Based on what many gamers have been saying, I've bought this game, played it and I purely hate it. Laggy, slow, combinations changed and most fatalities are censored anyways. Gameboy was my favorite portable console at the time, but until this game came in, I purely hate it (not the console, but the game). The music, gotta admit, was good. Gameplay is ok, but the combos, fatalities and the way the game plays has definately changed... for the worse.
I wonder if the other ports are just as good. But I rather not find out as I may have already known of the major poor quality of the Gameboy versions of the Mortal Kombat series.
So, I'm gonna take this game and getting my money back for the hurt I've experienced by this game and never play it again and go back to the Genesis (or the Arcade port for the PSP) and go back to my roots.
