Mortal Kombat (2011)

Break it Down
5 November 2011
  • Excerpt: Summary [9.5 out of 10] After years of shifting to a 3D format, the Mortal Kombat series has come back to its 2D roots and the results are bloody and glorious. Something of a reboot, Mortal Kombat has a lot to offer with a large roster of fighters, a new story, tons of modes, plenty of secrets, fatalities, tons of blood and an improved fighting system that feels fluid and exciting.

Mortal Kombat Review

  • Excerpt: Mortal Kombat is back with a franchise reboot promised to take fighting titles a full step forward. For a franchise that is beloved by gamers of almost all ages it’s a bold marketing ploy to say this is the best game in the franchise’s history. However, with an extremely deep storyline mode and a totally remade control system which is nothing short of awesome, Mortal Kombat (which is out for Xbox 360 and PS3) is a really great fighting title.

  • Excerpt: As you wake up, get ready, and drive into the city for work every day, do you ever wonder if there are epic crime-fighting saviors out there somewhere, hidden amidst all of our mundane daily activities and false sense of safety? Of course you do, we all do. Western culture (and beyond!) is infatuated with the idea of super heroes. Superman and Batman rival the popularity of even the most renowned brands like Coca-Cola and Mickey Mouse.

  • Excerpt: I’ve been out of the fighting genre for a long time. It’s not since Tekken 2 and Busihdo Blade that I’ve sat down and thoroughly enjoyed and learnt a fighting system. Mortal Kombat achieves something unimaginable – it’s excellent and had me hooked from the moment the story began. The game begins at the end of the series. It’s all gone tits up: Shao Kahn has won, and the body parts of Earthrealm’s heroes are scattered across the hellish shores. Whoopsie indeed.

Mortal Kombat Review

  • Summary: " Mortal Kombat " has successfully remoulded itself into a better version of what it used to be. Eschewing faux-3D and franchise tie-ins, this return to the roots of the game does everything you’d want an MK title to do, plus a little bit more.

Mortal Kombat (Xbox360)

13 May 2011
  • Excerpt: The latest game in the Mortal Kombat series is a return to form for the franchise. This is 2D fighting at its best – fast, furious and fun. It’s obvious from the outset that Mortal Kombat was created with a level of expertise, dedication and care that few games these days possess. It’s telling that Ed Boon – the director and co-creator of the original Mortal Kombat game released in 1992 – remained at the helm for this project.

25 April 2011
  • Excerpt: To a certain extent, being a Mortal Kombat devotee has also meant being a Mortal Kombat apologist. The series has never had the polished balance of Street Fighter or the depth of Tekken : It earned a place at the table by relying on controversy, palette-swapping characters, and enough spurting plasma to fill several blood banks. The last eight games were a case study in that Albert Einstein quote about insanity: doing the same thing and expecting different results.

  • Pros: + Great story mode, + Back to classic MK, + Deep fighting mechanics, + Tons of content, + Lots of secrets, + King of the Hill mode
  • Cons: Cut scenes cannot be skipped, Online lag at times

Mortal Kombat Review

22 April 2011
  • Excerpt: After many years and half a dozen mediocre-to-middling attempts to rekindle one of the biggest franchises of the 90s, Mortal Kombat is finally really back. Under the watchful eye of series co-creator Ed Boon, NetherRealm Studios has delivered the ninth game in this long-running fighting series, this time just named Mortal Kombat , and it's the best game we've seen in a good fifteen years of the series' history.
