There is also an extensive online section which is well worth your time and features several different types of battles. You're going to need to buy the game new to play online or purchase a code, because the one included in the box can only be used once.
Mortal Kombat is a distinct brand of fighter, it is more brutal than most and while it relies on combos it doesn't do so as heavily as other games in the genre. No, what Mortal Kombat asks is that you spill blood, lots of it. As you go further into each battle, fighters take damage which doesn't magically heal and blood hits the ground and remains there. It is a vicious, gore-filled title which revels in its M rating.
Or, to bring you back to what I said about 1,000 words ago – it's pretty much Mortal Kombat. If you like your fighting games bloody and with tons to do, you're going to like this one.
Mortal Kombat is rated M (Mature) by the ESRB for Blood and Gore, Intense Violence, Partial Nudity, and Strong Language. This game can also be found on Xbox 360.
