Mortal Kombat 4 ver 2
a game by Midway
Mortal Kombat 4 has an update already? Yes, the game had barely hit arcades when we learned Version 2 is already on the way. This installment features the return of two much-needed old schoolers-Johnny Cage and ax-along with new moves, changes to old moves and new secret characters. As you know by now, Noob is no longer a selectable character. He and Ermac will probably appear in the game as special characters. As it stands, the Select Screen is the same, except in the middle you have (left to right) a strange, almost Jarek-looking character (name unknown); )ax, with cybernetic arms and all; and Johnny Cage, complete with his world-famous crotch punch.
In the version we played, the moves for most of the characters are different, but it is unknown if that will change, lax has a Dashing Punch move instead of the Dash Kick. Johnny Cage has all the same moves, but no fireball has been added yet. Furthermore, the weapons are now all different, and some of them have special attributes (For example, Sub-Zero's weapon can freeze you). The game also lacked endings and Bosses.
The gameplay mechanics for MK4 have been fully implemented. One of the complaints of MK3 concerned the button tap combos. These have been removed for the most part. You must now rely on skill and use of juggles. Each character has his/her own "pop-up" move that you MUST master to acquire more than five consecutive hits. Unfortunately, not all combinations that worked in the previous MKs work on the newest installment,
Last of all, fatalities are in full force. Most of the returning kombatants have revised versions of classic fatalities (Liu Kang's dragon looks incredible in 3-D).
