Mortal Kombat 9 | Done

This is one of the games that I had gotten on a (summer?) sale a few years back on my xbox and had never gotten to it.  I was a fan of Mortal Kombat when it had come out in the arcades in the 90s but I hadn't really revisited the franchise since then. The sale seemed like a good opportunity to do so.

I played this game on Story Mode and completed the main story, but as with any game of this type, the content is re-playable. I thought the Story Mode did a good job of bridging together the narrative strands from Mortal Kombat 1, 2, and 3.  As a kid I didn't particularly care about the story, I just wanted to hear the announcer say "finish him" and emerge victorious in Mortal Kombat. As an adult I wanted to know more of the "why", and this game kind of answered many of my "why?" questions.

The only bummer is that this game is no backward compatible with the xbox one. I would have loved to have played this game a few more times, especially picking it up casually here and there for any random fight. Maybe once the xbox backward compatibility team gets back to BC work (after their work on the next xbox console concludes) I'll come back to this.  For the time being it's put away, and I can play something else :-)

This game was completed at the end of 2018
