Dokken bassist Jeff Pilson voices Johnny Cage, and one of the downloadable fighters is Nightmare of Elm Street villain Freddy Krueger - the third film in that series featured Dokken's classic hit, Dream Warriors.

"You will NEVER win!"
27 January 2013 | by (The Underverse) – See all my reviews

Sometimes I wonder if Warner really know what a goldmine they are sitting on with the Mortal Kombat franchise. This is a series that features literally dozens of characters with rich backgrounds and deep mythology. But so far all we've had are two trashy movies back in the mid-90s. With so many sequels and spin-offs the video games series has now been rebooted with this current-gen monstrosity.

The difficulty of Mortal Kombat is ridiculous. The game simply doesn't give you a chance. The rivals seem to move at twice the speed as you do, leaving you unable to do anything apart from getting pulverized. There's simply no way you have time to punch in the codes for combo moves or specials. And since every character has different codes you'd have to be an idiot savant to memorize all these. The only way I managed to finish the story mode was through trickery and chance. The collision detection is also very inconsistent, which almost caused me to turn green with rage and rip through my clothing on a few occasions. It's a very bloody game too, with brutal fatalities and 'X-ray' moves where we get to see cool shots of bones breaking and guts shredding...oh wait...I'm not an angry 15-year-old boy. Actually, these moments are kinda distasteful and desensitizing. The game certainly earns its adult rating.

There are 51 trophies featured in the game but I only managed to unlock 32% of them as the Platinum literally requires THOUSANDS of hours of gameplay. I don't want to imagine what kind of person would commit that amount of time to a video game.

Pros: Great sound effects, lots of colorful stages.

Cons: Long, long, loooooong, unskippable cut-scenes, extreme difficulty.
