Conclusion: Mortal Kombat Deception is definetely the best fighting game up to date with the controls being solid, the graphics are great, (at least the character models!) the music is awesome and the online aspect is better then ever! Gameplay: Of course there is no real story in Mortal Kombat. However, there is an all new "Konquest Mode" where you get to play the life of Shujinko, one of the MK warriors.

Summary: It may not be the best boxing game of all time - but that's not what it's designed to be. It's designed to be a fun game for fans of the Rocky genre. Personally I am overwhelmed by how enjoyable the game is. The training games are a lot of fun. Being able to play career mode with 4 different characters is also a treat.
Summary: No doubt that this games predecessor: Rocky, was THE best Rocky game ever! Of course being the die-hard Rocky fan that I am, I had a blast with the previous game! Now the sequel steps in. Sadly, for those of you, like me, who are big Rocky fans, this title is not as easy to come by. For what reason I do not know. I almost speculate because the game has gotten decent to mediocre reviews from these "professional" gaming sites. But who cares about their opinion?
Conclusion: Mortal Kombat truly is the king of fighters. This is by far the best MK game in the series. It's best element lies within the Online mode. The replay value is high due to online play, and makes the replay value much better than that of it's predecessor. It's packed with various modes, and lots of unlockable goodies. It's definately a must buy for any fan of the genre. Online play alone is a good enough reason to buy this game.
Summary: Rocky Legends is awesome - you have 4 career stories to go through in any order - Rocky, Creed, Lang, and Drago. It is compatible with the Xbox 360 and emulation is good (sometimes the boxer intro music doesn't play). There are lots of things to unlock such as minigames, boxers, venues, and all the movie trailers. It's very atmospheric and gameplay is spot on. The slow mo knock out replays are lots of fun in multiplayer bouts too.
Summary: THE PLOT: Well, this is Rocky... For those who don't know, the Rocky films were possibly the most successful boxing films of all times. Despite not being a boxing fan myself, I've seen them all, and we all know the music. Well, the game sticks rigidly to the film, with you taking the role of Rocky (or later on, his competitors) in trying to punch and bob your way out of trouble.
Pros: Excellent Gameplay, the fight order matches the films....
Summary: They don't call it legends for nothing! Prior to this game i wasn't really a fan of rocky, i bought it at the same time as fifa 2005 and i didnt touch fifa for days, i then went on to buy the rocky anthology, also worth a buy!. this game grabs you from the start and has amazing replayability, you will be on this game for hours fighting as Balboad, Creed, Lang and Drago in career mode or one of 30+ boxers in survival/knockout mode. Buy it!
