Why cant all fighting games be like MK9??The game is litterally perfect in everyway well except for the kinda stiff fighting and the lame towermode prize (dont worry no spoilers) but thats it.The devs who made the game are really good in all aspects of fighting games.Lets get started.
Story:The game is bang on with story.The cinematic cut scenes are really good.but the goal of this thread is to compare it to other fighting games.First up.Tekken 6.The problem with tekkens stroy/arcade mode/single player whatever you want to call it.The story doesnt consist of 1 vs 1 battles instead the story is more of a beat em up.Most fans wanted it to be a tourneyment thinga a miga.But it was some lame beat em up with an alright story.Mortal kombats story has great cinematics and story.
Compare it to street fighter.Street fighter has a good arcade mode since you can replay it and it has alot of difficulty settings.But the intros and endings suck!Just watch Ibukis and you will know what i mean.
Dont even get me started on MVC3
The charachters are really good and varied.Someone could say "half the charachters are ningas but different colours.But all the ningas have varied move sets scorpion is fire,smoke is smoke,reptile is a lizard,ermac is a telekinetic thingy,sub zero uses ice moves.In street fighter 6 charachters are just martial art people with the same basic moves and just one move of their own eg.akuma has the same moves as ryu but he has a teleport thing,ken is the same as ryu but he has a fire shryuken.In mortal kombat 9 the charachters arent over nude and only 2 charachters are undecent milena and shheva.The game isnt like dead or alive where the female charachters arent even fighters.
DLC:Mortal kombat devs were really smart with this.None of the dlc itself is three but if you download the compatability packs you get free alt outfits (: .
Controls:The game doesnt have complicated as hell stuff like assists,BNB combos,mash ups,complicated hyper controls.The game is just good.On street fighter and MVC3 you have to put 30 hours into a charachter to be good with the charachter.In mortal kombat you can use like 9 charachters.
so yh my faviorite fighting game is MK9
