Mortal Kombat
What can we say about Mortal Kombat that you don't already know? This series initiated a new era in
2-D fighting games, with an unmatched level of blood and more-or-less realistic violence. An unprecedented, massive dose of complicated button-tapping techniques, topped off by the unforgettable Fatalities, soon joined in prestige by Friendships, Babalities, and then Animalities. With such of a variety of ways to dismember and/or humiliate your opponent, it's no wonder people all over the world, of all ages, quickly fell in love with these gory fighters, and fell hard. With titles for the Super Nintendo, Sega Genesis, Game Boy, and all the way up through current gaming consoles, the Mortal Kombat series continues on to this day.

For ages it was a tournament of honor and glory. Noble warriors from around the world we invited to take part, each seeking to win the title of Grand Champion.

But that was a long time ago... Before the tournament was corrupted by the evil demon Shang Tsung, a warrior who took not only the lives of his opponents, but their very souls...

With the aid of his pupil, Goro, a hideous half-human dragon, Tsung began a domination of the contest which has lasted for centuries. Today, 500 years later, the contest begins anew as warriors once again gather to partake in Mortal Kombat.

Let The Tournament Begin!

--From the Super Nintendo Mortal Kombat instruction manual.

The story isn't very important, but the fighting is. You start with the main menu that lets you choose between Tournament and Options. Tournament gets you to the action, and Options lets you set up the game to your liking. After selecting Tournament, you get to select between seven great fighters: Johnny Cage, Kano, Raiden, Liu Kang, Scorpion, Sub-Zero, and Sonya. The game goes through the ladder from a random playable character to the all-powerful Shang Tsung.

Mortal Kombat is a decent game that I really enjoyed, but I'm improving since the first time I played. The bad thing about it is that the blood was replaced with sweat because Nintendo used to have a policy that only allowed "family-friendly" games. The Genesis and arcade versions have blood in them. Fortunately, when the ESRB ratings started, all versions of MK2 and later have blood in them.

What can I say about MK2? If you don't know this game then you haven't been around much, eh. Old fashioned 2-D fighting goodness, with lots of blood and ripping your opponent to bits.

This is just a great game. Heaps of fun. Get your violence fix without actually hurting yourself or anything else. Lots of characters with gobs of special moves. Infinite replay value. Even if you're one of those people who can beat the computer with both hands tied behind your back, it's still fun. Oh, and if you actually don't use your hands you get to do Friendships and Babalities.

Mortal Kombat 2 (Gameboy)
500 years ago, the shapeshifter Shang Tsung was banished from the Outworld to the Mother Realm (Earth) for his crimes. There, with the aid of his pupil Goro, a hideous half-human dragon, he was to atone for his crimes by unbalancing the furies of the realm, allowing his master Shao Kahn and his minions to enter the dominion and rule forever.

He was defeated.

He returned to the Outworld a failure, facing execution at the hands of Shao Kahn, supreme ruler of the Outworld, the Astral Planes of Shokan and the surrounding kingdoms. With the apparent demise of Goro, his fate seemed sealed. But Tsung told Kahn of his plan for revenge, a plot so evil and twisted even Kahn was persuaded to grant him one final opportunity to redeem himself. He cleverly lured his adversaries to the bizarre Outworld where they would face a new challenge-- a tournament hosted by Shao Kahn himself.

Today, The Tournament Begins...
Again!

--from the Game Boy Mortal Kombat 2 instruction manual

Many centuries ago, a shape-shifter named Shang Tsung was banished to Earth. With the aid of the juggernaut Goro, he created the most fierce tournament on Earth. After being defeated by Liu Kang, he returned to the Outworld... a realm very different from Earth. He convinced his master, Shao Kahn, that he should not be executed. Shao Kahn restored his youth and created his own tournament. Thus, the next Mortal Kombat was born.

Mortal Kombat 2 is known to be the best Mortal Kombat game ever. No doubt. It isn't too basic like the prequel nor does it mess up the story too much like the sequels. Like other games of that era, it was ported to the Game Boy. Although it cut down on many things, it's still not a bad game to have on the go.

--From the Super Nintendo Mortal Kombat 2 instruction manual.

After his defeat in the first tournament, Shang Tsung crawls back to his master, Shao Kahn, and begs for his life. Shang Tsung tells his master of a new plan to take over Earth realm. Shao Kahn returns Shang Tsung's youth and calls forth to the realms to have another tournament, this time in Outworld. Now all the warriors gather and get ready to fight for their homes. Now it is time, once again, for MORTAL KOMBAT!!! (cue techno music)

Mortal Kombat 2 is the sensational sequel to the famous fighting game, with realistic graphics and fighting styles. They looked great on the SNES and every other console these games appeared on. Mortal Kombat was the first game to use real actors as the characters rather then using 8 or 16 bit graphics. The music in this game keeps your heart pumping and ready to fight. This game is highly popular and highly recommended for the fan of the fighting game.

After being defeated more times than he would like, the Emperor of Outworld, Shao Kahn, puts a 10,000 year old plan into effect. Sending Shang Tsung to Earthrealm to resurrect his dead queen, Sindal, the emperor then merges Earthrealm with Outworld to retrieve her. Thousands of people are killed instantly, except for those few souls that Raiden protects to fight to save Earthrealm. Now it is up to these few warriors to save their once beloved planet. Good Luck!

Mortal Kombat 3 is, as you guessed, the third installment of the Mortal Kombat series. The game is as fun as its two predecessors, with the same realistic graphics and heart pumping music. This version, however, was subject to wide-spread criticism due to the fighting stages not being set in a fantasy realm like the last games, and also due to the lack of several of the classic characters such as Scorpion and Kitana. The game, however, is just as entertaining as the last two, and in my opinion features more realistic graphics and better music.

Personally I am one of the biggest Mortal Kombat fans ever and this game was a great addition to the series. Ultimate Mortal Kombat 3 was just an add on to Mortal Kombat 3, but it did make it a lot better. The creators added a few more characters and some new levels. UMK3 had a variety of play modes, and it had good graphics compared to other Mortal Kombat games. Again the game was short like its past games but length did not matter for this game because it was so fun. UMK3 contained a lot of new fatalities, and moves. 7/10 stars

THERE IS NO KNOWLEDGE THAT IS NOT POWER...

"You have been chosen to represent Earth in Mortal Kombat. Be warned. For although your souls are safe from Shao Kahn's evil: your lives are not. I can no longer interfere, as your Earth is now ruled by the Outworld gods."

...These are the words of Rayden

The Shaolin Tournament for Martial Arts, better known as Mortal Kombat was, for countless ages, a noble institution that tested the metal of the very best Warriors. Years ago, the Tournament was corrupted by the evil sorcerer Shang Tsung who dared to take not only the lives of his opponents, but their very souls. Eventually, it became known that Shang Tsung was acting at the behest of his diabolical master Shao Kahn, Emperor of the Outworld, who planned to claim all the souls on earth. The Champions of Earth: Liu Kang, Kung Lao, their Ancestors and others have, so far, thwarted this plan. For centuries Earth has used Mortal Kombat to defend itself against the Outworld's Emperor, Shao Kahn.

Frustrated by failed attempts to take Earth through Tournament battle, Kahn enacts a plan which began 10,000 years ago. During that time Shao Kahn had a Queen named Sindel and her early death was unexpected. Kahn's Shadow Priests, led by Shang Tsung, made it possible for Sindel's spirit to someday be reborn: not on the Outworld, but on the Earth Realm itself.

This evil act gives Shao Kahn the power to step through the dimensional gates and reclaim his Queen, thus enabling him to finally seize the Earth Realm.

Upon breaching the portal into Earth, Shao Kahn slowly transforms the planet into a part of the Outworld. He strips the Earth of all human life-claiming every soul as his own. But there are souls which Kahn cannot take. These souls belong to the Warriors chosen to represent Earth in a new Mortal Kombat. The remaining humans are scattered throughout the planet. Shao Kahn sends an army of fierce Outworld Warriors to find and eliminate them. Some of Earth's Warriors survive the attacks. Most do not. The remaining few hold the one chance at saving all of human kind.

--From the Super Nintendo Mortal Kombat 3: Ultimate instruction manual.

Another update of the classic fighter series. This edition features even more new characters, moves, Kombos, game modes, and Kombat Kodes.
