Mortal Kombat

Developer: NetherRealm Studios Publisher: Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment

The MK franchise has always been known for its gore factor, but the latest entry takes things to a whole new gruesome level with the introduction of ‘X-Ray Mode’.

It definitely gives a great sense of satisfaction knowing your enemy is crumbling from the inside. The character models also show realistic damage, with each combatant sustaining torn skin, exposed ribs and missing eyeballs as the fight goes on.

But will this cross the line with the Classification Board? If the fatality showreel we were shown is anything to go by, Mortal Kombat might have a very big fight on its hands...
