Review – Mortal Kombat: Deception

  • 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. You will not be disappointed.

  • 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. Raiden sacrificed himself, hoping to not only destroy Onaga, but also the Deadly Alliance. He succeeded in only possibly killing the sorcerous duo. Onaga was unharmed.

  • 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. Two years on, the second game in the current generation of the Midway beat-em-up has arrived under the name of Deception.

  • Excerpt: I recall when Mortal Kombat was first released to home consoles during the era of the SNES and Genesis. Nintendo would not allow the game to show blood and the developers were forced to show “sweatâ€? being beaten off the characters. Sega had no problem with blood and although the game didn’t look as sharp on the Genesis, players preferred to play it there.

Game Over Online

  • 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 better. Simply put, here was an "adult" game that didn't shy away from blood and carnage (it was set in a brutal fighting tournament, after all).

  • 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. But what it lacks in depth it makes up for in accessibility. Accessibility and blood. Accessibility and blood and sheer awesomeness.

  • 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. If you have been looking forward to this game you may be a little disappointed with the Konquest mode, but the other modes help make the game a solid choice.

  • Summary: Mortal Kombat: Deception packs in some completely off-the-wall gameplay modes, but the core one-on-one fighting action--whether you play it offline or online--is easily its best part.
