It’s perfectly brutal fun that will work in the right circle of friends or foes for months. Graphics, combat physics, interaction with the environment, diversity of characters and many more positives make this game an event of this season at least. [Issue#252]

It is great to see series as long-running as this one still impressing over two decades later. Fans of fighting games should definitely take the plunge.

Fantastically violent and built for online players and loners alike. [Issue#124, p.72]

Mortal Kombat X improves upon a classic franchise in nearly every way. From its surprisingly impressive story, to its great new characters, to its expansive amount of new content, Mortal Kombat is a must-play for any fans of the series.

90

Its technically precise gameplay, lean storyline and gruesomely gorgeous graphics run circles around the previous entries in the series. To be honest, this could have been a perfect game if it didn’t feel like NetherRealm was constantly trying to get me to spend extra money on it.

88

Mortal Kombat X is a feature-packed experience that sets the bar high for content in fighters this gen. While it doesn’t eclipse the previous Mortal Kombat’s amount of content, it does surpass all of its other competitors.

88

From its great roster of fighters and styles to its fast gameplay and snappy controls MKX has a lot of positives going for it. It’s as gruesome and stomach churning as it has ever been and that is exactly why we all love it.

88

As good as we were expecting. An excellent fighting game that comes with plenty of game modes, including a history mode that manages to offer a different take on the standard a-b-c of fighting games.

88

A must buy for every fighting games fan: violent, contents-rich and with a very good – even if a bit on the short side – story. Its only real flaw is the weak netcode, yet better than the one in the previous game.

88

Mortal Kombat X is an excellent iteration with great new features that make it feel fresh in every sense. A visual overhaul, new fighting styles and a rich online experience that, despite minor flaws, remains as the ultimate tool to test yourself against other players around the world, make MKX a must have for lovers of the fighting genre.

85

Overall, Mortal Kombat X is great. The small improvements in the fighting system make a huge difference for the better, and the new fighters feel like they fit perfectly with the old cast.

85

NetherRealm has outdone itself with Mortal Kombat X, delivering an uncompromising fighting game that revels in blood-drenched ultra-violence. Not just essential for Mortal Kombat fans, MK X is something that deserves to be enjoyed by all fight fans over the age of 18. Brutality!

85

While the netcode needs to be improved, offline kombatants will find plenty to do and can enjoy one of the best story modes in beat-em-up history. Dear or Alive? Tekken? Street Fighter? Finish Them!

85

Mortal Kombat X is the best release in the series so far, not just because it respects the roots of the series, but also because it innovates through things like character variations and living towers.

84

Its universe keeps getting harder and harder to take seriously, and its microtransactions are borderline gross, but Mortal Kombat X is a great fighting game all the same.

80

In a world of 200 hour RPG epics, it’s nice to have something so focused on a core experience. There’s depth here for those seeking it, or you can just make visitors cringe by showing them all the bone-breakers and finishers. Look, Nanna, this guy gets his spine ripped out through his mouth.

80

Even though Mortal Kombat X has a few surface wounds that could use patching up, it’s a superb fighting game that lives up to its hype and meets the lofty expectations set by its predecessor.

80

Everything that was good about Mortal Kombat, is still there. The game offers a very entertaining fighting system for newbies and more competitive players, plus a fair amount of single-player content, new characters, great online modes and of course bloody, gory violence.

80

A great roster with a wide range of diverse fighting styles and variations gives you plenty to play around with, and the new fighting mechanics add the right amount of depth to nudge Mortal Kombat X ever higher on the list of respectable fighting games.

80

If you’ve had your fill of Killer Instinct and are looking for another rad fighter on the Xbox One, look no further. Great characters, solid online play and loads of content make this a bit of a kracker.

80

Mortal Kombat X moves forward with a snappier version of the previous game’s fighting and some cool new characters, but the story and other features around the edges feel a bit rough in spots.

Game Reviews from around the web

Until Tekken, Street Fighter, and the rest of the fighting-game crowd makes a current-gen splash, fighting freaks should waste no time buying this.

Summary

Mortal Kombat X is the best release in the series so far, not just because it respects the roots of the series, but also because it innovates through things like character variations and living towers.
