Fun for the whole (or recently dismembered) family

The games I have been wanting to rent have really been piling up. I guess that is a result of the fact that like half the games that come out in a given year come out in Oct-Dec. Anyway, one game that I knew I would have to try is Mortal Kombat: Deception. As you can quickly read below, Mortal Kombat is a personal nostolgic favorite of mine. This game is really cool, because it is like 4 games in one. It has the typical arcade mode of fighitng up the ladder, but it also has Konquest which is a super advanced tutorial/adventure, rpg type of game. It is really cool because if anything it gives an actual for real story to a fighting game. On top of that, there is also Chess Kombat. Which is cool because it plays on a chess board with Mortal Kombat people and you fight for the squares, with the goal to capture the king. While this is just a "side game" it blows away Wrath Unleashed which has the same concept has the basis for the game. Finally, there is Puzzle Kombat. Imagine, a heavily modified version of Dr. Mario with big-headed Mortal Kombat people at the bottom beating the living daylights out of each other in sequence with how well you are doing. On top of that the game has 400 unlockables. This is really a good couple game for us in my opinion. Because Abigail will be happy because she will get to beat the crap out of me in the puzzle game, and then I return the favor in the acutal combat section. It is a win-win situation.
