MORTAL KOMBAT: DEADLY ALLIANCE

Mortal Kombat: Deadly Alliance was released in North America on the Playstation 2 November 16th, 2002, on Gamecube November 17th, 2002, and on Xbox November 18th, 2002. The game was praised for it's move into a full 3-D world, with free movement, and a new focus on hand to hand combat, or as MK calls it, Kombat.

However, the PS2, Gamecube, and Xbox were not the only systems getting a version of the 5th main Mortal Kombat game, as it had been also announced that Nintendo's latest handheld, the Game Boy Advance, would be getting their own port of the game, allowing people to "Finish Him" on the go.

Sure enough, just 2 days after the Xbox release, November 20th, 2002, Mortal Kombat: Deadly Alliance showed up on store shelves for the Game Boy Advance, and it was plenty different from the console versions...

Story - 6

The basic story is the same as the console, but the GBA port won't give you all the info, forcing you to rely on Character Bios (shown by highlighting a character on the select screen and pressing select) to get any story, however, I will be telling you the games story, as shown from the console game's introduction.

After being sent to the Neatherrealm by the ninja specter Scorpion, the sorcerer Quan Chi escapes the realm into Earth realm, where he meets another sorcerer, Shang Tsung, a man who consumes the souls of others, allowing him eternal life. Quan Chi and Shang Tsung team up, and so, the Deadly Alliance is formed.

The two sorcerers decide to kill the only the only two men that could stop them from resurrecting the Dragon King's undefeatable army, the Emperor of Outworld, Shao Kahn, and champion on Mortal Kombat, Liu Kang. First, the duo go after Kahn. In a false show of loyalty, they killed the emperor.

Next, they went after Liu Kang, who could not cope with the power of the two, and had his soul stolen by Shang Tsung. The Thunder God, Raiden, knowing that the Deadly Alliance could destroy the world, has recruited Earth realm warriors to stop this new threat. They must stop, this Deadly Alliance.

Graphics - 7

The graphics of MK: DA aren't all that great, but they work well for the system, and you can clearly tell what is what. The characters are all sprites, and they work well with the 3-D world.

The menus do their best to recreate the ones from the console game, and they do a good job. There isn't much to talk about in the graphics section of things, it's pretty average.

Sound - 7

The sound of the GBA port of MK: DA does well with what the game has to work with, nothing sounds out of place, and everything sounds right.

Very little goes wrong with the sound, but nothing ground breaking happens with it too, so it gets a nice average 7.

Addictiveness - 8

Mortal Kombat Deadly Alliance has a good amount of replay value, not only is the game just fun, but the kyrpt, while smaller than the console games, has another stuff that you want to try and buy everything in it. Even after you have everything, the GBA game has a "survival" mode, where you fight an endless gauntlet of fighters, only gaining a little health in between fights, until you lose.

This game is a fun ride, and while it ends at some point, it will keep you hooked for a while.

Depth - 7

This game's shop, known as the kyrpt, has much unlockable stuff to buy, including two new characters.

Most of the game's depth comes from the gameplay, each character has two fighting styles, which they can switch at will for new moves to use. Each character also has a few special moves, that can turn the tide when used at the right time.

Finally, each character has one finishing move, that can be performed at the end of a match, where the game tells you to "Finish Him/Her!", and you must do a button combo to perform a finishing move, known as a "Fatality"

Difficulty - 3

Low difficulty is NOT a bad thing, it's a good thing. The controls work great on the GBA, and any hard thing doesn't feel cheap, it feels like you messed up.

All in all, this game is very easy to get into.

OVERALL - 8

This game, while not as good as the console ones, is very good, becoming even popular enough to get a GBA only sequel, called Mortal Kombat: Tournament Edition, which was released on August 25th, 2003.

Mortal Kombat: Deadly Alliance for the GBA is a great game, and if you fell the need to cause some carnage on the go, MK: DA for the GBA is the game for you!

kirbmanboggle : Thanks! I'm glad the work payed off, I loved this game when I played it, GBA and console, but I tried to be fair and balanced, and kept the Pro game rating (7 as average).

Thanks again.

Let's start off with saying... Incredible man.. This is you're first review I believe. It was... One of the best First reviews I have ever seen. You broke it up in to categories which is one of the most important parts in a review, But a lot of people don't realize that at first and some even don't break it up after 5 or more reviews.
It was long for a first review but the sound part was a little lacking in comparison to the other categories but still great job, I look forward to you're next review. I hate mortal kombat so I won't play this game


I see you're also A Wrestling fan. Maybe you can review a WWF game for the N64 or a wrestling game for the GBA.

imamonster : Thanks! Yeah, I plan on reviewing the GBA game WWE Road to Wrestlemania X8 next.

Sad to hear you hate MK, but I thank you for your feedback, and I hope I can improve as well.
