Review: Mortal Kombat 1
Screenshots: 1 - 2 - 3 - 4 - 5 -
Reviewer: Dark-Scorpion
Date: 27/07/2001

The first Mortal Kombat game, Mortal Kombat I, has been released on PC, Nintendo Game Boy, Super Nintendo (unofficially on the NES), Sega Game Gear and Sega Genesis.

Although the characters in the game (a total of 10, 7 playable, 2 not-playable and one secret on pc) have been created pretty well, their storylines however are not detailed enough. This is also the problem with the overall storyline.

The playability of the characters is fair, however the speed of the game is pretty slow. The characters moves are too rusty to give the player a good freedom of movement in the game. The moves of the characters, on the other side, are pretty good. The four attack possibilities (High punch, Low punch, High kick and Low kick) are (in combination with the other keys) enough enough to create a good stratigy in the game. And in addition to that, the special moves and fatalities, give a good MK-atmosphere to the game. As for the difficulties in the game, they are balanced out real good and let the player perfectly increase in difficulty. However I think that there could be a couple more difficulty levels with a difficulty harder then "Very Hard", because when you plays the game often, this difficulty level becomes easy very soon. The graphics of the game also helped greatly in creating the MK-atmosphere in the game. Each character is very different from another, not only because of the special moves, but also the graphics (the names are great too). This makes it easier for the player to choose his own favourite character. As for the graphics of the backgrounds in the game, they really seem a part of the battle when you play the game. This eliminates the feeling of fighting before a big picture. The sound of the, again, is also very important for the good MK-atmosphere. The ancient-like music you hear when playing give you this atmosphere, together with the other sounds.

Overall, it can be said that the game is really one of a kind in it's genre (when not counting the other MK-games) and, for all the real MK-fans, it will always be played as a classic, no matter how old the game becomes.
