Mortal Kombat Demo!

The internet hype machine is really all over this iteration of Mortal Kombat and for good reason. Promises of lots of game modes, tag battles, pretty graphics, lots of fatalities. Although the demo only includes 4 characters (Scorpion, Johnny Cage, Mileena, Sub-Zero) and 2 modes - versus and ladder, it was pretty fun to play through and re-learn some old favorites.

I don't know what it is, but moves and fatalities are all really easy to execute now compared to prior MK's, but the timing on some of the combos are still strict. A lot hasn't changed, but everything is really fluid now, and there are some pretty neat surprises. In the end though, I can't see myself putting as much time into this one as Marvel vs Capcom 3 since I prefer that fighting engine over this one, but it still might be worth a playthrough.
