STAR RATING: ***** The Works **** Just Misses the Mark *** That Little Bit In Between ** Lagging Behind * The Pits
From what little plot I could make out to this latest addition to the MK series, here goes. Shang Tsung is p!ssed at losing the last battle, so he traps Liu Kang (who I thought was killed in Deadly Alliance???) and Rayden under a rapidly destructing rock and, with Rayden's guidance, Kang is left to battle a bunch of huge goblin like creatures to make his way to the final.
Fans of the arcade style of MK will be sourly disappointed with this latest entry. Here you have only two characters to choose from, as opposed to the veritable array of characters in the last two entries. And it's not to do with one-on-one sparring, instead it's one character receiving instructions from Rayden to take out the seemingly endless army of monsters. It's fairly good fun, but it's fairly monotonous and gets rather boring after a while. An inspired change from the norm, but not nearly as much fun. **
