Ok, so to anyone who has played MK2 back in the day (i.e. Arcades) was it always this horribly broken? I mean when I...

jump kick them first, they jump kick me?
jump back, they throw projectiles (non-stop!!!)
go for a sweep, they grab me?
do Baraka's "Blade Shredder" they grab me?.........WTF

I ended up turnning off the game, went to my room, hooked up the SNES, put in MK2, and had fun!!!

I never got the chance to play MK1-4 in the Arcades so i don't know if they were this bat shit crazy? I beat MK1 and UMK3 easy but MK2....wow. I think I know why Ed Boon likes UMK3 better then MK2 lol

Today I had a full on war against Motaro. Holy fuck. One time it was the 3rd round and he was on danger. Then he picks me up and punches me.

It sucks having to know that you're dead when you still haven't died yet.

One time he teleported, grabbed me, punched me, teleported, punched me, teleported, kicked me, dead. FUCK HIM

oh and Jade UMK3 as well.

Yup, the games AI has always been that broken, but it's also exploitable if you know what your doing. Like Kitana's fan rise, or repeatedly sweeping them if you have the distance and timing down.

I also find Motaro to be a pushover. Just jump kick him when he goes to jump, run in and combo him, just keep moving.

You wanna know what I want after playing this game? Retros for everyone else, my goodness I love MK1 Johnny Cage, MK3 Sonya, MK3 Shang Tsung, Mk1 Kano, and heck I'll take UMK3 Ninjas, etc, so boss.


I'm really hoping we get retros and fatality packs together, Shang Tsung's soul steal, and Sonya's Kiss of death from MK1 or MK3, I'd pick that up in a flash, in addition to classic fatals and skins for other people

Man, The online... This is pretty much the whole reason I bought this game.

I really. REALLLY fucking hope they fix this. They have a good setup, just it's terrible.

I can still manage to fuck some kids up though with my Kabal.

BTW,

Total Sub-Zeros fought Klassic/MK3/ = 17

Cyborg Smokes = 11

Stryker = 1

Seriously lol

Still debating on whether i want to get it or not. I thinks I may wait to see if they iron out online or not. Although i do miss my childhood days of sitting in front of the TV till my eyes bled playing UMK3

LOL IGN gave the game a 6.0 They said MK2 is the most balanced of the three. You can't spell "Ignorance" without IGN

Of course not. Then you would have "orance" or "orant", and that's just silly. Who wants to be known as orant? HEY! You're such an orant human being! What kind of talk is that? It's just madness really. And THAT is what this world is coming to. Just young, totally orant kids running the place.

So can we bombard Ed's twitter and pester him and the orant online team over there for at least an answer as to whether or not they are going to fix the lag?

I haven't played these ports myself, but 6.0 sounds about right for what sounds to be a poorly done emulation.

News Article UPDATED!


IGN's Video Review for the MK: Arcade Kollection has now been added to the News Article.

You can also read their Full Review in an Article found in their official website. From their article:

"I've been a fan of Mortal Kombat from the very second my mom told me I couldn't play it (lol it's my job now). Spike pits, decapitations, and Shaolin monks transforming into cheetahs define my '90s fighting game experience. So ask me to pay $10 for some old school Mortal Kombat and I'm down for it, even if it's a reminder that these games are cheap, frustrating, and dated."

"As frustrating a challenge as the games present, my nostalgia still came back in full force. Synapses I haven't fired neurons across in well over a decade whirred back to life, reminding me of all the little strategic minutiae of the games. There's something immensely satisfying about re-figuring out how to beat Shao Kahn after almost 20 years. And when you add a friend to the mix the fun increases exponentially. Mortal Kombat may be a weak fighter compared to other games, but it's one of the most fun multiplayer games around. "


Thanks guys for the heads-up and special thanks to samus_aran3900 for submitting the news lead in MKO!

I can't beleive that IGN called MK2 the most balanced. The other day I had my ass handed to me by Sub-Zero in MK2. Balanced my ass.

It's a little different. Do not do the stage fatality code. Hold down LP and LK as you uppercut them. That should toss them into the pool.

Sure. Hold down on your controller during the fatality, and you should hear someone say something like "aw wah" or something like that. Still not sure what they say there.

Or even worse, AI in games like Art of Fighting 2 (in which was super duper hard).

Just spent over an hour trying to beat Shao Kahn on UMK3 and finally got the achievement this time. There's a difference between "hard" and "not fun". Fuck MKAK.

Actually when that battle came I spammed Liu Kangs low fireball the whole time, usually shao kahn would try to shoot his blaast but itd miss liu kang while ur shooting the low fireball attack making him easy to beat... and yes it sucks that with some characters u have to spam moves just to win or in other cases use cheap tricks to win, I win but i wanna have fun too sad
Cage always wins, and in MK u will be Caged!

Lol I tried both that AND the fan lift, but neither worked. I eventually just tried to jump in and combo with Reptile and acid spit when I could get one in. It took so long and was so obnoxious though, I just can't comprehend why they would think that could be fun for anybody.
