STORY
For nine generations, the Mortal Kombat tournament was ruled by the Outworld's finest warrior, Prince Goro. It was agreed that if the Outworld could claim victory in 10 consecutive tournaments, it would then rule the Earth. With the Earth on the brink of destruction, a new generation of warriors gathered and claimed victory. With victory in hand, warrior monk, Liu Kang, had now become the new champion. But his victory was short lived. He and his comrades were lured into the Outworld to compete in a second tournament. But Liu Kang and his comrades discovered an evil deception. The tournament was merely a diversion devised by the Dark Emperor, Shao Kahn, to break the rules set forth by the Elder Gods. The Dark Emperor would witness the reincarnation of his former Queen, Sindel. This unholy act gave Shao Kahn the power to step through the dimensional gates to reclaim his Queen and seize control of the Earth. This trilogy of events comprises Shao Kahn's final attempt at taking control of the Earth. (Story from the Game.Com system)

NOTES
(1) If you picked a character on the Right side (a male character) then you'll fight Kitana, Sonya, Mileena, Kintaro, and Shao Kahn, in that order. If you picked a character on the Left side (a female character), then you'll fight Sektor, Ermac, Cyrax, Sub-Zero, and Shao Kahn, in that order.
(2) The only way to finish off your opponent, after it says "Finish Him/Her", is by performing that character's special move.
(3) You must beat your opponent in 2 of the 3 bouts to advance to the next round.
(4) Shao Kahn can only morph into the characters you've already beat earlier in the game.
(5) There are no skill levels
(6) You beat the game if you get 8550 Points. If not, then you start over
(7) There was once a rumor that you could unlock play as Human Smoke and his face would appear where the timer is. This was just a rumor and was proven to be a fake.
