SummaryDefinitely the best arcade to console port of Mortal Kombat.
The GoodThe game is quick and easy to learn. The fatalities are an interesting diversion. It might not have look pretty, but it sure has the feel of the original Mortal Kombat arcade machine (try saying that about the SNES version which plays like jerky molasses). Sega actually lets MK have the blood and gore.
The BadEven though it is great for pick up and play gaming sessions, the depth of the MK games has always been much lower then the Street Fighter games. The playstyles of the characters are all very simular only differing in special moves and personality. The graphics are passable, but are quite a step back from the arcade version.
