Last Tuesday I downloaded the Mortal Kombat 9 demo for PS3. I was a fan of the first to Mortal Kombat fighting games, but since then it seemed with every of the game got further and further away from what made the game so popular when it first game out.
With Mortal Kombat 9, which is being called just Mortal Kombat, the people behind the game are finally going back to what made the game so popular when it originally came out. The over the top blood and violence.
The trailer above does not include actual game play but shows off the fact that Kratos from Gods of War is a playable character in the new game.
The demo comes with four playable characters. Scorpion, Johnny Cage, Mileena, and Sub-Zero. I have beaten the demo using all the characters. I have to say that this game really has restored my faith in the Mortal Kombat franchise. I would say this version of Mortal Kombat is one of my all time favorit fighting games second only to Dead or Alive.
I collected the fatality codes for the for playable characters below.
Scorpion – Forward, Down, Forward, Triangle
Johnny Cage – Forward, Forward, Back, Down, X
Mileena – Back, Forward, Back, Forward, Triangle
Sub-Zero – Back, Forward, Down, Forward, Circle
