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

The fourth Mortal Kombat game, Mortal Kombat 4, has been released on PC, Playstation, Nintendo Game Boy and Nintendo 64. The characters in the game (a total of 21, 16 playable, 2 not-playable and 3 secret, on pc)are now made more 3d then in the past MK-games and are also more detailed. The sorylines of the characters might be just as great as in the last 2 games, but I think the names of the new characters could be better. The overall storyline is still great. The playability of the characters is also made better then in the first three games. The speed of the game has been perfectionized, and I think it's perfect now (little slower makes it more realistic).

The player of the game has again much more freedom in the game then in the past games, which also makes the game better to play. The moves of the characters are slighly better, also because of the 3d in them. (I'am glad the friendships and babalities have disappeard).There are also a couple of new game-modes in the game; Team, Endurance, Tournament and practice. The Team mode gives you the possibility to play with a team of fighters (in arcade you can play 2 on 2 which is also a team, only it has 2 players in the team). The Endurance modes has a couple of options to play against a number of fighters without getting your health back after each fight (up to you if you like this). The Tournament mode lets you create your own MK-tournament and even allows you to view the computer-players fight. And the practice mode allows you to practice without getting hurt and even shows you the keys you pressed. In prectice mode you can also view the endings of the players with which you defeated the game in the arcade mode. The four attack possibilities (High punch, Low punch, High kick and Low kick) are still the same as in the first two games, however the characters can now also step in- and out, which allows the user to evade special attacks (running is also still possible, and is still great to use). I don't really think these extra moves did much to improve the game-play. As for the difficulties in the game, they are balanced out great. You can easily play from very easy to very hard, without getting stuck in the game at some point because the difficulty gets much harder at some point. The graphics of the game are again great, 3d, and are good for the MK-atmosphere in the game. Not only the characters, which still are great (and different from each other), but also the backgrounds are once again very good and in 3d. The sounds in the game, just like in the second game, is great.

Overall, it can be said that the game is a great successor from the third game, and shows that the makers of the game are still not out of idea's to improve the MK-games. However I hope their idea's on the characters and story-line will not bleed out in time.
