I was pretty disappointed with Shaolin Monks, and any game in the MK world that tries to be different (Sub-Zero Mythology) usually tanks.Can't wait to play it!! Shaolin Monks on PS2 wasn't a straight-up fighting game, but it was a seriously deep dive into MK2 world and a very awesome dive at that. When all the other MK games came out, I haven't really wasn't interested in them, but I am in this one.
I bought Shaolin Monks because it was on sale cheap and was really surprised by it. At first it seemed kinda dull, but once I got deeper into the game, it went better. They really followed MK2 storyline well if not exact. The only thing is you could only be Liu Kang or Kung Lao.I was pretty disappointed with Shaolin Monks, and any game in the MK world that tries to be different (Sub-Zero Mythology) usually tanks.
Did you play MK vs. DC? While it was a bit silly, for me to have my favorite comic character (Green Lantern) square off against my favorite MK characters, made up for it.
