Storyline

Seven martial artists from Earth must battle in sorcerer Shang Tsung's super secret tournament. For the past 9 of these tournaments, Shang Tsung's four-armed mutant bodyguard Goro has won all of them. Should he win the tenth, Earth will be left at the mercy of Shang Tsung's Outworld. Playable characters include Raiden, the Thunder God invited to fight in the tournament, in human (and thus killable) form; Liu Kang, a Shaolin monk determined to stop Shang Tsung; Johnny Cage, a Hollywood movie star who wants the publicity; Sonya Blade, a US Special Forces agent; Kano, a tyrant being pursued by Sonya Blade; Sub-Zero, a mercenary ninja with orders to assassinate Shang Tsung and Scorpian, a murdered ninja who has been brought back from the dead to try and kill Sub-Zero, the man who murdered him.

Trivia

Originally, creators Ed Boon and John Tobias wanted to create a video game starring Jean-Claude Van Damme, with a digitized version of the action star fighting villains. Unfortunately, Van Damme was already in negotiations with another video game company (that game was never realized either) so that plan was scrapped. They decided instead to create a game loosely based on Enter the Dragon (1973). Van Damme's likeness is still clearly seen in the character of Johnny Cage: a Caucasian Hollywood martial arts movie star whose signature move is leg-split. Ironically, Van Damme would make his digitized video game debut in Street Fighter: The Movie (1995). See more »

One of the best Sega Genesis games I have ever played
19 July 2007 | by (Chantilly, Virginia, USA) – See all my reviews

MORTAL KOMBAT, in my opinion, is one of the best Sega Genesis games I have ever played. Even though Even though I haven't owned a Nintendo Wii for very long, I enjoy this game very much. In addition, beating the game makes me want to play it even more. If you want to know what happens, you'll have to play the game. When and if this game is made available for download on the Nintendo Wii, I'm definitely going to download it. Before I wrap this up, I'd like to say that the people at Sega Genesis know how to keep video game fanatics entertained. Now, in conclusion, if you're a video game fanatic, this is definitely one you'll want to play and own.
