What Gamespot Users have to say about Mortal Kombat

    How the hell did Mortal Kombat pass as a Game Boy game?

    Rated on September 28, 2009 by Blueguy93

    The good: Graphics look nice. The bad: Slow tedious game-play, since the Game boy is monochrome, blood can't be seen, bad fatalities. Game-play: 3/10 Graphics: 10/10 Sound: 6/10 Value: 1/10 Ti...

    I suffered through this tripe. So humor me. Let me be at peace with writing an inanely, insanely long pointless review.

    [Note: This is a re-review. The original review I wrote three years ago does not do this game justice. Sit back, relax and enjoy the slough.] It was a Wednesday night. I had Eduoard Lalo's Cello Co...

    MK raised the bar for all other fighting games during its reign of the arcade era.

    Rated on July 08, 2008 by blacksaibot

    Mortal Kombat has always been, and always will be. This is probably not the best port for the arcade version due to the lack of blood and a few alterations to some of the characters fatalities (Ninten...

    There are other, better iterations of Mortal Kombat. Don't bother with this one.

    Rated on October 16, 2006 by GMAN32X

    The best way to describe this game is: BAD, with a capital B. Take everything you know and love about Mortal Kombat, throw it away, and put what's left on a Game Boy cartridge and this is the end res...

    It's a decent fighter even though I'm a little biased but here goes.....

    This was the first videogame I ever played. I was eight years old, and I found my uncle's old Game Boy. This was the only game that was in the case, so I popped it in, and played for hours. This game ...

    Pocket Kombat Fighting itself

    Rated on November 20, 2006 by neowelchsevilsm

    Not the best installment of the mortal kombat series, in fact it's probably the worse. The frame rate is just bad, the character's look like heaping piles of pixels. The moves can be a pain to pull ...

    While slow at times, the Gameboy version of the controversial arcade game is an addicting one.

    When Acclaim announce in 1993 that they were going to port Midway's popular, but gruesome arcade game "Mortal Kombat" to home console, there were objections from Nintendo's quality control department ...

    The only question you have to ask yourself, is why they changed Sub-Zero's freeze combination.

    Rated on November 18, 2007 by WinWalter

    Let me begin by saying that Mortal Kombat is an immensely popular series of games. Ever sense it came out in the arcade in the early 1990s, it's hard to deny that for a long time, it was MK or SFII f...

    the contest begins anew as warriors once again gather to partake in Mortal Kombat

    Rated on February 20, 2007 by stAmbrosius

    Mortal Kombat on the gameboy isn't the worst game ou there. It's not even the worst Mortal Kombat on a handheld. You can choose between 6 fighters from the original Mortal Kombat, namely Kano, Sonya,...

    I've been broken and bruised with this port....sadly.

    Rated on May 01, 2009 by FallenBlackWing

    Based on what many gamers have been saying, I've bought this game, played it and I purely hate it. Laggy, slow, combinations changed and most fatalities are censored anyways. Gameboy was my favorite p...
