The last Mortal Kombat game I played was Mortal Kombat Trilogy on the PS1. After that the series got too stupid and just wasn't as fun after the jump to 3D. That all changed with this new uber- violent masterpiece. I was so excited for this game, i actually rode my bike five miles to go and get it. It was well worth the wait. The game is nearly perfect with great graphics, and seamless controls. The voice acting is even pretty good, and the game made me remember just why I thought Noob Saibot, Smoke, and Scorpion were so awesome in Trilogy. The game even made the previously lame character Jade shine, she is now one of my favorites. The only reason I didn't give the game a 10 is because i noticed balancing issues with a certain red ninja and Shao Kahn is so unfair. I will be playing this game for many months to come.
