Can I run Mortal Kombat 1?

There are several ways for you to check if you can run MK1 on your current setup, with most users using a benchmark tool of some kind.

Our go-to sites are System Requirements Lab and PCGameBenchMark. Both will allow you to confirm whether or not you can run MK1, giving you helpful information as to what your PC is lacking in case you can't.


Of course, even if these benchmarks say you can't run it, it might simply mean you'll have to turn the graphical settings to the lowest.
