Introduction, setup, requirements

The Mortal Kombat series has served as one of the most important set of fighting games since its controversial launch all the way back in 1992. While not much controversial by today's standards, the quality gameplay is still there in Mortal Kombat Komplete Edition, which just launched on Steam and will be hitting shelves soon.

Credit to this version of the game goes to High Voltage Software, which is interesting as they aren't known for their PC work.
