Has anyone bought a copy from overseas ?
If so please do tell.
And whats the opinion of the game in general? Is it all that and a bag of potato chips ?

I want to buy a copy as a birthday gift for Chronic..(I can say that cause he doesn't ever visit the forums.)



* I have a sister in London might ask if she can send me a copy just scared she might use the money to buy shoes.

Alright, finally played the demo.

Graphically, the game is great, Scorpian looks awesome, his new moves are pretty good too, and the game feels like playing the old MK games, with some great move additions.

Now not to rain on anyones parade, but, it also just isnt all that great compared to some other modern fighting games, like Dead or Alive, Soul Caliber, Marvel VS Capcom, the game play feels slow, old, and the animations don't flow together at all. At one point, I defeated someone with a uppercut, or some other move, that sends the enemy to the ground. He then proceeds to stand up, and then go rigid, and fall backwards. I know this may sound like nit picking, but come on, why did he have to get up, he already didn't have any health, it was over. Let the guy stay down. The over all (K)combat, just doesn't feel as exciting as the other games, feels very retro. Part of me enjoys the feeling of the retro gameplay, but I also feel that creating a new title, with new graphics, and new engine, and with the next gen systems, they are also ignoring all the blood sweet and tears people put into the current game market and are just re releasing OLD stuff with a shiny coat of paint in a failed attempt to hide its flaws of older years long since gone.

I hope you're trolling. You ever played a MK game before?

Never had high hopes for this though, MK was never that good and certainly hasn't improved over the years.

Oh yea, for anyone interested......MK online is only for those who buy the game brand new...or pay retarded money grubbing companies more money.......

Rumor: Warner Bros. joining 'online pass' camp with Mortal Kombat | Joystiq

Also, MK Is getting ahead of themselves with the release of DLC of two characters already...most likely they are on the disk already, you have to pay to unlock them.

Mortal Kombat's first two downloadable fighters revealed | Joystiq

Neither of which are anything super special......
