I have to say:mk:armageddon has potential,,

User Rating: 7 | Mortal Kombat: Armageddon PS2
if only this game was more like deception,,this game is a winner but also a fail;p

though konquest mode is still great and easiely the best part,,this time sliglhty better than that one found in mk:deception;p

4 most plusses,,, : 1 : the arenas exelent as always ,, 2 : konquest mode in this are the best,,amybe the strongest part of this game,, 3 ; story is awesome and exelent as always ; 4; online is good fun and creater fighter top notch,,well almost ,,but still it is and death traps ,,car-races=),,;)

the negative ; char plays too much alike ,, decent fatalaties are gone,,fatalaties are gone,,,

i very much agree with u,,,many charaxters have the same moves and so on and not many :(,,and theyr not too fun doing,...characters are too un.intersting--while they are not,uf u know what i mean...baraka...can be boring for example...and 3 sheeva loook alikes,this goes very much through the game...but the plusses in my book is that the gameplay ,levels, and son on makes it interesting and fun...it has very much potential as for the rest of latest mk titles..and as u say,,it can be slow fighting and dull at times...as for motor kombat and quest is not of my interest,,maybe a slack....and ihave to say that,,,
,,,,either im getting older and games are not s ofun anymore,,,or it is actual the truth,,or maybe both,,..i player mk:3 in my yougner days i am now 20.....it was so fun..and great beating the hell out out of ppl.it was s ofun doing that cyrax,,net for example it was so hilarious crazy....but is it now HMM...,i like mk,,still if it isnt so great...same goes with TEKKEN 5,,it is not that great that great,it is very good but not great,,
