Sports video games are designed to simulate the real-world sports. Most modern sports have their video game counterparts, including team sports, combat sports, and motorsports and even extreme sports. Games like Madden NFL series focus on actually playing the sport, whilst others focus on strategy and sport management (e.g. Championship Manager). Some top games (like the FIFA franchise) can even emphasize both aspects.
Sports game genre has been very popular throughout the history of video games. The reason behind this is a high competitiveness just like with real-world sports. Best sports games are physically and tactically challenging, and they’re often testing player's accuracy, precision, and reaction time. Most sports games try to model the athletic characteristics required by that sport, e.g. strength, speed, stamina, accuracy, etc. Just like their respective sports, these video games take place in a pre-defined stadium, track or arena.
Games Republic is a place where every PC gamer can find the perfect game. Only the best sports video games. Only the best prices.Mortal Kombat is a legendary video game franchise. Nobody can deny that! Created and developed by Midway in 1992, the series quickly amassed a very big and loyal fanbase. Few people know this, but the first game was created because a different one (featuring Jean-Claude Van Damme) was canceled. Instead, Midway developed a fantasy-horror fighting game and the Mortal Kombat brand was born. The original game has spawned many sequels and has spun a massive media franchise. Currently, it consists of several action-adventure games, movies, and TV series (both live-action and animated). Other spin-offs include comic book series, a card game and even a distinct line of toys.
Mortal Kombat is currently one of the most successful fighting franchises in the history of video games (along with Street Fighter and Tekken) as well as one of the highest-grossing media franchises of all time.
It goes without saying that Mortal Kombat has a reputation for high levels of gore and violence. The finishing moves (called Fatalities) were actually one of the main reasons behind the creation of ESRB video game rating system.
Mortal Kombat is a must-have for every fighting game maniac. Brutal, thrilling and incredibly fun to play. Get your own copy on Games Republic and join the ancient tournament.Hide
