North America Retail Box ArtMortal Kombat: Deadly Alliance brings the MK series a new 3-D fighting engine, adds tons of features and extras, and still offers up classic gameplay. This instalment features a 3-D battle system that still manages to maintain a 2-D feel. For example, pushing up on your controller makes you sidestep your opponent's attacks yet it also allows you to jump in the air by tapping up direction. A revamped fighting system offers up three different fighting styles for each fighter (one includes a weapon technique). The multiple styles provide countless variations of attacks for any given fighter. Different combinations of punches and kicks allow can be combined for very lengthy and powerful chain attacks similar to the Mortal Kombat of old. Fatalities are also back and are rich in graphic representation.New fighters join the cast of old favourites such as Sonya, Kano, Sub-Zero, Raiden, Scorpion, Johnny Cage, Jax, Cyrax, Kung Lao, Kitana, Quan Chi, Reptile, and Shang Tsung. The lavish environments surround your fighters with animated backgrounds and rich skylines. On some levels there are even breakable objects and hazards that you can interact with, such as pools of acid--the perfect landing place for a thrown opponent. In addition to regular modes of gameplay (arcade, versus, etc.), there is an option called Konquest mode. This mode allows you to learn more about fighting styles, read up on each character's personal history, and gain "Koins". The koins can then be spent in the "Krypt" allowing you to unlock a host of new characters, costumes, and early concept drawings. The additional content offered with this title is plentiful and yet it manages to also fit in special movies of "The Making of Deadly Alliance" and "The History of Mortal Kombat".Mortal Kombat: Deadly Alliance successfully reinvents the series by offering up a unique mix of improved graphics and stylised gameplay without compromising any of the features that made the MK series popular over the years. --Carlos Rodela
