Unfortanately, it ISNT the ultimate fighting game.....

The Good

The graphics were decent (for the snes) and, although is incredibly similar to those of MK3 (original) it is still a good break. Another great thing about this game is the wide array of characters. There are over 20 characters to choose from, and each have their own special moves and tricks. Also there are 2 hidden characters, which can be unlocked.

The Bad

Although there are a lot of characters, a bad thing was that that most of them were just the same base model altered with separate special moves. By base model I mean that sub zero(classic) , rain, ermac, human smoke, scorpion and noob saibot are the same model, except with different special attacks. I dont really consider that to be 6 different characters, because they move and look the exact same. Also like this are Kitana and Mileena, and Cyrax, Sektor and Smoke(robot). They could have made it better by making different models for each character.

The Bottom Line

Still, UMK3 was a fun game to play, and although lacking a good startup screen, it was decent and earning of a good rating. I give it a ( 3 / 5 ) .
