TRMK's favorite IGN staffer, Douglass C. Perry, is first out of the gates with his review of Mortal Kombat: Shaolin Monks (Xbox, PS2). Luckily, Doug actually leaves his attitude in check and has some very intelligent things to say about the game.

The co-op game, however, is fun because you have to work as a team and talk to each other, creating a social experience very much like being in the arcades. Despite some rigidities and technical weaknesses, Shaolin Monks creates an atmosphere of camaraderie. One last set of moves I almost forgot to mention but proves the teamwork point to a Tee are the team attacks, which require you and friend to pair up for two-player attacks. It's a great idea that works well, and makes the co-op just that much more valuable.

We're actually floored that Mr. C. Perry actually took an objective look at Shaolin Monks and put away his bias for this review. Could it be possible that the almighty TRMK had some influence in C-Diddy's writing style? If you asked Doug himself he probably would deny that he even knew who we are. Regardless, IGN scores Mortal Kombat: Shaolin Monks a respectable 8.0.

Nobody noticed what he wrote also: Plus, just because Midway is so good to you, there is an unlockable demo of The Suffering: Ties That Bind, and an unlockable, full-featured version of Mortal Kombat II in there for the taking. A demo of The Suffering and the full version of MK2????? Can't this be true?

YES, YES OH GOD YES! Another good reason to buy it. *Ahem* it would make sense to some new people to the series anyway.

Yeah, that's pretty cool. To bad I won't be getting it for a while though.

The Suffering 2 demo was already to play, it was never locked. Mk2 was locked until you complete the smoke missions. Besides, the suffering 2 demo was out in last months XBOX and PS2 mag. In any case, this game was good.
