Rated 8 out of 10 by NewbornRiddler Great addition, but missing out...
This was a great addition to the franchise with new characters to add to it. Although they took out some loved characters in a way it almost makes sense. They died in the last game and therefore were not part of the story really. I realize they could have still added them, but what can you do? The game succeeds on sticking to its core elements while embracing new ones. It's obvious they went with the Injustice style of gameplay a little more than the normal Mortal Kombat (if you've played both you'll understand). Its a fun play with friends and the characters this time around more balanced than the previous game so all of you who spam teleport can be outmatched. I'd recommend this game, but keep in mind some things have changed and it has a lot more Injustice elements than you'd think (I know its by the same company). The story is short, but some parts are interesting. It's very generic in terms of storytelling, but explains a little more about the characters that are new and old. So if you're into fighters go ahead and try this game out it's fun alone and with friends
Rated 2 out of 10 by stretch88 Bad game
The reboot in 2011 was a much better game with more characters and took the original story... Scorpions signautre get over here was always back back x or square the buttons are changed once again. Kotal khan is not even remotely as challenging as show khan. There's classic characters barracka striker sindel smoke and rain are in the story but you can be them.... Noob isn't even in the game either the graphics are better n more gruesome but if your a hardcore mk fan from the beginning like I am this is garbage.

Its technically precise gameplay, lean storyline and gruesomely gorgeous graphics run circles around the previous entries in the series. To be honest, this could have been a perfect game if it didn’t feel like NetherRealm was constantly trying to get me to spend extra money on it.

Their has been a lot of MK games but they were mainly based on things that they just retold MK 1 2 3 was remade in MK9 the only one that was different was MK VS DC which was a NO COMMENT but this game their completely and literally going 20yrs in the future with brand new characters such as KOTAL KAHN D'VORAH FERRA/TORR CASSIE CAGE (sound familiar) and MUCH MUCH MORE plus retro characters such as RAIDEN KANO AND THE KINGS OF MK SCORPION AND SUB-ZERO and again much much more REMEMBER this is next gen so it'll look great watch the trailer If u are a MK nerd like me SUBBY AND STING we're not fighting in the living forest but an EARTHRELM forest already CONTROVERSY AND if that's not enough theirs a BROKEN SPINE POSTER IN IT FOR Ya. Get ready for More blood and guts FATALITIES and BABALITIES SO ( GET OVER HERE) too your nearest GameStop But I just have one last question for my MK BROS AND SISTERS JUST (WHO'S NEXT?!?!)CAUTION u might be lost if u hasn't played MK9 if u wanna buy it theirs a KOMPLETE EDITION edition it comes with all the DLC for MK9 FOR A VERY LOW PRICE THANK YOU AND ENJOY MKX
Rated 1 out of 10 by MKFanButNotAnymore THIS GAME IS TRASH
This should be the best Mortal Kombat ever made, but due to the large amount of spammers in this game it is the worst one ever. You can't find a match without being spammed with projectiles, trapped into an inescapable corner combo, or being lagged to death. Not to mention the fact that they once again made Scorpion the most OP character and gave Mileena unpunishable wakeup attacks. Also.. WAKEUP ATTACKS ARE TRASH. All around horrible online gameplay.

Rated 8 out of 10 by BrettM888 really good game but....
i love this game! i really loved the (2011) one! this game is really cool the graphics gameplay and story! but, they added a lot of new characters which isnt bad its actually really cool! but, they took away so many too! shaung sung, jade, sindel, skarlet, kabal, noob, stryker, night wolf, rain, and so many more! i miss them and wish they would just add extra characters for us to play when we want on our own not story!!! i think they should make a DLC with them! (PS sorry if i misspelled) hopefully this helps you!
Rated 10 out of 10 by MMNoobie Nostalgia with 2015 graphics
This is the best Mortal Kombat i have played in years!!! I believe you me I used to get my hiney kicked at MK2 in pizza places all growing up. Seriously though, awesome characters, story mode is solid, classic tower mode and the tower mode with modifiers, plus online play. Couldn't be happier with this game.
Rated 6 out of 10 by williamL12345 good MK but....
Mortal kombat x the next installment from nether realm studios great kombat but same wear and tear story didn't have much sense too it anyways too many new characters and too little MK legends returned needs way more ninjas and less new characters don't care too much at all for the new characters at all except for takeda and kotal khan
Rated 9 out of 10 by DragonAgeRox666 Does the Series Proud!!!
This is the best Mortal Kombat I've ever played. The graphics are amazing, the sound is impressive, the story is pretty good, and the controls are responsive. I love the variations that each character has. They open up whole new combat choices for each character. If your a MK fan or just a gory fighting game fan, this is the xbone game for you. Now; GET OVER HERE, and FIGHT!!!
