I do wish they could have overhauled the whole trilogy with new AI and good stuff.

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


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.


Well of course boss battles are never fun spamming moves =/ and I agree with u on the no fun part =( I loved just to use my main guys in each mk, Mk1 Mk2 Johnny Cage, UMK3 Kabal. Other than that it sucks when the computers are that hard on very easy predicting all of ur moves smh...furious
Cage always wins, and in MK u will be Caged!

I beat UMK3 with Scorpion. Just used the spear, jump in punch then that 4 hit easy ass combo. Worked every time almost.

On the other hand, unlocking Klassic Sub-Zero is a bitch! I did the right code like 11 times before it worked.

I don't understand the point of this collection. Ps3 owners could already get mk2 and 360 owners could already get umk3. Why would they not go with mk1, mk3,mk trilogy??.... Btw I did get umk3 when it came out for the 360 and the lag online was do horrible that I stopped playing. I heard from reviews that this collection is just as bad online. NRS or whomever really should have took the time to put more into this collection or they shouldn't have done it at all IMO.

O well I still have the original mk3, and trilogy disk so I can pop them in anytime I want.

UMK3 hasn't been on Xbox Live Marketplace for a year, they took it off.

Remember to perform them you need to have won the winning round using only kicks. And with animalities you have to perform a mercy on your opponent first, then beat them again

I had a ton of trouble with the Animality. I had never done one before, so it took a lot of Googling to find out you had to do a Mercy on the other side of the screen and then do it. It took like 5 tries before Mercy worked since you get a blinks worth of time to do finishers in MKAK.

While I like meeting the challenge of having to follow those special rules to perform certain finishers, its also quite a hassel. But when I pull it off it was all worth it.

Do them in UMK3, it's easier. For Friendships, Babalities, don't Block the final round. To do a Animality, you have to win the 3rd round, perform Mercy(Hold Run and press down 3 times) then defeat them

Mercy only works very rarely, is the difficult thing, and it tends to be fiddly and unresponsive

Mercy must be done very far from the opponent. And it works every time with me.

By the way, its so funny to watch new people suffer trying to beat the classic games.

MK is not for everyone and its needed to see how CPU reacts and to explore the bugs that there is.

In MK1, the CPU falls in every jump kick.

In MK2, the CPU follows you when you jump back.

In UMK3, the CPU stand waiting for you to react and its possible to win forcing them to throw a projectile and even with time out.

But still is my favorite game ever. I will die playing Mortal Kombat.

All the classics and I miss MK4 too.

Mercy is hold run, crouch three times, then release and hit run again?

I've never pulled off an animality, I don't know the timing yet. Is it tap fast as you can? Or slow and methodical like mk9?

OK, revisiting the classic games, MK1 and MKA Premium Disc, and Arcade Treasures 2...

This PS3 collection is definitely wrong.

Its slow, MK1, MK2 and UMK3 are little slow in this new version.

There was some time that I did not play the old games and I had the feeling that something was wrong.

Now I am certain.

We will never get a perfect arcade version of MK Classics to home console. This is for MAME.
