Overall: my first impressions were WOW!!. Now that i beat the game in less that 8 hours its BLAH!!!.. Very cool moves, and combos, fatalities are very weak i.e, not very original, basically the same fatalities as in previous versions of MK games. like there is an arm rip off that liu kang does, which also jax does too in earlier MKs.
Gameplay: game play is pretty good, very smooth feel, and no load times. sometimes though there are places were its a bad camera angle and swithcing between camera modes won't help, or you can't switch to a new camera mode at all.
Graphics: graphics are standard xbox, except for opening movie, which is excellet, ninja gaiden quality. and the cut scenes are not too shabby.
Sound: good old MK sounds are back TOASTY!!!, music os ok, but nothing really new same old sword sounds and uppercuts.
Suggestions: make the game longer, more involved. sure theres a ton of secret koins to get, but thats not why i play the game, i want to play more of the MK RPG type stuff, who cares about the art pictures to unlock!
