Mortal Kombat Master Post


Here are all the MK links in one place and a tier list now that I finished the series. What a completely bonkers series.

Mortal Kombat (Mortal Monday Retrospective, Arcade/SNES/Genesis/Master System)

Mortal Kombat II (SNES)

Mortal Kombat III + Ultimate Mortal Kombat III (SNES)

Mortal Kombat Trilogy (N64 + PS1)

Portable Mortal Kombats (MK1+2 on Game Boy and Game Gear)

Portable Mortal Kombats II (MK3 on Game Boy, MK4 on Game Boy Color, Deadly Alliance and MK Advance on Game Boy Advance)

Mortal Kombat Mythologies: Sub-Zero and Mortal Kombat: Special Forces (N64 and PS1)

Mortal Kombat IV (N64)

Mortal Kombat: Deadly Alliance (PS2)

Mortal Kombat: Deception (PS2)

Mortal Kombat: Armageddon (PS2)

Mortal Kombat: Shaolin Monks (PS2)

Mortal Kombat Vs DC Universe (PS3)

Mortal Kombat IX (PS3) - Part 1, Part 2

Mortal Kombat X (PS4)

Mortal Kombat 11 (PS4)

Mortal Kombat 11 - Aftermath DLC (PS4)

Mortal Kombat 1 (PS5) - Part 1, Part 2, Part 3

The Tier List - This is a really evenly-distributed series. The only really bad games are the spinoffs, and it went through kind of a "Mid" era in the middle there (I may be selling MK Gold short). The cheating computer in UMK3 and MKT really messed up what should have been two of the better ones. Everything in the top two tiers is really good and worth playing. I'd give the overall duke to MK2 for the early series and MK11 for the later series, though MK9 and Shaolin Monks are both really excellent recreations of the beginning of the series.

  1. It's fascinating to see the evolution of the Mortal Kombat series through these classic titles. From the groundbreaking release of the original Mortal Kombat, which sparked controversy and captivated audiences with its innovative gameplay and bold graphics, to the refined gameplay and expanded roster of characters in Mortal Kombat II and III. Ultimate Mortal Kombat III added even more depth and complexity to the series, offering fans the ultimate fighting experience. Finally, Mortal Kombat Trilogy brought together the best elements of the series, delivering a comprehensive and memorable gaming experience on multiple platforms. As you reflect on the series as a whole, it's clear that Mortal Kombat has left an indelible mark on the gaming industry and continues to be beloved by fans for its unique blend of action, storytelling, and, of course, over-the-top violence.
