Originality...
03/08/2003 09:04 AM EST
In MK3 they went the right way (in my opinion) by adding characters liker Nightwolf, Stryker, Sheeva and Kabal... Which all had a special look to them, but then both in MK4 and DA all of them are gone! In stead they add Fujin, Bo'Rai Cho, Li Mei, and other "boring characters. They have no originality...
I'm shure you all disagree, but thats my opinion! Give me Stryker, Sheeva, Nightwolf and Jax's "gotcha"grab back, then we're talking.

To be honest, I disagree with you quite a bit. Characters like Stryker and Nightwolf didn't belong and don't belong in the world of Mortal Kombat. Stryker didn't have much of a connection to the storyline except that his city was taken over by Shao Kahn's forces. Nightwolf is also hashed in as well. His involvement in the MK world is just as bad as Stryker's. All he is is a Native American whose land and people were suddenly invaded by Kahn's forces. Sheeva should have never been created as well. They just took a couple of Kintaro's moves and gave them to her. She didn't have much of a storyline either. Kai is also a character whose storyline wasn't that well developed either. He wasn't that great of a fighter as well. Jarek is just a copy of Kano. Shinnok could have had better moves. Some of the male ninjas could have had more story development even though I like them all. As for Jax, I'd really like to see the Mk team bring back his Sonic Wave as a projectile instead of missles or a machine gun.

Okei.. I can understand the thing about their history and such, but what I mean is that they should bring back some more characters with a special thing to them, stryker was a cop, sheeva had four arms, kabal was this freak, nightwolf was an indian.. they were all special..

While Li Mei is a martial arts type, BO'Rai Cho is a martial arts type, and Kai, Fujin, Jade Rain, Ermac, and all those were just ninjas, soon we will not see the difference between any of the character in MK.. And I don't want that!

A shokan warrior in 3D would be cool. Think about having each button on a controller represent one arm. I see what you mean about special character's, but I felt MK2 had more 'special' characters than MK3. I didnt like Stryker or Nightwolf, but Sheeva was very cool, as was Kabal. I agree with you with Li Mei and multiple ninjas, but I like Bo Rai Cho, though his story is very boring and cliche.
