Review – Mortal Kombat: Deception
12 January 2006
Conclusion: Ultimately, I believe that Mortal Kombat Deception is a strong addition to the MK family line of games. I was stoked to get it for Christmas (a year late) but am really having a blast playing through it. I urge anyone who hasn’t played this game or any of the MK series to pick this up and try it.
Excerpt: MORTAL KOMBAT! For 12 years, these two words have summed up a controversial franchise that changed the gaming landscape. Fighting games had existed before MK hit arcades, but the concept that Midway delivered with the Mortal Kombat series redefined the entire genre (and indeed gaming) for the...
Excerpt: Shang Tsung and Quan Chi then turned on each other, with Quan Chi being victorious. The victory was short lived, though, as the Dragon King, Onaga, former ruler of Outworld then returned. A new alliance was formed between the Deadly Alliance and Raiden to try and stop Onaga, but it was futile.
Excerpt: After Mortal Kombat 2, the Midway beat-em-up seemed to plunge itself into a downward spiral that it didn't manage to climb out of until the release of Deadly Alliance gave new life to the series in 2002.

Excerpt: For 12 years, these two words have summed up a controversial franchise that changed the gaming landscape. Fighting games had existed before MK hit arcades, but the concept that Midway delivered with the Mortal Kombat series redefined the entire genre (and indeed gaming) for the better.
Summary: You’re never quite sure what you’re going to get when it comes to a Midway fighting game. Is it going to be a bona fide classic, like Mortal Kombat II; or a full-on disaster, like War Gods, Primal Rage, or Mortal Kombat Advance?
Excerpt: Okay, it isn't really, but it is the greatest fighting game released this year. Midway did a good job of making a solid game that's going to appeal to most gamers out there. No, it isn't as well rounded as Soul Calibur II or as deep as Virtua Fighter 4: Evolution - not by a long shot.
Conclusion: In my eyes the Mortal Kombat series has taken another step in the right direction. This game offers enough to give the recommendation to any Mortal Kombat fan as well as any fighting fan in general.
