    It's visually better, richer in content and more comprehensive in terms of gameplay compared to its predecessor. It will definitely make you spend time with it until the arrival of MK XI.

    Mortal Kombat X is ridiculous amount of fun, maintaining the core of what’s made the franchise successful while evolving enough to stay relevant.
  3. Mortal Kombat X is furthering the story that was presented in Mortal Kombat 9. New characters, graphics and combat system is changing everything you know about Mortal Kombat universe. It's one of the best fighting games we have seen so far.
  4. It’s still the same fun and crazy fighting that demands from the player exactly as much as he wants to give. You can gather your friends and simply mash buttons to enjoy bloody spectacle, or you can spend hours perfecting your techniques to compete with professional players. No matter how you choose to play it, MKX will find something to offer. [June 2015, p.64]

    MKX will last you for a long time. A few variations of the usual Arcade Mode, some dumb mini-games, online multiplayer, a lengthy story campaign, and, finally, Krypt… Not all changes to gameplay mechanics are obvious, but they do make the game more dynamic.

    Excellent fighting mechanics and an incongruously good story hampered by serious performance issues. [June 2015, p.56]

    Not a komplete katastrophe, but you should employ kaution when deciding if Mortal Kombat X is right for you on PC. It's a great game, but one that's krippled by bugs.

    Seems impossible, how ignorant peasants are downgrading the game, just because a bad launch. It's obvious, you paid, you don't want to crushSeems impossible, how ignorant peasants are downgrading the game, just because a bad launch. It's obvious, you paid, you don't want to crush into anything like that, but it happened.

    Still, writing a review isn't about the launch, it should be about the game, which is hardcore fu'kin fun, and enjoyable. Fights are smooth, characters are awesome, variations are something new that upgrades every fight.

    Heaven and Hell, you can even watch your matches in form of replays, how cool is that.

    Pros:
    - it's Mortal Kombat
    - it has Sub-Zero
    - intense, fast-paced fight
    - fantastic roster
    - Klassic towers with story endings
    - online di'k showing off
    - Krypt
    - Replay

    Cons:

    - quick and short story, interesting, but nothing more
    - QTE, which i like, but i know others don't
    - launch problems obviously
    - non playable fighters (MK9 Baraka, and Rain in story, but not in the game - possible DLC?)
    - Internet spoiled (you should've close your eyes, but you just can't. it's MK, i wanted to know everything)

    Basically except the bad launch, the short story, and the very hardcore spoiled content, i don't have any problem with MKX. It's back, it's groovy, and

    "damn, i'm good"

I don't give a **** about your excuses for this **** you are the head of development team, the main guy so it's your personal fault as well. Fanboys can try to protect you by saying that it's a WB or HV fail, but I don't buy it. Expand
