The reviews don't seem to stop coming in as TeamXbox has just released their review of Mortal Kombat: Shaolin Monks. The guys go as far as not only giving this game an overall rating of 8.7, but they also choose the game as their Editor's Choice! From the review:
Mortal Kombat: Shaolin Monks is much different than other MK titles out there, and this necessarily isn't a bad thing. The MK story and its band of characters have always been a blast; even the low-budget film had some high points. The same pretty much goes for Mortal Kombat: Shaolin Monks. The gameplay is solid enough to not get in the way of a pretty cool story that, in one way of another, introduces all of your old friends into the mix. An absolutely incredible cinematic kicks off the story, and a short training/tutorial level will introduce gamers to the intricacies of Multi-Directional Kombat. The Multi system works for the most part, and is enhanced with the help of Havok physics. It's quite unique to be able to hit three or four foes at once and choose in which order to do so….all while in the air. The only drawback is that the camera (which isn't totally free-roaming) can sometimes get a little confused. Midway did, however, include a panoramic and close-up cam to at least give some options. The gameplay is definitely unique - exactly what the MK series needed as it makes the turn into yet another generation of consoles. [...]It is basically impossible that you have never played a MK title if you frequent But in the case that you haven't messed with the Fatality crew before, Mortal Kombat: Shaolin Monks isn't a bad place to start. The story may not make total sense, but the action is fresh and furious. Gamers well versed in the ways of the Flawless Victory should get a kick out of Mortal Kombat: Shaolin Monks as well. While not a true fighter, it still offers up enough combo-type fighter moves to keep the hardcore head-to-head fans happy. If you're still leery about the new format, then give Mortal Kombat: Shaolin Monks a rent, but action fans should have no problems justifying the premium price- especially those that like to co-op campaign with a friend.
