Mortal Kombat is an extremely awesome fighting series, and it was pretty nice to know that it was ported to Nintendo's most best selling handheld. Ultimate Mortal Kombat for DS is good, just not as good as we all expected. You see, once you get the game, you are gaven two modes to play with, the average exhibition ladder, and Puzzle Kombat. The exhibition ladder is the average MK fighting experince. You face a ladder of opponents, until you face Shao Kahn, you win and that's it. You can also perform fatalities, which is actually quite good if you know how to perform them. This mode entertains for a couple of hours, but it's gonna get old EXTREMELY old very fast, just because there's no purpose to replay the mode continously, unless you want to play the harder difficulties. Then, there's Puzzle Kombat. Puzzle Kombat, along with exhibition, can be played with a friend, through Ds Download Play. Puzzle Kombat has changed much from its Mortal Kombat Deception original. It plays like Tetris, as you use colored blocks to earn points, to give your opponent damage. At the end, you perform a fatality to finish them off. Overall, UMK 3 for NDS is a good game, along with the Multiplayer options, for those willing to destroy their friends in Kombat, but might not be enough to justify a purchase for the HARDCORE Mortal Kombat fan, with the lack of modes.
