Mortal Kombat Advance is the Game Boy Advance port of Ultimate Mortal Kombat 3.
The game was released at the tail end of 2001 with the same character roster as its 16-bit counterparts. Due to the Game Boy Advance featuring only four buttons—two less than the six-button system UMK3 relied on—many special move sequences were consolidated or changed. The game's violence (namely, the amount of blood) was toned down slightly due to the Advances's younger userbase. The reduced memory of the Advance furthered limited the port: each character (except for Noob Saibot and the bosses) has only one Fatality and one Friendship. The final sequence, in which the castle of Shao Kahn explodes is completely absent from the game. Shao Kahn's Lost Treasures and Stage Fatalities were also cut. The Stages The Subway, Jade's Desert and Waterfront were not included and while the stage Lost Bridge appears in the background of the tower select, it is not playable.
Defeated by the warriors of Earth, Shao Kahn decides to resurrect the Queen of Edenia, Sindel. At this point he attacks the Earth with all his soldiers and advisers. The Earth is in danger, and Raiden assembles all possible warriors to counter this threat.
Mortal Kombat Advance was heavily criticized for a variety of reasons. The port's unresponsive and condensed control scheme (due to the Advance's four-button input) and the wildly increased CPU difficulty led to the game being near-universally panned by critics; Other complaints were targeted at the port's graphical downgrades and wonky hitboxes.
Electronic Gaming Monthly editor Dan Hsu gave it the first "0" rating in the magazine's history and in 2014, GamesRadar included Advance as their 13th worst game of all time. It currently has an aggregated rank of 33% at Metacritic. The poor ratings class Advance as one of the series' worst entries, alongside Mortal Kombat: Special Forces.
