Great idea of overloading the character roster, but no so much with the fatalities.

MK Armageddon has the right ideas but the execution leaves much to be desired. The previews explained that the character roster was at an all time high. Pretty much every fighter in the MK universe was gonna show up for this release and I was excited. What I didn't expect was a let down by the one key component in a MK game............finishing moves. The fatalities are a joke and nothing more than a mere after thought. With the ability to create your own you might think this a good move on Midway's part but sadly we see the game disappointing even the most hardcore fans. The FMV at the start, the story, and special moves are a highlight to a game with so much promise. The stage fatalities are awesome and the ability to create your own fighter was better than ever. Overall, if you can find this game for under $10, then go for it.

What it did right...........Roster, story, controls.

What it did wrong.........FATALITIES! (How do you screw that up Midway?)
