Greatest Mortal Kombat Games


The Top TenXW

1Mortal Kombat

Even if this was the game that gave mortal kombat popularity again MORTAL KOMBAT WAS ALWAYS BETTER THAN STREET FIGHTER.

This is like mortal kombat trilogy in 3D with a awesome story mode and many classic things from costumes to awesome stage fatalities. I rate this game 10/10 - Sabbath


Mortal Kombat Is not better than Street Fighter You Son Of A Silly Person!

2Mortal Kombat Armageddon

Amazing Game, I love it so much, every fighter, cool death traps, flawless. I'd rather play this than MK9 or MKD.

Most amazing game I've ever played it also has endurance mode which is my favorite thing ever

This game showcases every character. It even introduces new characters like Taven, Daegon, Meat, and Blaze. Every character has his unique fighting style and his weapon. It also has Motor Kombat which was super fun too. You can even create your own character. It also has a Konquest which was probably the best of them all. Screw playing online to be honest.

Armageddon is the best mortal kombat game ever made by far!

3Mortal Kombat X

It's a huge improvement in the series and is unbelievably varia table it should at least be at number one

This is way to low! This deserves to be at least 3! - LucyHeartfilia

It's the most creative one with the best fatalities

Should easily make the top 2 for sure!

4Mortal Kombat: Deception

Instead of being flashy and unnecessary, the Midway team took a step back and added an intricate story to this game, making it more complete than the rest of the series. - Wopwop

My favourite game in the whole franchise and maybe my favourite game of all time! It is awesome and the konquest story was 10 out of 10. I love the characters story and minigame,es like chess kombat and puzzle kombat.

Deepest mk game to date. It is also the most balanced and has the most interesting storylines in mk history. Can't wait for mkx

5Mortal Kombat II

Mortal Kombat II. The fighting system was a lot more strategic and relied less on combos and more on timing.

I agree mk 2 was better than mk 3 but its to difficult even if I play on easy its still hard

6Mortal Kombat: Deadly Alliance

The entry that saved the franchise from going the way of Street Fighter. It's doubtful that any of the subsequent games in the Mortal Kombat series would've ever come into existence if Deadly Alliance hadn't been the huge success that it was. The first chapter in the "Argus Trilogy", the introduced an expanded mythology, a colorful array of awesome new characters, absolutely gorgeous level designs, the introduction of the Krypt, and the best multitude of unlockables the series has ever had, even to this day. Sadly, tragically, the rarely gets the respect it deserves, characters like Hsu Hao have inexplicably become lighting rods of internet hate.(with no explanation whatsoever! ) Despite this, the importance of The Argus Trilogy and especially Deadly Alliance can never be erased. One of the most fun and innovative fighting games I've ever played, and arguably the most important entry in the series since Mortal Kombat 1, Deadly Alliance will always be my favorite Mortal Kombat game.

This game is simply put the most interesting Mortal Kombat ever made with my favorite bosses to fight. I would personally say this game is the best one besides 9.

This is the best Mortal Kombat game... No matter it was released 11 years ago (2002.). When I play this game it brings me back in good days of my childhood...

Mario Party 5 is better than Mortal Kombat Deadly Alliance!

7Ultimate Mortal Kombat 3

Great combo system and fast game play

Best fight game ever, speed is all that matters

How can this be as low as 7?! This and MKII are way too good. Only complaint, and it's really minor, is that this seems to take a lot of influence from Killer Instinct.

8Mortal Kombat vs. DC Universe

The coolest game ever with the mightiest warriors in all of the realms and the most powerful heros in the universe

It's the only mortal kombat game I ever played but I'm thinking of getting more for my Xbox 360

I get to live my childhood dream and kill the flash

This is probably my favorite video game ever! - Ajkloth

9Mortal Kombat Trilogy

I had Nintendo 64 and this game sucked on it compared to the ps version. - Sabbath

How can Deception be near the top?
The combat system there sucks...
MK1, 2, 3, 4 and 9 have great combat systems...

10Mortal Kombat (1992)

Is one from the best games ever made

The reason Mortal Kombat has had so many sequels.

The beginning of a legendary series.

The one that started it all

The Contenders

11Mortal Kombat 4

Best game ever. Like Minecraft I guest. Maybe no, what I was talking about?

This game started the decline in MK popularity... it kept going downhill until Ed Boon officially cancelled Mortal Kombat 8.

Then MK rebooted, and Mortal Kombat 9 came out and saved the franchise from being a mere history lesson. Now Mortal Kombat X is out and is the best Mortal Kombat game ever.

WHY is this garbage game on the list?

12Mortal Kombat: Shaolin Monks

The freedom of the game and all the cool easter eggs and secrets, and just the system of levelling up, the many different enemies that lead you to a boss fight in every realm, plus Co-Op! & there's versus mode separately!

Shaolin Monks should be #3 because it is great! The level designs, Easter eggs, level interactions, fighting technique, hidden features and Koop mode made it unforgetable

Shalon monks is the best it has a 2 player story mode and it is free roming

16Puzzle Kombat
17Mortal Kombat Gold

I think this is a highly underrated entry in the MK series. It is basically a suped up version of MK 4 with more characters, way more features, more secrets, more stages and more fatalities! How is it rated lower?

18Mortal Kombat: Unchained

Mortal Kombat: Deception left us wanting, and this gives us the finish
