Has anybody check out the new Mortal Kombat yet? A buddy of mine gifted me a copy but what I've experienced in it so far, I gladly would have payed the $60 or whatever for the game if I could have afforded it. I've enjoyed some of the past MK games (UMK3, MK4), but I've never been too big a fan of the series (hated the first 2). This is the first time I've ever been excited for a MK ttile and I have yet to be disappointed. The return to 2D gameplay is very welcome, I could never quite get into the 3D ones, it always felt like they could have been better off without the extra dimension. The actual fighting gameplay itself is smoother than ever and feels great, all characters play differently from one another, all of the basic punch and kick combos are unique to each character. All of my favorite characters of the series are here, among some new twists to the cast. The story mode is rather lengthy, but really well done, fights and cutscenes merge seamlessly, making it feel like a martial arts movie that becomes a video game once the fights start. The challenge tower is quite fun and with 300 challenges, it will take some time to complete. So far my favorite challenge was one where you play as Scorpion and you are tasked with defending your right to hate teddies against Mileena who has made one for you. I haven't dipped into the multiplayer side of things yet, but everything I've experienced in the single player side of things so far has been superb. As a long time Street Fighter fan, I'm surprised to find myself saying I've had way more fun with this than any Street Fighter game I've played, and this is definitely one of the best fighting games I've ever played. If you've had any interest in this, I definitely suggest checking it out.<br>
