Knowledge is Power

My final (for now) Mortal Kombat pcb purchase is that of Ultimate Mortal Kombat 3. I never played much of this in the arcade, mostly the SNES, so I was never as into it as MK1 and 2.

The home versions of the game really don't do it justice. UMK3 is big, colourful and loud. Everything you could want in a MK game! The fatalities are for the most part rubbish and the computer AI is spammy as always but it has the most depth of any of the series up to that point. It's also great in two player which is the most imprtant thing.

Only one thing that I don't like about UMK3 is that there are no end sequences for the characters upon completion of one player - these are present in MK3. Is it enough to make me buy an MK3 board? Probably not but if the price was right.....

The pcb I got is a very clean, genuine UMK3 board with the final 1.2 rom revisions. The roms are not genuine, the seller kindly burned them for me.

Anyway, on with the pics!
