You have the wrong impression of the game, completely. The character movement looks fluid. It's darker than ever and definitely for the mature audience.
Yes it is more darker, but still borderline ridiculous. That new video you posted actually highlighted some of the things I don't like.
That sub-zero attack where in he impales scorpion with an ice sword and then magically scorpion still comes out fighting. How "realistic" is that?
Also, there this whole crushing your liver thing. The guys playing the video actually chuckled a bit when it happened. I'm pretty sure if someone crushed your liver you won't be able to get up. Don't get me wrong, I do like the whole "internal damage" thing and I feel it fits well with the fighting engine which I think is superior and fits the "realistic" road. But there are some things that MK does that makes me not want to take them seriously.
The fatality reel looks great. Again, I'm saying they're headed in the right direction but their not just there yet.
I think Johnny Cage's chest tatoo sums it up. Getting a tatoo doesn't automatically make you edgy and darker, sometimes it makes you look stupid.
