He reaches into his stomach to crush an organ, but when the x-ray vision is gone his stomach is fine?

it LOOKS pretty nice, and i'm interested to see how this looks in 3D. but i just wish it was more fluid. i realise the clunkly half assed animations are a staple of MK, and that making the game BETTER would piss off MK fans. but it's a shame to see a game that releases in 2011 have animations from 1992. hell, MK was pretty poor in that regard back then, to see little to no improvements is a little dissapointing.

i was actually impressed with how fluid the animations are for a MK game. Looks nice in motion.

I would of still loved to of seen digital characters using this gen's tech though

There is a Video on GT where you can see that the Animations are all Motion Captured so i cant see what should be wrong with the Animations. But its not a PS3 exclusive Game so you have to moan ;)

lol, ok. whatever you say.

but jump animations that look like they're made up of a whole 5 frames are crappy in my book. you obviously have way lower standards, so props to you for being able to appreciate them.

LOL Maybe he just pinched and squeezed lol.

But seriously, it seemed kinda choppy. I felt as if the person playing couldn't combo for shit. I saw a lot of hesitation. A killer instinct this one does not have...

Yeah, I noticed that too. But then you have to think, this is a game about an inter-dimensional, duel to the death contest between mythological characters and creatures......so, a but of suspension of disbelief is required.

Anyway, it looks really smooth and graphically nice with the damage modelling and all, but I have a hard time getting into these fighting games. I can't stand the whole combo thing. When I am fighting someone and they go into one of those juggling combos where they can just hit you at will and you can set the control down until they are done beating your ass? Just not my cup of tea. Maybe there is some way to break out of them, but watching that video makes it look like if you give them a half second opening you are done for...

If those animations are really motion captured then I can safely say that their motion capture software sucks big time. At least fps seems fine.

it's very good

Say whatever you will, but the transition between animations in MK are terrible. They have this little weird looking twitch just as the character goes in to the idle animation and it's quite noticeable if you ask me. But it's still a big step up from the last few entries.

    GriftGFX There are too few 3D fighters anymore but I guess the genre shifted hard to 2D a while ago. (11 Hours ago)
