This game plays extremely well on the unreal tournament engine. I feel like a kid again back in the arcade putting my quarters on the screen saying " I got next!". The fact that you can also play online takes it too a whole new level. I can play with people all around the world which would have been mind boggling back in the early 90's. All around an amazing collection of one of the greatest American made fighting games. Controller and fightstick friendly.

I picked this up because I thoroughly enjoyed the Mortal Kombat titles on my old Sega Genesis. Time has not been kind to the games in this collection but the visuals are still serviceable. What caught me by surprise however was the difficulty. It would appear that the games are based on the original arcade titles that were a tad harder than the home conversions so I am having a hard time even on the easier settings. If you are a fan of these titles and want to relive the nostalgia then this package is worth it. I only wish that they included some extras like the unlockables that the latest Mortal Kombat title has.

The port itself has some flaws as mentioned in other reviews. For me the greatest flaw is that you can't customize the keyboard configuration freely in the game you have to modify the game's configuration file. But if you can ignore these you will have a good time with the game.
Aside from the flaws the game manages to bring back the original arcade versions of Mortal Kombat games. I like the fact that they didn't touch the games (didn't try to remaster it or make it "HD") they are the same arcade versions which were released many years ago.
If you are a fan of the MK series and played MK1-2-3 a lot don't hesitate, buy it.

This game it's a masterpiece collection of the epic first three Mortal Kombat games in their arcade versions. But I don't like some things, like you need connect to Games for Windows Live for play this game. Also, you can play multiplayer, but you need other PC and game, and playing this online is disappointing due to the lag. No local multiplayer, so forget about playing with a friend on your PC like old times. The worst thing is that this game isn't compatible with most of game pads, only works with Xinput controllers such as the 360 controller. And seems like this game will not have development work anymore. Moreover, I recommend buy this game, especially for MK fans and/or nostalgic people.

This is a game that old school gamers will like (as is my case). This collection contains the original arcade version of the games MK1, MK2 and UMK3. But it is not so perfect as well. They were not remastered. The games were not turned into widescreen. Can not change the resolution. There options filters, but are dispensable. Well, it is a great choice for people who lived at that time can recall the times of arcade. For the younger people, do not know if them will like it, because this is a not remastered version.
