What a tame mortal kombat this one is. DC made Ed Boon its bitch. Atleast the controls are smoother than the other previous clunkers. They made the moves all simpler to pull off (you know like when you pick the simpler combinations for your tricks on tony hawk xP). You notice when playing characters that they all have the same basic set of moves (a stun, a counter or escape, etc.) meaning they basically went out of their way to balance all the characters. The negative aspect of this balancing? They made the characters seem almost like clones of eachother... just in different skin. They even took out alot of the stuff that was in the previous games like create a character, konquest (replaced with story mode), and the kombat racing. I wonder...what have you people thought of the Mortal Kombat series as its progressed?
