We all know that sequels and seconds parts to movies and games always suck to gamers because the developer either took out one of the favorite options of players or did something really stupid to make the game lame as hell. In this case the developer outdid themselves with the new Mortal Kombat that is now out on the Microsoft Xbox 360. The game is also available for other gaming platforms including the PS3 but I am only talk on the behalf of the the Xbox 360 version.
As for graphics, you know the Xbox 360 delivers some of the best graphics in modern day gaming so it is definitely a good render plus it surpasses the conventional 2D mortal kombat we are all familiar with from the PS2 and Nintendo consoles. Gone are the days when we had to search the internet and gaming magazines looking for fatality moves as the developers has added a few moves in the games’ main menu. I don’t think it works with the kinect but if it does the developers just got three thumbs up even though I only have two thumbs.
They have continued the game with a lot of characters for the first part, characters such as Kano, Sub-Zero, Liu Kung, Lord Raiden, Reptile, Sonya, Johnny Cage and Scorpion. They have even added a character who is another favorite of mind, who you have to complete a few quests to unlock, Kratos from God of War. Sweet isn’t it, that’s exactly what I said when I found out too. There are also a few added features that will brighten your smile a bit, they also added the ultimate multi-player experience with up to 4 players something you don’t see much anymore unless you are playing online. Speaking about online, it also comes with Xbox Live which enables the gamer to team up with friends to challenge players online. The first thing you will see when you start the game, is the screen with Sub-Zero and Scorpion with the game’s logo. Press start and Scorpion will uppercut Sub-Zero and see his jaw get broken with a glimpse at the X-ray as well. The game was released on the 19th of April, 2011 and so far has already gotten an average score of 9/10 from gamers all over the world.
In my conclusion, I am saying that the developers have taken an old favorite, added more blood and gore plus a better graphical experience. If you love Mortal Kombat before you are going to love this new one even more, you will like the new X-ray moves which will instantly attach you to the game. Amazon already has it for both platforms, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 for $49.99 and $49.99.
