Mortal Kombat (PS Vita)

 

As fighting games go, Mortal Kombat has always held a distinct place in the history of the genre, shunning the often cartoonlike style of its contemporaries in favour of gore and guts. Its latest incarnation on the Vita is no different, pushing the...

In-depth story mode ; Revamped control system makes it easy to pick up and play ; Huge amount of content to unlock--even more than the console versions ; Challenge Tower minigames and challenges are lots of fun ; Viciously brutal moves

Tag team combos ruined by placement of the tag-switch command ; Shao Kahn is incredibly cheap

Does this fighter withstand the transition to handheld? Find out inside.

Overall, if you own a Vita, this is one of the must-have titles out there. Even if you beat Mortal Kombat on the consoles, it’s worth picking up for the Bonus Challenge Tower alone. The game offers you plenty to do and is more than worth the $40 price...

Mortal Kombat had a triumphant return to consoles, and it is that iteration that has come to the Vita. It is an excellent port that not only manages to retain the feel and content of the original in its smaller scale, but it also manages to add on an...

Mortal Kombat is a step back in time, but a step forward for the series, and for fighting games in general. The gameplay is a highly refined version of the classic experience, crafting a deep experience that’s simple enough to grasp, yet tricky to...

AsThomas said nearly a year ago, the Mortal Kombat reboot was a great overall game that put the focus back on the fighting without padding the disc with filler. The Vita version takes the same core game, downgrades the graphics a bit, but also and adds...

Despite a few control issues, Mortal Kombat on the Vita is every bit the great and gruesome fighter as its console counterparts, but with even more bloody content to explore.

While the basic controls have been stripped back, a super meter has been introduced that gives you a few more options during a fight. As you receive and land hits, the meter builds up through three levels. The lowest level gives you access to enhanced...

Mortal Kombat Vita Review

 

Fighting games seem to be a favorite genre for PS Vita ports, isn't it? We already had BlazBlue: Continuum Shift and Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 on launch, and this week Mortal Kombat gets ported to Vita - and we still have Street Fighter X Tekken on...

Through all of this, I've barely talked about how Mortal Kombat Vita plays, but suffice it to say that this is a very accurate port of an exciting, revitalized version of a classic fighting game - now with new features and very few mobile-gaming...

Last year's Mortal Kombat reboot delivered the brutal fighting goods in spades, and old-school fans of the iconic franchise were – for the most part – satisfied. Now, enter the handheld iteration for Sony's new PlayStation Vita, which not only boasts...

Mortal Kombat Vita Review

 

Mortal Kombat hits the Vita with a brand new challenge tower and tons of new features.

If you weren't a fan of the franchise's reboot last year, then Mortal Kombat on Vita isn't likely to convert you. The new bonus challenge tower represents the main addition from last year, so if you weren't sold on the challenges the first time around,...

Mortal Kombat Review: A Near-Flawless Victory

 

Mortal Kombat thoroughly impresses on Vita despite limitations.

I didn't think it fair to review Mortal Kombat for Vita without referencing the following key paragraph from our original review, which was written a little over a year ago by fighting game savant Neidel Crisan:

VITAlity.

Still the great MK combat and characters; Retains nearly all of the modes; ...plus a true online mode; Vita-specific touches are okay to good; Full roster and extra costumes

Some graphical reduction; Difficulty still decreases with replays

Mortal Kombat Vita is mainly everything you would expect, replete with the full character roster and all of the standard versus, tag team, and multiplayer modes. The particular Vita-specific touches are rather one-note but they're fairly innocuous. In...
