<a href="http://ps2.ign.com">IGN.com</a> updates their pre-show <b>E3</b> coverage with a <a href="http://ps2.ign.com/articles/613/613234p1.html">preview</a> of the playable build of <a href="/games/mksm">Mortal Kombat: Shaolin Monks</a> to be shown at <b>E3</b> this year.
We could be going out on a limb by saying this, but Shaolin Monks should turn out to be really darn good. We know, it might sound crazy to some of you -- the same some that have played Mythologies and Special Forces on PSOne and wondered aloud, "Why would Midway try and change Mortal Kombat into whatever the heck these games are?" We thought the same thing. Both of those titles were less than desirable Mortal Kombat spin-offs. But Shaolin Monks... Ooh, Shaolin Monks feels solid.

Also, don't forget to check out IGN's 8 new gameplay <a href="http://media.ps2.ign.com/media/709/709115/vids_1.html">videos</a> featuring some co-op and single player action.
Hmm I think that SM may truly be a really damn good action-adventure game. I think that it may catch the eye of even non-MK fans.

It appears that these videos are just pieces of the Official Trailer that Gamespot released yesterday.

These are different and longer sequences than the GameSpot sizzle reel.
