Rated 8 out of 10
by JohnathanCage Good, but where's Smoke?
Seriously, one of the best characters in Mortal Kombat (2011) and he's not playable in the base game? That was severely disappointing. I'm really hoping he's DLC. Also the online portion really should've improved from the last one. It hasn't improved one bit, and putting up with this lag is infuriating.
Rated 4 out of 10 by Millione773 Could've and Should've Been Better
I just don't understand microtransactions and why these games need. them. I bought this game new and I regret it. I should have bought it pre-owned because after 7 days I was back to playing other games.
- Ermac is a beast. I never thought much of him before but now he is one of my favorites. They did a great job with his character.
- Shinnok returning was a good idea (too bad Quan Chi had an early departure at the hands of Scorpion.)
- No Noob No Smoke they must not even want a good review
- Corrupted Shinnok not playable now.
- All the new characters are trash except Erron Black and Cassie.
- why have old characters like Jax, Cage and Sonya if you got these new younger characters that are their family. Or why have these new characters at all?
- Realistically they could have added more classic characters.
- Wack campaign (as expected tho)
- Wack online
- Kotal Kahn isn't even half the emperor Shao Kahn was
I can go on but what's the point it doesn't matter I already spent my money. Buy it used if you have to get it.
Rated 9 out of 10 by NoManLeftBehind Really good.
Its a great game kinda like injustice. BUT better i think fatality's a better than ever and the character detail is really good. kombos are not the most simple thing to perform but once you do get it down its really fun to do and master. Graphics are REALLY nice on next gen and the maps all have very good detail. i would totally consider buying this game if you are a MK fan.
Rated 7 out of 10 by Arthainius Fun for about 10 hours
There is no doubt this is a great MK game but this series is getting pretty tired. They amped up the gore and finishing moves and added classes to the fighters. Alot of the identity of these fighters has been completely lost from where they started out. Its like they tried to make everyone who was cool a good guy and everyone we didn't care for a bad guy. Its really odd and doesn't really work for me on how the lore has played out. The story mode is extremely short and the ending was super painfully awkward. Its very tempting to just skip the videos the lore has gotten so bad. As far as the actual fighting its very precise (until you go online) . I was able to chain combos to completely wipe my opponents health when using raiden. That was a really cool feeling as well as seeming very broken. After about 10 hours I was pretty good at online but got sooo boring. Im not sure how people can play these games for multiple hours on multiple days. Good game for parties though. Get drunk people fighting on a video game and you will keep people from fighting IRL.... known party fact
Rated 8 out of 10 by kdizz Weak Roster. Fun Game.
As someone who has not played an MK game since a SEGA installment, I found the classic style controls very nostalgic, but still fun. The gameplay is fluid and the graphics are good. It is definitely a great game to sit down and play with a friend. However, the roster is far more lackluster than I had anticipated. There are some of the classic characters like Lui Kang, Sub-Zero, Scorpion, and Reptile. However, the roster is very minuscule. There are currently a handful of fighters available via DLC, but this marketing ploy is frustrating. If I pay $60+ for a fighting game I want more fighters than this. However, the gameplay is very entertaining, and I will probably bite the bullet and purchase the DLC, but I won't be happy about it....
Rated 6 out of 10 by gamercouple12313 Don't like paying for characters
Ok game but I think it sucks that you have to pay 5 bucks a piece for new characters. I mean seriously isn't paying 60 for the game enough? I miss the old days when hard work got you new stuff.
Rated 10 out of 10 by Critz242 Excellent Game!
Everything about this game is just thrilling and exciting. I love the idea of faction wars, and besides playing online the game in general is great.
The graphics have improved drastically since 2011 and its great because for those who have never played a game in the series and is interested in getting this one, they would still be able to understand the story line because in the game they generalize pretty much everything that's happened. I still miss a lot of the characters removed, but there adding DLC and hopefully I'll be able to play as them again and a lot of the new characters are great. So, to sum this up, any MK fan or anyone interested in joining in the series, I recommend it.
Rated 9 out of 10 by GrizzCrisps Great game, Good graphics, Good Sound, To much DLC
This game has got to be the best Mortal Kombat game in the series. The fighting is smooth, combos feel great, the game looks great, the sound is great. Its a really in-depth game with each character having 3 different variants. The only problem i have with this game are the amount of characters there is only around 25 characters (excluding DLC) which brings me up to another problem... There is WAY to much DLC in this game, every where you look there are microtransactions, skins, characters, and one of the worst DLC ever created in a game "Easy fatality" Overall its a great game with a good story great visuals but way to much DLC
Rated 10 out of 10 by RJACK BEST MK GAME YET!

Rated 9 out of 10 by iProbie Great addition!
Like Mortal Kombat? Get it. Like fighting games? Get it. Like gore? Get it. My only real complaints is I feel like there could have been more fighters, and story a bit longer. I completed the story in one sitting, about 3 or 4 hours. The story was good though despite how short it was. Some old faces and some new ones, but still good ole blood and guts Mortal Kombat.
