Mortal Kombat: Armageddon review

Consider this one a cleansing bloodbath

They're also not the only thing you'll get the chance to construct. After years of wishing, the Kreate-a-Fighter option has finally materialized and it was worth the wait - especially if you like Street Fighter games, as you'll find the look-alike parts of several famous Capcom characters lurking in the custom options. Name them as you see fit, use koins to unlock new attacks and clothing, then jump online and battle other players with your completely personalized deacon of destruction.

But why stop at killing your friends with mere fisticuffs? Motor Kombat, a knowingly silly but extremely playable kart racer, comes on the disc for free. See your favorite Kombatants use their trademark attacks on the racetrack - Bo Rai Cho pukes on enemies, Raiden shocks them with electricity as he passes. You'll outright kill opponents by bashing them off the track or leading them into deathtraps. It's ridiculous. It's eight-player online. It's awesome.
