Let me get this straight: I ALBOLUTELY recommend Mortal Kombat. Great game then, still is a great game, and while I don't know about the other sequels, the 2011 sequel that is also on Steam is also a great game.

However, in no way, shape, or form recommend Mortal Kombat Kollection for one giant reason: Game For Windows Live. For those of you who don't know, it's an external DRM program that is not only a pain in the ♥♥♥ to set up, but also requires a CD code and an extra login, as well as slowing down the game itself. It's also set to shut down in July, so yeah.

If they patch out GFWL, I will delete this and change this to positive in a heartbeat. But until then... don't buy it.

The people commenting have not even tried to fix the game. It has the same GFWL problems as Dark Souls and GTA. To fix it, all you need to do is remove the GFWL that comes with windows 8 and then download the update from the Microsoft site.

Even though GFWL is shutting down soon, as it is right now the game works. Online is a bit ♥♥♥♥ty but playing with people you invite works perfectly.

The majority of people looking at this game are here because of nostalgic reasons. Since the early 90's the MK franchise along with Street Fighter and King Of Fighters were the staple for arcade fighters.

This port does a good job on staying true to the game play, my only complaint is that it has GFWL. It will be interesting to see what happens once GFWL support is discontinued, and if steam will host servers for online play.

Over all I would recommend this game for playing single player mode, or for playing with friends in person.

This game brings me back to my childhood, playing violent video games in the dark, waiting for mommy and daddy to toss some scraps under the door so I could eat.

I recommend this. The AI is joyfully unforgiving, couldn't beat the first fight. Guess I am not as good as I was in my childhood. Very enjoyable revisit to the coolest fighting game over all.

Games for Windows Live can ♥♥♥♥ right off though.

Just to be clear: I recommend the games that this package contains. Mortal Kombat 1 is more of a historical curiosity than a truly good game anymore, but it's still worth playing. MK2 is a fantastic fighting game experience that saw the MK series at its peak (just be warned that the AI in it is legendary for being ludicrously difficult). Ultimate MK3 is an excellent version of MK3, which, though it has numerous issues and isn't quite as good as MK2, is still an enjoyable fighting game.

What I *don't* recommend, however, is this specific pack. The MK Kollection (Arcade Kollection, depending on where you're seeing it) is a weak port of these three titles that uses Games for Windows Live as its DRM and for the multiplayer component. There are issues with the emulation, including sound glitches and seizing up of controls whenever you access the menu for the Kollection itself. GfWL is also a problem, obviously, and the multiplayer component itself seems completely broken from my experience. Considering MK1, 2, and 3 were all released and re-released across many platforms, you're bound to find better versions available.
