    Already the king of the story mode in the fighting game genre, Mortal Kombat 11: Aftermath adds even more enjoyable content with a DLC character focused plot. Adding in three new DLC characters with Fujin, Sheeva, and RoboCop only sweetens the pot in this must own package that all Mortal Kombat fans should experience.

    While you’re able to play through the story in a single evening, Aftermath gives you a deeper look into the Mortal Kombat universe as seen through the eyes of characters who aren’t typically stars of the show. When combined with three additional characters, Aftermath delivers a strong package for fans of the latest iteration of the bloody fighting franchise.

    Mortal Kombat 11: Aftermath is a great continuation of the story, but the cost is rather steep for what you're getting. Fujin and Sheeva are brilliant additions to the roster, even if RoboCop doesn't work as well.

    Mortal Kombat 11: Aftermath is a really great expansion to an already amazing fighting game.

    There's not enough meat on Mortal Kombat 11: Aftermath's bones to feel like a full expansion, but two of its three new characters are excellent and the brief campaign is fun while it lasts.

    While we are happy with the returning fighters and are keen to delve back into the Mortal Kombat story, Aftermath doesn't present the content that justifies its high price point.

    Mortal Kombat 11: Aftermath follows up on the 1st major expansion to a Mortal Kombat game for the 1st time in its current masterpiece MortalMortal Kombat 11: Aftermath follows up on the 1st major expansion to a Mortal Kombat game for the 1st time in its current masterpiece Mortal Kombat 11. The story mode will take just about 3 hours and without putting any spoilers in this can result in 6 hours of play based on wanting to play ultimately to one side or the other obtaining the power and MK universe in the end and the results that ensue. Aside from that you receive additional arenas (I personally fell in love immediately with the retro studio / arcade arenas as a long time fan of the Franchise. Everything here is polished and deeper than previously not just the story mode. With the weapons and accessories now upgradeable to level 3 and the game constantly evolving. Warner Brothers had an amazing fighter before, and took upon that expanded it and made it that much deeper and polished. If you're a fan of the original this is a no brainer and if you're somewhat interested in it you can pick up the bundle of all the content for the price of a normal retail game with no content expansions which originally would have cost you nearly 3 times the price of today. Unless you are absolutely unable to enjoy fighting games there is absolutely no reason not to add this expansion to bundle to your Xbox One library. Really looking forward to what's up their sleeve next as it seems there may be more room for another expansion and that's not a bad thing. It keeps getting bigger, better and more polished so bring on the full MK roster and more story. I am truly enjoying it from a fan of the original all the way to the current and best of the franchise hands down. Expand
