Sorry Compilation of a Great Fighting Genre

The Good


The Bad

I liked the original MK, MK2 was awesome, and MK3 was horrible, these three games combined make up the disappointing MK Trilogy. It would have been an awesome game if they gave you the option to play the three games separately in there entirety, instead they bunched them up and left out several aspects from each MK game. There are only a couple of character outfits from the original MK and MK2 games, and some of the backgrounds from the previous two versions were left out as well. The new aggressor mode and brutalities are uncreative and not amusing at all. The brutality finisher is nothing more than one combo repeated over and over, faster and faster until the player explodes after an uppercut. This is stupid.

The Bottom Line

This could have been one of the best games of all-time, but the makers carelessly threw together three good games to make this mess. Almost everything from the three MK versions are in Trilogy, but almost just isn't good enough, like this crummy excuse of a compilation.
