|Put your fighting skills to the test in the Mortal Kombat Trilogy for the Sony PlayStation. At its core, the game is an enhanced version of Mortal Kombat 3. It offers new gameplay systems, new fatalities, and new characters. In Mortal Kombat Trilogy, Shao Kahn unleashes his ultimate plan: He will merge Earthrealm into Outworld. It's up to the warriors of justice, including Raiden and Liu Kang, to stop him once and for all.
Mortal Kombat Trilogy features almost identical gameplay as Mortal Kombat 3. Two combatants will go head to head in a battle of fists. You'll kick and punch your way to victory. While characters all share the same pool of regular attacks, each one has their own special moves. For example, Kitana will throw razor sharp fans at her enemies while Shao Kahn bludgeons opponents with a hammer. This version debuted the Aggressor Bar. This bar will build up over the course of a match. When full, players can move faster and hit harder for a limited period. This power may give you the advantage necessary to claim victory over your opponent.
At the end of the fight, you can pull off a devastating fatality on your opponent. These moves involve ripping off your opponent's appendages. Also new in Mortal Kombat Trilogy are Brutalities. These finishing moves involve you punching and kicking your opponent to death. There are also stage fatalities and even hidden fatalities to uncover, such as turning your foe into a baby.
Mortal Kombat Trilogy is sure to include some of your favorite characters, and the game even features every character from Mortal Kombat 3. It also features a handful of brand new characters. Classic characters such as Raiden, Johnny Cage, and Baraka were all added to the game. These characters featured new portraits, new special moves, and brand new fatalities. All of the boss characters from the previous Mortal Kombat games are also available right from the start. Players can play as the monstrous Goro, Kintaro, or Motaro without needing to use any codes. Lastly, each character in Mortal Kombat Trilogy features at least one new special move. For example, Kano now sports a devastating spinning blade attack. All of your favorite arenas from previous Mortal Kombat games are included with this title. Battle on any stage from Mortal Kombat, Mortal Kombat II, or Mortal Kombat 3. Mortal Kombat Trilogy was the last of the Mortal Kombat games to have a 2D fighting style. It was the last version of the game to use digitized actors instead of sprites, and these digitized actors feature an array of detail. This fighting game is even better when playing with a friend thanks to the included multiplayer modes. Due to its variety of both fighters and stages, this Sony PlayStation Mortal Kombat Trilogy game makes for a fun challenge.
