Mortal Kombat Arcade Kollection Review

PlayDevil
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 Arcade Kollection

oxmonline.com
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?

  • Conclusion: It’s cheesy, vicious and unashamedly graphic, but Mortal Kombat is also a mature and rewarding beat-em up with plenty to offer. As with any good game in the fighting genre, a patient player willing to learn the various special moves will have a distinct advantage over a button-basher. Should you spend time with the game to discover the combos, you’ll be sure to dazzle your friends with a host of impressive spine-cracking moves.

Gaming Evolution

  • Conclusion: Mortal Kombat is back and it is bigger and bloodier than ever. This 2D fighter packs a punch, gives fans of the franchise many nostalgic moments, and has all the characters we have grown to love and even the ones we hate. With all the different modes you will have hours upon hours of time to play this title. Challenge Tower alone will eat up constant hours of frustration and joy as you pass each challenge.

Mortal Kombat Xbox 360 Review

Console Obsession
10 May 2011
  • Excerpt: Whilst many of the less experienced fighting game players have long enjoyed the Mortal Kombat series for its bloody combat and welcoming mechanics, it has never really been a franchise that has been concerned with depth and meticulous balance and, for this reason, avid fighting game fans have never considered it as anything more than a gimmicky fighter, but with this reboot, simply titled Mortal Kombat , NetherRealm Studios has went to the effort of attempting to garner...

  • Excerpt: There are two purposes Blaze’s pyramid serves: the single tombstone that marks the graves of the realms’ greatest warriors, and the birthplace of the Apocalypse. Picking up where Mortal Kombat: Armageddon left off, Shao Kahn has emerged as the victor of the demented free-for-all. His grand prize: absorbing the infinite powers of Blaze, and a chance to turn his long time nemesis, Raiden, into hamburger.

Review: Mortal Kombat (Xbox 360, PS3)

Gamer 2.0
27 April 2011
  • Conclusion: All the criticisms throughout this review are extremely minor compared to the massive problems that have plagued the series in years gone by. Better still, Netherrealm Studios has future-proofed Mortal Kombat by way of a server-side management system that allows them to tweak the properties of any individual move in the game as needed to repair any problems that might be discovered, entirely patch-free.
