Mortal Kombat 11
Top Critic Average
If you absolutely want a portable version of Mortal Kombat 11, this is a fine experience when it comes to the core gameplay.
It's a bitter pill to swallow because Mortal Kombat 11 is actually a really fun and enjoyable fighter. It's gory, gruesome and full of some of the most absurd, crazy fatalaties in the series' storied history. The fighting has multiple layers of strategy too, ranging from X-Ray moves, counters, interactive environments and more. This game should be a high 7/10 or even an 8/10 but I just cannot recommend something with such predatory microtransactions in. Mortal Kombat 11 could be great, but it suffers a gruesome fatality at the hands of its microtransaction-riddled infrastructure.
Mortal Kombat 11 is an exceptional recipe for anyone who loves Netherrealm games. Nederlands Studios has made the gameplay more positive than ever before by making positive changes to the gameplay, and the few improvements made have made the campaign more sensitive and tactical than ever. MK 11 is a benchmark for Western Fighting. Given the long-standing promise of long-term support for the game, it is easy to recommend this title to anyone looking for valuable fighting to be entertained for a long time.

Featuring improved animations, more body-wrecking moves, and enhanced gameplay, Mortal Kombat 11 is the best entry in the long-running series. Unfortunately, some in-game shop elements, as well as the grind needed to obtain particular items, are annoying.
Mortal Kombat 11 is both the franchise at its best and at its worst with great fighting mechanics that are a big step forward combined with the bell and whistles of the service model that currently plagues the industry.
Mortal Kombat 11 is an absolute brutal treat from start to finish with a level of depth unrivalled from any game in its genre.
I had a blast doing this MK11 review, a game I really enjoyed. Yes, there are some issues with the game being on the grinding side and I do hope work on these continue with patches incoming all the time. But with an epic story, with choices and different options to make you go back for more. Loads of towers and great online play. Plus, really deep character customisations and options. Mortal Kombat 11 packs quite the punch in terms of content.
All in all, Mortal Kombat 11 is a great package, and nicely fleshed out with a ton of content and modes for both the casual fighting game players like myself and the hardcore community who want to get stuck into the online battling. The heavy involvement of microtransactions can be an annoyance, for sure, but there's more than enough to get busy with to help beat the grind.
There are some speed bumps along the way that prevent this game from being truly amazing, but for what it is I am thoroughly enjoying my time with it.
Mortal Kombat 11 is filled to the brim with incredibly characters and game modes. You'll come for the story mode, but stick around for the Towers of Time.
