It seemed like a good idea. Take all three and a half Mortal Kombat games and cram them into one. And at its heart, it was. In effect though, it ended up something else entirely.

There are some nice things about Mortal Kombat Trilogy, though. Even though it probably doesn't matter which one you use in the long run, there is a wealth of characters to choose from. Also, there are some classic levels to be seen in this game, as well as some new ones. And in this respect, it does a good job of blending all three Mortal Kombat games together. But the fact of the matter is that this series has failed to evolve. The digitized fighters still animate badly, the backgrounds look the same as they always have, the AI is as cheap as ever and the lack of strategy is still persistent. So the bottom line is that if you like Mortal Kombat, you will get a kick out of Mortal Kombat Trilogy. But to those who value decent gameplay and strategy over a poorly animated and unbalanced gorefest, look elsewhere.
