I like the offensive environment interactions and changeable weapon types/stances in Injustice quite a bit. I think MK2011 is a bit more visceral in sheer combat though. Both games are about equal in my book (i.e. awesome), and both are equally worth owning.

If you were turned off by the N64 and PS1 3D MK games it's understandable. As far as the Deception/Deadly Alliance/Armageddon era is concerned though, all those games are worth playing. Armageddon is my favorite of the bunch though, so much stuff to do in that game.

It does away with the simplistic tutorial fight missions from Deadly Alliance or the time specific quests and missions from Deception that players weren't even guaranteed to discover. Instead, Armageddon takes a couple of pages from the popular spin-off title Shaolin Monks, providing a linear exploratory adventure while introducing two new characters. It also has Create A Fighter. Make fighters that look like people you hate and beat their face in. Good times. Armageddon is in top three MK games for me.


+1

I have it on the Wii and it's one of those games I seem to play every year.

OMG I JUST READ ABOUT MOTOR KOMBAT

...I had no idea these PS2-era games had mini games. Stoked!

are any of them deep enough to reasonably count as a stand alone entry on the "Games Beaten" list?

Ack, I know I like MK1-3, so the idea is to play the rest prior to TR. I'll play 1-3 that month and shoot for the full mainline series by year's end.

I did lose the faith with PS1/N64 era 3D MK games...and missed a gen's worth of good stuff I guess :?

How's the Dreamcast MK Gold game?

yes. Motor Kombat is a full on Mario Kart clone game. There's also a Puzzle Fighter clone game as well. These really are full bonus games, not just mini games.

I can't remember which games are where though - some were only on LE's, I believe.

Haha, then you and I have the opposite problem! I spent a lot of time with MK but didn't really follow the sequels until Mortal Kombat Trilogy and then went through the various 3D reincarnations to try and get the taste of MK4 out of my mouth. So for me, it'll be about going back to recapture the magic.

All this mortal kombat mini-game talk reminds me of the greatest Mortal Kombat ripoff of all times... PONG KOMBAT!

Hmm, I thought the LE stuff was all video content...maybe w/ports of some of the earlier 2D games, too? I'll be sad if I don't have the mini games. Specifically, I recently bought this:

...they better be there!

By not having the LEs I thought I was just missing stuff I have elsewhere or videos I can find on YouTube...

Shaolin Monks is a fantastic co-op brawler btw. Had a lot of fun beating it last decade.

Now i feel like the only person that didn't like the PS2 era of MK, besides shaolin monks.

You are right, bonus stuff is videos and arcade port of MK1. All the good bonus stuff is on the actual game discs.
