    It does for some reason I hate this but I liked Mortal Kombat Tournament Edition, depsite both being about the same. TE even had a new character created for it i think.

    I've never been too fond of it, not a big gore fan. Always liked street fighter better

    Deception is the perfect Mortal Kombat game, and the upcoming Shaolin Monks beat em up looks really good - I have the demo of it.

    Oh, and this one sucks [​IMG]

    well the only strictly fighting/beat-em-up type game I can think of on the gba that is/has been good is street fighter alpha (2 I think or something...) and maby one of the KOF games. All the others are .... naff.

    I think it was helped out more by the time it came out in, it was during arcades "second wind" so to speak, and a lot of games that were decent became much better.

    Also the characters were, at least initially, rather inventive, you didn't see people like the ones included here, and each had large fanbases. There were tons of kids I know when the first one who played without blood, merely because the didn't feel like putting in the code, so they didn't care about the gore either way.

    Also fatalities were unique, and it had a lot of secrets as a series, something fighters don't generally have. (Beyond secret characters, of which Mortal Kombat took part as well.)

    I happen to know a lot of people who still play Ultimate Mortal Kombat 3 from time to time, but they tend to be more hardcore hobbyist than I am.

    So while it wasn't ever going to really dethrone Street Fighter, it did compete rather well with it for a number of years.

    (For the record I prefer Street Fighter and King of Fighters, can't wait to play Neo Geo Battle Coliseum, but I remember how insanely popular the game was, even outside the talk of fatalities.)

    What I find really hard to imagine is that after taking so long for bringing stuff to Europe, they really think many will buy it here...
