Hmm... I never read any reviews on Deception, so I wasn't sure. Is that version of MK 1 updated at all, or is it a straight arcade port? I'm basically curious if it's worth putting the $10 + tax toward that version, and returning this one when I get it.


It's a straight arcade port, but it's not that great of a port. It's only worth the extra money if you are a big MK fan or if you are a collector.

Mortal Kombat is out of stock now. There's always tomorrow probably for those that missed it.

Gotcha, thanks for the details about it. I was thinking the KE might be worth the extra cash, but if it's not that great of a port, then I'll just keep this one for $10 :)

They lasted longer than I thought they would, and they certainly lasted longer than Omega Strain (PS2).

Any reason to get this if I have the PS2 version? (besides the fact that the Xbox version has better load times and graphics and custom soundtracks)

Plus LIVE is better, but correct me if I'm wrong but I think you answered your own question...lol

Yeah, I was just stating the usual reasons the Xbox version is better than PS2 or gamecube. I wasn't suggesting it had custom soundtracks......

Glad I didn't have to worry about this one.

I just wish the GC version would drop down to $10 (or $20, I'd be OK with that price) already.

The GC version is cheap at either TRU, K-mart or CC. I forget which $10 or less though

2 Extra playable characters: Goro & Shao Kahn

There were also more characters available from the beginning without having to unlock them. I think this resulted in some additional unlockables in the Krypt to take their place, but I don't remember if it was anything worthwhile.

Midway couldn't just add them to the XBox version as well... *sigh*

Are you sure? I thought that was Deadly Alliance (but I'm not at all certain, so you could be right).

The added characters were to make up for the lack of online play.

Deadly Alliance is part of the current green tag sale at TRU. But I haven't seen any deals on Deception for GC, so I'm not sure what smick was referring to. I'd love to see a deal on the GC version though.

I'm sure it's online only. I called my local B&M EB about several of the games that tend to bounce back and forth (Zelda: Four Swords, Metroid Prime 2, and Guilty Gear Isuka before I finally bought it). The price in-store was always the higher price.

BTW, Deception is back up at $29.99. I'll watch it to see if it goes back down to $9.99; I'll for sure snag one if/when it does...

Sweet deal while it lasted, I bought this one right at launch. It's been a while, I oughtta fire this one up and jump on LIVE sometime over the next few days. I've been playing tons of the older MK's lately so I'll definitely be rusty when I go back to Deception. But if hundreds of people JUST bought the game, maybe I'll run into some easy competition ;-).
