I love videos games, and Mortal Kombat has to be one of my absolute favorites. This is why I decided to try the Mortal Kombat Arcade Kollection. If you are interested in an honest opinion of this, it would be wise to keep reading.
The first issue I had was the fact that I tried downloading this game on a system that has Windows 10. It was not compatible at all and would not work. After doing some research, I realized that this is because you need to use an OS that is a bit older. Luckily for me, there is an old computer in my den that has Windows 7. After downloading it there, things worked just fine.
I was really happy to see that the graphics were low res. I know that many people like the idea of things being so slick and sharp these days, but the look of this game brought me back to another time. I played with a friend of mine, and he complained about the way it looked the entire time, but I thought it looked great. Anyone who is a fan of the original games will certainly enjoy this.
There were a few times when the sound did not work well. At first, I thought there was something wrong with my system, but when I went to play this at my brother’s house, I realized that it is a problem that has nothing to do with me. It was not a dealbreaker, and it did not make me take the game and turn it off, but it was a little aggravating. Another thing I noticed was that some of the sounds I recall from playing years ago were different now.
I tried playing the game with one of my online friends, but this was a huge disaster. It kept lagging so much that it was virtually useless. After trying to get it to work for over an hour, we finally gave up. That was disappointing since this is one of the things that I had been looking forward to when I made the decision to buy this game. Again, this is not the worst thing that has ever happened to me, but it was a real bummer.
I did like the fact that three of the Mortal Kombat titles were available. While I loved the second and third, I can honestly say that the original was not what I was looking forward to at all. Since making the purchase, I play the other installments much more than that one.
I am glad that I went ahead and made this purchase and even though there are some problems, I do not regret my decision to get it. Even if the sound is odd at times and I have to use an older OS to use it, every time I play I am taken back to a time when I was younger, and life was simple. That in itself is a solid reason to buy it.
