    Is Ultimate Mortal Kombat 3 the same as Mortal Kombat Trilogy or not? I mean do they have Motaro vs Kintaro/Goro fights over there?

    MKII is already on the PSN for download, I know this because I downloaded it.
    I also know that it is one of the reasons I have come to the point where I no longer play games that I remember being great from my choldhood.
    I remember this game being great on the Mega-Drive, however i destroyed that memory by re-playing it on PS3. I don’t buy games from my past anymore, because those games were of their time, they are dated and poor by today’s standards
    Nostalgia is a thing best left in the past.

      I think it depends on what games you play and how you play them. I once tried playing MGS3 on my ps3 on a big hd tv and hated it. but now I’m a student and have an old standard def telly, which has made a massive difference. Last weekend, because of the psn being down, I got out burnout 3 and played that with a few mates.
      It was brilliant!
      although the graphics were dated, the gameplay wasn’t, and even those who hadn’t played it the first time round had a great time. I reckon if I got those same mates round this weekend and played MKII they’d have atleast as good a time.
      For me these games were always best played with a bunch of friends crowded around a tiny telly and in those conditions, the greatest games will always stand the test of time

        I however used a 40” TV to play MGS3 on on the PS2 just about a year ago and i loved pretty much every second of it – it’s all about the game. :)

      The biggest problem with MK2 is that the game from PSN (which I was also disappointed with) is a port of the arcade version rather than the console which means the difficulty levels are much harder and the difficulty curve is insane.

      LOL It can’t be nostalgia if it is left in the past. It would just be the past.

    A ReKommandable Kourse of aKtion.

    However, they should’ve done this before releasing the reboot (like capcom did with SFIV and SSFIIHD), it would’ve had more sales. With a better and updated version already out with pretty much the same characters, its a bit obsolete.

    I really don’t like the old MK’s, i bought MK2 from the PS store and i try to like it but really kan’t. I find it difficult to win, KPU seems unfair, predicts my attack too easily, that’s just my opinion though, maybe i’m just really bad at it (:

    I love MK9 though, awesome game !

    Got bored of MK9 quite quickly as I only found it fun playing against friends. With Brink,La Noire,Duke,Gears3 and Rage already on my list this year I will have to give this kollection a miss

      Wow I’m surprised you got bored of it, I found there was loads to do single-player. The story mode alone is superb (and lengthy), and you have the varied challenges in the tower as well.

        I agree with DrNate – It’s fun and it will be more fun with Meets and Online.
