Street fighter tekken is the only one I would recommend. I got ultimate mortal combat and marvel vs capcom 2, and both were disappointing. Sorry, not too many good games in this genre mainly cause of control issues.

Surprised no one has mentioned Counter Strike: Masters of Melee fighting! Why no love for this game?

Street Fighter IV Volt, Street Fighter X Tekken, King of Fighters-i 2012 and Soul Calibur (this one doesn't have online).

King of Fighters is awesome, and the port of Soul Calibur is quite decent if incomplete. Blade Lords is, at first blush anyway, quite accomplished, if less deep than SF and KoF.

Kinetic Damage should be coming out soon -- it looks pretty darn good.

Blade Lords? I didn't try that game, but yeah, KD looks really cool.

BL is an Unreal powered 2.5D Soul Calibur-style mission-based fighter with RPG elements. The move set is nowhere near as deep as SF or KoF, but that's not necessarily all bad. The biggest issues are lack of playable characters (you start with one, and unlock a 4 or 5 other ones) and the fact that it's free+IAP - you are sure to hit a pay wall at some point. Serious fighting fans will probably find the game lacking, but someone who has a more casual appreciation for the genre may find the visuals, story, and RPG elements compelling.

I actually do want to try mortal kombat. I know the controls are not the best but I really want it.

My concern is that it would crash constantly on my ipod touch 5.
