Mortal Kombat v. Street Fighter…Which fighter will come out on top??!!!

Posted by Colton "CAPTAIN PLANET!" Travers on Thursday Aug 4, 2011.


Street Fighter and Mortal Kombat are the epitome of the side view fighter, and have both been cherished games throughout the years by many devoted fans. I recently purchased Mortal Kombat 9 and enjoyed it quite a sum (with the exception of Shao Kahn). There is a pretty cool story mode and of course multiplayer fights are fantastic…I thought it was as good as I could get. 


Then I checked out it's metacritic score which was 84/100 and read some reviews that it received and realized that the game was only "okay" to critics on most levels. WHAT JUST OKAY?? I thought the game was fantastic. If this game isn't the best fighter what in the wide world of sports is??


I began to scour the internet searching for what critics considered the best fighter game and I found Street Fighter IV….WOWZA! I had played the game before, but totally forgot it even existed. The game got a 93/100 metacritic score and got overall "great" ratings…WHY COULDN'T HAVE SOMEONE JUST SAID THAT AWHILE AGO??!!


Oh wait thank you for not telling me, turns out that Street Fighter is way harder to play with an Xbox controller than Mortal Kombat is. 


Anyway, these two games have been in a deadlock for which title is the best, and it is heavily contested (look at the flame wars it starts on forums). So I decided to do a little bit off research on both of them which yielded these results: Mortal Kombat is definitely best to play as is on the Xbox 360. The controls are decently handled and combos are not impossible, making for a challenging yet fun game. Street Fighter is best for a PC. This is because the keyboard only limits a select few combos and ultras in the game. In addition to this the PC has a huge online following, and the PC variation of the game has a lot more content. 




Based on my research, I found I made the best choice for myself. With the lack of funds for a joystick, Street Fighter is best played on my keyboard and I now have the game on my computer. Mortal Kombat is a good game for the Xbox 360 and I that is what I have it for. Personal dilemma solved.


As for which game is better, I have heard nothing but Street Fighter from the critics and an large amount of consumers. I have played both games and quite frankly, I like them  both for different reasons…Unfortunately one of them had to win, and I chose (dddddddddddrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrruuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuummmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrroooooooooooooooollllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllll)




This is just me personally though, and I highly recommend both games in any gamer's library.
