    I suppose the best way to describe Mortal Kombat 11: Aftermath is as a finishing move of its own. Though, it’d be a Friendship, rather than a Fatality. It’s in many ways a means of NetherRealm showing appreciation for the series’ history. The free additions pay tribute to the past by bringing back old moves in a gorgeous way. The paid elements give two more classic fighters a chance to return, Robocop a chance to dole out justice, and an even better capper to a story that gives returning fighters who showed up as DLC a place in the story. It’s all handled incredibly well and, to be honest, even people who just come back to the game for the massive free update and its balance updates and additions will be more than satisfied.

    Aftermath expands on an already massive amount of content and adds an enjoyable story from the best storytellers in the fighting game genre but damn it's expensive.

    The fanservice is very welcome and all three of the characters are interesting, but it's difficult to suggest buying this expansion at full price, unless you're a hardcore fan.

    A hugely enjoyable expansion that brings a trio of awesome new characters to the table, in addition to a rip-roaring continuation to Mortal Kombat 11's superb story campaign, Aftermath nonetheless struggles to properly justify its steep $40 price point.

    The Aftermath expansion simply doesn’t add enough to warrant its additional cost.

    £35 for half a Kombat Pack and a three-hour epilogue is terrible value for money, especially as only two of the new characters are any good.

Netherrealm studios didn't just give us a dlc, but a full experience and the result shows it. Story people will love this, over the top with smooth execution, full of tragic moments, I find myself feeling sorrow, anger, hope and despair all along the way. The execution is just incredible, game play enticing and intense, didn't loose a notch from the previous MK11 release. Expand

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. Even for a MK fan since MK3, it sure may seems a lot to pay $40(AU $60) for me to pay for expansion pack. But after I finished the game I have to say MK11: Aftermath is a better story version of MK11. The story consists of 5 chapter that full of amazing story, character details and battle! They used some scenes from the previous MK11, which make its look recycle scene but the familiarity also adds another exciting elements to it! After all, they are going back through time to fix it.

    What’s best about MK11:Aftermath is how they include all the original characters that is very important without much involvement of the new characters (Cassie, Jacqui, Erron Black, etc.)! It brings the nostalgia back and it reminds us why Shao Kahn, Sindel, and Shang Tsung are the best original villain of MK series!

    Hands down to MK11: Aftermath!

    One only flaw is just that how Netherrealm studio makes us fan to pay big extra amount just for it! Though, again it’s worth it!

    love MK, really like MK11 and that's why i shelled out around $100 to get the top tier package at release. Now i'm supposed to shell outlove MK, really like MK11 and that's why i shelled out around $100 to get the top tier package at release. Now i'm supposed to shell out another $40 for 3 new characters and some stupid story in a fighting game? This seems to be the new standard with the AAA studios now, season passes that don't cover all the planned content and micro transactions to boot. aaaaand it 5 months we'll be able to buy the "ultimate" edition with all the Kontent, 5 five months after that the ultimate version will be on sale on steam for $20 and i'll feel like an ass hat again....

    Extremely overpriced grindfest, Its a shame because ths has some of the best art direction and writing of any fighting game, but the extremelyExtremely overpriced grindfest, Its a shame because ths has some of the best art direction and writing of any fighting game, but the extremely frustrating towers of time and the infuriating Boss fight with Kronika honestly makes me hate this game.

    Who ever designed the kronika boss fight should be sacked seriously, Netherrealm studios does not respect your time or your money.

    I CAN NOT STRESS THIS ENOUGH,,, DO NOT BUY THIS EXPANSION.
