MORTAL KOMBAT: KOMPLETE EDITION

WB Games

PS3 (also on Xbox 360)

Hey, where is everybody? It’s supposed to be a party!

Hang on, let’s study the invitation... oops, we’re over a year late. Fukk!

Of kourse, we Australians kan blame this on those lovely guardians of what we kan and kan’t ingest entertainmentastikally, the Klassifikation Board. They banned this inkarnation of the bloodthirsty arkade romp outright, due to a ridikulous lakk of an R18+ rating. Well, that was brought in a wee while bakk, and ta-da! We finally get to party. Even if everybody else has long gone home. Or kollapsed gutterwards. Or ended up in hospital. Or was impaled upon something big, long and stikky.

Honestly, MK really is brutal – we had no idea how gruesome until some Raiden bloke let rip with an x-ray attakk that we wouldn’t want any kids we know witnessing. Hell, we’re probably gonna have nightmares from it.

But you likely know what MK’s all about after almost 20 years of various inkarnations – biffo, extreme biffo and extremely extreme fatality-wielding biffo. It’s all here and more. When they abuse the English language with their ‘Komplete’ labelling they mean it, man. As well as the game, online konnektability and a naff dress-ups box (unless you dig playing dollies with krazed martial arts maniaks), there’re four extra kharakters. Freddy Krueger breaks from terrorising Elm Street to pop by, and if you’re PS3-equipped you kan also go nuts with everybody’s fave nutkase-slaphead, God of War’s Kratos. There’s no movie or musik kode like overseas though, and that’s krap.

Still, it’s our first time, so the delightfully preposterous story mode, selektion of all really quite similarly equipped fighters and plethora of lokal and online fight options would make for a fairly komplete pakkage without the extra kostumes and stuff.

If you’ve a hankering to forkibly remove others’ spines then hey, you kan now go krazy. Well, legally.

take me back to the start...
