About this game

Content Rating: Mature


After centuries of Mortal Kombat, Emperor Shao Kahn has finally defeated Raiden and his allies. Faced with extinction, Raiden has one last chance to save Earthrealm. To undo the Emperor's victory, he must strike Shao Kahn where he is vulnerable...the Past.

Driven by an all new graphics engine, the fan favorite series is back and presented in more gory detail than ever before. Mortal Kombat (known as Mortal Kombat 9 by the fans) introduces a number of game-play features including tag team and the deepest story mode of any fighting game. Players can choose from an extensive lineup of the game's iconic warriors and challenge their friends in traditional 1 vs. 1 matches, or take on several new game modes.

Mortal Kombat is back in full gory glory. This installment serves as the ultimate throwback for die-hard fans like myself, while still being accessible and interesting enough to lure new gamers. Unlike most fighters, there are hours and hours of single-player, plenty of replay value, and some unique twists to online multiplayer to help make it stand out among the rest. Series staple secrets are buried within the game and DLC characters are planned to help to hold your attention for a very long time.

A great attention to detail is applied to the backgrounds, characters, and making the fatalities cringe-worthy spectacles. An almost overwhelming amount of great content backs the rock-solid gameplay. This is the best Mortal Kombat yet. It didn’t blow my mind to the degree that Mortal Kombat 2 and 3 did back in the day, but when it comes down to the gameplay and longevity tied to it, this new entry towers above its 2D lineage.

Over the past two weeks, I've spent perhaps as much time playing the new Mortal Kombat as I did playing the original titles in the arcade and on consoles. The fact that I still haven't unlocked everything, and that I'm not bored of the game's ruthless fighting mechanics and sadistic finishers, is a testament to the game's value. Mortal Kombat doesn't redefine the franchise, but by sticking to what it does best and piling on the content, it has become a must-have for fans and easily establishes itself as the best in the series.
