Retro Games- Mortal Kombat Armageddon: (2006)


Mortal Kombat Armageddon is probably the most underrated game within the MK series.  The roster for this game was pretty big and along with returning favorites such Liu Kang, Scorpion, Raiden, Sub-Zero and others we also got to see many new characters from the 00’s.  While the plot for the game was okay the presentation which described it during the beginning was pretty cool.  Mortal Kombat Armageddon not only had nice 3D gameplay & graphics but it also included many interesting game modes.  One of the many game modes that stands out the most in Mortal Kombat Armageddon was Kreate a Fighter.  Mortal Kombat Armageddon was probably the first game within its series to include a mode where players can design their own characters.  Also, the Konquest mode was very interesting as it focuses primarily on Taven and Daegon who were two of the newest characters in the series.

If one was familiar with MK Shaolin Monks which was released a year earlier than Konquest mode was something that players may have found interesting.  Through Conquest mode players learn a lot about the bad blood between Taven & Daegon.  While some people believed that the story for Konquest mode was good others might argue that it was not as great as Shaolin Monks.  The Konquest mode in Shaolin Monks revolved mainly around Liu-Kang and Kung Lao and while some may agree it was fun others might disagree and criticize the who game together.  Those who are true MK fans must appreciate the amount of time and dedication that Midway had put into developing the game .  The roster for Mortal Kombat Armageddon was almost as big as MK Trilogy and along with being an action packed fighting game it also included a beat em up game mode for storytelling purposes.  Out of all the MK games that have been released Armageddon was definitely an underrated title that truly deserved remake.
