Top 10 Best Mortal Kombat Games

The Top Ten
1 Mortal Kombat (2011)

This is like Mortal Kombat Trilogy in 3D with an awesome story mode and many classic things from costumes to awesome stage fatalities. I rate this game 10/10.

This is the first MK game I ever played, and after I played this, I tried more. None of them were better.

My childhood. I'm so glad my dad showed me this game, no matter how gory it is.

2 Mortal Kombat X

The Brutalities make this game the best in my eyes! Love the secret and alternative Brutalities... Love to give them at the end of a great long combo! It's ecstasy! And the guests are more than awesome!

It is the best game. It's the only one with variations. It has better fatalities and X-rays for sure.

This is way too low! This deserves to be at least number 3!

3 Mortal Kombat: Deception

This game has a good and deep story and is excellently designed. Konquest lets you explore all six realms, interact with almost every character in the franchise and many more, and explore many secrets to dive into the MK Universe.

The fighting was also a fun side of this MK, since it had the most developed MK fighting system of the 3D era, surpassing both Deadly Alliance and Armageddon. Arenas are designed so well that you want to be there. The massive content in the Krypt lets you know about the MK universe even more and inspires you with its glory, despite being a fierce and bloody fighting game.

Yes, MK erases contradictions between gruesome and beautiful, and the whole series is simply art. And Deception is the best at it. MKD even inspired Ed Boon and Co. to create the best MK game in the non-fighting genre, Shaolin Monks.

My vote is for this game. Sorry for my English.

4 Mortal Kombat Armageddon

What the heck? Just because a game has better graphics doesn't make it a better game. This is so much better than MK9. MK9 was a disappointment compared to this.

Come on, guys! You can create your own character, there are over 50 characters, each character has two fighting styles (weapon and fists), and there's a go-kart mini-game. I hope NetherRealm reboots this. Unless we have Soul Calibur V, which is very similar and also awesome. Admit it, this game is ten times better than MK9.

This game showcases every character. It even introduces new characters like Taven, Daegon, Meat, and Blaze. Every character has a unique fighting style and 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.

5 Mortal Kombat II

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

6 Mortal Kombat: Shaolin Monks

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

I've played it. It's got the best story ever. The fatalities are good too. The only bad thing about Armageddon is the fatalities there. Pretty bad.

Shaolin Monks should be #3 because it is great! The level designs, Easter eggs, level interactions, fighting technique, hidden features, and Co-Op mode make it unforgettable.

7 Ultimate Mortal Kombat 3

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.

A lot of characters, very fast fights that could be decided in a few seconds thanks to the great combo system. Galaga as a hidden minigame - loved it.

Dude, this isn't even close. UMK3 was not only the best in the MK series, but one of the best fighters of all time. Period.

8 Mortal Kombat Trilogy

Why is this number nine? Sure, the loading was a pain, but if you think about it, this game was amazing. I am excluding the N64 version due to limitations, but the game introduced many things. Plus, this is what MK9 is mainly based on: the trilogy of events that took place during and before Shao Khan's last attempt at conquering Earth.

In all honesty, they introduced Chameleon, Klassic Suits (excluding Klassic Sub-Zero, because he is a completely separate character, and is also Bi-Han, who is also Noob Saibot), BRUTALITIES in all versions, playable boss characters, Aggressive Mode, cheats like one-button FATALITIES, swift controls, and last but not least, B.S. AI.

This game is a hell of a lot of fun with friends, and I hope NetherRealm Studios remasters it, like they did for MK1, MK2, and UMK3.

9 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" 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, it rarely gets the respect it deserves. Characters like Hsu Hao have inexplicably become lightning 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.

10 Mortal Kombat vs. DC Universe

This is probably my favorite video game ever!

It's the only Mortal Kombat game I've ever played, but I'm thinking of getting more for my Xbox 360.

The Contenders
11 Mortal Kombat (1992)

The reason Mortal Kombat has had so many sequels.

The beginning of a legendary series.

12 Mortal Kombat 11

Cleanest MK game by far in terms of graphics and gameplay. The fighting itself, however, has been simplified, allowing for slower and more strategic combat as opposed to its predecessors, which were known for faster-paced combat, 50-50 mix-ups, and at times, an overwhelmingly large and more time-consuming move list among the characters.

In my opinion, better than MK9. Better story, more interesting characters, better voice acting, better visuals. It's just better.

13 Ultimate Mortal Kombat
14 Mortal Kombat Komplete Edition

It's the coolest game. It's got the coolest fatalities, and it's got Rain and Kenshi. The fatalities in Armageddon are weird.

It's the Komplete Edition. It's better than the regular version.

15 Mortal Kombat 1
16 Mortal Kombat XL

It's the same game as Mortal Kombat X, just with more characters. Awesome!

Love this game. Since I can't download it 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: two types, regular and gold edition.

17 Mortal Kombat 4
18 Mortal Kombat Mythologies: Sub-Zero
19 Mortal Kombat III
20 Mortal Kombat Gold

I think this is a highly underrated entry in the MK series. It is basically a souped-up version of MK4 with more characters, way more features, more secrets, more stages, and more fatalities! How is it rated lower?

21 Mortal Kombat: Unchained

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

22 Mortal Kombat: Special Forces

Good and great game for my Mortal Kombat collection.

24 Puzzle Kombat
