Mortal Kombat X is a near-perfect evolution of MK9, blending nostalgia with new roster additions that feel like worthy successors to those lost.
Mortal Kombat X was built with value in mind. The studio wanted to give you the most modes, densest gameplay options within each mode, and the options to help you play the character you like the way you like to play them.
Mortal Kombat X is the next step in the series. While not quite as impressive as 2011's reboot, this is easily my favorite game of 2015 so far, and I have a hard time believing it will be topped.
Mortal Kombat X is a mechanically clean and visually grisly release that comes highly recommended for all fans of the fighting genre.
Overall, Mortal Kombat X is easily the deepest in the series, in terms of both story and combat mechanics. The microtransactions are a minor issue in the face of the great gameplay, but this is still the best title in the series. One thing's for sure: the next Mortal Kombat has a lot to live up to.
Brutally satisfying and enjoyable in its absurdity, Mortal Kombat X carries the franchise's flag high

Add in a great story mode with depth plus some really fun online gameplay and Mortal Kombat X for me is one of the best fighters in a long time, especially with those brutal finishing moves which is also the reason this game deserves a much needed R18+ rating. Needless to say, Mortal Kombat X is bordering on perfection!

Easily the best fighting game on the market today. MK X takes all of the lessons learned with the 2011 release and turns it up to 11: content, gameplay, and overall fun. If the developers can improve the netcode a little bit, this could be a major contender on the fighting game scene for years to come.
Mortal Kombat X offers the best story mode I've ever personally seen in a fighting game.

While the core fighting isn't quite as fluid, it's smart, inventive and a lot of fun, while the brilliant story mode, Factions meta-game and additional game modes should keep you coming back for months to come. Easily the best Mortal Kombat yet, it's the first that can go toe-to-toe with Tekken and Streetfighter without going down.
