Mortal Kombat has been such a huge success over the years, that it was all but certain that this version would do good.  Mortal Kombat has always been a game of incredible concentration and skill.....or button mashing.  This means that the campaign can be incredibly hard if you're not familiar with the controls.  But Mortal Kombat has never just been about beating the crap out of your enemies in the campaign.  Sometimes you actually want to get killed by your opponent just so that you can see one of the sweet new death animations they have.  They zoom in on your bones and showcase all of the splintering and cracking as your enemy finishes you off.

The campaign is not the only feature that Mortal Kombat is offering to players.  The new tournament based multiplayer game is something that every player, novice or expert, can thouroughly enjoy.  You work your way up the ladder by defeating all enemies that come in your way until you hit the top for your final battle.

All in all, Mortal Kombat is an exceptional game that should be played by anyone that can get their hands on it.  It is definitely a new milestone in the 2D fighting genre!
