    Easily going to be a 5/5 game for me, the only negative is going to be online cos there is no fun in online multiplayer gaming

    Fighting games are a niche genre so you can’t expect everyone to like them.
    Among the fighting game community this is gonna be huge!

    I know! Let's get someone who knows nothing about fighting games, but played the older ones once upon a time and remembers fondly that it smiled in his direction which made him blush and run off.

    Seriously get someone who knows a little bit more about the fight game genre to write these reviews for games (specifically) in the fighting game genre.

    I love the MK series. I'm looking forward to playing MK11 tonight.
    I find your lack of faith disturbing.

    Well written review, but to be fair I don’t think you’re gonna get a great review coming from someone who just dabbles in fighting games from time to time. This game is getting great reviews everywhere else, and if you’re just gonna fart around in the towers and story mode, that’s not really getting the full experience. There’s tons of mechanics and stuff that go into it that a fighting game fan will really appreciate.

    Not bashing you Eury, just pointing that out. It’s like if you got me to review a Madden game. I absolutely don’t care about sports or wouldn’t get the features so I’d probably rate it a lot lower than someone who’s more well versed would.

    I agree with this too... However I actually get bored of fighting games real fast when playing solo and I never take time to thoroughly understand deep mechanics in fighting games. Just the special moves and a easy to pull off combo.

    I feel Eurys impressions in this review is exactly how I myself am going to perceive this game.

    I miss the Konqest and extra modes from PS2 era (like Puzzle or Kart Racing) so the fact that MK focuses more on fighting these days and less on Easter eggs and bonus modes saddens me. I'm very aware that's hugely the unpopular opinion.

    Maybe you were just going for honesty which I appreciate or maybe you were trying to review through the eyes of someone without a lot of fighting experience either way it felt like you explained why you shouldn’t review a fighting game and then reviewed a fighting game. I really do like it when people put in personal stories in their reviews, it does a lot of good things for the review but in this case you seemed to just discredit yourself.

    I was glad to see they had multiple things to do in the game, the 3rd person mini game has me extremely interested to see what is going on with it. I wonder how much help paying for real money can help in this game. Can you buy the character equipment you want or pay to increase the level? Like the reviewer this aspect of the game has me worried.

    It’s Mortal Kombat, I think at least a sentence should have been designated for fatalities,haha.

    Will pass after they simply had to crowbar politics and wokeness into it.
    Too much work, not enough games
