Mooortaaaaal Kooombaaaat! (II)

February 1995

X-Force #43

I don’t know about you, but Mortal Kombat was one of my absolute favorite series of games back in the day! I had (and actually still have, but just haven’t played in years) MKII for Game Gear, and while it was awesome, I don’t think I ever got particularly good at it. I’ll just blame that on the format – when you take a fighting game as rich and complex as this and have to scale it down for a portable system that only has two action buttons, it’s definitely going to lose a bit.

Mortal Kombat 3 (actually Ultimate Mortal Kombat 3) was the one I really got into. I had that one for Genesis, so that was as fully functional as it gets! However, when I first glanced at this ad, I thought it actually was from MK3 – I don’t remember MKII having Friendships or Shao Kahn at all! I guess I was just never good enough at it to get to see those…

Batman: The Video Game Series

February 1995

X-Force #43

One of the best-known and -loved cartoons of the ’90s has been turned into a video game! Yes, the levels in The Adventures of Batman and Robin are actually based on episodes of Batman: The Animated Series.

I actually had the Game Gear version of this (which I don’t think I ever got very far in), but apparently that’s an entirely different game from the SNES version. From what I’ve read, it sounds like the SNES version is considered the definitive one, so I’d be curious to see it someday. However, the Sega CD version (also very different from either the SNES or Game Gear versions), also has cut scenes that some consider to be a “lost episode” of the series – definitely something I’d like to check out!
