Cool Videos: Finish Him! Check out Freddy Krueger's fatalaties from Mortal Kombat 9

Aug. 11, 2011by:

If you haven't heard, Freddy Krueger is a new downloadable character in MORTAL KOMBAT 9, debuting Tuesday on both Xbox Live and the Playstation Network. If you want to know if you're getting your $4.99 worth to buy Freddy, take a look at the video below to see some of Freddy's moves and, most importantly, his fatalities.

I'm surprised the design hews a little closer to the Jackie Earle Haley version of Freddy than the classic Robert Englund design but I'm guessing that came with the rights to the character. The game producers have said they'd also like to get Jason Voorhees, Leatherface and Michael Myers as characters if the Freddy version is successful. What do you think?

He's great in the game. He's kind of hard to get used to. his move set is pretty difficult.

I don't even care for Freddy but I think it is cool they put him in the game. I can't see the other slashers being as good though. I would rather see them put in Robocop or The Terminator or somthin.

This new MK game was pretty fun, but I gave up on keeping it long term when I found out a single DLC character would be $5. Very cool idea with Freddy and if they actually have the rights (or can somehow get the rights) for all of those other characters, why not make a fighting game exclusively with horror icons? I'd buy that.

He was there all along...

"The game producers have said they'd also like to get Jason Voorhees, Leatherface and Michael Myers as characters if the Freddy version is successful."

The funny thing is, having downloaded all the new characters for MK, they were all a few MB's worth of info to download. Freddy, however, was only 100 kb, which means he was absolutely in the game already and you are just dl'ing unlock codes for your system. So it's entirely possible that Jason, Michael and Leatherface are already on there,

As for Freddy, he's actually one of the best characters in the game, and is (so far) the best DL-able character by far. His moves are fluid, fast and devastating, with insane combos. Definitely worth the $5.

I can't see why this would get a negative feedback....

Ummmm...

Why does Freddy have a glove on his left hand??? Did they actually create Wolverine for the game and just re-skin him or something?

I've always wanted a slasher icon fighter game - Jason, Michael, Freddy, Leatherface, Pinhead, Warden... hell, throw Ash in there for good measure (and to sell that many more units). I guess this could be the next best thing. Now if only it were the original Freddy...

I agree with the slasher video game. I always thought that Dexter would translate well to a "L.A. Noire"-style game, where he has to invesitage people and find places to kill them. But I dislike random fighter games so that's where my agreement ends.
