The Mortal Kombat franchise has always seen its violence as the integral selling point for their games. From the very beginning, this violence has been highlighted by the end-of-fight fatalities in which a particularly gruesome move can be performed on the defeated foe. And with the latest installment of Mortal Kombat, we have been blessed with the most disturbing, sadistic…and funniest fatalities of all time!
The latest four videos in this series will show Jax, Johnny Cage, Kabal and Kano executing their fatalities.

Graphically, Mortal Kombat looks terrific. Many of the backgrounds are favorites you’ll recognize from MK 1-3 along with a few new ones. The level of detail in each of these stages in breath taking and well appreciated from those of us who have been playing MK since the beginning. In total, there are over 30 stages to select from! Character designs are innovative and unique. Thankfully MK has gone back to its roots including only the essential characters while leaving many of the utterly ridiculous characters the 3D games in the garbage bin.
Music is great, comprised of many remixed tunes from all MK games. The sound provides a ton of bone crunching blows and blood curdling screams. Characters all have individual voices that adds new life to them. The dialog in the game’s story mode is very well done and sucks you right into the world of Mortal Kombat.
Speaking of the games story-mode, it is without a doubt the best story mode I have ever played in a fighting game. Lasting around 8 hours, you’ll play various MK characters who are trying to defend the Earth Realm from invasion. The story is a re-telling of Mortal Kombat 1, 2 and 3. It’s surprisingly well written and the fact that the story and combat flow into one another without any loading also enriches the experience all the more.
There are plenty of extras to unlock in the Krypt. Like previous 3D MK games you’ll get Koins from playing through the various modes. Then, when entering the Krypt you’re taken to a graveyard where you’ll literally defile graves and execute helpless victims to unlock treasures. Everything from game art to additional Fatalities are all unlocked here. There are also a ton of extra mini-games to be found in The Challenge tower. Here you’ll perform various tests like executing a certain number of special moves in a given amount of time, blasting away hordes zombies, to more traditional games like “Test Your Might” or “Test Your Sight”.
With solid gameplay, tons of modes, and great music and sound; Mortal Kombat gets a flawless victory! It’s a large game that’s going to hold your interest with the single player modes for a long time but the online mode will (presumably) keep players koming back for more! If you’ve ever loved Mortal Kombat or you’re just a fan of good fighting games, this new reboot one is well worth your hard earned cash.
