Got interested in this title recently, thanks in part to MK9 being announced, which I intend to try out.
So basically…this got an arcade release, as well as inferior ports to PSX, N64 with two good revisions on the Dreamcast (regular and red disc “2.0”) as Mortal Kombat Gold. Which also includes more characters and the ability to select weapons at the outset. As far as I can see, this seems like the bridging point between the 2D Mortal Kombats and the 3D ones.
I spoke to Black Shroud the other day over IM about it, and there’s a scene over in his country for it, but what about here? Does anyone still play like with UMK3? From our discussion, it doesn’t seem like the game is as horribly broken as the next-gen 3D titles, but I could be wrong.
Somebody fill me in on this game; I was thinking of picking up Gold for my DC and learning it with my crew to eventually post matches (irritated that there’s none on YT as far as I could see)…but if the game has some serious flaws I’ll reconsider that.
