Then again, if you're porting Deception, you might as well port everything the game had to offer and give the PSP players full value. All the characters, all the moves, even the Hari-Kiri self-fatality moves, plus wireless play to replace the original's online modes. If corners were cut, we can't find 'em.
Frankly, for MK’s PSP debut, we would have preferred just a handheld collection of the 2D arcade games, but we can't complain too loudly about Unchained. Midway took the one title with the most variety and replay value in the entire MK stable and shined it up nice. We’ll take it.
