If you are like me you grew up playing Mortal Kombat. The first Mortal Kombat actually caused quite a bit of controversy. The games were always great to me, and so simplistic. The story was easy. War between realms, decided in a tournament. Pick a fighter, win the tournament see how the story ends. Sure according to the actual story there was a definitive winner and an over all story but it was always so much fun. Admittedly I fell off the series for a bit. Sure I played nine at a friend’s house and X here and there but I never really played the story. The combat itself is fluid and graphically its beautiful, of course. It is Mortal Kombat after all.
The story here tho is amazing but weird for me. Sonya and Johnny Cage having a kid? Liu Kang and Kung Lao being dead? All that weirdness being aside the story is compelling well written, possibly the best story in the entire series and that actually pains me to say considering how much I love the rest of the series. Mortal Kombat X is a must play for fighting fans everywhere. Best wishes and may the gaming gods bring you glory.
