Zoals ik in het vorig nummer al liet weten: MK4 is de shit. De gameplay, de graphics, de characters, de moves, het is allemaal van een superieure kwaliteit. Of je nou tegen elkaar, de computer of in teambattles aan het slachten bent, het spel gaat geen seconde vervelen. MK4 is absoluut een van de betere fighting-games van de afgelopen tijd.

This one is a winner folks. After falling into somewhat of the doldrums there for a while, the Mortal Kombat series can once again hold its head high...get it lopped off...and then hold it up high again. All of the good stuff from the previous MK games is intact, tweaked and finely tuned to perfection in this MK4. The graphics have made the move to polygons and they work wonderfully and the sound effects and music, while not notably changed from previous MK's, is still solid and effective. Even if you already have all the other MK games in your library, this one is the best in its stable and worth a look see.
If you haven't liked any of the previous MK titles, MK4 probably won't win you over. But this is a good translation of a good arcade title, and fans of the arcade version won't be disappointed. However, if you're looking for some smoother graphics, and you own an N64, you may want to pick up that version instead.

Conclusion : MK4 n'est pas indispensable sur Playstation, hormis pour les inconditionnels de la série, mais il constitue sur N64 un bon investissement, en attendant mieux...
In the end, Mortal Kombat 4 isn't the most amazing game in the fighting market, but it's a great new leap for Midway, and Eurocom has outdone itself in creating the port of its career. And Mortal Kombat 4, in this gamers eyes, is the best of the series.
On the Final note although MK4 isn't a complete port from arcade. Midway made the right decision to save framerate, involving increased gameplay. The Sounds and Music are the pride and joy, and whipping the crap out of some one with weapons rocks. Putting the moves in the game are a big plus and have fun finding those secret characters. MK4 gets my vote, good game.

MK4 est donc un jeu correct, plus agréable que ses prédécesseurs, mais qui ne peut rivaliser avec ses adversaires directs : Tekken 3, Dead or Alive, Tobal 2,...

In essence, this is the Mortal Kombat you have played before. If you didn't like it before, you won't like it now. The gameplay mechanics are identical to all of the previous Mortal Kombat games. Sure, it isn't new, but it still manages to be fun.
The Video Game Critic
It didn't win me over in a big way, but Mortal Kombat 4 is still a respectable fighter. Unfortunately, it failed to reinvigorate the franchise, and most people wrote it off as a 3D rehash. On a final note, the excellent live-action intro makes me yearn for a new Mortal Kombat movie - bring it on!
Joystick (French)
Et puis le gameplay est assez bourrin, ce qui rend le titre accessible mais inintéressant à jouer. Ajoutez à cela un commentaire en temps réel de Satan himself et des Fatalités très difficiles à sortir, et vous obtenez le soft de combat le plus ringard de tous les temps !
Midway se adentra en el universo de las tres dimensiones para modernizar su alicaída saga, entrando en competencia directa con clásicos de Namco como Tekken o Soul Blade
Game Chronicles
If you enjoy fighting games, are a MK fanatic, or you are going broke spending all you quarters at the arcade, then this is certainly a title you will want to buy. Which version you get would only be determined by which system you own, but if you have both then I have to recommend the Nintendo version. It is almost a "flawless victory."

Trots justeringarna kan Mortal Kombat inte på allvar mäta sig med tungviktare som Tekken 3.
