fighting game genre. Don't get me wrong, Deadly Alliance is a great fighting game, the best I've ever played. It has intricate interesting characters, unbelievably cool combat moves, detailed backgrounds and good quality sound. There is some long-term playability in learning combos and special moves for your favorite characters, and in unlocking hidden characters as you earn coins to go the the Krypt.
Summary: I've been playing this game since its release and while it was entertaining at first its flaws become a catalyst for frustration. Its problems are as follows: Hit detection--this happens more with sweeping low attacks which simply do not register or the times when you attack low and the computer blocks high and no damage takes place. Other times strikes which take place out of range register damage.
