    This mortal combat is still tons of fun. Realistic graphics, top-notch body and facial animations, extremely inventive violence and perfect sound effects. Ed Boon and Co. still make the best fighting games in town.

    The randomization of Krypt rewards and the odd issue with the game's always-online nature can occasionally chip away at your patience, but Mortal Kombat 11 absolutely hits where it matters.

    I am not a huge fan of bloody violence, but I am still attracted by MK11's beautiful art style, great graphics, interesting game systems, and tons of game modes, including a very detailed teaching mode. No doubt it is the best of the whole series.

    At its core, MK11 is a great fighting game – and free-to-play elements, while unfortunate, do not significantly diminish the experience. [Issue#238, p.52]

    All in all, Mortal Kombat 11 is a great package, and nicely fleshed out with a ton of content and modes for both the casual fighting game players like myself and the hardcore community who want to get stuck into the online battling. The heavy involvement of microtransactions can be an annoyance, for sure, but there's more than enough to get busy with to help beat the grind.

    There are a number of Beat ’em Ups on the market, but nothing compares to Mortal Kombat. If you like the exaggerated splatter effects like me, you will always feel this special tension in the fights, because the next head could roll or organs could fly around. I'm quite surprised by the story mode, I wouldn't have expected such a high level. The six hours or so entertained me wonderfully, also because the combat system is well-developed and fair. Tower and online modes can't quite reach the campaign's high bar. Nevertheless, Ed Boon and his team have once again succeeded in creating a great Beat ’em Up that will captivate me for a long time to come.

    A refreshing addition to the series, with beautiful graphics and excellent combat, yet plagued with microtransactions that force you to choose between grinding or paying, as well as lackluster RNG systems.

    The game is great, i honestly don't know why people are complaining about micro transactions this is a fighting game and a damn good one too.The game is great, i honestly don't know why people are complaining about micro transactions this is a fighting game and a damn good one too.

    It does what it sets out to do, be a brutal and fun fighting experience. ED you and your team have done a stellar job in terms of how the game plays and interacts with the players.

    I had crazy fun with a few of my friends in a lobby, one can see a lot of thought went into the lobby I love how you can rate a player after you loose to them.

    As for the way the game looks just........... *MIND BLOWING* in 4k or 1080p.

    The crit I have on the game is that there are still a few areas where it plays at 30fps,
    the few day one glitches like server disconnects, the lag input on controls which happened more than once.

    Other than that for you who are MK fan this is another great entry into the MK series.

    As it is, this game is unacceptable. Almost every menu you navigate, you are prompted with a "connecting to server" modal dialog. If theAs it is, this game is unacceptable. Almost every menu you navigate, you are prompted with a "connecting to server" modal dialog. If the connection drops, you lose access to single player content. The game uses a terrible grind system to entice people to buy content with microtransactions. The developers have said that "they are working on a fix", but their fix is to fudge the numbers somewhat to make the grind a little bit easier, not remove the grind completely. But that is the only fix. Remove consumables, remove assists, remove augments, remove random drops, remove randomization from the krypt.

    The game also crashes here and there in the menus, which can cause data loss.

    Until all these things are fixed (and let's be honest, they never will be), I cannot recommend this. It's a shame, because I like the story and the core fighting mechanics are good.

    It's a third time - third time when my review got deleted. Not going to stop tho. Game is completely **** 100% of politcorrectness,100% mtxIt's a third time - third time when my review got deleted. Not going to stop tho. Game is completely **** 100% of politcorrectness,100% mtx and grind,quality? 0%. If you are creating game with liberal themes in there like making girls ugly or representing Trump as a tyrant and slaveholder - cool. But don't expect me to pay for that. If you're a fan and you bought it/supported it - you are the problem. Expect MK 12 where you pay for intro. Expand

    Choke-full with microtransactions. I might stomach that, but... pandering to bloody feminists by dressing up female characters completelyChoke-full with microtransactions. I might stomach that, but... pandering to bloody feminists by dressing up female characters completely (why not let them were burqas next time? That way you can pander to the bloody muslims too!) while men are scantily-clad, plus, making Jax "woke" to pander to SJWs and the far-left, that, THAT kind of BS I cannot stand. Never did, never will. Want to push you far-left agenda ? Use a website, a newspaper, or CNN news for all I care. But NOT games. Absolutely no way in hell I'm giving you money to reward your forced ideological propaganda policies. You should be ASHAMED of yourselves. The. end. Expand

    Hey Boon!

    You loved to troll us Mileena fans and make fun of us.
    Guess it's our time to return the favor!

    No Mileena = Not my game!
