Gameplay (Benelux) (Dec, 1995)
Mortal Kombat 3 is zeker een aanrader voor wie van zuivere arcade houdt, met een ziekelijke dosis humor. Op een bescheiden PC en voor een zachte prijs haal je het ultieme spel in je woonkamer. Uren plezier gegarandeerd zonder al te veel kopzorgen. Zelfs al beheers je niet al de 'special moves' , dan nog kan je doorstoten naar de top van het toernooi. Wil je echt het beste vechtspel, werp dan alle andere spelen buiten en probeer MK3 eens als je durft...
Joystick (French) (Dec, 1995)
Le meilleur épisode de la série, et de loin, grâce à une réalisation sans faille... mais il demeure à mon sens un peu moins bien que Primal Rage
Score (Nov, 1995)
Velice kvalitní pokračování "mlátiček" Mortal Kombat 1 a 2, které zaručeně zaujme všechny dosavadní fanoušky těchto her. První bojová hra, která podporuje hru více hráčů po síti.
So how does MORTAL KOMBAT 3 compare to the new generation of fighting games, like VIRTUA FIGHTER 2, FX FIGHTER, et al? Very favorably, I would argue. VIRTUA FIGHTER is a tremendous game, with incredible fight action that not even this game can match. But there's something about MORTAL KOMBAT (perhaps its long history) that makes it more emotionally compelling to me. And, of course, neither of the VIRTUA FIGHTER versions has made it to the PC. FX FIGHTER, it's PC offspring (by GTE Entertainment) is very good, but I don't think it's up there with this title. MK3, for a two-dimensional game, has more depth (graphically and strategically) than FX FIGHTER.
High Score (Feb, 1996)
Riktigt bra fightingspel finns det inte gott om till PC, och igentligen har inte mycket hänt sedan Way of the Exploding Fist på gamla C64. Mortal Kombat 3 är ett spel som inte överraskar på något sätt, men det är ändå ett riktigt trevligt och blodigt spel.
Entertainment Weekly (Nov 24, 1995)
Yet turn off the blood and violent animations using MK3's option menu, and you'll begin to appreciate its foundations: slick digitized graphics, responsive game play, and a story line — it's you against a battalion of warriors as you try to rid the Earth of an alien emperor who has subjugated most of the human race — that adds another dimension to all of the fun.
