TRMK Does Mini-Review of Midway Arcade Treasures: Deluxe Edition for the PC

The folks over at TRMK have reviewed the classic ports of MK1, MK2, and MK3 included on Midway Arcade Treasures: Deluxe Edition for the PC. Keep in mind this is the first time all 3 MK games are available on the PC in one port. Their review begins with problems using the copy-protection software that the disc uses:

As with all recent Midway PC games, Midway Arcade Treasures Deluxe Edition contains a controversial Star Force copy protection software. Just type "starforce" into Google and you'll see many of the issues people have with this type of copy protection. The first annoyance this copy protection causes is a mandatory reboot of the system in order to play any of the games after installing them, unless you have already installed a game previously with Star Force protection.

If you have previously purchased Midway Arcade Treasures 2, then you have seen everything there is to see here. Both Mortal Kombat II and Mortal Kombat 3 are exactly the same games seen on the consoles, quirks and all. All of the terrible oversights are present, such as flickering and dissapearing shadows and the poorly mapped pause and start buttons on the same button resulting in no hidden Smoke battle and no Random Select. Unfortunately, instead of fixing these problems plaguing the console release of these games, the developers have introduced a new serious flaw that affects ALL games in the Midway Arcade Treasures 2 compilation. Every game's music is non-existant. Not a single background music song is heard in any of the games on Midway Arcade Treasures 2. The console version of the arcade Mortal Kombat 3 had some big problems with the music and it seems like the baby might have been thrown out with the bath water in this instance. This is an inexcusable omission that cannot be overlooked as the games feel soulless without their background tracks.
