Ed Boon can rest easy, his Mortal Kombat reboot is a resounding success. With its creative modes, stellar story and revamped fighting mechanics, Mortal Kombat is one of the best fighting games on the PlayStation 3. Best of all, there's more than enough single-player content for even those who never want to go up against another human being. Flawless victory!

PlayStation 3Calm Down Tom (Apr 20, 2011)
Taking a step back from this release, you wonder what an MK fan would want in a new game that Ed Boon and his team haven’t already included. They seem to know the audience so well and have set such high standards for themselves that it’s hard to see how anyone but the most harsh critic could find anything to complain about. Beyond satisfying those hardcore fans, they have managed to create a brilliant game for even those who actively dislike the series. From detailed tutorials on how to achieve the brilliantly inventive fatalities to a great story mode, they have created a game as inviting as a fighting game can be. Without compromising on depth or complexity, they still have managed to craft a game anyone can enjoy. If a fighting game renaissance is possible, it will be Mortal Kombat – not Street Fighter – that brings it about.

Mortal Kombat isn't just a solid reboot of a beloved franchise; it's also one of the best fighting game of the year. NetherRealm Studios has finally made Mortal Kombat relevant. This is a package with an enviable amount of content, including a story mode that truly ups the ante for all fighting games in the future. If this is the new direction for this franchise, then I definitely want more Mortal Kombat!

Questo Mortal Kombat potrebbe non essere apprezzato dai puristi del genere, ma lo sarà senz'ombra di dubbio dai retrogamer, dai nostalgici e da tutti coloro che coi picchiaduro competono per divertirsi! Tecnicamente è un ottimo titolo, dalla incredibile longevità, che ha mantenuto intatto il sapore del picchiaduro di Midway, cosa rara e naturalmente apprezzata! Se anche non avreste mai provato il Mortal Kombat, ma siete curiosi o vi piacciono semplicemente i picchiaduro...non resterete delusi! Fidatevi, dà grandi soddisfazioni!

All in all, the pros far outweigh the cons. Aside from the online play I have nothing negative to say about this offering. This is a must have to any MK fan or fan of fighting games. I triumphantly proclaim that the Mortal Kombat franchise has been resurrected. Ed Boon and company have mustered a FLAWLESS VICTORY!

I have been playing this game for days now and it’s a testament that Mortal Kombat has truly returned to its roots. With an arcade style feel to it, awesome finishing moves, a story that makes sense and a solid online mode, fighting games don’t get any better and bigger than this.

The PlayStation 3 version is superior to its Xbox 360 counterpart because of the content. The PS3 version comes in with an extra character in Kratos and the game supports 3D, provided you own a 3DTV. Other than that there are no differences between the two versions. But if you are a gamer that has both a PS3 and 360 then I would suggest picking up the PS3 version and that is if you care about Kratos and you should, since he has some amazing finishers.

За 19 лет существования серия Mortal Kombat пережила многое. Нынешний MK — уже девятый по счету, и это не считая трех побочных экшенов и сборников с переизданиями. Некоторые эпизоды были откровенным выдаиванием прибыли из выдохшегося бренда. Однако новый Mortal Kombat совсем не такой. Он открыл серии второе дыхание, потому что... сделан с любовью, как это ни дико звучит в контексте развороченных черепов и разбросанных по арене внутренностей.

Mortal Kombat is going to do for this franchise what Street Fighter IV did for the Street Fighter franchise: resurrect it for the new generation and bring a new dawn in fighting game history. With Super Street Fighter IV, Marvel vs Capcom 3, Blaz Blue and now Mortal Kombat, it is a great time to be a fighting game fan. Netherealm Studios has managed to craft a game that not only brings a new level of polish and an insane amount of content, but also captures the feeling of the early arcade hits in the series. Two thumbs up!

The Mortal Kombat reboot is without a doubt a good one. The improved gameplay is the strongest point of the game and makes it accessible for everyone while keeping it difficult to master. The long list of special moves through the complete character roster makes the game a painful exercise for your memory, but also gives enough satisfation if you keep hanging onto the crown in King of the Hill without having to play over and over again with the same character. In short, Mortal Kombat is back and strikes a Fatality!

Una de las sagas de lucha más clásicas de todos los tiempos, Mortal Kombat, regresa a la actualidad con una entrega que supone un claro renacimiento para la misma. Sin duda estamos ante una de las mejores entregas de esta serie de la última década.

Overall, WB Games accomplished what it set out to do: bring the Mortal Kombat franchise to its roots, while also moving the franchise into modern gaming. While there are some minor unnecessary changes to get used to, such as the button layout, other new additions are more than welcome. If you are looking for a top contender in the fighting ring that can draw some good blood, then this is definitely the fighter for you.

If given the choice between this and most other games that have launched in the past 2 months, this game gets my nod. Longer game play than Portal 2, more fun than Marvel vs. Capcom, and has the nostalgia factor to really push it over the top.

Mortal Kombat supone el revivir de un clásico. El nuevo juego de NetherRealm Studios es fiel a la trilogía original, a la esencia de la serie y a lo que los fans podían esperar. Nos encontramos con un juego de lucha divertido y directo, que tiene en sus variados modos de juego, online y offline, uno de los pilares en los que se sustenta la violencia y sangre explícita de la saga. Mortal Kombat es más brutal y contundente que nunca, con fatalities espectaculares, momentos dolorosos y un aspecto general más que interesante por haber sabido adaptar ese universo a caballo entre el gore y la serie B a los tiempos actuales.

Beau, gore à souhait, nerveux, complet, cet épisode HD de Mortal Kombat en forme d'hommage aux premiers épisodes de la série est une franche réussite. Excessif en tout, le soft ne bascule pourtant jamais dans le ridicule et son gameplay très efficace réjouira aussi bien les passionnés de jeux de combat que les néophytes avides de sensations fortes.

Netheralm Software ha dado en el clavo con esta entrega y ha conseguido desarrollar el mejor Mortal Kombat que se ha hecho hasta la fecha. Un sistema de combate excelente que incluye combates estilo tag, modos de juego para aburrir que entre los que se encuentran el modo "Historia" y "La torre de los desafíos", una gran cantidad de extras y cómo no, la gran presencia de Kratos, el protagonista de God of War, como invitado de excepción entre el extenso plantel de personajes seleccionables. Señores, estamos ante uno de los grandes juegos de lucha de los últimos tiempos. Mortal Kombat ha vuelto.

Mortal Kombat is back with a vengeance, unapologetically savage, eminently playable and massive fun. It's the greatest love letter to MK fans that you could ever hope for. You'll be shouting “Moooooorttaaaaalllll Koooooommmmmbbbaaaaaattttt!!!!” in the streets like it's 1992, all over again.

Of course, if you're like the vast majority of the folks who wandered by my desk during the weeks that I played Mortal Kombat, you want to see one thing, and one thing only: utter carnage. And hey -- it's here in spades. Just try to remember that for once, Mortal Kombat is more than the sum of a few flying body parts.

Éternel élève qui a toujours souhaité s'imposer en maître, le challenger Mortal Kombat se permet avec ce reboot cinglant un retour sanglant sur le ring. Avec son gameplay qui fait la part belle aux coups spéciaux à mettre bout à bout pour former un combo mortel et son côté gore poussé ici à l'extrême par l'intermédiaire de prises « Xray » accompagnées de fatalités tonitruantes, MK ne réinvente pas son ancestrale formule mais dépoussière clairement tout le reste. Avec ses nombreuses arènes remasterisées des anciens épisodes et ses multiples secrets souvent très drôles, le titre de NetherRealm s'adresse avant tout aux fans, même si tous les efforts ont été faits pour accueillir les néophytes. Long, fluide, complet et bourré de bonnes idées comme d'éléments à débloquer, Mortal Kombat achève sa renaissance plus près des Cieux paradisiaques que des bas-fonds fumants de l'enfer. Ah, et un conseil pour conclure, ne restez pas trop longtemps dans la krypte, sinon...

Mortal Kombat profitiert deutlich davon, dass sich die Entwickler gesagt haben »Och, jetzt machen wir quasi ein verbessertes Remake des zweiten Teils, den hatten irgendwie alle gern!« Das Resultat ist ein 3D-Prügler, der sich angenehm zweidimensional spielt und ohne Ballast wie Kartrennen, Schachvariationen oder Selbstschraub-Fatalities auskommt. Dafür aber auch einen Haufen Altlasten mit sich bringt: Allen voran die nach wie vor leicht träge Steuerung, die sich nie so präzise und auf den Punkt genau wie bei Super Street Fighter 4, BlazBlue oder Tekken 6 anfühlt - von den hüftsteifen Umfaller-Animationen ganz zu schweigen. Immerhin ist die Brutalität des ganzen wieder ganz die alte; dieser Punkt wird auch um die teilweise sehr garstigen X-Ray-Manöver erweitert, auch wenn man sich an ihnen schnell satt sieht - auch und gerade, weil sie viel zu einfach auszulösen sind.

PlayStation 3Gamekult (Apr 22, 2011)
Respectueux de l'héritage et des dieux anciens, NetherRealm Studios s'empare de tous les ingrédients qui ont fait le succès de Mortal Kombat, pour donner à cet épisode le goût du sang. Une saveur familière, perdue au fil des ans et qui renaît avec brio, presque 20 ans après le premier épisode. Unique sur le fond comme sur la forme, ce reboot victorieux insiste crânement sur les vieux points forts de la saga, et ça marche. Mortal Kombat n'est peut-être pas le jeu qui remisera SSFIV ou Blazblue CS au fond du placard, mais il sait où il va et assume sa différence. Ni monument de technicité, ni monstre de simplicité, il suit son propre sillon, abreuvé d'hémoglobine impure. Par conséquent, les amateurs de baston 2D feraient bien de lui laisser sa chance, il la mérite amplement.

Samtidigt, med nostalgikänslorna effektivt dödade av obalans och märklig svårighetsgrad, är Mortal Kombat i grunden inget spel som på något sätt kan konkurrera med den briljans som framförallt Super Street Fighter IV innehåller. Netherrealm Studios senaste skapelse är proppat av urskön vulgo-design, skrattframkallande övervåld, köttiga spellägen och klassiska ninjor. Det är roligt och lättsamt för stunden, men fortfarande inget fightingspel som ens nästan kan slåss mot genrens främsta.

The fact that, in harking back to earlier days, the game feels stuck in the past, the fact the fighting system really isn't deep compared to other modern-day brawlers, the fact the gore is little more than a sideshow and the fact that most of the fan service appeals to fans who have grown up a great deal since the Nineties throws up numerous reasons to criticise, however.
