Mortal Kombat Komplete Edition might have been the last nail in the coffin Midway was building for the Mortal Kombat series because most of the 3D games were bearable at best and the series went downhill since it decided to say goodbye to 2D. Luckily this part made me love the series again. It pays homage to best years of this fighting game. We relive the events of first three tournaments so it's somewhat of a recap but frankly speaking I don't mind at all. Gameplay is great, the added X-ray moves that looks fantastic. This title is a lot of fun!
Mortal Kombat 9 is the best part of the series, both in graphics, and in content(yet to play X at this point, so keep that in mind). The story is good, the characters make sense, even the over the top ones(never thought Stryker will be likeable, but damn...i liked him here). Also, in this version you get Freddy krueger, who is...well, he is the perfect counter against shao kahn. Or anyone else really. The claws are almost mild in a game like this, but his legs...the seem to be longer then the others, and he's able to jump kick Kahn every time! That might be a cheap victory, but against him i take it every day! The other extras are okay, but nothing to write about. They vere all in the previous games at least once.
This is the first Mortal Kombat game since 4, and boy, we missed a lot! Well, don't worry about that too much, because this one is about the retcon the whole story altogether.... I don't really care for the Xray combos and stuff, and while i admit the graphics look nice here, my main concern is the game itself, which i have to say, is pretty great. You can use distinct fighting styles, have a ton of special moves, and there is an army of characters, both classic, and never before seen on the pc. Also, the story mode is pretty fun, if at times a little weird. The online game is rather good, and you can usually find someone to play with. Nowadays most people play with X, so it takes a little longer, but the community still exists. The most fun is the local multiplayer anyway. It just feels good to hear my opponent, when i can successfully execute their avatar.
Graphics - This game has pretty good graphics, the characters look like they should, only maybe too much like they were made out of plastic. The performance is good even with my pretty old hardware. Gameplay - All the characters have their traditional moves and combos and some extra. Response time is good enough for an average joe like me. Also, difficulty levels can be put low enough to not get devastated. It is easy to learn some basic special moves. Sounds - Sounds of beating and kicking are pretty loud. Music is faithful to the series and does not distract. Gore - Excessive, as is usual in the series.
Mortal Kombat Komplete Edition (aka MK9) is a reboot of the franchise, and, for the most part, is an enjoyable game. While the story mode adds a different dimension to the game, it's ultimately the one-on-one brawler fighting that we're all here for, and MK delivers in abundance. There are a tremendous amount of lag during cutscenes, not to mention the long loading times, as well as the low-quality videos thrown in, almost all as a result of this game being a port from console to PC. The violence, while adding realism to the fight, also border on the extreme and impossible, and isn't everyone's cup of tea. But, then again, this is MK, why would NetherRealm Studios release a game your little sister would want to play? I'm happy with any MK title, as long as there'll always be the one-on-one fighting beneath all the polish and trinkets.
