Mortal Kombat X Reviews
Not a komplete katastrophe, but you should employ kaution when deciding if Mortal Kombat X is right for you on PC. It's a great game, but one that's krippled by bugs.
In some ways, Mortal Kombat X surprised the hell out of me. The art direction is superb, the fanfare is lovingly crafted, and so much interesting single-player content's going on that I'll never have to deal with playing online. The Faction War, in particular, is just the right addictive factor to keep me considering logging in daily, if only for a quick session, just to help my group out.
Fine fighter with an enjoyably daft story, marred by wobbly port to PC.
Not NetherRealms finest, but still a solid fighter.
Mortal Kombat X in the end is an excellent fighting game, as many will tell you. It is not, however, the greatest PC Port, as it lacks any clear advantages over its console counterparts and also has a number of technical problems that are unique to the platform.
Mortal Kombat X has tons of polish, unique mechanics, and the genre's best story mode, but it doesn't do enough to keep players invested if they weren't already planning on it.
When it comes to the gameplay, Mortal Kombat X is a solid fighting game, but a small roster and shoddy story hold it back from being a complete experience.
Despite some callous priorities in ensuring paychecks, Mortal Kombat X is a sturdy fighter with sound technical design and enough auxiliary choices to stay exhilarating for dozens of hours.
There's no arguing Mortal Kombat's timeless design, but the newest entry doesn't attempt to evolve the fighting genre or even the franchise itself. And yet, Mortal Kombat X is a competent fighting game, and it bears the marks of an experienced team that knows how to give their fans what they want.
Sonia Blade is looking a little weathered, and Johnny Cage now has silver hair. But they break bones more effectively than ever before. Like its two veteran heroes, Mortal Kombat X is grown and matured into everything that it wanted to be. It's not perfect and has some thematic inconsistencies that let it down, but it is a gorily beautiful game, and as far as I'm aware, it's the first one to have exploding testicles.
Mortal Kombat X is a must buy for diehard fans and aspiring fighters alike. While the story mode falls a bit short, it's more than made up for with the character variations, solid online servers and an ever changing Live Towers game mode.
The latest 'Mortal Kombat' is a solid entry in the franchise and a great fighting game in its own right. It has much more content than I expected, and the huge roster and addition of stances for each character give it long legs. The microtransactions are real, but manage to keep to the shadows enough to not spoil the hard work that NetherRealms has been doing. Fighter fans will find a lot to like about 'Mortal Kombat X'.
More stages, combo challenges, and a tag mode would have really helped to up the value, but don't let that be the downfall - Mortal Kombat X should satisfy any fighting game enthusiast.
Even though Mortal Kombat X has a few surface wounds that could use patching up, it's a superb fighting game that lives up to its hype and meets the lofty expectations set by its predecessor. This is the swiftest and most aggressive Mortal Kombat yet, and it's rounded out with fresh modes, gruesome finishers, and enough ingenuity to keep the series moving forward. If you're even a little interested in fighting games, this is one tournament worth signing up for.
Consider Mortal Kombat X your first essential fighting game of the new generation of consoles. It's best enjoyed with local friends thanks to the easily memorised combos and buckets of gory X-Ray moves and finishers. The story and lengthy Tower options will pad out the single-player experience, but the online match ups are reserved for the more hardcore player.
Despite all this Mortal Kombat X is still an insane brand of fun, delivering the ultimate pick up and play bloodbath for those who don't necessarily want to take their fighting games too seriously. Absolutely packed with things to do, there's plenty there to encourage you to better yourself. If you're one of those hooked into Mortal Kombat lore then the story is definitely worth a playthrough here. What we've essentially got is a bigger and bolder version of Mortal Kombat 9, marred slightly by intrusive microtransactions and at times dodgy performance issues.
All in all though, Mortal Kombat X is a solid entry in the series. Some decisions relating to microtransactions and network code for online play mar the experience, but there's very little else that comes in the way of this being one of the better fighting games available for fans and newbies alike.
The game has questionable in app purchase options, but with what looks like a strong support for the game through constant updated towers and new DLC characters (Woo Predator) across multiple character packs, Mortal Kombat X is a polished fighter and the best playing Mortal Kombat in its long running history.
No flawless victory, but the closest attempt yet
It's pronounced "REE-YOU," damn it.
