Mortal Kombat 11 Review: Kataclysmic Khaos (Page 3)

At its heart, Mortal Kombat 11 is a fantastic explosion of nostalgia, fun, and absolute stylish chaos the series if known for. All of the beats are present--a deep, winding storyline infused with a surprisingly complex lore, the old-school WWE-style soap opera antics, and the machismo that captured an entire generation.

The fighters are all extremely well designed, and the new faces--Geras, Cetrion, and Kollector to name a few--jump right in as if they've always been a part of the show. That intense magnetism that's pulled us in for the past 27 years is present, as is the bloody, thrilling magic of a fight to the death. There are a few dips this time around with progression and a severe grind, but these features could be welcome for hardcore fans that aim to spend lots and lots of time with this iteration.

What's Hot

+ Combat is visceral, smooth, and satisfying

+ The story fantastically blends 27 years of history with present lore

+ Visuals, cinematics, and graphics are incredible

+ Practice mode is amazing

+ Character roster is great

+ Massive amounts of customization options

What's Not

- Absolutely terrible grind mechanics ensure the game lives on, but also becomes a meticulous time sink

- Randomized Krypt rewards

- Towers of Time can only be played online

- Microtransactions don't really need to be in the game
