    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.

    The game is undoubtedly 10 out of 10 in everything!
    Graphics: is outstanding with this fluid mechanics in the mix and impressive skin
    The game is undoubtedly 10 out of 10 in everything!
    Graphics: is outstanding with this fluid mechanics in the mix and impressive skin sub-surface scattering with amazing animations in most of parts and more lively like emotions
    Gameplay: Tutorials are unexpectedly great and does the job so well yet better than MKX at so many levels
    Story mode: Impressive story with some gaps (as always) but the overall is amazing unlike any fighting game , also contradictions are decreasing significantly in the whole time-line and it keeps growing in the right direction
    Game modes: Nice variety and very enjoyable

    but nothing is so bright with WB

    now ... for the bad points
    Game Economy : here where things goes so bad that I might say the main reason for stripping 3 points because it is the whole issue even after update to keep grinding less , really complicated and for no reason in a fighting game , till now I see 5 types of currency .... WHY ? why this mess ? and to unlock new stuff I have to go to the krypt and oh my dear lord I spent 200,000 (Koins) on 3 brutalities ! other than that useless stuff like concept art and ... some stupid items , like coagulated blood and a sacred spear ... what is this ? why ? to go to a forge and craft items ... really ? very weird and totally unnecessary
    Server connection is pointless in every corner that is supposed to work well offline , sometimes while in story mode it quits unexpectedly and asking me to restart the game ! why is this ? why it is even important ? I don't mind connecting every second to the server to update data even in tutorial (which is annoying but doesn't take much to fuss about ) but why I have to restart ?
    Frame rate cap , I have 1070ti and I tried the uncap mod , it works like magic , the experience is way better in 60 FPS , wow , why did you do this capping unchangeable option WB ? I hope they apply it in next patch as an official in-game option in graphics
    Lastly is unlocking stuff which relates to game economy but I really don't like the krypt idea to unlock things in boxes that you don't know what will it contain , after spending 200,000 which is a lot of boxes opened , I got almost nothing compared to 15 minutes wandering around , and have to craft and forge useless items to help you in towers of time , also no characters to be unlocked as you play except for frost otherwise you have to pay for them , waste of time and money actually .
    I would give it a 10 , really enjoyable and they worked hard on it to give them 5 or 0 that is really ungrateful in the mean time I don't blame somebody reviewed it below 7 to 5 , but this thing is really important , don't lock charachters behind real money , make them hard grind to unlock I don't have problem and who is lazy to unlock them like frost , pay for it , let these old day return back and don't let the price for these things fool you , people wait for discount and here you see it , an impressive game like this has 2.2 out 10 at the time I wrote this review ! that is worse than fallout 76 which is really a bad game !
    please WB ... stop bad buisness practices and I will mark it as 10 , I really want that , in the meantime this kind of Micro-transaction and complicated game economy we don't want that to be the future of games , learn from Capcom , yes they have DLC's to pay for but it won't affect your experience drastically in the game if not at all , you still play the game in full experience and have things to unlock and discover , but fighting game characters are a crucial part of the game , how you make them as DLC ?
    anyway I recommend this game even with these bad points , really worth every penny and you will enjoy it so much if you are in fighting games.

    In the last time went a bad trend, when group women, ugly, untidy, devoid male attention and as a consequence offended on the whole worldIn the last time went a bad trend, when group women, ugly, untidy, devoid male attention and as a consequence offended on the whole world (huddled in together), is obtained (not without aid weak spirit of developers, bleyuschikh with them in unison) dictate, around the world, as must look female characters in games (although they this not know and in game, likely, not play)... This game (mk11) is no exception. More terrible female characters I have not seen in the history of the series.. Ugly closed women's suits, (half-naked men, oddly enough, no one's feelings do not offend, which I consider cynical and deceitful on the part of the manufacturer). In General, I will no longer buy games from this Studio. If I was given the opportunity to get my money back for this game, I would have done so. The MK9 was and will remain the best part of the series.. Expand

    Burqa kombat!
    Why is it this game has all the ladies covered from head to toe? I mean, even in MK vs DC sonya was looking saucy and the game had a wider audience with the DC fans along for the ride. This time around Sonya’s old crusty and Skarlet is in a Burqa. What happen to fan service. The new time lord is even shirtless crushing people with his sand hammers, but God forbid any female in the game is easy on the eyes.
