staffer, Douglass C. Perry, is first out of the gates with his review
of Mortal Kombat: Shaolin Monks
). 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
