    Classic fighter, excellent port yet a bit too easy.

    Graphics: Being this is a pretty early Genesis game, they're not anything to fangasm over, although they're not too bad. The coolest part of anything visual I'd have to say would be the fatalities. Sound/Music: Rating... Read Full Review

    Mortal Kombat on the Genesis is just like the Snes version, except it's gory fun.

    The good: Gory, bloody game-play can be accessed via blood code, soundtrack is shockingly better than the Super Nintendo version, spooky backgrounds and detailed environments The bad: Graphics are bland compared to the ... Read Full Review

    The best fighting game on the Sega Genesis.

    I played this game more than any other Genesis game I own (except for Sonic games). This is a must have for anybody who owns a Genesis. Gameplay- I have to admit, most of the time this game can become a button masher. Bu... Read Full Review

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

    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 (Nintendo wanted Midway to ... Read Full Review
