    the next Gen fighter is here

    A review based mostly on graphics, storyline gameplay and character implementation. Fully utilizing the power of the next Gen consoles, Mortal Kombat X has set the standard for all fighters to come. With great textures, smooth lighting and interactive features, it's no longer just a background but a live environment. You can toss barrels, swing on vines, jump off bells, swing for the fences with tree branches etc.. these interactions allow for a change in the action than just your simple button mashing normalcy. The story mode is awesome. I only wish it was a little longer. It builds a great plot, bringing with it the introduction to some fresh blood in the game. The off spring of some old school vets (Cassie cage, Jackie Briggs) infuses a fresh new line of fighters to move forward with and they fall right into place. You go through 11 chapters of a pretty cool story and get a feel for different fighting styles without losing a beat. Each fighter comes with 3 variations, essentially providing more character depth and fighting styles for your old school favorites and the new additions alike. With classic audio clips (get over here!) It's a well mixed bag of the old school and the new. The factions seem to be still working out some bugs, so I won't be going into too much depth with that but it seems generally like it could build into something fun. For now, playing the live towers is enjoyable enough and has some replay value. Each character has a little back story when you play "Klassic" tower. Online seems just a touch laggy at times but for the most part runs pretty smooth after an update was provided. There's a krypt mode where you go into 1st person view and run through a puzzle, unlocking features with koins earned through kombat. You can unlock alternative costumes, fatalities, brutalities icons, fast fatalities, art work and more and tho I find this a tad unnecessary and time consuming, I like the thinking behind it. Keeps things interesting. (Won't get into the pay features... you'll find out for yourself) Overall I'm extremely impressed with how MKX is rounding out and with a few minor fixes this game could standout as one of the best in the series. Id recommend this to fans of the old and the new. A great intro into the next generation.

    Been playing since release date both online and offline. It sucks that this is the "last" M.K game that they're going to make, but wow it's good. The storyline is fairly easy which is good for beginners and the story is great. It explains what happened after 2012 M.K by showing you past & present. Apparently it seems 25 years has passed and it shows! The xharacters have all aged(those who age unlike Mileena or Kitana) and some of them even have kids who are characters in the game like CassieCage(Sonya + Johnny). The graphics are mind blowing and make all the gore so much more gorey. They've gotten even more twisted somehow by adding actualpeople as props to hit an opponent with. Interesting NEW features include a new and scary approach to the Krypt, more online options like tower battle where you rank by points earned & team battle. Another new feature is having factions. Here you choose from the choices like Shadow, Lotus, Dragon, etc. This feature keeps you occupied if you find yourself running out of things to do. Factions compete against each other, currently Sub-Zero's faction is highest ranking. IMPORTANT: my game got application error about 4 times during the introduction to factions so watch out. The dlc season pass will not download for people(including myself). As long as they fix it I'm fine. COLLECTOR's EDITION: Figure has excellent quality and feel.

    Solid Fighter, with new mechanics

    Though the storyline leaves something to be desired, the actual game is a Kombat game through and through. Fatalities are as bloody as ever, brutalities are a quick way to embarrass your opponents, and their new system of juggling 3 different types makes it a pretty interesting change. Myself I still stick to Scorpion and Raiden as I always have, but the new characters are certainly interesting, and with Predator on the horizon for DLC you can imagine my excitement. The Krypt is back in all it's former glory, as well as test your luck towers, test your might towers and the new faction system. I haven't personally gone into the multiplayer aspect of the game but it's a solid fighter with reasonably smart controls, and X-rays are still as fun as they were the first time you did them. Interestingly enough through the game you have button sequence cutscenes which keep you engaged in the somewhat lackluster story. Also 8 new characters to the mix makes things interesting even if 4 of them are offspring of previous characters. Sadly, Smoke, Noob, Baracka, Syndra, and a few others are not back to participate. I understand that this may have been a time constraint, but why incorporate them in the story if we can't play them?

    It's Mortal Kombat

    First of all, I'm excited because I nabbed this game for 5 bucks. $14.99 is still a great price but BestBuy game me $10 off anything in store. So this was a steal for me. I must admit I am a fan of fighting games for what they are, but not a huge fan. That's mainly because they are so redundant and get old quickly. BUT, I must say that I am pretty impressed by Mortal Kombat X. The game looks astounding and has a great roster of Kharacters to choose from. The Krypt gives additional gameplay value and the single player story isn't bad at all; not the best but come on, we're not playing Final Fantasy here, it's a fighting game. The fatalities are absolutely awesome. With that alone let me stress how this is not a kids game at all. The way to brutally murder someone is not something kids should see. It's pretty cool how there are 3 different fighting styles for each kharacter, Raiden has always been number one in my book. Anyway, to sum this up, I would never pay $59.99 for any fighting game but for MKX at $14.99, that is a great deal for a pretty great game.

    Obviously if you are reading this you are a fan of fighting games and most likely the Mortal Kombat series. I have played Mortal Kombat since the first one was made. Lets just say they have come a long way over the years. First off I own the game for the Xbox One. Graphics are amazing, as they should be on a current generation console. I will throw out a warning to parents if they are potentially considering buying for a young child. The Fatalities in this game are very graphic and brutal so please use discretion if shipping for a younger person. This game is very different from other MK's I've played. There is a whole lot more going on. There is factions to join, living towers, boss invasions, and of course the classic Krypt which is large and hold mysteries of its own opposed to the old linear unlocking in past games. The controls are typical of your classic MK game and the game is beautifully designed and levels are very interactive. You have not lived until you have hit someone with an old lady (sort of a spoiler but not really). I would recommend this game to anyone who is mature and likes fighting games.

    Visually the game is stunning and it's campaign is one of the best in the genre but it is held back by its horrible netcode. The second you hop online you'll notice how choppy online play can really be even when playing with friends who live near you. That's if you can even join each other. The variations add a lot of depth and balance to the characters which is great compared to the spamfest and imbalanced mess that was MK9. Microtransactions are horrible in my opinion and they make their way into this game. You can pay for "easy fatalities" and 20$ to unlock everything in the krypt. There is a lot of content here but the lack of good netcode kinda ruins it all it is possible to have good stable matches but they are few and far between. I recommend making rooms stating your general location so you can find people near you and hopefully get green bar matches. That's in case you have made up in getting it if you can wait then please do yourself the favor and wait until these issues are ironed out, it'll only get cheaper as well. If you don't play online then you'll LOVE this game.

    I bought this a couple weeks after release. Overall I enjoyed the story, but the multiplayer can be hit and miss literally! It's a solid title but the story is missing closure in parts. ie. Cassie Cage should subdue Kung Jin's rash action in one part but laughs at his insubordination. Some characters are present like an Expendables movie cameo. I would have preferred to just kill off the old crew and have a totally new crew. Timelines are weird, some characters seem to exist past their expiration. Kung Lao seems to be presented as an ancestor to Kung Jin? Anyway on to the multiplayer. I like the multiplayer aspect, king of the hill and towers for single player daily / weeklies. The lag was bad sometimes. But I found that only happened 5% of the time. There is a built-in crypt dungeon crawl that provides loot for the coinage you earn for matches. The DLC is the only negative, I never knew it took so much work to make a character and some skin. At about $5 a char, I can't seem to care about them. $1.99 is a better deal. Glad MK still matters!

    Mortal Kombat has some VERY nice graphics, and brings in some unique mechanics that I personally enjoyed. It is by far the slowest kombat system, where combos feel more mechanical and not as spammy as previous titles. Their are quite a few characters to choose from, which I found exciting, and it brings in a nice diversity to the experience. There are a few characters that are numbingly overpowered and they somewhat ruin the online experience. But, as with any current online fighter, there's always those characters lurking around. Hopefully they nurf them, but for the time being, if you play online, expect to meet the ubers quickly. Still an enjoyable game, and the story tried for the most part. Nothing special, but something to do. I almost want to give this game 4 stars simply because of how much I enjoyed the dungeon dwelling mini-game, where you spend points you've earned rom playing the game, to unlock secrets, skins, and new fatalities. Only buy this game if you'e a fan of the Kombat games, or you'll ultimately throw it at the wall. gg

    While no where near perfect, I'm having a blast with this new Mortal Kombat. Just when the series was getting tired again, the new characters, fresh worlds, interesting story (though a bit short and campy) breathe new life into the series. On a 1 to 10 scale, this game is a solid 9 for me. The only cons are the clunky, choppy animations that appear mostly during taunts and between rounds. The sweat is not very well done in the game either, making characters look like orange peels, instead of flesh that's dripping sweat or mildly glistening. The online features have been a bit of a headache too. It seems 5 times out of 10 I cannot connect to Living Towers, Faction servers, online play, etc. I'm guessing this will be fixed. Also, the female characters's arms are too short, which makes it harder to land punches in combo openers and the like. These points aside, the game is INCREDIBLY fun. It's quickly becoming my fourth favorite Mortal Kombat, after the original three arcade titles.

    I expected the game to be good, but I didn't expect it to be as good as it actually is. It takes everything that was great about MK9 but one ups it. The new level interaction is great and mixes up gameplay well. There's a bunch of things to do in it, like exploring the Krypt for random extras, check out the traditional tower or play one of the new randomly generated 'living' towers that will have random modifiers that get updated every hour, day and week. There's also Factions to join and Invasions from Outworld to take part in. The story is actually fairly entertaining as well. All of that is without even touching any aspect of multiplayer. The only downside currently, and hopefully it'll get patched in, is there isn't any tag gametype available for MP. All in all, I highly recommend this game, especially if you're a Mortal Kombat fan or enjoy fighting games.

    Best for hardcore gamers, not casual

    I will start my review with the disclaimer that I am much more into shooters and RPGs than fighting games in general. I just buy the occasional fighting game as a fun alternative to play with friends sometimes. I've always been a pretty big fan of the Soul Calibur series, and have always found those games fun and easy to pick up & play (meaning you don't have to have spent hours practicing and memorizing crazy hard fighting combos to play and be decent at it). Mortal Combat X is much different. I find the move combos a lot harder to achieve (much more joystick action rather than buttons) and it's not a game I feel I can just pick up & play without spending hours practicing beforehand to enjoy. I'm sure a more hardcore fighting game player would love this for playing online competitively, though.

    If you're a fan of 2D fighters, you owe yourself to check this game out. If you love Mortal Kombat, why are you even reading this??? This new interation is great. They have a batch off new characters that are welcome, however, if you played Injustice some of the moves seem familiar. No worries though! Each character has three variation. Each variation having different supers and therefore changing the way you use them. This ultimately make it feel like there are more characters than there really are. I was never a fan of Sub Zero because of how slow he was. However, he has a variation that makes him faster, but his ice powers aren't as strong. The story mode is about 5 hours long, pretty decent for a fighting game. Tons of online modes, KoTH, Ranked, Unranked, Towers, etc. This game is a huge step in the right direction for Mortal Kombat. I suggest picking it up!

    ...and even if it had come out then, its graphics wouldn't have elicited more than a half-hearted "meh." It astounds me that a year and a half into the new console generation there has been no significant (from the consumer's standpoint) advancement in the graphical presentation of a significant portion of games released thus far (Mortal Combat X is not the only offender). The game play is exactly what you would expect and hope for from the franchise, which is the only reason it received a second star. The fault lies partially with the Xbox One. With every new release I'm regretting more and more my decision to upgrade consoles - rather than an upgrade from a Corolla to a Charger, we got an upgrade from a Corolla to Camry. It's a bit bigger and should last longer, but you won't notice much difference while your driving. At least I didn't have to buy a Kinect...

    Just what I was hoping. The gameplay is like the classics, and it's exactly what I was hoping when I preordered it. The 2D battlefield makes for a to-the-point fighting game, unlike FPS where you run around a 3D map for 60sec before you see anyone. In this game, the match is already over and you move on to the next one. My favorite feature would be the combos you have to push in order to reveal a special move. Even better, they are different for every player... even the fatalities! This definitely keeps you wanting to try each character to reveal their signature moves. "Rated M for Mature" - and it's blatantly obvious. The amount of gore in the fatalities can be a bit dramatic, but it is quite comical (for an adult). This game is so entertaining, even my wife enjoys playing it!

    Game is good, unfortunately the fulfillment wasn't as good. Pre-ordered the game which for this game allows the buyer to unlock some additional character. The code (DLC) was suppose to be emailed upon the purchase. Well almost a week later and another stop into the store no code yet. I was told the company Best Buy uses ran out of codes and once they have more they will email... So just be patient there's nothing more they can do. First off, not the service I expect from best buy, second not the service they should expect from their fulfillment vendor and third the extra $5 dollars to buy the character online was probably spent in gas to have to drive over to Best Buy to find out what's going on! Very disappointed as this was my first time preordering at best buy.

    This game is so great on every level. The usual characters are back, and some new capable characters as well. The online is better than ever and the best online in a fighting game I've played. there are 1v1 3v3 and 5v5 with randoms or friends and randoms. king of the hill game mode is 7 people in a tournament like mode. king of the hill matches are done one at a time while the other players spectate your match and rate after. the person defends his streak and all the players in the lobby rotate and try to beat him.then when he's defeated you got a new king and he now has to defend his throne. it can get pretty intense when a player is on a 10, 20 or 50 winning streak and people are trying to take him down. the krypt is also a lot of fun for buying and exploring.

    With an awesome roster of characters and great controls, Mortal Kombat X has become my go to fighting game on Xbox One. I've played MK games for a very long time and this title is definitely a worthy successor to the mantle. This game has a good story mode which provides a good way for new players to learn the ropes before venturing into online play and when you're ready several different online modes which cater to any players style. Got time? Join a King of the Hill lobby and battle your way to be the King. Need a quick one on one? Ranked versus or Social versus is ready for you. Plus the faction system and challenges adds a weekly incentive to put time in and help your faction receive the rewards. This is an amazing fighting game.

    Experience with purchasing with Best Buy delightful as usual. As far as the game is concerned, I would've given it 5 stars if not for all the excluded content that you have to pay for. It's very disappointing that 4 new characters will not be included with this game but were available almost at release. The game itself stays true to its roots but with a lot more flair; environmental objects in stages can now be used in combat, fatalities have been revamped, and the graphics are sleek. The game play definitely feels very responsive and there is quite a bit to do unless you want to shell out more money to save yourself the time. I would recommend this game if you're an MK fan and/or could appreciate some unadulterated creative gore.

    This game brings back some characters from previous versions of the games and adds a few more. The fighting styles have been updated and expanded upon. So a player can be familiar with one character's fight mode but not another; this adds so much more possibilities to the matches. The story modes are interesting but not needed. There are also more "tower" modes to challenge your skills and unlock more parts of the game. Graphics are great and newer combos and X-ray moves are awesome, especially giving them and not receiving them. Not really a game for younger kids due to story mode language and themes but anyone over 12 should be okay with the fighting style complexity and those story mode issues (despite the M rating).

    If you liked the MK9 fighting style this one is not that much different. The most noticeable difference is the addition of the three fighting styles which will allow for some more customization to the player's playing style. Cool addition in my view. I still haven't played tower battles yet but that is coming soon. Characters have 3 fatalities and I believe 6 brutalities each, additionally there are faction kills which are specific fatalities to each faction. I believe there are five of these in total. While not as fancy as the individual characters fatalities they are really easy to pull off. I can only speak for the Lin Kuei faction kills at this point. They are just ok but an unexpected addition.
