Mortal Kombat 11 finally realised a true Mortal Kombat experience on Nintendo hardware, and with Mortal Kombat 11: Aftermath, Nintendo Switch players get to experience this full expansion in all its glory. The five-chapter-long Story mode isn't essential, but it does a nice job of weaving the non-third-party DLC characters into the narrative, with Shang Tsung still managing to steal the show. The three additions to the roster certainly won't set it alight, but Fujin alone does bring a few dimensions to the party. It's a fun expansion, but the asking price is still a little too high at launch.

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.

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.

In terms of the quality of the content, Mortal Kombat 11: Aftermath is a great addition to a genre that typically only sees smaller updates like characters and stages. Shang Tsung taking a lead role brings a classic Mortal Kombat feel back to the story that has long since abandoned the more grounded conflict between the realms for events taking place on a much grander scale across time. While its price as an add-on may be pretty high for what it ultimately delivers, being part and parcel of a complete collection of Mortal Kombat 11 makes it a great entry point for new players who didn’t pick the brutal fighter up since it released last year.

Although the steep price may be tough to swallow, Mortal Kombat 11: Aftermath is an impressive addition to the core game. The new additions to the roster are (generally speaking) a blast to use, and the additional story beats give fresh life to some of the more colorful faces of the franchise.

Ask yourself two questions: Did you love the Mortal Kombat 11 campaign and want more? Are you dying to play as Fuijin, Sheeva, and/or RoboCop? If the answer is yes to either of these questions, then MK11: Aftermath is a definite buy if you enjoyed the gameplay of Mortal Kombat 11. If not, then I’d hold off.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Aftermath's content isn't tempting enough due to its current price, but its a good deal for those who will get the expansion with the base game for the first time.

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

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.
