Mortal Kombat is a fighting game, the ninth installment in the Mortal Kombat series, and is a reboot of the original title released in arcades in 1992 and later ported onto fourth generation consoles.
Characters are rendered in three-dimensions, and fight on a two-dimensional plane. A Super Meter feature has been added, which is charged by performing certain actions in battle and allow special moves to be made. The game includes a Story Mode which is a retcon to the original trilogy, as well as a Challenge Tower, tag team fighting, and online play, with a roster of 28 playable characters.
Mortal Kombat received positive reviews, with an average score of 86% and won several Game of the Year awards in 2011, described by some critics as the best Mortal Kombat in the series, and offering plenty of nostalgia.
This 5-star difficulty, as always, does not include boosting. Aside from the many hours you'll need to put into the offline trophies, as well as the skills needed, the online trophies will only unlock for the true masters who can, for example, win ranked matches without jumping, or win ten matches in a row.
With boosting, however, the online trophies are much easier, and brings this difficulty score down to a low 4-star. While perhaps not as ridiculous as Street Fighter IV, you can expect nearly 400 hours of gameplay for the Platinum if you're boosting, and far more if you're doing it legitimately.
First, you can head into the Tutorial Mode to easily unlock the A For Effort trophy. Then jump into Fatality Trainer for the Tag You're It and License To Kill trophies.
Next, you can play through the story mode. This can be performed on any difficulty setting, and will not only unlock the remaining characters, but several trophies along the way as well, such as Halfway There, Back In Time, There Will Be Blood, Cold Fusion, and Quan Tease.
After that, you can start going through the arcade ladder with all the characters to collect coins as well as unlock a few more miscellaneous trophies. This can also be done on Easy, with the option of retrying whenever you fail.
Then, there's the tower missions. There are 300 in total, and will not only earn you more coins, but allow you to unlock more trophies along the way, such as Tower Apprentice and Tower Master.
Next, you can start working on the online trophies. These are extremely difficult to unlock legitimately, but much easier if you have a boosting partner. Either start making friends, or check out the boosting forums under our Links tab if you're having trouble. There are 13 online trophies in total.
With those trophies out of the way, you can start mopping up the remaining offline trophies, which unfortunately we left the more time-consuming ones for last. Particularly My Kung Fu Is Stronger, which requires many hours of gameplay to complete the set of objectives.
