Synopsis


For centuries, competitors in the Mortal Kombat Tournament have laid waste to their enemies as they attempted to be declared the winner. In the end, it was Emperor Shao Kahn that ruthlessly defeated Raiden and his allies. Unwilling to sit idly by, Raiden is determined to somehow defeat the Emperor and undo his victory. Raiden must go to a place where the Emperor is most vulnerable, a place where it is never too late for second chances. Raiden must go to the past.

    Story Another point of surprise for me here. Story mode actually feels like such. You go through a Mortal Combat Tournament and its plot twists while playing as all of the "good guys" and some "bad guys turned good". The story itself was enjoyable, slightly unpredictable (less so the more familiar you are with MK) and the cut scenes alone are about 2 hours long. Even though there's no "choice" or "multiple endings" it still makes you want to replay it several times, and the currency rewards (to unlock extra content) is quite substantial in story mode. Game play Plays like MK but better! The feeling is all there and you will easily remember the game you're playing but everything runs smoothly, the controls are very responsive and all of the "cool moves" are there, along with Fatalities, Stage Fatalities and Baby Finishers. Mini games like Test your Might/Sight/Strike/Luck are addictive and fun. Challenge Tower mode offers you 300 challenges, often unfair and messed up, like fighting without your head (disabled head moves of course…poor Jung Lao…), to fighting upside down, or having a slot machine decide randomly what will be disabled for that match…All of which will give you a sense of accomplishment; and if the challenges are too hard for you, you can "buy them out" with game currency and skip the challenge altogether. Use the game currency in the Krypt to buy new outfits, concept art and new fatalities for your characters. View all you unlocked in the Nether realm (yes, they love their K's….) Characters You get the entire roster, you get to see what they're about and what they fight for in Story mode and you will even get some insight into them with the individual endings in Ladder Mode; not very deep unless the ending is about them falling into a pit, but of a higher quality than expected from a MK game. Graphics/Settings I was actually surprised by the graphical quality of this title. The blend of 2D and 3D was very well accomplished. It stays true to its roots but it feels updated and polished. Sound Pretty decent, mostly what you've been used to hearing at the latest MK games. Mostly background music, it doesn't stand out but it will not annoy you either. Conclusion Mortal Combat Complete Edition is a great game overall and this coming from someone who has been a loyal MK fan. The game looks great, plays great, there's lots of characters to choose from and lots to do. If you're a fighting game fan I would recommend you get this one.

    A Kolossally kool game

    Mortal Kombat has rejoined the ranks of great fighting games. I was koncerned about the future of this series, but those koncerns evaporated when I played this game. The action is fast-paced, brutal and exciting, the graphics are outstanding and look great in HD and the kontrols are easy enough to pick up, you'll be executing krazy kombos and brutal fatalities before you know it. Rather than trying to make this into a 3D fighter, Netherrealm has made it into a top notch 2D fighter in 3D environments. The gameplay harkens bact to the klassic Mortal Kombat II and Mortal Kombat 3, which were the best games in the series up until this one. There are lots of game modes, from one-on-one and tag team fighting to various mini-games. There is even a story mode which is a dramatic retelling of the events of the original Mortal Kombat trilogy. In the story, Raiden recieves a message from his future self that evil warlord Shao Khan must not succede or the Earthrealm is doomed. there are twists and turns that give this mode the feel of an interactive movie. The great kharacters from the original klassics are back. The kharacter designs are striking and distinctive. From terrifying kombatant like Baraka and Quan Chi, to heroes like Liu Kang and Johnny Cage and sexy female fighters like Jade and Sonya Blade. If you have a favorite kharacter from MK, chances are he or she (or it) is in this game. This is a great game, but not for family entertainment. Mortal Kombat is graphically violent. there is a lot of blood and gore and some particularly graphic finishing moves. For players 17 and older, it's a great game but it is not recommended for children. Mortal Kombat warrants its M rating. The PS 3 version includes Kratos from 'God of War'. For brutal 2D fighting, Mortal Kombat kan't be beat. This game is a kut above the rest

    Awesome version of a 90s classic

    This game is a lot of fun, especially for those of us who grew up with MK in the 90s. Game comes with a "challenge tower" that has around 400 challenges if I remember correctly. There's a story mode which is really cool.. Cutscenes blend seamlessly into fights. Of course there is also the classic arcade mode. Lots of unlockables and extras, and all of the characters you know and love from the MK series are here. The game also has online features but I haven't used those enough to comment on them. As for downsides, I feel like the 2D-style fighting might not be enjoyable for some. The graphics are all 3D but I call it 2D-style because there's no side-stepping or anything like that. For fans of classic MK it feels right but those who didn't grow up with it may feel like it's lacking. Also the game can be pretty cheap sometimes, but what fighting game isn't at least occasionally? Definitely a great buy for MK fans, or fans of fighting games in general if you don't mind the 2D-style fighting.

    A True Komplete Edition

    I recently got this game I've been playing it straight four about 3 or 4 hours with each and every character but my favorite one is the razor gloved boogeyman himself "Freddy Kruger", I mean he has some killer moves in the game and his fatality is the easiest to perform over and over again for some great practice and laughs if you have a twisted sense of humor. When it comes to the term "Komplete Edition" this game lives up to it's name and title, it has everything to make this one a worth buy if you're into fighting games in general. And on a personal note"I wish they'd put Jason Voorhees in the game too but with our luck he may become a DLC instead for the next Mortal Kombat"

    For everything you're getting -- an excellent and exceptionally nostalgic fighting experience with DLCs included -- at a valuable price, Mortal Kombat: Komplete Edition has to be one of the easiest purchases in your collection. It's not a special edition as much as it is a thoughtful, tailor made buy for anyone who hasn't already purchased the game or the DLCs. For casuals or traditional kombatants, no one could go wrong with it, it's the best in the franchise.

    MK Komplete Edition is a powerful package. From the story mode, challenge tower and various versus options this is THE MK game to own. The fighting mechanics are extremely balanced and the roster of fighters to choose from is top notch. Komplete Edition also comes with all the DLC characters and costumes. If you haven't picked this up already, what are you waiting for?

    I owned this game when it first came out and had a ton of fun. A few months later I sold it. Fast forward 4 years later and i decided to get back on the MK train. This is a great single player experience. The ladder matches, tower matches and story are well done. After owning Injustice i am enjoying MK even more. Highly recommended.

    I mainly got this for my 17 year old nephew , as I am not an avid gamer but I have always enjoyed Mortal Kombat . I like that it is the complete edition and features characters such as Freddy Krueger and others. They have good visuals and no real complaints so far . I got it on sale for under $15 , so I'm very happy with the purchase
