PlayStation Plus users are lucky enough to download the new Mortal Kombat demo today. As a big Mortal Kombat fan I am very excited for the new game.
I have very high hopes for this game and the demo did not disappoint. I made the bold statement that this was one of the best fighting games I have ever played, and this is only an unfinished demo. Very early to make statements like that but I honestly was amazed at how fresh it felt.
The demo allows you to play as four characters (Scorpion, Sub-Zero, Mileena and Johnny Cage). The game has great fan service. I noticed a few little details that gave me shivers, like Scorpions leg takedown from MKII and the music from the living forest stage also from MKII. Each character has combos just like MK3/UMK3 which are easy enough to pull off and great to mix with other special moves. X-ray moves and fatalities are also awesome and fun to pull off. I have already learnt all Scorpion’s move list and am ready for the final game. I look forward to using Reptile, Noob Saibot and Baraka.
Cannot wait for April 19th for me to whoop Kratos’ ass from realm to realm.
