The new DLC brings more fun to an already great game, however, it should have been available at a more reasonable price point.

Although the most significant changes to Mortal Kombat 11 come from an update that doesn’t require you to put down more money for an expansion, Aftermath still manages to be a worthwhile addition for its story mode and Shang Tsung’s exceedingly fun performance alone.

Mortal Kombat 11: Aftermath brings a whole lot of content to an already massive fighting game, and makes it even better. A definite buy for the fans.

While not revolutionary by any stretch, Mortal Kombat 11: Aftermath breathes new life into the experience in smart and welcome ways. With the exception of the average Robocop, the new characters are unique and brimming with potential, and the story content is a short but sweet trip through the world of Mortal Kombat post-MK11 - hefty price-tag aside.

Despites a high launch price and few new costumes, MK11 Aftermath pruposes three new cool caracters, with Robocop as a guest star, a new pretty amazing cinematic mode.

Shang Tsung steals the show in this really good story expansion, that is only drawn back by its price.

Aftermath is not a huge expansion, but every bit of content that comes with it is fitting perfectly with what the base game already had to offer.

If you have not purchased the original MK11 or you did but never got round to buying any of the DLC and character packs than for the asking price I would absolutely recommend the Kombat Kollection which has the original game, all the DLC to date as well as the Aftermath expansion and content all together in one package for just a little more than the expansion by itself. This really is the best version to buy and it just makes the standalone price seem over the top but at this point, it is probably fair to say if you have purchased all the DLC than Aftermath is a no brainer for you. For me, revisiting MK11 because of Aftermath reminded me just why I loved this game on release and now thanks to the Kombat Kollection I am inspired to try out all the DLC characters I missed along with all the quality of life updates and refinements made along with this new update. Quite frankly, just having Cary-Hiroyuki Tagawa voice Shang Tsung to deliver his iconic “IT HAS BEGUN” makes Aftermath a must have just by itself!

Aftermath is more than a DLC to me. A very good storyline with great narrative and satisfying characterization, make it worth your money. New playable characters are easy to play and hard to master which make them right for the roster. If you like to expand your experience with MK11 in a really fun way, Aftermath has everything for every playstyles.

Still, die hard fans of MK should definitely consider picking Aftermath up. The campaign is short but sweet and the new characters are fun to experiment with. It really just depends on your wallet.

A hugely enjoyable expansion that brings a trio of awesome new characters to the table, in addition to a rip-roaring continuation to Mortal Kombat 11's superb story campaign, Aftermath nonetheless struggles to properly justify its steep $40 price point.

With many additions included alongside its feature length campaign, including its downloadable characters, handful of skins and new arena’s, and of course Cary Tagawa’s own campaign, you will not be disappointed by this astonishing adventure. Mortal Kombat 11: Aftermath is essential gaming for hardcore, and old-school fans of its historic legacy.

The new story, whilst fun and camp and brimming with all the 80s action-movie nonsense that NetherRealm so shamelessly references, is just a bit underwhelming.

A nice add-on for franchise completionists but largely superfluous for more casual fans, especially when weighed against the strength and value of vanilla MK11.

New content for Mortal Kombat 11 that adds a new approach to the story, new fighters, friendships are back and we can control Robocop.

It may be pricey for the amount of content it offers but the story makes up for this flaw and sets up a better path for the future of the series compared to the main game's ending.

I really enjoyed the Aftermath story campaign, though, appreciating all the twists and turns it presented throughout, watching a mastermind like Shang Tsung at work. Price range aside, it’s an absolute must for Mortal Kombat fans and is sure to set the fan theories into overdrive as to what comes next.

Mortal Kombat 11: Aftermath is an entertaining extra romp for those wanting more Mortal Kombat 11. Though it likely doesn’t change the trajectory of the franchise, it’s a fun 2-3 hours anchored by the phenomenal Cary Hiroyuki Tagawa. Fujin and Sheeva are decent additions to the roster, though RoboCop comes off as an uninspired choice for the third slot. There aren’t any new additions to the gameplay, outside of the free stages, Friendships and stage fatalities added for all players free of charge. If you loved Mortal Kombat 11, you’re going to enjoy Aftermath. Its weakness is the cost. For $39.99, Aftermath doesn’t supply enough to justify the price. The story is over too soon, and with only three new characters, the offering comes off as shallow when compared to what players got in the base game and Kombat Pack. As an expansion, Mortal Kombat 11: Aftermath features a quality addition to the campaign and three new characters that are mostly high quality. While quality should always trump quantity, Mortal Kombat 11: Aftermath is a case where the quality can’t justify the high cost.

The fanservice is very welcome and all three of the characters are interesting, but it's difficult to suggest buying this expansion at full price, unless you're a hardcore fan.
