Over The Top

I turned into a big pussy because the recent gore of Mortal Kombat, with it's high definition x-ray of breaking bones and realistic view of pixelated guts doesn't attract me anymore. When everything was just a blur of red pixels it was funny but the new one just rubs me the wrong way.

Which is a pity because the new Mortal Kombat looks great and the challenge modes seem very, very fun and interesting.

In the end, I am more of a Street Fighter / Darkstalker / Samurai Shadown kind of guy anyway, but I guess I've been longing for a *good* Mortal Kombat game, and this one takes the bill.

After 9 different versions of the game, I just wonder if they still have new, interesting ways to mutilate people left.
