Mortal Kombat still kicks! 2

Love it or hate it, Mortal Kombat has become a household name since its release in 1991. A fighting game that utilized digitized actors depicting acts of gratuitous violence certainly caused a stir amongst critics, and received fairly widespread backlash from politicians. This was a dark yet exciting time for game players, as they got to lavish in a fight to the death—courtesy of their local arcade.

Also with twice the characters introducing awesome characters too. You can pull of moves and specials to drain your opponents health, and then finish him off with a fatality full of blood. The graphics for this game is alright, but its the gameplay that really puts this game where its at. And the gameplay is very good, and also very addi...
