Is it really the "Ultimate" Mortal Kombat?

Gameplay 8/10: Gameplay is probably the best thing about Ultimate Mortal Kombat 3. The fighting style is great for a 2-D game. There are a lot of moves for a combatant. You can even do some cool and powerful combos, which is the most challenging thing about this game. People will replay until they are pleased with their combos, they will play to try and get more hits in a combo. Moves aren't difficult to do. There are so many characters to pick to experiment with, which keeps you playing this game. Another cool thing about this game is the tournament modes, and 2 on 2 modes. Unlike many other SNES fighting games, Ultimate Mortal Kombat 3 has a unique fighting mode. The 1 player mode is also a little hard. You need skills to survive the game! The bosses are no push-overs, so to beat this game, you need practice! And believe me, this game can be addictive!

Graphics 8/10: The graphics are ok. Not bad for a 2-D game. But still, everything seems a little blurry and not sharp. Somehow, Williams was able to make the characters a little 3-D, which is rare in a SNES game. The stages also look a little 3-D, even a little realistic too! Many people don't pay attention to this game's graphics though.

Sound and Audio 6/10: This game only deserves a 6 in sound effects. There are some annoying taunts by some of the fighters. The stage music is a little plain and boring. The sound effects of the moves and hits sound messed up. But the reason for this is because the SNES is a 10 year-old system.

Story 6/10: Again, we have a similar story to Mortal Kombat 1 and 2. They should have at least changed the story. We do not want to have a Mortal Kombat with the same characters or story, it just gets old after one game. But overall, the story was average.

Overall 7/10: This actually turns out to be great after all. You can't find it anymore. Everything in this game is at least average, making it a game worth buying used or new. But it is addictive for a while, but when it gets too easy, you'll find this game useless. Then it is left in your house somewhere unknown, becomes dusty and you forget you owned this game.

Rating:   3.5 - Good
