Bloody and brutal button smashing at its best, Mortal Kombat X takes all the elements we so enjoyed from the arcade original and finally brings them to the console.
PROS
Easy to learn fighting system; Visually compelling brutality; Lots of unlockable content
CONS
Cut scenes in Story Mode a tad long; Lacking a few iconic characters
VERDICT
While the series’ power may have waned with recent iterations, MKX feels like a real return to form by NetherRealm. The studio has kept this new title as simple as possible, focusing purely on the elements that made the original so great: no holds barred action, speedy button mashing gameplay and absurdly bloody fights.
