After so many years of lackluster games, it is so good to have a Mortal Kombat game worth playing again. Now, I've never been the biggest fan of the series, I know next to nothing of the mythos, only casually played the games, and never even owned any of them, even this one which is a friend's copy. But none of that matters, because this game is just fun to play. As a fighting game, it's not super deep, but the game flows pretty well and fights between friends are a lot of fun. You won't be seeing this game on the tournament circuit any time soon, but it doesn't need to be, as it's far more accessible as a result, making it a great party game.
