    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

    A very hard game but the best!
