Fun for those people into punching more blood out of your opponent than humanly possible
20 August 2014 | by WakenPayneSee all my reviews

I have to be honest, this is the first Mortal Kombat game I've played. I remember playing some Street Fighter when I was a kid but in all honesty, if I did play a Mortal Kombat game it would have to be a distant half-forgotten memory. So I sat down and played it and it's actually really good. The story is about trying to stop an evil emperor named Shao Kahn from taking over the world via a martial arts fighting tournament every 5000 years and if Earth wins, he doesn't invade. When it happens this time, he decides to create a new fighting tournament and when he fails that he decides to say "screw it" and invade anyway. Now Mortal Kombat newcomers will rarely be lost, the only point where I was was to pretty much expect that the fighters representing Earth have superpowers. The fighting is really fluent and Shao Kahn is probably one of the hardest bosses I've ever had to fight (I ended up having to jump around until I could attack from behind). In terms of fighting games, this is the best I have played and it's just a whole lot of fun.
