Mortal Kombat 11: Aftermath Reviews
Overall, though, MK11 is an outstanding game, and the free content update and the paid Aftermath expansion give this game another boost to carry it on through 2020.
If you already have a disc or digital version of Mortal Kombat 11, update the game and enjoy its new and free content, but paying $40 for the Aftermath add-on is not recommended at all. The story section of Aftermath is short and poor quality, only two of the added characters are good enough, which unfortunately cannot be purchased separately.

Already the king of the story mode in the fighting game genre, Mortal Kombat 11: Aftermath adds even more enjoyable content with a DLC character focused plot. Adding in three new DLC characters with Fujin, Sheeva, and RoboCop only sweetens the pot in this must own package that all Mortal Kombat fans should experience.
If nothing else, Aftermath is a must-play for both newer fans of the modern Mortal Kombat narrative and old-school fans who enjoyed the 1995 Mortal Kombat movie. While there have been offshoot projects like the Mortal Kombat Legends: Scorpion's Revenge movie that released earlier this year, Aftermath's story shows once again that there are no better tellers of the Mortal Kombat lore than the NetherRealm team themselves.
If you like fighting games and did not have a great game like Mortal Kombat 11 in your possession, now is your chance to have it all with Mortal Kombat 11: Aftermath Kollection, which also includes the Kombat pack with characters like the Joker. On the other hand, if you already had the game, you will have to weigh whether the new story expansion and the additions are attractive enough to pay € 39.99.

There's not enough meat on Mortal Kombat 11: Aftermath's bones to feel like a full expansion, but two of its three new characters are excellent and the brief campaign is fun while it lasts.
If the zany story started in Mortal Kombat 11 was the main course, then Aftermath is the dessert that makes the entire ordeal completely worthwhile. Not only do we get an epic conclusion, but also three new characters to play with and several amazing stages. Sure it may be a bit overpriced, but if there's one thing to be said here, it's that Netherrealm Studios really has mastered their craft, both with the storytelling and with crafting an enjoyable fighting title.
Mortal Kombat 11’s blemishes have carried over to Aftermath yet they are far outweighed by the accompanying strengths that have also made the jump. NetherRealm’s extraordinary cinematic techniques are on full display in Aftermath’s three-hour campaign and provide an appreciated touch of darkness to the game’s overall narrative. RoboCop, Sheeva, and Fujin also all earn their place on the character select screen even if none of them were topping out anyone’s most-wanted list. Aftermath’s premium additions, in conjunction with the free content, demonstrate that Mortal Kombat 11 is more than capable and deserving to survive far into the future; a true but welcome irony for a game famous for its gruesome depictions of death and dismemberment.
Mortal Kombat 11: Aftermath lets its villains strut their stuff in a fun epilogue, and the new fighters are all welcome additions, but an overall lack of content makes it tough to wholly recommend this expansion at its full $40 price tag. Those new to Mortal Kombat 11 can get a much better deal, but if you've already bought the game, this Aftermath may not add up.
I suppose the best way to describe Mortal Kombat 11: Aftermath is as a finishing move of its own. Though, it’d be a Friendship, rather than a Fatality.
£35 for half a Kombat Pack and a three-hour epilogue is terrible value for money, especially as only two of the new characters are any good.
Seeing a continuation of the bonkers Mortal Kombat 11 story is thrilling, and the new characters are solid additions
This still a great game in its presentation and gameplay and wealth of content and a great choice for newcomers, but for existing owners the Aftermath expansion might seem a bit light in content compared to the asking price.

A compelling DLC for an excellent game. It's more of the same, but with new and interesting characters.

In some ways Mortal Kombat 11: Aftermath would work better as separate pieces of content that could be bundled but as a rerelease, it is shockingly good. The base game was already strong, so adding more characters is certainly welcome. It's a shame some of them, like RoboCop, won't have universal appeal and the story could be a bit better but in terms of straight gameplay, it is hard to dislike what Mortal Kombat 11: Aftermath is trying to do.
...Those who have never played MK11 before can purchase the base game, the Kombat Pack and Aftermath for $59.99. This is an absolute steal for what may be the best fighting game of the generation. Aftermath reinvigorated Mortal Kombat 11 in such a way I can’t help but not recommend it.
Mortal Kombat 11: Aftermath is a fantastic ending to Mortal Kombat's story, and adds three fantastic characters to the game. Casual fans might find it a little pricey, but this is an excellent expansion.
Mortal Kombat 11: Aftermath is a short and sweet expansion of new stories, characters and gruesome action that gives fans more of what they love.
Mortal Kombat 11: Aftermath is a great continuation of the story, but the cost is rather steep for what you're getting. Fujin and Sheeva are brilliant additions to the roster, even if RoboCop doesn't work as well.
For those who already own Mortal Kombat 11, the Aftermath expansion simply doesn’t add enough to warrant its additional cost, even though what’s included is decent enough.
