Greatest Mortal Kombat Games


The Top Ten

1 Mortal 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


It's a direct upgrade to every other Mortal Kombat game. Best fighting game ever in my eyes - hiphopgod

2 Mortal 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

To me Armageddon was the best one of all

It’s got the coolest fatality’s

3 Mortal 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

Best graphics, best violence, only if it had a larger roster

4 Mortal 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

Has a great fighting engine, has great mini games, and has an amazing story mode. One of the best.

It is one of the best games. I

My favourite conquest! My top 4 games would go,
1. Deception
2. Mortal Kombat(2011)
3. Armageddon
4. MKX

5 Mortal Kombat II

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

The best of the arcade games

This game is the best game ever in my opinion. Mk 3 wasnt as good - Sabbath

This game finally has blood on sega genisis

6 Mortal 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

The list should be damn higher then it is this is the best game MORTAL KOMBAT devaloper has created love The CO-OP and boss fights.shoutout to MIDWAY studios.

My favourite "MK"

8 Ultimate Mortal Kombat 3

Great combo system and fast game play

Best fight game ever, speed is all that matters

This is the best mortal kombat game ever

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.

9 Mortal 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.

I like this one more than mk2

10 Mortal 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...

Yo mkda for the win

The Contenders

11 Mortal Kombat 4

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

MK4 = my childhood

I had so much fun playing this as a kid. It was my first MK!

It's the first mortal kombat that I had played and it must be the 10th and it's best than mk vs universe

12 Mortal 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

I get to live my childhood dream and kill the flash

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

13 Ultimate Mortal Kombat

The best mortal kombat portable game

Fun for ds

14 Mortal Kombat XL

Love this game since I can't download because I don't have internet I can just buy the xl game plus it adds more to the mortal kombat video game franchise same thing with resident evil 5 2 types regular and gold edition

This is a great game

It's the same game as mortal kombat x, just more characters. Awesome!

Just awful...Armageddon>This

& 2d sucks 3D all the way!

15 Mortal Kombat III

This game sucks

Really fun old Mk game

Mk 3 is better than mk 2

16 Mortal Kombat Gold

This game is awesome is better than mk4 even through it's the same thing but slightly better

This one is better than mk4 in my opinion

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?

17 Mortal Kombat Komplete Edition

This should be number 1 - Sabbath

It's the komplete edition it's better than the regular version

It’s the coolest game it’s got the coolest fatality’s and it’s got rain and Kenshi the fatality’s in Armageddon are weird.

18 Mortal Kombat: Unchained

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

A fun mortal kombat portable game

19 Puzzle Kombat

This should be taken out its not on disc form to buy

20 Mortal Kombat: Special Forces

Good and great game for my collection mortal kombat the game collection

One the best mortal kombat spin off games

I like this game
