Only took me 15 seconds. I just hummed the theme music from the (horrid) movie and filled in the rest.

As a movie it was decent. As an adaptation it was pretty bad. Still above average for a film adaptation of a video game. Very few of those have been even watchable, let alone good.

100%. Such an awful game. Only famous for the controversy and of course for the gimmick of blood and violence. The movie actually wasn't half bad considering what it was based on. Though the sequel was heinous.

Did I mention I got 100%? Just because the game was awful doesn't mean I didn't spend countless hours playing it.

I wouldn't say that it was awful, but it did not age very well. The fatalities look kind of gimmicky in retrospect, and everyone's basic fighting style being pretty much the same and not resembling martial arts in any way is definitely a huge strike against it, but it was revolutionary for its time, and definitely solid competition for Street Fighter.

It was always gimmicky. Even to a 10 year old. We still had fun playing it anyway.

Games like Street Fighter involved skill while MK was a button mashing game. Sure, fatalities required precise input at the correct distance but that was second to the combat mechanics. I loved the game as a kid, owned a full sized arcade game as an adult, yet still recognize it was not a good game. It is, however, a legend.

Until he was chosen as the "main hero," Liu Kang was by far the most forgettable character, in my opinion. He was basically a generic Bruce Lee clone.

Imagining Nicolas Cage doing the Test Your Might minigames is probably going to be the highlight of my day.

If Reptile is in here what about Noob Saibot? Or was he in the 2nd one?

Second game, along with Smoke and Jade.

Actually now that I think of it, if you want to get super technical Noob Saibot IS in the first game, because he's the original Sub-Zero (the Sub-Zero in future games is his younger brother, I believe).

If I'm not mistaken I think reptile was only someone you could fight against as a bonus round after doing something special, don't remember exactly what it was. But I don't think you could play AS reptile and he didn't show up in the basic story mode. But he was in the game.

Happy it accepts Rayden as the spelling, but that should be what is displayed as we'll; seeing as how that's how his name is spelled in the game.

They went back and forth on the spelling back then. If memory serves, the arcade had it as Raiden, then it was changed to Rayden for the console versions and stayed that way for the next couple games.

I'm even more impressed if you're going off the Game Boy version, given that it didn't even have all the characters.
