Beat'em ups have never been a type of game thats managed to grip my attention for long periods of time but i've always been a fan of the Mortal Kombat series and as there has been very little decent releases. I picked it up expecting an upto date version of the old MK and this is exactly that, which is simply genius.
Theres everything that made the old MK's great and the addition of a story mode has taken it to another level. The story mode is original and keeps you glued, challenge tower haves you pulling your hair out while still enjoying it, all the characters are in there plus a few new ones (not exactly new but cyber sub zero and human cyrax ect), stages are creapy and gory, fatalities are nice and gory (even though sometimes coming across a bit cartoony to me, which is my only minor issue), and there seems to be pleanty of unlockables with DLC to come.
I can't wait until i can try online when Sony finally sort there act out. Best fighting game ever, nothing comes close to it. Can't wait for next one which the story mode i this one has paved the way for.
