Everything I could want!

Reviewed By: Lantern jaw on 08 Dec 2022

When I think about the hours of play that I poured into the original MD port, wishing, hoping, squinting my eyes and pretending that it was as good as the arcade, THIS brings a tear to a middle-aged man’s eyes.

Every improvement, from Sub Zero’s stance to Shang Tsung clapping and turning his head in his throne is like a gift. All those changes…If you know, you know!

I’d even go so far as to say that all the menu options lift this above even the arcade.

I’m playing this on a PS Classic, but I’d love to get my old MD out and give it an original hardware whirl.
