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.

It started a revolution... lots of blood was spilled.
25 July 2009 | by (Noctropolis) – See all my reviews

It was 1992. I was at a children party in a very well known Pizza Place with all kinds of amusement park games.

I decided to play arcades when suddenly, a video game caught my attention because of it's realism and most of it, because of the violence level. It was Mortal Kombat. Since that day, my life changed... well, my video game life.

I spent hours playing it on the arcade and I even bought the snes and genesis version. I was thrilled! It was one of those video games that changed history because of well you know, fatalities, special moves, creepy settings, creepy sounds and atmosphere, etc. It wasn't the first horror video game but it paved the road for extreme violence in arcades and home systems overall.

The plot is excellent and very interesting. You don't get tired of it and mainly because of the characters background.

You just need to play it on the Arcade to experience it's greatness. It's something I just can't describe with words... Let the Mortal Kombat begin.
