Mortal Kombat review

25 June 2012
  • Pros: Brutal, bloody fighting, Good roster, lots of extra features, Lengthy story mode is surprisingly fun
  • Cons: Still not as balanced or tight as SF, Hard to punish whiffed moves, projectile spam, Coin reward system is both stingy and needless

Mortal Kombat Arcade Kollection Review

24 November 2011
  • Excerpt: Mortal Kombat is the cult favourite one on one beat em up series first unleashed in the early 1990’s. At the time the one on one beat em up genre was quickly establishing itself as the most popular in arcades and home consoles and developers everywhere were releasing titles to jump onto the bandwagon.

Mortal Kombat (2011)

Break it Down
5 November 2011
  • Excerpt: Summary [9.5 out of 10] After years of shifting to a 3D format, the Mortal Kombat series has come back to its 2D roots and the results are bloody and glorious. Something of a reboot, Mortal Kombat has a lot to offer with a large roster of fighters, a new story, tons of modes, plenty of secrets, fatalities, tons of blood and an improved fighting system that feels fluid and exciting.

Review: Mortal Kombat Arcade Kollection (360, PS3)

Gamer 2.0
25 September 2011
  • Conclusion: The main reason to buy this game is if you’re a nostalgic fan from the early 90s who wants to relive the series’ infancy, or someone who has been holding out for that elusive combination of arcade-perfection and button configuration in an Ultimate Mortal Kombat 3 release. It seems strange, given how many times these games have been re-released over the last several years, that we’re just now getting around to configuration options.

Mortal Kombat Arcade Kollection

23 September 2011
  • Excerpt: Despite the recent surge in HD remakes of classic games, the Arcade Kollection is a celebration of unadulterated, old-school graphics and gameplay. This XBLA pack includes authentic arcade editions of the original Mortal Kombat, the ever-popular Mortal Kombat II, and the less-well-received Ultimate Mortal Kombat 3, presented almost exactly the way you remember them — fatalities, babalities, and animalities intact. How authentic?
  • Pros: + Totally authentic reproductions of the arcade classics., + Three games for 10 bucks? Not bad.
  • Cons: ? Okay, now where’s the HD remix?

Mortal Kombat Arcade Kollection

Auracore MediaWorks
6 September 2011
  • Summary: While they may be classics, this collection just isn't worth losing your head over
  • Pros: These games are flawless emulations of their arcade counterparts; simple online match setup and mechanics; allows gamers to pause during gameplay; helpful move list accessible while paused; three games for the price of one is still value even if one title carries the collection
  • Cons: As arcade ports, all the nuisances of these classics come along for the ride including unforgiving and unfair AI; online play is seldom fluid and prone to slow downs and freezing; collection does not enhance visuals or audio in any way; still a great challenge to pull off special movies and the myriad of fatalities due to spastic controls

Mortal Kombat Arcade Kollection

Digital Chumps
1 September 2011
  • Conclusion: Mortal Kombat Arcade Kollection's low price forgives the absence of modes and options we usually take for granted. The problem is it's also lacking what amounts to basic functionality. The arcade ports are lazy and desperately in need of a patch and the online interface was plagued with lag. The worst part is the higher your appreciation for Mortal Kombat's golden years, the more glaring Arcade Kollection's gaffs become.

Mortal Kombat Review

5 June 2011
  • Excerpt: Mortal Kombat is back with a franchise reboot promised to take fighting titles a full step forward. For a franchise that is beloved by gamers of almost all ages it’s a bold marketing ploy to say this is the best game in the franchise’s history. However, with an extremely deep storyline mode and a totally remade control system which is nothing short of awesome, Mortal Kombat (which is out for Xbox 360 and PS3) is a really great fighting title.
