is easily the best design to come out of the "3D era" of MK games.
Kenshi manages to retain some of the style & personality of the original Mortal Kombat
series, and thus, fits in quite well with the rest of the cast. His "blind
swordsman" gimmick isn't entirely original, but in fairness, he's a pretty
cool design. His fighting style wasn't the smoothest or the coolest in the
first few games he appeared in, but wasn't terrible.
In MK9, NetherRealm Studios completely
revamped his fighting style... and it's a big improvement to say
the least. The fact that he uses his mind to control his sword isn't an original
concept, but it definitely works in MK. He's got some brutal, and slightly disturbing moves...
especially that X-Ray. On a side note, his redesign reminds me of Keanu Reeves
from The Matrix. lol.
