One of the greatest video games ever!
Mortal Kombat and its sequels are some of the greatest games ever created! It has a good story, incredible action, great music, awesome characters, very fun, really interesting looking stages, and more! Below is an In-depth review of the game called Mortal Kombat 4!

Story: Many fighters around the world enter this deadly tournament. Since now the contest is in Shinnok's hands it will become much more difficult for the Kombatants to win!

Fujin - Is he the God of wind? Can Raiden trust him? With the dark powers of Shinnok and Quan Chi he has no other but to trust him!

Jarek - Is he the very last member of the Black Dragon? Whether he is or not he is a great fighter!

Jax - U.S. Special Forces Major Jackson Briggs enters the tournament with his huge bionic arms!

Johnny Cage - Johnny Cage - An action movie star, Cage enters Mortal Kombat!

Kai - He joins Lui Kang and Raiden in this unbelievable fight against Quan Chi and Shinnok!

Lui Kang - This Chinese warrior is a fearless fighter who is bent on getting revenge!

Quan Chi - The pale face sorcerer is the one who freed the abandoned God Shinnok. Now there will be total abomination!

Raiden - Is it true Lord Raiden is the God of thunder?

Reiko - This fighter was once a powerful leader in Shinnok's grand army.

Reptile - Reptile - Not much is known about this fighter except he wears the same exact ninja uniforms as Scorpion and Sub Zero but only green and can mimic other fighters maneuvers! Though it is thought that he is the last of an ancient reptilian humanoid specie. Since Shang Tsung and Shao Khan are both defeated he join Shinnok's legions!

Scorpion - A poor soul, when he was a live his wife and child were murdered by Sub Zero and the Lin Kuei clan of ninjas. Scorpion with his trusty spear is seeking revenge on the cold one.

Shinnok - He took over the realm of Edenia, betrayed the Gods, joined forces with Quan Chi, and now he enters Mortal Kombat to rule all realms!

Sonya Blade - A beautiful Texan who is a Lt. in the United States Army. The skilled fighter enters the tournament after defeating Kano. Now she must fight a new enemy which not the last member of Kano's gang The Black Dragon Jarek but a much more dangerous fighter in Quan Chi!

Sub Zero - The younger brother of the murderer of Scorpion's family is in the tournament. Now it will be a big showdown like never seen before!

Tanya - The beautiful daughter of Edenia's ambassador. She enters the Tournament!

Noob Saibot - A deadly shadow ninja!

Meat - Who is Meat? What is Meat? Is he a fighter? If so what is he doing in Mortal Kombat?

Goro - A huge half-human dragon from Kuatan, the 4th Astrial Plane of Shokan in the Realm of Outworld. This giant has been undefeated for half of a millennium. He defeated Liu Kang's ancestor the Shaolin Monk Kung Lao. Now the tournament begins!

Game Play: The game play is very good. The basic movies are easy to perform but the fatalities are very hard to do but with the help of cheats it can be much easier.

Graphics: The graphics are wonderful. Most of the game is digitalized!

Difficulty: The game can be very easy or it can be very hard depending on what you set the difficulty level.

Music: The music is great! Just awesome catchy tunes through out the game! In My opinion its some of the best music ever in a video game!

Sound: The sound is great. The real voices sound clear and the punching and kicking does as well.

Overall: I have always loved Mortal Kombat. If you like excellent fighting games then I strongly recommend you play Mortal Kombat 4 today!
