Take on the role of Mortal Kombat® character Jax, as you descend into the realm of Mortal Kombat in search of arch- villain, Kano. As you make your way through the game, you will delve deeper into one of the most interesting and enigmatic stories in the Mortal Kombat universe. Battle your way through complex 3D levels. Destroy your enemies using never-before-seen special moves and combos, all leading to an unforeseen climactic ending.
Originally, Special Forces would allow players to choose between Jax and Sonya or they can play it together like Final Fight. However this was dropped after John Tobias and a few key members left Midway to form Studio Gigante.
