Mortal Kombat has to be one of the biggest franchises ever. Deception is not the third, fourth, or fifth game in the series, not even the ninth or tenth, but the twelfth game since the original was released to arcades over a decade ago in 1992.

Deception introduces several new features. Besides the basic fighting mode, you can play chess or a puzzle game, with a Mortal Kombat twist. Instead of simply taking your opponent’s pieces, you fight them. There is also a new “Hari Kari” feature, which is a self fatality, designed to give you the option of preventing your enemy from performing a fatality on you. And for the first time ever, you can play Mortal Kombat online over Xbox Live! With twelve characters, and twelve unlockable ones, you’re going to be playing this game for a long time.
