Instead of being patronizing and simply saying it's not hard perhaps you could actually offer some pointers? And just saying jump kick isn't much help either. Maybe say when and how to employ the jump kick? Just because you had no trouble doesn't mean it's easy for everyone. I haven't played this game since I was a kid, and even then it was the SNES version, not the arcade version meant to eat up quarters.

Sorry, its just that since its kind of a spam and dosen't require skill, i didn't understand how you could miss it. Basically jump back forward for goro, be sure you can jump kick him then jump back, jump kick again and so on...

Shang Tsung is the other way around, jump til he reach the screen end and jump kick him/uppercut, rinse and repeat...

No worries, sorry for the aggressive reply, I was just getting aggravated by the bullshit AI. I ended up beating both of them though and kind of figured out what everyone meant by the jump kicks. Previously I was just repeatedly jump kicking in the corner, so it was no wonder I was having trouble.

I used the freeze move followed by an upper-cut with Sub-Zero for Goro and just kept freezing him when he was getting back up. For Shang-Tsung I used Liu-Kang and mixed it up with his flying kick and jump kick. All in all, really not too bad once you know what you are doing. Seems I've become quite rusty since my SNES days. Playing the old ones really gives you an appreciation for how polished MK 9 is.

You maybe didn't get rusty, its the arcade version... its way harder than SNES days...

Thing is with jump kick, you got to flip back until you are from a safe distance and then jump kick, work for every characters(may have to retry each character as they get easier when you loose to them... ) but then for Goro its try and see... it may not work every time... but it usually.

I remember UMK3 on the SNES, a piece of cake but then on then on the 360, I can't get past sub zero on the endurance stage. Any tips anyone?

For goro in MK I I used sub zero and kept using his freeze ray and would go up and uppercut goro. Also would keep jumping back to get a good distance from goro and then I would go and kick him. Rinse and repeat and you will get it easily. Patience is the key. Scorpion works good as well but I found sub zero to be a little bit more effective.

Here's how my bro did, after I tried a few times to try to find a technique to help him :


Basically, I read somewhere that you can "jump kick" Kintaro then do Kitana's special move to lift him up.

But each time (or near each time) I tried to link the jump kick and the special move, Kintaro did a throw or an uppercut.

Then I tried to find another (better) way to link the special move with a classic move, and found that it work pretty good if you link it with a punch (X button).

So, what is shown in the video is "jump punch" (x button), "special move", "uppercut", "jump punch" (x button), "special move", "uppercut", etc...

If you watch carefully the last round, Kintarou seems to have no reaction (or really only a little ) when he's in the corner with this technique, because he don't seem to react often with an uppercut or a throw. Dunno if it's just a coincidence, or if it's really because he was stuck on the corner.

I hope this video can help a few peoples

I have yet to see a difference between "normal" and "very easy" I get my @$$ handed to me in the same fashion on both.

Oh, and as far as Shao Kahn on MK3 goes......fuck him. I can't use the freeze/uc tactic because he seems to magically time one of his green energy balls with my ice, so even if I freeze him I get that and an uppercut in exchange for a 25% damage green ball.

Oh, and one last thing....fuck NR. I finally beat Shao Kahn and didn't get my cheev.
