MK IX (or Mortal Kombat) is not just the best MK game in years, it's easily the best arcade fighter since SFIV. The MK series has had a bit of a mixed history with entries 1-3 being warmly held, then a ton of variations of 3, some side games and a few sequels, all of varying, and usually declining, quality. Fortunately MKIX takes a lot of that baggage and just tosses it out to do a series reboot. Gone are the 48 character rosters. A smaller crew of more tightly created and more individual fighters takes place. The story is a 'reboot' but mostly follows along the MK 1 and 2 lines with a couple neat twists. Graphically it's very solid. While SFIV went with a very different aesthetic, MKIX is mostly 'realistic' looking, but with nice visual flair. The game was pretty buggy at release but runs stable now (2015 onwards) and is a fantastic fighting game. Controls are tight, moves are flashy and fatalities just as brutal and satisfying as alway. Highly recommended.
A tad dated.DrippingSins | Aug. 27, 2015 | See all DrippingSins's reviews »
Game runs smooth. The graphics are nice, but they are noticeably dated. Though it did come out several years ago. Otherwise it is a fun game with a great story and a lot of replayability. If you dig this one, you may also give Injustice a shot.
Great port and best revival of the seriesklusps | July 22, 2015 | See all klusps's reviews »
The last Mortal Kombat game I played was Mortal Kombat Deception on the Nintendo Gamecube. After being done with 3-D fighting games for a while, Mortal Kombat Komplete Edition is a breath of fresh air. I always enjoyed 2-D fighting games like the original Mortal Kombat on the SNES, Street Fighter, Primal Rage, and Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom. The news that this game is returning back to 2-D was a huge plus. Just like any Mortal Kombat game the fighting is brutal and the fatalities are even more brutal and fun to look at. I also enjoyed the story mode a lot, more then any Mortal Kombat game that I can recently remember. Overall recommend it if you're a Mortal Kombat fan and a 2-D fighting fan in general.

I've been a fan of Mortal Kombat since I was a kid with a Super Nintendo. The games have always been unimpressive, but unique in terms of actual combat. It was the themes, the characters, the world around them, and the over-the-top violence and cheesiness of the whole thing that caught my eye. This time around, they kept all that in tact, but crafted it around an excellent fighting game. The controls are near-perfect, the action is well paced, the combo system is simple enough for newbies to utilize, but deep enough for veterans to feel like they have an edge. it's not the largest cast of characters, but they're all unique and fun to control (except Jax, he's always controlled horribly, he's so cool, it sucks). The environments and characters look amazing, and the story mode is easily the best in the series. Even when you've played through with every character and unlocked everything, there's still the daunting Challenge Tower to keep you going. Easily the best playing MK game, easily the best and longest story mode, and a plethora of extras to keep you playing.
