Mortal Kombat – ps3

MK 9 developers are promising a more darker, more serious, more gritty fighting game this time round and series creator Ed Boon has already revealed that the new Mortal Kombat will be a spiritual successor to Mortal Kombat II and III. The new Mortal Kombat game will cater to the needs of both veterans and newcomers, providing deep mechanics for the former and an an accessible combo system for the latter. The developers also plan to bring back the M-rated violence along with the classic fatalities.

The only area where Mortal Kombat feels antiquated is in its AI. On the higher difficulty levels, computer opponents are as quick-witted and fast-acting as the Flash. Bosses are annoyingly cheap. I realize they should be tougher than standard opponents, but giving them immunity to any attack, even when your foot is clearly crushing their face, is an artificial difficulty booster that should have stayed in the past. The other minor complaint I have is the lack of new characters, especially from a team that has such a history of creating memorable fighters.

After about a full week of playing Mortal Kombat every day, it completely changed my outlook on what fighting games can offer — not only to the competitive fighting game elite, but also casual players alike. I came to the realization that fighting games can be more than just a platform for competitive play. They can offer a number of creative and unorthodox ways for the player to interact with the characters and the world they live in, all while still providing a deep enough system to satisfy the hardcore crowd as well.

New to the game’s battle system is a power gauge, which allows you to either modify special attacks to make them more powerful with small amounts of the meter, or save up and use a full gauge to perform devastating "X-Ray" attacks. Though it is generally more practical in battle to deliver strong attacks in short bursts, I often found myself saving up for the latter, as "X-Ray" attacks are a lot cooler than they sound. What happens when you perform an X-Ray attack is the camera slows down, and the action zooms in to where you are about to hit. The flesh is then stripped away and you can see bone, muscles, and internal organs as they shatter, squish, and break. X-Ray attacks are almost as entertaining as the series’ famous fatalities, and are just as over the top. If you can’t get up and kick someone’s butt after being repeatedly stabbed in the back of the head until your skull fractures, you’re just not trying.

Ultimately, Mortal Kombat is an excellent game and, hopefully, it marks a rebirth of the franchise rather than just a one-off. It’s been a long time in the making and we can’t wait to see the improvements that will undoubtedly kome over time.

While many Mortal Kombats in the past were remembered for their excessive gore and not for their fighting engines, the latest Mortal Kombat is a legitimate competitive fighter… and it has enough gore to make parents run for the hills. Even though the single-player modes are rife with imbalances, the core experience in Mortal Kombat is exciting, challenging, and hella bloody.

For the most part, this new MK sticks to the characters and tone of the first few games, meaning tons of vicious, mean-spirited attacks with just a hint of humor; groin punches and hilariously excessive fatalities are in, farting attacks and tacked-on kart racer minigames are out. Even the roster preys upon the world’s fondness for MK1-3, pulling just about every single character from those early days into one game. It’s clear developer NetherRealm’s goal was to tug at our misty-eyed recollections of the past, and on that front, it totally succeeded.

What tactics there are stem from the new three-stage super gauge which fills as you take and dispense damage. Using up just one part powers up your existing moves, two together allow you to break out of a combo, and using the whole thing in one gives you access to a super move that sees you spearing people through the eyes or breaking their necks with your thighs.
