Information about Mortal Kombat: Deadly Alliance

Mortal Kombat: Deadly Alliance, originally known as Mortal Kombat V: Vengeance, is a fighting game developed and produced by Midway. It is chronologically the fifth in the Mortal Kombat series. Deadly Alliance was released for the Xbox, PlayStation 2, GameCube, and Game Boy Advance on Nov. 20, 2002 (15 years ago). Deadly Alliance is notable for being the first game in the series that does not feature Liu Kang as a playable character. Also, it is the only MK game, to date, not to have stage fatalities. It is also the last game to feature both Scorpion and Sub Zero in their unmasked forms. Deadly Alliance was the first all-new Mortal Kombat fighting game produced exclusively for home consoles, with no preceding arcade release. Mortal Kombat: Deadly Alliance won the Best Brawl at G-Phoria.

Mortal Kombat has always been and always will be. For a millennia, the forces of good and evil have been locked in eternal battle over the control of Earthrealm, some seek to use the tournament to destroy all that is good. Others seek vengeance, power, or eternal life. Time after time, each individual threat has been vanquished, and Earthrealm has enjoyed relative peace for many years. But there is concern that Earth is once again in peril, and this time the threat of evil has two faces. It is now known that the sorcerer Quan-Chi has escaped the Netherealm. Since his escape, Quan-Chi has unlocked the secret of the ancient Runestone, discovered the ancient unbeatable army of the long forgotten Dragon King, and most disturbing of all, formed an alliance with one of our deadliest enemies, Shang Tsung. With their combined strength, they plotted to overpower the two beings who could prevent their total domination of the two realms. The first was the emperor of Outworld, Shao Khan. In a false show of allegiance, they sprung their attack. They then traveled to Earthrealm by way of a mystical portal known only to sorcerers and deities. There, they confronted Earth's mightiest warrior and champion of Mortal Kombat, Liu Kang. It has been Shang Tsung's desire to consume the soul of Earthrealm's greatest warrior. With Quan-Chi's assistance he achieved this goal... Liu Kang is dead. They have since returned to Outworld and are using the souls of conquered warriors to resurrect The Dragon King's unbeatable army. Should they succeed, they will have the means to conquer Outworld and eventually Earthrealm. They will be unstoppable. I can no longer stand idly by and watch this evil consume the world, I have relinquished my status as Elder God to return to Earth and lead you to battle against our old adversaries. We must act now, we must stop this Deadly Alliance! - These are the words of Raiden.

Gameplay

Running, as well as the running meter, have been dropped.
Characters now each have multiple fighting styles consisting of two martial arts and one weapon (with the exceptions of Blaze and Mokap, who only have three hand-to-hand fighting styles and no weapon style). In previous games, aside from "dial-a-combos" all the characters fought virtually identically, with only special moves to differentiate them.
Overall, the number of special moves per character (usable in any fighting style) has been drastically reduced, varying only from two to four for most.
While still limited to only moving into the background and foreground, movement in the third dimension is much easier and can be used continuously (in Mortal Kombat 4, one sidestep could be performed at a rate of about one a second).
Characters models are now more realistic. Flesh will move or jiggle on a character as he or she moves around.
To prevent fighters from leaving the arena, invisible "energy walls" appear when a fighter is knocked against the edge.
Environmental interaction is present, but infrequent. Several levels include obstacles - such as pillars or statues - that can be shattered to damage an opponent standing behind one, and one level (the Acid Bath) does damage directly to fighters that stray too close to special acid-vomiting statues.
There is just one Fatality per character, while the previous games included many ways to Finish the opponent (Animality, Brutality, Babality, Friendship).

Reception

Deadly Alliance resuscitated a series that had been waning since the late 1990 (27 years ago). Despite the success of Mortal Kombat 4, the franchise had begun to suffer from overexposure and mostly spawned failed and mediocre projects during this period. The animated series Mortal Kombat: Defenders of the Realm lasted for four months in 1996 (21 years ago). In Nov. 1997 (20 years ago), Mortal Kombat: Annihilation, the sequel to the successful 1995 (22 years ago) original, underperformed in theaters, while the live-action series Mortal Kombat: Conquest lasted for only one season in 1998 (19 years ago) despite strong ratings. Meanwhile, on the game front, the side-scrolling Mortal Kombat Mythologies: Sub-Zero was met with limited interest, as was Mortal Kombat Gold, although both games were good and received favorable reviews. The disastrous Mortal Kombat Advance and Mortal Kombat: Special Forces were the final straw for Midway, as MK co-creator John Tobias left the company in 2000 (17 years ago), along with several members of the company's staff, while Special Forces was still in production.

This unsavory chain of events led to the MK franchise going on a two-year hiatus, in addition to a five-year gap between actual fighting releases. Deadly Alliance was once expected to make its arcade debut back in 2000 (17 years ago), but Midway then decided to make it a direct-to-console game and it finally hit shelves two years later.
