Rain hasn’t been seen since Armageddon 5 years ago, but his first real appearance was back in the heydays in Ultimate Mortal Kombat 3. His outfit is slightly changed from Armageddon, but it looks a lot better and not so much like a magician. He’s really a character for advanced players since he’s very hard to combo with, but his special moves are awesome using the nice water effects in the Unreal Engine 3. One of my favorites is a move that engulfs the opponent in a water ball and you can move it around the screen for a few seconds to set up a combo.
Rain is kind of a medium-close range character, but when you master his combos he can be pretty deadly and powerful. Rain is more of a defensive character and good for people who strategize and like to plan the next hit. He has a fairly large special move list, but a lot of these are defensive. Other than that his fatalities are very interesting, but could have been a little better. He definitely feels like a character that controls water very well, but you’ll need to be an advanced player to take advantage of him. I also have to mention his X-Ray move is pretty brutal. Pick him up for the usual DLC character price especially if you were a fan.
