Mortal Kombat: Shaolin Monks Tips

Defeating Shang tsung with less damage from him
ok if you're playing 1 player you can deal damage to him from a far distance, using kung lao's hat throw and liu kang's fireballs, make sure they're both upgraded for better damage specially the fireball. the battle style shang tsung has is Shifting from somebody and then returning back. so you might want to get a distance. to prevent damage from him you don't use your shield, sometimes shang tsung's fireball thingy removes your shield, so the other way around is to simply keep canceling him. how?

Kung Lao:
~kung lao has a charge attack (circle button) it enables him to deal strong attack and knocking shang tsung off the ground. doing so if you throw your hat at a distance he will be KO then simply run at him and then press circle. just make sure your aiming for his body. if his body slams on the boundary your lucky, press R1+Triangle so that kung lao can cycle with his hat throwing him upwards in the air, now, you can still deal air damage to him by jumping then pressing triangle again to flip him up but it's going to be risky since he can counter.

~if you abused him being knocked out in the air he can counter you, or if you wanted to punch him too much he can grab you. either sucking your HP or killing you instead.

Liu Kang:
~he doesn't have a charge attack but his fireballs does deal a larger damage than the hat thing. if you haven't upgrade it then this is the time. the same as kung lao go to a distance and then fire 2 balls at him, if you want three get a little closer to him. then once his KO get near to him and UPPERCUT or R1+Triangle, (if it doesn't work then wait for him to get up) if he flew up high jump and simply air combo him.

~unlike kung lao his tricks deal less damage but also leaves much HP since you can escape his counters but liu kang's combo is much for complicated to let go off that you still need to finish the whole combo before you can move away.. at that time you can get countered by that way so you have to keep a steady combo at him if you want to just jump and circle or X+O (ex + circle) so that he'll throw him down then move away <img src="http://i.neoseeker.com/d/icons/smile.gif" border=0 vspace=2 alt="" />

if ever he's transforming don't get near him or don't waste your MP shooting him it DOES NO DAMAGE. don't worry if he's somebody else you should still do the same tips as before but this time you can make a basic combo at him, but still. be careful.. they counter much more harder if you abused it too much <img src="http://i.neoseeker.com/d/icons/smile.gif" border=0 vspace=2 alt="" />
