Mortal Kombat (Acclaim, 1994)

Based on the relatively famous arcade game of the same name, Mortal Kombat is a fairly faithful translation, though it suffers from quite a few problems of its own. Keyboard control is very klunky and often gets in the way of playing the game. The animation is a little slow and clumsy as well, and the graphics don't quite match those of its arcade counterpart. However, the gameplay and movement combinations are all identical, so you can play one and then take what you learn and apply it to the other. If you are a fan of Mortal Kombat, you will probably enjoy this game.
