I got the new issue of XBN, and the demo disc had Mortal Kombat: Shaolin Monks (as well as Rainbow Six: Lockdown multiplayer only and the Incredible Hulk [which was fun, if a little chaotic]).  The graphics are pretty lame.  Its gameplay is simple.  And yet I really enjoyed it.  For one thing, the fighting brings up fond memories of Double Dragon and the like, though it's a little more varied than that.  There's a definite platform element, too.  And (and for me this is really great, though your mileage will probably vary) there's a secret in every room.  I also found the boss fight against Baraka to be fun (in a typical stage-based, what-strategy-to-use way).  It reminded me a lot of Duke Nukem: The Manhattan Project, which I think was a missed gem.  Am I crazy?

Never played it, i havent even played the Mortal Kombat: Deception yet. The price too high. I look forward to playing Shaolin Monks tho, even tho i have to wait till the price drops to 9.99 so i wont be playing the game for a long long time.

Speaking of Duke Nukem Manhattan , i own that game, i  love the first level where you have to jump from root top to root top is fun.

I got to play it quite a bit during a party before E3 and I enjoyed the heck out of it.  I couldn't hear anything because of the DJ but it was a lot of fun to play co-op.  I don't think the appeal would be the same single player...but its hard to say without trying it.

Don't forget who played it along with you.

It is set in the time period of MKII, and it looks like it will be a lot of fun from the demo we played.  I'm looking forward to this one, and it should be better than the Sub-Zero game or Special Forces.
