Mortal Kombat’s remake came out of left field, and hit their fans in the face so hard that it grabbed the attention of the video game world. With the new Warner Brother Games, Nether Realms Studio consisting of the original creators of Mortal Kombat, they really set out to complete there goal, which was to give the game a complete overhaul while still keeping that bloody good old Mortal Kombat feel.

This among, the amount of characters to choose from (one a PS3 Exclusive, the online and local multiplayer modes, features new, and old to the series, and also let’s not forget some DLC characters which were released (cough Freddy cough Krugger) is the reason why every other fighting game that entered the ring for Best Fighting Game of the Year with Mortal Kombat this year didn’t leave alive.
