Liu Kang Playthrough

Unlike many character, Liu Kang stay with a near identical outfit he had in Mortal Kombat 2. Having won the first tournament and being responsible of Shao Khan’s plan going downhill, he became the prime target of the emperor. With the help of his allies, he will continue to defend EarthRealm.

Liu Kang High Fireball is a great way to punch the opponent away, but his a little slow. However, his Low Fireball is more useful, countering almost every projectile in the game forcing the opponent to jump to avoid any kind of damage. His Flying Kick, being fast, is ideal to get an opponent in the air. His infamous Bicycle Kick can be used to catch an opponent off-guard, since it will go through most normal move if the opponent performs his move around the same time. Each kick move is a great combo ender, especially the latter that allow more hit to be done after it.

Liu Kang can be versatile against the CPU. He has 2 devastating combos, as well as 2 variation of the second one. One of them launch the opponent, allowing him to use a variety of moves to do juggles. His second is very powerful and will throw the opponent as far as possible from Kang. Low Fireball will catch any CPU attempting to throw a projectile, and will mostly catch them as well when they are about to get up.
