Mortal Kombat: Armageddon

I'm going to make it really simple:

Kreate a Fatality = lame button pressing combinations and no charachter unique fatalities

Endings = your charachter doing a kata with a voiceover telling a terrible non-canon story, not resolving anything

Konquest = MK: Shaolin Monks dumbed down

A lot of other bad things, but I don't want to get into it on the account of I'm depressed that I wasted my money on a piece of crap like this.

I saw a commercial pimping this last night and just looks like a 3D remix of Trilogy. There's this picture though showing all the characters in it though.

Agreed. I still play MK3 from time to time and MK: Trilogy is my favorite one. I stopped paying attention after 4, which sucked. It was too easy for me.

I'm also shocked this is the seventh game.
Peace.

If you liked the last two you'll like this one. I have it and it's not as bad as Travis makes it sound.

People liked the last two?


Just kidding, though I've never really been a fan of MK.

I don't know what game you guys are playing, but I know I'm enjoying MKA. Of course it's nothing like the old school ones (which are some of my favorite games, period, especially MK2), but at least I wasn't expecting that. I'm having a lot of fun with the Konquest mode. Who cares if it's a little like Shaolin Monks? I loved that game, too (especially because of its inclusion of 2-player co-op, something sorely missing from games these days). The Kreate-a-Fighter mode looks fun, too, as does the Motor Kombat, although I haven't tried them yet. The 3-D MK fighting system isn't my favorite, but it's tolerable. They did cut down on the number of styles per character, which I thought were a little too much in the last two games. Overall, I'm having fun with a game that packs a lot into one disc (or two, if you got the premium edition). Who cares if it's not perfect? It's better than the last two 3-D MKs by far. The point should be that it's fun, which I think it is.

But then again, I'm a MK fan from way back, so maybe I'm just biased. Wink

Seven games (not counting the MANY sides games, like Shaolin Monks)? Man I stopped caring after the 3rd one. Although the neat little extra modes look fun though.
