I have been playing MK from the very first one on Sega. This is by far the worst one for me. The only upside: The graphics improved a lot. In general they messed up the characters completely by splitting them into 3 weaker ones. The same moves over and over and over... MK 9 had much more depth per character and you didn't have to switch every time you feel like doing a certain combo or using a certain ability that only the other "versions" of that character has. This sucks big time!! No thank you. This is the last MK I will be playing.
