Mortal Kombat Mythologies: Sub-Zero


n64gm167 - Developed by Avalanche Software LLC and Published by Midway, "Mortal Kombat Mythologies Sub Zero" was released for the Nintendo 64 (N64) Entertainment System on October 1, 1997. Sub Zero is a unique Side-Scrolling platformer in that it's the first game in the Mortal Kombat series developed exclusively for the home systems. This is a story-driven fighting game that chronicles a series of events that occurred prior to Mortal Kombat 1, and casts you in the character of the most notorious and famed fighter, Sub-Zero. The game scenario is the feared assassin Lin Kuei warrior (Sub Zero) is contracted by the sorcerer Shao, to retrieve the important hidden map of elements. But Quan Chi tricks Sub Zero into getting a medallion and awakening the demonic Shinnok (from Mortal Kombat 4). So now you must pursue Quan Chi hoping you get to Shinnok before him. You will be traversing through hazardous levels and different lands, and in the process learn the backgrounds of characters like Scorpion as you discover the betrayal and deceit that has taken place against you. You will do battle with both digitized and polygonal enemies. This game has a definite RPG feel with the way you gain experience and the "inventory," "use," and "turn around" buttons. There are 30 distinct enemies to defeat in order to earn experience points and learn new special moves. In your quest you will come across different traps as well as puzzles that you will have to overcome in order to progress. There are also many power-ups that can be picked up to help you in your quest. The graphics are average or slightly above I would say, but have large characters, good backgrounds and feature excellent cut-scenes that highlight the action. The game control and play is also average (similar to the 2D Mortal Kombat fighting games), but the music and sound effects in Mortal Kombat Mythologies: Sub-Zero are quite good (if not too low) with the wind blowing when Sub-Zero is on ledges giving appropriate ambience. The music is mostly inspiring and appropriate. There are eight side-scrolling levels of fighting and you can acquire and combine an assortment of items to restore your health, have more strength, become invisible and more. Mortal Kombat Mythologies: Sub-Zero is not the best Mortal Kombat game, but it is s good fighting game. Pre-owned - Includes Game Only, no manual or instructions are included. Rarity Rating "C" - Mortal Kombat Mythologies: Sub-Zero game review by "Prince" NES Gamer.
