Having 6 different types of coins, ruby, sapphire, gold, jade, etc, and needing specific types of coins to unlock Drahmin and Hsu Hao. Game is home to the worst fatalities, and worst characters in the entire franchise. And that's not even mentioning how stiff the games were. But, I'm not going to bother trying to draw some line where good and excellent games are supposed to be. Every mainline fighting game franchise around back then, was better than MK. VF4, Tekken 4 & 5, Soul Calibur 2, & 3, all of them better than MK:DA, & MK:D. Mavado wasn't cool then, and he isn't cool today. Neither is Kobra.
If the games weren't total failures, MK wouldn't have to move back to 2D. Let's also not pretend like Street Fighter IV had nothing to do with that decision. Proving that people would still buy 2D fighters.
The game isn't trash today. Things turned around with MK9, but let's not try to act like the entire franchise was this great thing. With that said, I'll have plenty of L's to give out to everyone as soon as the game comes out.
Yeah there were a ton of lame characters in Deadly Alliance. One of the best things MK9 did was go back to the 90's characters we all loved. The games sold well. They weren't failures at all.
