The Mortal Kombat franchise has long been a classic of good fighting game and a standard for the quality of this genre. Games of this series, which have been released since 1992, are famous for their cruelty and violence (even in comparison with other games of the genre), and cruel deaths - colorful ends have long been a hallmark of the game.
The MK series itself has come a long way over the years during which there have been both strong and famous games and rather controversial projects. The games of this series have changed both the developer and the publisher, but the franchise has always been true to its roots. That is why it has got an army of fans. Mortal Kombat is a multiplayer video game in the genre of fighting. NetherRealm Studios develop this mind blowing game. Warner Bros, Interactive Entertainment are the publisher of this game. Like its predecessor, it is a 2.5D style fighting game.
Mortal Kombat Plot
If I talk about the plot in one sentence, being a person who either did not play or remembers the events of past games, then this sentence is most suitable for describing a story campaign. However, this does not mean at all that the story mode in the game is only possible for those who have been playing Mortal Kombat since 1992. The story of the new part continues the story of Mortal Kombat X, and one of the main characters of the game. Raiden will again have to save the world from the hands of evil with the help of his loyal friends. In the plot, you will find many unexpected moments and interesting events.
If we talk about the single-player mode in the new MK 11, then if you go to that rare category of gamers who love a good story in fighting games, then this game will definitely not disappoint you. Well, plus you’ll always find out something detailed about your favorite characters in the series interesting and nice.
Mortal Kombat Gameplay
Every gamer knows that the main foundation of any good fighting game is a suitable combat system. Over the years, the Mortal Kombat series has regularly worked on this aspect and has always added something new to the game. In Mortal Kombat 11, developers have made the gameplay enjoyable and useful.
You can always study in detail the various tricks of your favorite character and try out various combinations and special tricks (such as the standard Scorpion Kunai or Sub-Ziro freezing). In addition, various combo attacks and special moves are easy to do in battles.
Even the person who picks up the controller for the first time and plays for the first character that comes across can easily make a couple of simple combo attacks by pressing everything.
However, the game is well suited for experienced players, because it has a huge number of different combinations and mastering some of them perfectly, as well as not forgetting about protection. a player can fight well not only against bots but also with other players in multiplayer. Also, the game has the so-called “Fatal Blow” - a fatal blow performed when your opponent has less than a third of his health. This technique looks very colorful, but it can be performed only once per fight.
Hotel mention in the game are famous fatalities. The developers are well aware that it was this cruel and colorful finishing touch that has already become the famous calling card of the series, and the word itself is tightly used even by those who do not really play fighting games and have not even heard of Mortal Kombat games. What about death? The developers, as always, did not disappoint the players and you can look at the bright, violent and colorful finishing moves of opponents forever. Each character has two different deaths and all are equally bright and spectacular. Numerous videos with deaths of MK 11 characters have long had a lot of views and are strongly discussed. But as you know, it’s a special pleasure to do this yourself after a difficult victory over the enemy.
Mortal Kombat Customization
This feature is relatively new for the Mortal Kombat franchise. Now in the new part, you can dress your favorite hero as you like, creating his own style and choosing the necessary elements of clothing. Making money, you can buy certain items of clothing in the game. I would like to note that the skins in the game are purely cosmetic and do not affect any character abilities in battle. For the majority of fans of the series this will not be a very important element. However, its presence is still worth considering as a plus, since it is quite a bit, but it adds quality to the gameplay.
Mortal Kombat Heroes
After the gameplay, good and interesting characters are another important aspect of any fighting game. In the Mortal Kombat series, everything was always in order with this. In the new part there are, like all the usual heroes like the same Scorpio, Sub-Ziro, Barack, Johnny Cage, Kano, Sonya and others, as well as new characters like Geras, Collector and Centurion. The presence of a large number of good old heroes (albeit not all) will please fans of the franchise. But new characters add quality to the game and can also gain popularity among players. As you might guess, each hero has his own arsenal of combo hits, special techniques and of course fatality. In total, several dozens of characters are available, but most likely with the release of new additions and updates their list will expand.
Mortal Kombat Conclusion
What about the new Mortal Kombat 11? This game has well maintained its original concept. But at the same time has introduced a number of elements that significantly improve the gameplay. In the new part, great graphics and amazing animation of the movements of the heroes, which gives reality to what is happening. The gameplay both in the story mode and in the ordinary passage of the tower or in the battle with a live player pleases and is able to drag out for long hours. Music and sound effects in the game are also at their best and can give the game dynamics. As a result, you have a good and reliable franchise that not only maintains its traditions but is constantly developing, bringing something new and beautiful to the world of fighting games.
