Mortal Kombat


SGM0036 - Developed by Midway and Published by Acclaim Entertainment, Inc., "Mortal Kombat" was released for the Super Nintendo Entertainment System in September of 1993. This is a port of the super classic coin operated arcade game that revolutionized arena-style, hand-to-hand combat. And because Nintendo was going through a Family Friendly phase, it is without a lot of the blood and gore of the Arcade version. Mortal Kombat is a one on one, side scrolling action fighting game. There are eight characters for you to choose to fight as, each having a variety of special defenses, moves, kicks and punches. As your opponents faces their second of three losses in a round, you are permitted to perform a "Fatality" or humiliating finishing move on them. And even though the fatalities are toned down for the SNES, there was introduced some "new" fatalities that are unique to the Super Nintendo Entertainment System. Perform the finishing move and you will then advance to the next stage. The scenario of Mortal Kombat is that, Raiden (the protector of the Earth Realm) comes to Shang Tsung's mysterious island to enter a ancient Shaolin championship fighting tournament that is held every fifty years. And he brings six world class fighters to join him in the arena to defeat the elderly sorcerer by the name of Shang Tsung. Besides Raiden there is Sub-Zero the Lin Kuei warrior, Liu Kang the Shaolin warrior, Sonya Blade the Special Forces operative, scorpion the undead, Thug Kano the mercenary and Johnny Cage. The control is good, with only a minuscule delay in reaction, and the gameplay is part of what made this such a popular game. The graphics of this game were excellent, top notch for the time giving the game a great atmosphere. The sound is simply awesome. Mortal Kombat on SNES is very underrated and raised the bar for all other one on one fighting games. Mortal Kombat is also known as "MK" Pre-owned - Includes Game Only - ESRB Rating N/A (Animated Violence) - Rarity Rating C- Review by "NES Gamer".
