    If you've waited this long to enter the tournament of Mortal Kombat, wait no longer -- MKXL is a stellar release, combining exquisite fighting with a massive amount of content.

    It’s literally just Mortal Kombat X, which is already an excellent game and anyone interested in a few of the eight characters may just want to purchase them a-la-carte.

    This is still that good fighting game from last year, without any significant additions nor massive changes besides new characters and cosmetics. With improved netcode and all balance fixes NetherRealm has released so far, Mortal Kombat XL is nearly a flawless victory.

    Mortal Kombat XL is basically a huge all-you-can-eat for fighting games fans. It's not polished as Street Fighter V, but the gameplay is fast-paced and fun, and bound to keep your stomach full for a long, long time.

    A fighting gaming bursting with content, as well as severed body parts, and more of both makes this XL edition particularly good value for money.

    Mortal Kombat XL is the total package for newcomers, with a lot of content and fighters included. The first day fans however pay a hefty price to get all the new content.

    Still has the awesome fighting mechanics, great graphics and sound, good story, but I kinda feel there's something missing with this game.

This is a great buy for MK fans that missed the first print. Expand

    This game is terrible.Most of the franchise is bare bones and boring and it doesn't have skill base matchmaking witch means you can join gamesThis game is terrible.Most of the franchise is bare bones and boring and it doesn't have skill base matchmaking witch means you can join games filled with people who are way better than you and because there is no punishment for spamming the less skilled players who spam ruin the game which creates a mix of a bunch of bad players and E sport player wannabes.The story is quite boring and there is an option to skip fights which defeated the purpose of the campaign if you can miss most fights.I do nutlike this dying franchise and I would stay away from this game if your are looking for old games for your consoles.
