Sony explains how to get the most out of Kratos in Mortal Kombat

Wednesday, 20th April 2011 20:12 GMT By Stephany Nunneley

Sony has posted a how-to of sorts on how to be victorious in Mortal Kombat using the PS3-exclusive Kratos as your fighter.

According to the post, Kratos is more of a tactician instead of a brawler, and while his combo attacks are not patriotically fast or powerful, players must use “finesse and animal cunning,” to get the job done.

Using the Helios Head like you would Scorpion’s spear or Sub-Zero’s ice blast, it not only has good range, but stuns on impact which is useful against characters which use jumping attacks. It can be even more devastating when using the Olympic Ascension move, which launches both fighters into the air, and followed up with the Olympic Toss, you can cause up to 30 percent more damage.

Hades Pain and the Hades Edge can also be used, and are especially fitting when going against attackers which use teleportation moves.

There’s plenty more information on how best to use Kratos on the PS Blog, which also details the God of War’s moves, fatalities, and combo attacks.

Mortal Kombat was released in the US yesterday, and is out tomorrow in Europe.

    Dont know what you are talking about LOL but it could be because of exclusive magazine scoring. You know. Like say OXM gave it 9/10 and PSM3 gave it a 8.5/10…that would make the overall score for PS3 lower than its 360 counter part. But havent seen any indication of the PS3 version scoring lower anywhere. Have a link?

    @1, math.

    Presently PS3 metacritic rating is 84 based on 14 reviews, while X360′s is 86 based on 18 reviews. 4 xtra reviews for 360 version (again, at THIS moment in time) raises the average.
