    A stellar fighting game and is one of the best ones ever made in my opinion. The depth and variety it offers are unparalleled, even by the likes of Injustice 2, another NetherRealm creation. There are so many characters to customize and master — with many more on the horizon — which should keep you enthralled for months to come.

    NetherRealm has made Mortal Kombat 11 a must for lovers of the fighting genre. Its incredible gameplay, its great graphic finish and its cinematographic history make it a serious candidate for one of the best games of the genre of this generation.

    It’s a rare fighting game that hits just about every note as strongly as Mortal Kombat 11 does. Everything from its methodical and deep combat to its fantastically absurd story mode and its rock-solid netcode, right down to its extraordinarily comprehensive tutorial is absolutely exceptional.

    Streamlined mechanics keep the act of fighting furiously exciting no matter what your skill level, and comprehensive tutorials encourage you to dig into the nitty-gritty. There's a diverse roster of interesting characters and playstyles, and the story mode is an entertaining romp. The randomization of Krypt rewards and the odd issue with the game's always-online nature can occasionally chip away at your patience, but Mortal Kombat 11 absolutely hits where it matters.

    Mortal Kombat 11 delivers on what you would expect from the acclaimed long running series of iconic blood-soaked fisticuffs. The end result, despite a painful grind, offers a solid experience that looks great, feels amazing, and succeeds in keeping the franchise alive and revitalized, yet again. If you’re looking for one of the gen’s next best fighters, get over here!

    Yet this is comfortably the best Mortal Kombat in a long time. Played competitively against another person, it’s great, and the single-player experience is the most accomplished of any recent fighter.

    Mortal Kombat 11 has some design issues, but overall I enjoyed my time and I can sincerely say I'm looking forward to the inevitable sequel.

    Ok this game is getting way way way too much bad press from users. Having put many hours into the game and own it, i'm going to set the recordOk this game is getting way way way too much bad press from users. Having put many hours into the game and own it, i'm going to set the record straight. Here are the Pros & Cons.

    Pros: visuals are great. Graphics are beautiful. Especially in 4k.
    Gamplay is great. The story is one of the best in MK series. Even the klassic towers impress. Staying to the tried and true formula ,while still adding in some new goodies. And if you get bored with that theres an AI mode which allows you to pit your creations against other opponents creations. A really cool and different take in the Mk series. Sound quality is also right up there with the pros. Now lets get to the cons.

    Cons: The Krypt. This is majority of peoples complaint and i can understand why. Because now theyve made all the krypt chest random. Which is just stupid. Now it doesnt matter which chest you open ,whether expensive or cheap, in the start area or end. Its all the same. Its plain stupid. Was much better when it mattered what chest you opened. FIX THIS! The next one is one i havent seen listed and am amazed more havent complained about it. The rate at which i am able to block is way way to slow. In a fast paced game like this,when i hit the block button i should immediately block. In MK11 there is at least a 1 second delay from button press to actually blocking. This is extremely too long for a game that it should be immediate. How am i supposed to compete against other players when i cant even block their attacks in time!!! Stupid! FIX THIS!! Luckily there arent many Cons, if i find more i will definitely add.

    In closing: This Mortal Kombat is easily one of the best in the series ,but held back by greatness because of some easily correctable issues. If they can correct the issues that are frustrating so many fans this will undoubtedly be the best MK. I will upgrade the score to a 9 when things are fixd.

    If you guys liked my review please check that yes box ,so we can make Netherrealm more aware of these issues.

It even has a system tht works identical to a friggin mobile game !!!!!! r u kidding me n i almost forgot something about been more respectful to women in a game that involved decapitating people with over-the -top finishing moves.

    One of the worst fighting games I have ever played. To start, the game has horrible fighting mechanics, scrub rewarding and noob friendlyOne of the worst fighting games I have ever played. To start, the game has horrible fighting mechanics, scrub rewarding and noob friendly garbage. Fatal blows literally reward people for losing and some characters have busted krushing blows. The game is far from balanced and seems to have the idea of a risk/reward system completely backwards. The roster sucks, like, who wanted Jacqui and Cassie in for another game instead of Takeda or Ernac or some other actual cool character. Literally no fun game modes, Towers of Time still isn’t fun, just a bunch of annoying modifiers that don’t make sense like darkness modifiers and chaos modifiers. Aftermath is a waste of $40, which is overpriced as hell. You’re getting 3 **** characters and a story mode that isn’t even half the size of the original story mode and they have the audacity to make it $40. Like I said, no fun game modes like tag team or test your might or anything. I could go on all day as to why this game sucks but I don’t have time. So just take this. Expand
