Mortal Kombat X: Throwing Back To Mortal Kombat 4/Gold!

While I'm waiting for Mortal Kombat X to come out for the last generation consoles, now it's time for me to do some analysis on Mortal Kombat X's throwback to the very classic games Mortal Kombat 4 and the upgrade (and sadly Dreamcast only) Mortal Kombat X.  Now it's time to take a look shall we?

Goro is the sub-boss (But come on Ed Boon, did you have to make it PRE-ORDER BONUS than just make him playable by a cheat code?!) and Shinnok is the final boss.  The whole plot is a remodified version of Mortal Kombat 4/Gold although you might notice, not everyone from Mortal Kombat 4 made it right into this game right?  Still, I cannot help but think that Goro as the sub-boss and Shinnok as the final boss is just overly predictable.

If you remembered in Mortal Kombat 4/Gold, you could pick up objects that were lying around in an otherwise very difficult to maneuver 3D plane.  Mortal Kombat X like its direct predecessor uses a 2D fighting plane but there are now stage interactions.  You can use certain walls to bounce or two, you can throw certain objects that your opponent.  Pretty much of a shoutout to Mortal Kombat 4/Gold isn't it?  Just observe the video above as a sample of what you are getting.  I thought this feature was cool and all.  Sad to say, where are the freaking stage fatalities?  I wanted to toss somebody into the lava or off from the Sky Temple like it was in Mortal Kombat Deception and Mortal Kombat Armageddon!

Mortal Kombat X now features the "Easy Fatality" which you must unlock at the Krypt and I think you get more, the more you play.  So I'm not telling you because there are various video game guides.  I'm more of a critic than a guide, I'm a casual gamer not a die-hard one.  Moving on, Mortal Kombat 4/Gold had the "Easy Fatality option in the cheats menu.  Here you can either buy (please don't) or slowly unlock them but first you must unlock the three easy fatalities at the Krypt.  I just wonder if this feature is cool or not considering that while I was always a one button cheater in later MK games, but in Mortal Kombat (2011) I was able to pull off most fatalities without much of a problem compared to the old MK games.  You may also notice that the way cameras move during fatalities is pretty much a throwback to Mortal Kombat 4/Gold where you see the mutilated corpse instead of the opponent doing a victory pose for most of the time.
