what where the best home versions of the first 3 Mortal Kombat Games?

>> No.4746224

1- Genesis
2 - SNES. Saturn and PS1 versions play catch up later
3 - Genesis/SNES (You're missing some stuff, but hey there's no load times)
Trilogy - PS1/Saturn

>> No.4746228

MK1 Genesis
MK3 None, it's MK3.

It's true that SNES MK2 is better than Genesis, but the 32X version beats them both.
I'm quite confident that MK2 32X is the best home console version of the game.

Honestly I don't know, I'm not aware of anything having to do with xbox.

Lol sorry I actually took you seriously when you said it was the best and was curious uf there was something special about it. We don't all live in the past.

I know it can't be improved, so the best this Xbox live version could be is "exactly the same."

16 bit - severely reduced sprite size but play good
32 bit - have loading times and sometimes in the match too
newer than 32 bit is emulation

mk1 on the genesis is fucking shit. The characters have literally 2 frames of animation and the sound is fucking horrible. Also the backgrounds look like shit as well. Sega cd could've been better if they didn't fuck up the background music order.

>> No.4747023

>32X version beats them both
>t.sega fan boy
its characters are *slighty* better in resolution, but it kept the exact same low color genesis backgrounds and shit sound/music. a lazy shit port that still maxed out what the 32X could do


>> No.4747046

yes but the SNES one is still worse somehow

>> No.4747101

I don't care for the older ports on Genesis/32X or SNES. I prefer the PS2 Midway Arcade Classics versions of MK2 and MK3 because they're near perfect emulations of the arcade versions

It's MK1 though so who really cares? 2 is the only semi decent game in the series.

>> No.4747426

That video proves the 32X version looks better. I don't see how it's "sega fan boy"ism to say that the SNES version is better than the Genesis version though.

>> No.4747429

If you want emulation of the arcade version, just play in an emulator.

>> No.4747436

As opposed to a shitty 16bit console port or a disk based one with horrible load times?

2 is the only good retro Mortal Kombat.

Mortal Kombat (9)/Mortal Kombat (2011) is the only good modern one. X was okay.

Armageddon was a fucking terrible broken shallow game. They shrunk the moveset of all the characters to squeeze 60+ roster. Deception and Deadly Alliance aren't perfect but are good casual fighting games.

>> No.4747583

as if all mk's aren't broken and shallow and have more than 2 moves worth using.

>> No.4747586


If you can even do the moves, it always had the most bizarre control scheme in the history of fighting games IMO. Instead of a half circle forward, it's pull your joystick down, then push forward like a fucking 4-way pac-man.

>> No.4747591

why would you not be able to do down-forward? They did that specifically to lower the execution barrier.

MAT2 ports aren't Arcade perfect. Game runs at noticably faster speed.

I think UMK3 on DS is the only perfect (or nearly) MK port ever

>It's MK1 though so who really cares?
anybody playing the game I would assume

>> No.4749806

The only true way to feel the difference is to play these in real back to back.

For its limitations, SNES felt like something special, even if we it kept the shitty cheating AI, but at least they included a super strenght cheat and a 30 continues one.

>> No.4749897


Xbox Live Arcade port for UMK3 was basically arcade perfect with minor issues, but it's been removed.

MK Arcade Collection has input lag and runs at incorrect speed, which are the same issues found in MAT2 ports of MK2 and MK3.

I remember having a lot of fun with my friends with MK2 on the Mega Drive back then. I don't know why, but when I tried the arcade game I thought it was much less fun (and has a worse soundtrack too)

it was in the wrong order, but was good quality at least

>> No.4752490

not only is the order wrong, but some tracks play twice like the pit. The iso is only like 350mbs. Why the fuck couldn't they at least put all the tracks in which would make it easier to rearrange?

What's wrong with MK3? I see a lot of posts shitting on it.

>> No.4752542

Nothing was wrong. Some MK2 fans didn't like it but it was mostly casuals, also MK2 came out at the peak of 16-bit consoles. MK3 came out at the end and the home ports sucked.

MK3/UMK3 (Arcade) is faster, more balanced and has deeper gameplay. MK2 matches are projectile spam the entire match.

>> No.4752840

is it not? I would say that it is

point taken to some extent but it's nowhere near MK3's level of slapstick. if they'd stuck closer to mk2's design style nobody would argue about which one is best.

I will deffinitely grant that it got more over the top as it went and friendships and babalities are even more silly. I just don't think the first one took itself seriously either and it's always been about campy gore.

I deffinitely agree MK2 hit the sweet spot.

I think MK3's problems have more to do with mechanics than tone though.

Doesn't flippin matter they're still the best official versions on home platforms mcfuckin deal with it or go right the hell back to /v/ or /tv/ pick your poison because either way you're inhuman garbage.

>> No.4754039


The campy over the top feel of the 2d games were what made them so fun to play, especially compared to the new one. You have fatalities where someone gets uppercut so hard they explode and 9 legs, 3 ribcage, 6 skulls and 14 arms just fly all over the place. The goofyness tempered the violence and made them much more fun than anything since 4.

>> No.4754042

Who gives a fuck about official or not? I just want to play the most arcade accurate version I can at home. That makes me inhuman garbage? Lol
