This was to be the Jaguar's Mortal Kombat
killer, and it doesn't
quite live up to the popular one's visceral carnage. It tries though,
sometimes comically. And I don't mean that in a good way. The comical
part comes into play with the "over the top" death sequences.
They've tried to improve on the pit from MK
, but it just doesn't
work and probably should have been left out completely.
Graphics are nice at times, but the animation isn't so great. In fact,
it's quite choppy. Turning on the speed cheat makes it play better, but
not by much. The sounds are clear and the punching (the primary sound
effect) sounds devastating enough.
As a game, I've found it mostly enjoyable, but there aren't too many
combos or juggles to be found. Also, the controls don't live up to the
promise of MK as the special moves don't always come off as you
would like. It's good fun, but doesn't fulfill it's ultimate promise.
Thanks to the new format, you'll be getting a full review soon. Blood everywhere!
