Mortal Kombat 9 kame out recently. Obviously I got it right away bekause I have always been such a big MK fan. I must say I am impressed with what they did with the game. Everything about it feels like Mortal Kombat! Which although seems like an obvious thing to say, if you have followed the series you know that isn’t always the case. Since MK3, Mortal Kombat has suffered some growing pains. They tried going 3D, adding complex fighting style systems and weapons systems and probably more stuff I never even played. This game is a welcome change. Reading hype about this game, the general feel was, they are going back to the roots. No gimmicks with 3D, no “fighting styles” no weapons kombat just back to the classic 2D zany violence. It has been a success.
