    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.
  7. 50
    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.

    Хз чё народ бунтует, но игрушка хорошая. 9/10
    Минус только в том, что издатели повелись на поводу фемкам и sjw.

    A 6/10 for now, as performance on PC is all over the place with some scenes rendered at my refresh rate(144hz) and others jumping between 30A 6/10 for now, as performance on PC is all over the place with some scenes rendered at my refresh rate(144hz) and others jumping between 30 and 60, with a ton of weird graphical issues due to motionblur(I assume). This is also not to mention a ton of bugs and crashes, as within the first 10hrs of me playing, the game crashed 4 times.
    Also not super big on how focused the game seems to be on competitive play, without providing a means to players to pick a region. This has led me to start to lose interest as I cant play online when most of my games I'm matched with people in Europe which gives me excessively high ping.

    cons:
    *microtransactions (this makes a 0 rating for me,alone)
    *some random fps drops especially in character selection menu
    *random game crashes (returning to windows without any notification)
    *30fps locked krypt
    *unsuitable character for Mortal Kombat - Centrion ( i would say Cassie,Jacqui,Skarlet and Erron Black are not suitable,too..But i think people got used to see them from previous games)
    *npcs that should be playable - Sektor,Cyrax
    *uninteresting,undeveloped and simple looking last boss in story mode

    pros:
    *gameplay mechanics
    *graphics,animations,character/stage designs
    *Kung Lao :)

    What a disappointing entry in the MK franchise!

    A lot of fan favourites are missing (Mileena, Rain, Sindel, Smoke...).

    The story is abysmal, makes no sense at all and effectively destroys the entire lore of the last 27 years. Also pushing you personal political agenda with certain tower endings is just disgusting. The developers lied about certain aspects (all characters in the story will be playable, there will be unlockable characters, they will listen to the fans and include all the fan favourites...)

    Most importantly however: The developers showed how much they disrespect/hate one of the biggest fan favourites (Mileena) and her fanbase. They didn't include her in the game and mocked/ridiculed her fans for telling NRS how much they want their favourite to be a part of the new installment.

    Don't buy games from developers who lie to you, mock/ridicule their own fanbase and put wokeness above character consistency.
