Hobby Consolas (Jan, 1997)
Si te gusta la lucha más dura y no tienes «MK3», no dudes en hacerte con este nuevo episodio del torneo OutWorld. Si, por el contrario, disfrutas ya de otras entregas y no eres un incondicional de la saga, puede que no encuentres este título tan irresistible: a pesar de que este cartucho es el mejor de la serie, el más completo, (mayor número de luchadores y de golpes), peca de falta de originalidad.
Mean Machines (Mar, 1997)
A fitting finale for the 16 bit Mortal Kombat series: the final word in Megadrive 2D beat 'em ups. 26 fighters, gallons of blood and finishing moves galore.

In Conclusion, Ultimate Mortal Kombat 3 is a decent enough game. It brings a lot to the table from Mortal Kombat II, and it upgrades the game in some spots, especially combos and character selection. I actually would say that this game does offer enough of an upgrade to actually warrant a purchase, even if you already have Mortal Kombat 3.
The Video Game Critic (Oct 31, 2009)
The fighting engine has been tweaked a bit and there are new fatalities, so the underlying fighting engine is solid. The game certainly plays well. Another purported new "feature" are the multi-player modes that support four or eight players. Who in the hell asked for that? Nobody, but it sure was easy to program! UMK3 also features a few new backgrounds, but nothing worth writing home about. Clearly Midway was trying to squeeze as much as they could out of the series for one last 16-bit incarnation, but I doubt if gamers turned off by MK3 would even bother with this.
