Don't be fooled, fighting fans. Ultimate Mortal Kombat 3 is not the ultimate fighting game, but it does have some new features and fighters that should temporarily satisfy hungry Mortal Kombateers.
UMK3 supplements the MK3 lineup with Scorpion, Jade, Kitana, Reptile, classic Sub-Zero, Ermac, and Mileena. In addition to these arcade characters, Rain and Noob are selectable, plus there's one hidden fighter.
Sadly, the new fighters are all that make UMK3 a fresh fighting experience. The returning cast is the same as in MK3, with no new moves to learn -- even the combo system is identical! Players will quickly find the gameplay tiresome as they perform the same combos found in MK3. New features like the tournament modes, new Vs. codes, and Brutality finishing moves add only a little life to the redundant gameplay.
If MK3 had never been released, UMK3 would be closer to an ultimate fighting game. Unfortunately, UMK3 is just a slight variation of a game that has been completely played to death.
ProTip: After you defeat your first opponent in the endurance match, you can score a free hit when the second opponent 'jumps in.
The backgrounds and fighters are rich in color and detail, but the slightly choppy character animation keeps UMK3 from being a perfect translation.
Not bad, but the SNES's slow processing power, combined with missing frames of character animation, make a slight difference in the timing of combos and juggle moves found in the arcade.
Only a few screams of terror are missing from the arcade original. The rest of the voices and music are duplicated extremely well.
UMK3 is best enjoyed with a group of friends. Playing against the cheap computer is about as fun as getting your gums scraped by Kabal's twin blades.
The best way to beat the boss Motaro is to constantly use jump kicks and neck kicks to slowly wear him down.
