SummaryFun to play, but stupid none-the-less.
The GoodMortal Kombat is the only true landmark in fighting games which came after Street Fighter 2 because it used captured video sequences and featured relatively advanced graphics for the time. It's fun to play at first, but I got tired of it very fast.
The BadBeing a real hit didn't stop this game from being an overhyped piece of boring pixels. The music is decent but the sound effects are horrible, the graphics are all too colourless and pixelated, and everything about this game is just... well, no good. Also, even the Sega Genesis version of this game is better than the PC conversion (despite the obvious lack of decent colour palette) with better controls, better stability (the PC version crahsed on me every time I played it) and better sound, and the entire ordeal leaves a sour taste in my mouth every time I played it.
