14Worst: Mortal Kombat 4 (1997)
The reason why Mortal Kombat 4 is one of the worst in this successful saga is quite simple: it didn’t meet the high standards that everyone was expecting.
This was one of the most anticipated games back in 1997, given the fact that it was going to be the franchise's first
step into 3D gaming. Unfortunately, this technology leap was actually quite messy.
Believe it or not, the development team did such an ugly job that the game literally end up being a 2D fighting style on a 3D plane, which was one of the worst design choices in the history. Although Mortal Kombat 4 can be credited for the incorporation of weapons and the introduction of new characters like Shinnock and Quan Chi, it will always be remembered for its failure to enter into the 3D era as it was expected to.
