This is only for oldschool fans. MKAK gives you the opportunity to play the first three klasic games of mortal kombat.
That and a new implemented multiplayer option, that is flawless, and a user-friendly interface, you can select what to play (MKI, MKII or UMK3) or if you are playing and you dont know your character special moves / fatalities, you can access your character controls with the menu.
This is a must-get if you like old mortal kombat games, or if you like fighters.

Even though Mortal Kombat series is certainly not a game for kids, I actually spent a huge chunk of my childhood playing it, mostly MK 2 and 3.
The Arcade Kollection was a great way to relive one of the greatest experience in gaming ever. This game certainly has a lot of flaws, especially now when the 2D graphics and gore aren't anything spectacular, but it is still one of the best fighting games available on PC. Seriously, there isn't almost any competition. Sure - you can play SF4 or SFxTekken, but actually i had lot more fun performing fatalities as Scorpion, Sub-Zero, Noob Saibot and rest of the characters.
If you like old-school, fighting games, and you aren't afraid of challanges (trust me, these games are haaaaaaard!~~), then you should give it a go. Also keep in mind, that you can get it for as low as 2$, and you are getting 3 games instead of 1, all of them have very lively multiplayer and stuff. Worth it.

I have loved Mortal Kombat ever since I was a little kid. It is also one of the few fighters I enjoyed. When this was announced for the PC I was extremely excited but the quality of this port is poor. The game uses GFWL so it is a pain for matchmaking and uses the Unreal engine to emulate which causes the game to use a lot more memory than you would think.
The core games are still there and it is still the good fighter you know and loved but the package itself is a little sloppy.

There's anyone here who spend his/her teens at the '90s and don't play Mortal Kombat? I guess not. Mortal Kombat was a cult classic the '90s and a real nightmare for the parents. MK is maybe still the most violent video games ever made. Of course you can turn off the blood, but fatalities still gory. The new Arkade Collection is contains the first 3 games. 1992 Mortal Kombat, 1993 Mortal Kombat II and 1995 Mortal Kombat 3 Ultimate. Yeah, no Mortal Kombat 3, which in my opinion the weakest, since it was lack of playable characters. Ultimate technically the same game, but with more maps and more characters. The PC version was updated to Unreal3 engine, no joke. Also make sure you install the latest PhysX driver. The game graphics looks good, sadly it using a curtained aspect ratio. But you can choose various monitor setting. TV, arcade or normal view. The game also has a hint system, you can press Esc and check the move lists. Anyway, it's still hard to make even the easiest moves. The game uses Games for Windows LIVE! For achievements and matchmaking. Since the PC version has a multiplayer mode too.
If you ever played any Mortal Kombat game or saw the 1995 movie you must buy this! Since not much MK game get a PC port.

I played all 3 games and it brought back nostalgia but the network code and graphics engine seem to be the worst aspects of this game. It still has the original gameplay but it just doesn't play like the originals.
It also has GFWL which makes it buggy compared to other online clients, which may be the reason that it lags so much in online play.
Overall I still like the game, just seems they could have done a lot better, like real widescreen support and smoother online play.
