Storyline

Fed up with continuous losses in tournament battle, Shao Kahn who had lost to Liu Kang in the Outworld tournament, enacts a 10,000 year-old plan. He would have his Shadow Priests, led by Shang Tsung, revive his former Queen Sindel, who unexpectedly died at a young age. However, she wouldn't be revived in the Outworld. She would be resurrected in the Earth Realm. This would allow Shao Kahn to cross the boundary lines and reclaim his queen. When Sindel is reincarnated in Earth Realm, Shao Kahn reaches across the dimensions to reclaim her. As a consequence of his action, the Earth Realm becomes a part of the Outworld, killing billions instantly. Only a few are spared, as Rayden protects their souls. He tells them that Shao Kahn must be stopped, but he cannot interfere; due to his status, he has no power in Outworld, and Earth Realm is partially merged with Outworld. Shao Kahn has unleashed extermination squads to roam throughout the Earth Realm and kill any survivors. Also, Raiden's ... Written by Anonymus

The MK series finally comes into it's own...
3 March 2008 | by Jim-DSee all my reviews

While the original Mortal Kombat set the benchmark for video game violence, it wasn't until the third chapter in this series that the gameplay finally equaled the visuals. The first two games relied wholly on massive bloodletting and digitized video characters to draw in players, but it was the third installment that finally cemented the MK series as a solid entry in the fighter game genre. The addition of a huge roster of characters, coupled with more special abilities and finishing moves (brutal "fatalities" and "animalities" alongside comical "friendships" and "babalities").

The story, or lack thereof, is roughly the same as the first two games, but this matters little when the true measure comes from the game's impressive playability. First time button-mashers and expert gamers will both find this game quite fun. While still not up to the high standard of newer generation fighters, MK3 provided an exciting gory romp with good controls and graphics.

If you find it on a "classics" collection, its well-worth the purchase.
