I don't get myself. I mean, MK9 didn't play too different from the PS2/Xbox trilogy, except it was in 2D and had no switching to other fighting styles. Maybe people feel they're too slow or people are too used to the 2D games. I really thought that Deadly Alliance was quite an improvement compared to the previous MK games. It brought in dial-a-combos that didn't require you to be right next to your opponent. I personally enjoyed Deadly Alliance, Deception and Armageddon. What are your guy's opinions on this?
