The greatest Mortal Kombat game ever made (PERIOD).
11 October 2017 | by ColtPython82See all my reviews

I've been an MK fan since it was first released and I came across a MK1 arcade machine at my local Pizza Hut. All I can say is LOVE AT FIRST SIGHT! The combination of characters, lore, and game-play was beyond anything ever released. To this day many fighting game try to emulate this, but they continue to fail. Mortal Kombat fans are some of the most loyal and die-hard fans of any franchise, and I assume we probably drive Ed Boon (the co creator of MK) a little crazy asking what comes next all the time. But, Mortal Kombat X... Man oh man, did the studio out do themselves with this release! The game is so amazingly dark and gritty, with just the right amount of humor and action in the story mode. The fight mode is of course amazing and out does any other fighting game on the market. We have variations back from the 3D era, but upgraded for the next gen systems. The fighters look unbelievable and some of the new characters are insanely cool (Erron Black & Takeda). All in all MKX is a must have for any Mortal Kombat fan or fighting game fan in general! Now to drive the studio crazy... MK11 needs to have Erron Black back, Noob Saibot as the main antagonist, Kabal, and human Smoke. Hopefully the story takes us back to the main fighters and a tournament. I think Takeda would make an awesome new tournament champion. Plus, we need stage transitions, stage fatalities, Hara Kiri, the new character customization from Injustice 2, and (wishful thinking)... A Konquest mode! I love Mortal Kombat!
