User Reviews

A perfect conversion of a defining moment in arcade history. DOS Zovni (9384)
The "Edited For Content" Edition SNES Lawnmower Man (140)
Don't Believe the Hype Genesis Liam Dowds (51)
Has the blood and gore intact, but lacks the stunning visuals and sounds of the SNES Genesis Stsung (52)
Worthy (if toned-down) adaptation of the coin-op SNES Stsung (52)
Definitely the best arcade to console port of Mortal Kombat. Genesis scabadoo (32)
A near-perfect translation of the arcade game. DOS Trixter (8743)
Butchered. The only way to describe this port SNES Mr. Huh (112)
A watered-down Genesis clone of MK SNES Kadeem Gomez (35)
Mortal Kombat 1 enhanced with extra graphics. SEGA CD gametrader (229)
