Welcome to the slightly revised version of the Vgchartz ranking game which trasharmdsister12 and I will be co-hosting!

All you have to do is put what score you think the game below deserves, and write a brief explanation as to why it deserves that score.

Voting is open for 4 days, after the 4 day period I will count up all the scores and get the average of the game.  The consistency of new threads may vary in the coming days, weeks, and months aswe have busier lives than our once younger, more naive, and definitely hotter selves 



Rules

1. You had to have played at least enough of the game to form an honest opinion about it

(playing it for 5 minutes is NOT enough time, nor is watching a friend play the game)

2. If you score a game 5 or under, you have to go into great detail as to why you gave it such a low score.

3. A game must have at least 15 people that gave it a score to be counted.

4. If you score a game more than once none of your scores will count

5. Users with less than 50 posts cannot score a game unless they have been on the site for more then 1 year.

MK did some really great things and raised the bar really high for fighting games, the amount of features, modes, unlockables all great. However it F**KS up massively on basic things.

- Online is region locked
- Online is laggy as hell
- Matchmaking is complete crap.
- Balance is godawful.

It gets a 5, because those 4 things are just unforgivable and ruin the bulk of playing.  The online pass is bogus also.

Damn finally a game I've played!

9.2

As a Mortal Kombat veteran who's played every mainline game I assume I don't have to justify my score?

Edit - Also can you disregard KylieIlovecapcomandstreetfighterdog's score please? He's obviously just hating and isn't capable of liking MK given it's SF's rival, how petty.



 

I haven't played this game yet, but I will rate it anyway.

The Mortal Kombat series has never been known for precise controls, good balance or likeable characters and the latest installment is no exception. It's probably the most infantile game you can buy right now and other than shock value it has nothing going for it. You punch someone in the face and liters of blood fly around. Does this make sense? Of course it doesn't. Mortal Kombat is stupid, brainless and just dumb.

And I like it. 8.5/10.



Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.

No score because I didn't play the final game but the Demo is nothing special... Meh.



Pros:
A story mode than i never thought i would see in a fighting game
Improved kombat mechanics thats makes it easy for the casual and fullfling for the hardkore
Lots of content & unlockables
The Bone Krushing moves are awesome

Cons:
Glitches
Laggy online
Shao Khan is a cheap cheap bastard (but still awesome)

Score: 9.1

First fighter I've enjoyed this gen. The genre itself really hasn't adjusted well to the current gen - it just feels outdated to me, but I've been enjoying MK despite that. The fact that there's loads of single player content is a really big plus; fighting games seem to badly neglect single player (I'm looking at you Virtua Fighter >_>).

The downsides are that the graphics aren't amazing, a lot of the characters feel too similar, and they took way too long to fix the online problems (and there are still minor issues even now).

8.7

What's petty is your reply. He brings up decent points.

As a man that has never been a fan of MK, I'm giving it a 6.5. Somewhat because of the points Kylie brought up, and somewhat because I just don't find it as fun as SF/BlazBlue - MK is IMO not fast enough and, while it may sound weird, not insane enough.



This hasn't been up for a really long while!

Pros:
Nice controls
Great and different story
Plenty of things to do
Good characters
Feels more realistic than the average fighting game

Cons:
Feels outdated
Doesn't bring the joy the old MK's used to give me
Online is way too laggy
Freezes often.
Gets boring fast

So I give it a 7.9
