    I don't understand why reviewers are giving such a high score for this game. As mentioned, reviewers are bias to certain games when it comes to review. To me its very lame arcade style of game. You just fight and fight, that's it. Lack of depth of the story telling and simple fighting style made this game somehow being rated as below average to me.

    Hear me out! I liked the DLC characters but the game doesn't win. The story is boring and stupid how it ended. The cage family ruined this game and just how annoying it is to do combos. Every time I try doing combos they never respond Its a pain to master the bad-ass Predator. I was disappointed with this game that i traded it for a better game and just made not ever want to play fightingHear me out! I liked the DLC characters but the game doesn't win.

    Truly annoying compared to mortal kombat 9 which was a masterpiece... Half of the characters here are missing, and are replaced with characters that just don't fit in the game.. Even those characters that I adored in the previous MK are dumbed down, so I end up playing with 2 characters out of 34 all the time, because the rest are worthless... Online multiplayer is kind of the same, youTruly annoying compared to mortal kombat 9 which was a masterpiece...

Online multiplayer is kind of the same, you end up playing against people who have no idea what mortal kombat or a kombo is, and smashing the same moves over and over again most likely with liu kang or scorpion...

    I know a lot of ppl are helpless zom bots for this franchise, but let's be honest. They made all the characters look american instead of asian (kenshi is a prime example), they still have not fixed the crash and destroy your hundreds of dollars System subzero glitch, you can skip fights for the lazy ones (just don't use it, fan boys will say. True but it still makes the game feel cheapI know a lot of ppl are helpless zom bots for this franchise, but let's be honest.

True but it still makes the game feel cheap thus ruining it some.) Wb has completely ruined MK. The graphics are average at best and most character faces look like anus. Oh and as if we don't have enough political or agenda horseshat in EVERYTHING, they decide to use MK as a Lgbt pedastal. Expand

    The ultimate edition of the best fighting game currently available. [05/2016, p.59]

    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 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.
