    Greatest Mortal Kombat yet

    Mortal Kombat is one of the greatest fighting series around. Its violent for those that enjoy all the gore that comes with fighting. Fatalities add icing to the cake and are a HUGE improvement from the last installment... Read Full Review

    Back with a vengeance!

    This is how MK should be, this game isn't noob friendly, you must put your time into learning the combos. There's a combo list, but they are just basic, the best part is that you could come up with your own combos by mix... Read Full Review

    If you've ever played a Mortal Kombat game then you know full well what to expect when you pick up this title. You want over the top moves, from even more over the top characters, all while making your opponent spill as ... Read Full Review

    If you can remember back to Mortal Kombat Trilogy...it's that...for this generation of gaming. MK's RETURN TO FORM.

    It's been a LONG LONG time since I have been interested, at all, in a fighting game. The most recent fighting game I actually paid for (not played) was probably...the first Tekken. Anyway, I've been a fan of Mortal Komba... Read Full Review

    A wonderful trip back in the Mortal Kombat universe with some nice refining touches.

    I think a quick background explaining my history with Mortal Kombat is in order. As I am rather aged, I can remember playing the first Mortal Kombat in the arcades when it first came out. I can thus recall the sheer jo... Read Full Review

    Best Mortal Kombat to date, even though it has some flaws.

    Mortal Kombat 9 is by far the best in the series. I grew up playing the older MK games, the majority of which were amazing. But this one tops them all. The graphics are pretty good for a fighting game such as this. Sure,... Read Full Review
