There isn’t any fatality in the new Mortal Kombat game, now out for the Xbox 360 and the PS3 that can be described to be the opposite of brutal. Every one of them, every limb-maiming, organ-crushing, head-spinning maneuver is downright gory and merciless.

Which is why we love it.

And hey look, Kitana's looking as sexy as ever.

The new Mortal Kombat has returned to its roots. It is designed to be reboot of a franchise that has in some ways become too complicated after it reached its prime in the mid 90s. And to brilliant effect. The controls hearken back to its arcade-y roots, the action is has been set back on a 2D plane like Super Street Fighter 4, and the game is fast, violent, and over-the-top.

Major gaming sites Gamespot.com, 1up.com, and IGN.com all agreed that this was a fighter returning to form, finding its balls back and showing the world why it was beloved by gamers the world over. Or it could be just, you know, the fatalities. Mortal Kombat takes it to another level in this game. And while every one of them satisfies the little sadist in every one, these 9 below are the cream of the bloody crop.

Kung Lao – The Log Jam

Remember those movie scenes where a guy is tied to a log on a conveyor belt moving too painfully slow to the gates of extremely sharp, death-dealing saws? That’s what probably inspired our hat-wearing fighter here. The fruitless struggles of the victim to escape his fate are the stuff nightmares are made of.



Scorpion – Dimensional Dilemma

One of the most infamous villains in the Mortal Kombat universe is up to his no-good antics again, this time making use of portals that take the victim to god-knows-where. It’s all the same in the end though, with the body dangling, mutilated to the point of being unrecognizable.



Ermac – Shrink Ray

This dude probably has the biggest ego problems in the MK universe, with his affinity towards shrinking his victims for him to easily step on and squash. Not even the mighty Kratos stands a chance.



NEXT: Johnny Cage makes a trophy case out of his victim

    Where's the reverse exorcism there? That's just a clown killing Raiden.

    To EDITOR: Criminally overlooked Raiden's just a scratch fatality... it starts by firing lighting bolts to the enemy's arms (severing it in the process) then the legs leaving the enemy completely amputated.. then god of thunder comes close...picks up the poor bastard and throws him/ her on the floor head first.... (look it up on youtube)
