Greetings from E3 in Los Angeles, CA. So far the show has been good, not quite the calibur of shows we've been to in the past, but for Mortal Kombat fans, E3 2004 has been a great venue for the MK franchise. Midway has eight stations with MK: Deception playing on widescreen flat panels, four Xbox, four PS2. Also, Microsoft's booth has four stations of MK:D on Xbox.
So far the response from everyone who has played or seen the game has been overwhelmingly positive, with the interactivity of the backgrounds grabbing the most attention. Gameplay fundamentals seems to be similar to the foundation of MK: Deadly Alliance.
Along with Deception, Midway Arcade Treasures 2 is on the floor, with only 3 total games available: Total Carnage, N.A.R.C., and Mortal Kombat. MK is a direct port of the arcade version and plays truly to the original.
Due to time crunch issues, we will bring you our full impressions of Mortal Kombat: Deception and Midway Arcade Treasures 2 on Friday evening.
