Mortal Kombat: Armageddon (PlayStation 2)

 

The goriest fighting game series around returns for another bout in Mortal Kombat: Armageddon, which is the first game in the series to let you create your own character as well as your own finishing moves. However, these good-in-theory ideas aren't...

If there is one game that is synonymous with video games it is Mortal Kombat. Whether you love the franchise or have simply had enough no one can deny the...

Largest Roster Of Fighters Ever ; Kreate-A-Fighter finally ; Tons Of New Stages ; MK Fanboy's wet dream

Kreate-A-Fatality leaves a bit to be desired ; Kart racing falls flat

This is a good pick for a fighting fan and currently has a reduced price instead of the normal $50. So... for the price, Mortal Kombat: Armageddon is worth picking up with all its features and its relatively low price. Don't miss out. It is a must have...

The sound consists of some mediocre voice acting, a little above-average effects, and a better soundtrack than in most recent MK installments. There’s actually a story mode in this one, which is where you’ll find those forgettable voiceovers, and the...

The story includes two brothers who are placed on earth for a reason, but the story is secondary to the action, which isn’t necessarily a positive thing for this mode. It’s good fun, though, and you'll learn plenty of great moves as you progress. ...

Mortal Kombat: Armageddon marks the last installment of the series for current gen (and Wii) hardware. As a result, MK fans and Midway alike hoped this would be the end-all-be-all for the franchise. While it doesn't quite reach that standard, it does...

All in all, Mortal Kombat: Armageddon is a flawed fighting, racing, and adventure game that never ceases to provide enjoyment in spite of its flaws. After the previous two 3D MKs left bad tastes in my mouth, I didn't expect to have much fun with this...

Mortal Kombat is a series that started out as cheesy and shockingly violent fighter. It has managed to become an increasingly more sophisticated series as time has passed, without losing the gory silliness that has won over so many fans. Armageddon is...

Mortal Kombat: Armageddon is a hard game to review because most of what you could denigrate is there on purpose. Oh, the storyline is over the top and kind of ridiculous? It seems sort of unnecessary that you can tear a guy's arm off or throw him into...

Over sixty playable characters ; Kreate-A-Fighter mode ; Generally the over-the-top craziness you've come to know and love from Mortal Kombat

Individual fatalities no longer part of the game ; Fighting feels clunky compared to many other 3D fighters ; Nobody shouting "Toasty!" in this one

If you fondly remember the old Mortal Kombat games from your ill-spent youth, you might get a big kick out of this. If it's just a solid 3D fighter you're after, you may want to look elsewhere.

Midway's current-gen MK swan song is solid, but not perfect.

I couldn't even begin to recollect how many quarters I lost while playing Mortal Kombat in the arcade. This gorefest series started out as an alternative to Street Fighter and quickly developed a cult of its own thanks to interesting characters and...

Armageddon is a great endeavor and worthwhile installment of the Mortal Kombat franchise. The fighting has evolved to a point where it's much more robust whether you're fighting the CPU or a buddy. Extra modes and features also add to the replayability...

Quantity over quality is stressed here as we see more characters, more modes, more unlockables, and more Mortal Kombat than ever before.

Tons of characters, tons of unlockables, enough Mortal Kombat content to make any MK fan happy

All that extra stuff feels like fluff, the rally racing mode is pointless and boring, the MK characters are starting to look corny
