Review Roundup: Mortal Kombat 11 Seems to Be Bloody, Brilliant, and One of the Best Entries in the 27 Year Old Franchise

Nether Realm Studios latest title, Mortal Kombat 11, seems like it was just announced at the Video Game Awards back in Demeber, but here we are covering the game’s official launch day with a review roundup!

Developers Nether Realm made a great decision by keeping the game under wraps until the very last second because now fans won’t have to wait an eternity for it to release. And on top of that, from early reviews, the game is pretty good!

It’s not rocket science to know that creating and maintaining a fighting title franchise for 27 years is no easy feat, however, it seems that Nether Realm Studios manages to keep pulling it off. The leatst entry in the series is set to have a crazy fun story, some awesome bloody violent combos, and a slew of online longevity.

Down below are some of the most respectable gaming sites in the industry, check out the highlights for their reviews on Nether Realm Studios latest title — Mortal Kobat 11.

Stuffed with masses of modes and a veritable avalanche of stuff to do, Mortal Kombat 11 is the best the series has ever looked, sounded and most importantly, played. Oh and it doesn’t hurt either that it just so happens to have one of the best story modes ever made, too.

Whether you just plan on stopping by for the story and messing around with friends locally every once in a while, or plan on going hardcore into online play, you’ll have plenty to do, and you’ll have plenty of fun doing it until whenever the next Mortal Kombat game comes out some time in the next generation.

Mortal Kombat 11 is the best game in the 27-year-old series thanks to deep, methodical new mechanics and fun story.

Game Informer
Review in Progress
Unless the online component is a mess (and that’s the avenue of play you will spend the most time with), I urge you all to dive into this game’s ridiculously fun campaign and tower challenges, which are as bloody as they are brilliant.

GameSpot
[Provisional Score = 80]
There’s a diverse roster of interesting characters and playstyles, and the story mode is an entertaining romp. The unfulfilling approaches to the game’s dynamic single-player content and progression may feel like they’ve totally whiffed (at least at this early stage), but Mortal Kombat 11 hits where it matters.
