random genres graphics themes release type stats videos

MK11 is a great fighting game, certainly the most full-featured and entertaining Mortal Kombat games since MK9, and possibly the best the series has ever been. The Story Mode is without a doubt the most entertaining story mode in any fighting game, and the core fighting itself is rock solid, with excellent graphics and sound to make the experience seem all the more impressive.
The Story Mode is delightfully over-the-top with entertaining and well-directed battle sequences, and lots of cool callbacks to earlier games.
Apart from that, the Klassic Towers give you a classic MK experience with a set of fights with a boss at the end. The basic combat being so good and the characters being so varied, this is plenty entertaining without all the random rule changes of the Towers of Time mode.

    I think my favourite online shop fucked up and sent this to me 5 days before the release date! What a nice Easter surprise!

    I can't stream this on PlayStation (yet): 'Cannot use the selected feature with this application'.

    completed the game on Medium difficulty (Story Mode). I just beat the Story Mode in 5 hours. Very easy, more cutscenes than gameplay, but still extremely entertaining. There was a lot of over-the-top costume drama with giant battles, and lots of cool callbacks to earlier games. Very hard not to like.

    I took a chance and published my full story mode playthrough today, before anyone else on YouTube. I had a couple of fun hours watching the video get over 10K views, before it was taken down by a Warner copyright claim. It's completely fair, I just hope that I can release the video later.

    I tried playing the Time Towers, but the konnection keeps resetting, so it's almost unplayable right now. Maybe I should postpone playing this until release.

    I played an hour of versus mode with Malu and Anders.

    I played a bunch of matches with Martin and Marius, getting destroyed by Marius' Noob Saibot. When I got home, I played through a Time Tower with Jax. The next tower I got booted from the server, but at least it's getting better...

    I finally managed to beat a Time Tower with Jax. And then an error when I tried again with Liu Kang.

    Another day, another failed attempt at completing a tower and getting a server error, dropping me to the main menu. Apart from Story Mode, this game is unplayable.

    Still searching for a solution to the server disconnect problem, I found a post by dings1337 on mortalkombatonline.com that suggested setting up a router DMZ for the PS4. I'm trying that.

    It worked! After setting up the DMZ, I have played for hours without any server issues. Finally, I can fully enjoy this great game.
  • 9662
    I completed a couple of Towers of Time using Liu Kang and Scorpion.
  • 9663
    I played online with Malu for a while, trying out some new stuff with Baraka.
  • 9664
    All players have received a bonus of 500,000 Koins and other stuff, and I've been spending it all in the Krypt. I got an Ermac ability so I can get the green glowing things.

    I played a bunch of matches with Erik, and he's become much harder to beat after he's been practicing. His Skarlet is particularly mean.
