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!

Calm Down Tom
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.

We Got This Covered
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!

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. 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.

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!

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.

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.

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.

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.

Serienfans haben Grund zur Freude: Das neue Mortal Kombat ist spielerisch erneut primitiv und doch der beste Teil, den es je gab.

NetherRealm Studios (en bedenker Ed Boon) blijven trouw aan de roots van de reeks en leveren een prima vechtspel af, zij het wel vooral voor de al wat ervaren Mortal Kombat-fans.

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.

Gamereactor (Sweden)
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.
