Fast forward 15 years, skipping a number of questionable titles in the franchise… We arrive at the glorious Mortal Kombat 9, which fully revived fans’ faith in Mortal Kombat! Retelling the story of the first three games, and having only those characters we know and love, plus Quan Chi (DLCs, etc. not withstanding), the new Mortal Kombat truly went back to the series’ roots and was a great effort to recreate what made the first three so great, while also bringing the gameplay on par with contemporary fighters. It was an amazing success, it won back the old fans and brought many new in. The soundtrack, while not as captivating as the days of old, still had some nice remixes, like the song I’ve chosen for today, “Armory”.
Composers: Dan Forden, Dean Grinsfelder
