    Not the Kombat I was hoping for

    Let me start off by saying I love mortal Kombat! It is my favorite fighting game franchise by far. When it was announced that the franchise was going to be rebooted I was very excited to see what new characters and stories would arrive. I was disappointed with mk9 and this xl version is a baby step in the right direction but still not enough to merit a 5 star review. First the good, the game graphics are gorgeous! The characters and especially the backgrounds are amazing. I love the interactivity of the stages as well. A pretty large selection of characters is a plus also. Ok, now the bad. I HATE guest characters! I don't care about alien or Jason or any characters that are not from the world of mk! They take up space that could be used on new exciting characters! Speaking of new characters, the new kids are ok. Cassie is by far the best one so kudos to the mk team! But the whole roster feels heavy on male fighters. What gives?! Mk has plenty of awesome female fighters so why weren't they included? I'd like to see a returning nitara, li Mei, ashrah, Jade, etc. Also kotal Kahn just doesn't do it for me. I'm disgusted they named him Kahn! Moving on, the violence and gore are at ridiculous and pretty stomach turning levels. Personally I think it detracts from the game and is unnecessary. I also don't like the variations system. If they are going to go that route why not just make them selectable on the fly during a match as it was in deadly alliance and deception? The story is ok but seems like a retread of the past and frankly I was expecting new and fresh ideas. Well if you simply must have this game then go for it. Otherwise just wait to see what mk11 will bring. As negative as this review sounds I still think$20 to pick it up is a sweet deal!

    New Yet Familiar

    I bought this game so my son and I could play a fighting game (and because Street Fighter isn't on the XBox One) and it's a good time. I started off button mashing and having some pretty good results, but as he actually practiced it didn't take long for him to catch up to my mashing abilities. The graphics are nice (as you'd expect from this generation of consoles and games) and the action is as high speed or as stealthy as you are a fighter. A lot of the fighters are familiar from the multitude of Mortal Kombats before it so I didn't come in unaware, but they have new moves, new sequences, and background interactions that give it some depth. Like all fighting games, it gets a little repetitive after awhile, but it's still a good game that's easy to get into and takes some time to master. Her'es a little hint that my son failed to share with me until later into the game: you can see all the combo moves and finishing moves by pressing the menu button at any time.

    Basically the complete Edition of "Mortal Kombat X". It includes both Kombat Packs,which are the characters Jason,Predator,Tanya,Tremor,Alien,Leatherface,Bo Rai Cho and Tri borg. Tri borg is a very interesting unique character. He is a combination of all three cyborg ninjas(Cyrax,Sektor and Smoke)which are in the form of his variations. Also included with this package are all of the classic fatalities,stage fatalities,tons upon tons of gruesome brutalities,along with stage brutalities and all character skins. If you are a fan of "Mortal Kombat" or a fan of fighting games in general,then I would definitely recommend this game. It's worth every penny and you won't be disappointed!

    I grew up playing Mortal Kombat on the Genesis and PSP, this is very true to the original spirit of the franchise. However the level of detailing of the gore and the fatalities may be a bit much for newbies to the franchise, so it's definitely a case of caveat emptor (let the buyer beware) when buying this game. Having said that, the Graphics and the character detail as well as the fighting venues are immaculately detailed!

    I never bought the x box one on launch so i missed out on a bunch of games that released the first two yrs. I got finally got one xmas time so i have been playing catch up on buying and playing games. The bonus is most of the games I missed out on have dropped in price so this game for 19.99 plus has all the downloaded content that could have easily ran you $20 plus. If you were interested in playing MK then now is the best time to jump in.

    Best Fighting Game Ever

    Mortal Kombat only gets better with each release. It's nice to be able to buy the XL with almost all the DLC except for a few costumes. Who doesn't want to play Alien vs Predator? I have always been a fan of the series and look forward to the new x-rays, brutalities, and fatalities. The story mode is fantastic for a fighter which introduces new and old characters. Great job. I just wish the story was longer as I enjoyed it so much, You can't go wrong purchasing this fighting game.

    One of the best MK games ever made

    I hadn't played any of the MK games in a long time and decided to get this on a whim because it was only $20. It's worth the price alone to be able to play as the guest characters -- Alien, Predator, Jason, or Leatherface -- not to mention all the other classic MK characters. Definitely takes the franchise a step forward with a cool story mode as well as the traditional fight tower structure.

    I grew up playing Mortal Kombat games, and hold some pretty high expectations in terms of gameplay. Well, MK XL is really fun and exciting to play. I’ve played it on my PC and iOS devices, and have recently got back into playing on the Xbox. This game is fun regardless of what platform you play it on. The graphics and game mechanics are great (though I haven’t played in 4K), and the story is exceptional as ever.

    It's been a long time since I've played a Mortal Combat game, but I was looking for something new to pickup and play on my new xbox that I got for Christmas, and this was a cheap game that I thought I'd give a chance. Let me tell you that I'm glad that I did. This game is loads of fun by yourself or with friends. I would definitely recommend it.

    Mortal kombat XL is a fun game. It has brought me back to the series. Hadnt played MK since mk deception on ps2. Ive had it since march but forgot to review it. As of 11/18 the game is still thriving with plenty of online competition. Def not a bad buy for $20. I ended up playing this alot more than i really expected.

    Best Mortal Kombat since MK3

    Well, MK3 was the last MK I owned on a console. I love my Sega Saturn! This is a nice and fun return to a series I hold fondly in my heart. All the blood, guts and fatalities you can ask for. The combo system takes a bit of getting use to but it feels satisfying to nail a huge damage combo. Overall I love it!

    Mortal Kombat XL is a great fighting game that requires a bit of skill, but is fun to play even for a novice. The only down side is that there is not a proper practice mode to take you through the moves lists. Yes you can find all of the moves listed and practice them, but a proper practice mode would be helpful especially for people new to the series.

    Straight forward and intuitive controls for veterans of Mortal Kombat. Beautiful, high def polished graphics. Didn't like having to update before playing; Microsoft needs to work closer with publishers to see that any required updates are included in the game software before release,- I took a point off for that, as I consider that a part of the game.

    The game mechanics are tight and control is spot on. Graphics for the most part are outstanding and really shine on a 4K display. Music and sound effects are excellent! I really enjoyed playing through the single player campaign and might do it again. Over all Id highly recommend this title to fans of the genre!! This is the Version to get!

    Its an ok game. Just dont like the season pass system. There were no extra charge for characters back then. You had to unlock them by playing through but now they want more money. Just like Boeing charging you for the main safety feature.

    I think I bought this game waaaaaaay too long after it's original release date. Maybe if I bought it when it came out first, I would have a different opinion of it. The graphics and game play are sub par--again, maybe not for its release date.

    It's been a few years since I've played a Mortal Kombat game but it's just like I remember them. Fun game, good graphics (if you like the gore) and overall worth it. The only complaint would be all the extras they want you to purchase in game. A $60 game turns into a $100 game if you want to unlock all the "features". Hence the 4 star rating.

    Mortal Kombat XL was the reason I was holding back on purchasing Mortal Kombat X in the first place. I knew that there would eventually be a package that encompassed all the Downloadable Content right into the disc. Great game with extremely fun DLC characters that make the XL version an absolute must-have for any fighting game fan.

    By far one of the best theyve made. Not only do you get the entire roster of kombatants plus their original versions but now you can get chestbursting goodness with Alien & his nemesis Predator, along with everyones fav butchers: Jason Vorhees & Leatherface!

    Why oh why do fighting games come out in two editions? It's such a hassle to wait for so long to get the best version with all the unlocks. This is a great game and has tons of replay value if you're a fighting game fanatic. I think it's about time that they release another Kombat Pack though to keep the game relevant.
