For a franchise that was once envisaged as a ‘star vehicle’ for Jean-Claude Van Damme, I’d say that Mortal Kombat has done pretty damn well for itself. From gimmicky pot-stirrer to serious fighting title, this gory story has undergone a truly gut-busting array of changes since its early 90s debut.

There’s the monstrous overlord, the good-hearted princess, the conniving advisor, a Bruce Lee wannabe, and more sorts of ninja than you can shake a shuriken at.

It’s Moooortal Kombat!
