From the opening to the end of the trailer is pure awesomeness. It seems the whole trailer is an actual match between Sub-Zero and Scorpion. It starts with a cinematic entrance that flawlessly blends into the start of the fight with the Lengen - wait for it - dary "Fight" being broadcast-ed to start the match. It looks like Mortal Kombat is getting Environmental weapons and moves to use against your opponent in the latest installment. From the video it shows Matrix-like cut scenes for Critical Hits (ie..bone breaking x-rays and dislocations). It seems like there might be super special moves as well. Sub-Zero is showing off a charged up Ice Blast. Don't even get me started on how great the "Who's Next" track from Wiz Khalifa sounds playing in the background of the video. However I am upset that they show Sub-Zero losing and being decapitated, but it was done in style this time with Scorpion throwing his axe to pin (and what appears to be the final blow) Sub-Zero's head to the tree.
I have always been a huge fan of the Mortal Kombat original 3 games, but once they started going 3D with Mortal Kombat 4 it lost my appeal. Saying that, it looks way more refined and seamless since the original days of the video recorded actors I grew to love. I always hoped they go back to it, but seeing how the 3D universe is much better created in CGI then with Actors, I don't ever seeing this being a reality again. My final wish is that this installment will get the "Ultimate Mortal Kombat 3" treatment and have every character that has made an appearance in the MK Universe along with new ones.
I want to hear your thoughts and speculations about this!
