The first 3D Mortal Kombat game, Mortal Kombat 4, is now available on GOG and is DRM-free

Warner Bros has released Mortal Kombat 4 on GOG. Mortal Kombat 4 is the first 3D Mortal Kombat that NetherRealm Studios created. Of course back then Ed Boon’s team was known as Midway Games.

As with all GOG releases, Mortal Kombat 4 is DRM-free. It also works on most Windows operating systems, so most of you won’t have any trouble running it.

Now my biggest gripe with the PC version is that it’s basically a port of the Playstation version. As such, most of the fighters look blockier than their Arcade or SEGA Dreamcast counterparts. Not only that, but there is an annoying black line surrounding the blood effects that was mainly present in the 3DFX version.

In short, this isn’t an arcade-perfect release. Still, it has those infamous CG endings, so that’s at least something.

But anyway, those of you that want to relive Mortal Kombat 4 PC can get it from here.

While he is a die-hard PC gamer, his gaming roots can be found on consoles. John loved - and still does - the 16-bit consoles, and considers SNES to be one of the best consoles. Still, the PC platform won him over consoles. That was mainly due to 3DFX and its iconic dedicated 3D accelerator graphics card, Voodoo 2.
