Title: A massive step up from MK3

It's amazing, since the early 90s Mortal Kombat the Arcade game hit the stores in America. About a decade passes, and two more sequels using sprites of real humans are released into the gaming world. Then, the entire real-life human sprite videogaming experience of Mortal Kombat changes, when the fourth installment comes out in 3D.

I was surprised when I first got the console version of the game on PSOne. The graphics were excellent for a PSOne game; smooth and highly detailed. For the first time in the entire MK Series there were actual movie sequences after you had completed Arcade mode unlike the previous ones where you were shown pictures with subtitles describing the aftermath of your character.

The game is great with its controls, easy to remember and in the tradition with the previous MKs. You can still do Sub Zero's basic freeze move like in every single other MK with down, forward + low punch.

The plot is alright, I have to admit I disliked the installments of the two new sinister bosses Shinnok and Quan Chi. Those two were not as good as Shao Kahn or even Shang Tsung. However there is a character from the original MK, Goro which is now in 3D and still manages to kick your butt so easily just like in MK.

Overall, Mortal Kombat 4 is pretty good. With its easy to remember controls, smooth graphics and promising to last you hours of gameplay. Henceforth I give this game a 9/10!!
