There has been a lot of fighting games out there but I don’t remember any of them being as rich featured and as graphically superior than MK. The backgrounds come alive and are very active and detailed. The character models are done so well and perfectly hit with just the right amount of active lighting effects that it beats some of the most impressive lighting in games today.
The amount of sure characters and options of fighting styles is also very good. Most fighting games don’t give you access to most of their characters. MK decided to go another route and give you an almost full roster to begin with. All your favorites are back for this event. Even the ones that died in previous games are back. So you can put sub zero against the fallen Liu Kang if you want. They even brought back weapons into the game.
Then we have the online battles around the world. This is a done especially nice. You can even watch others and rank them on their performance and when it’s your turn they can do the same for you. I have to warn you though, you better know what you are doing as there are serious experts out there that can rip you up without a moment’s notice. It’s pretty brutal I must warn you. If you have the ps4 you will be happy to know that the online works great for this game as well as many others as of late to my surprise. It seems PlayStation is getting better at this online security thing, network connection speeds and consistency. Add that to the already graphical superior version of the game and you have a masterpiece. Fatalities also are pretty much done to the utmost shock. This is where I will caution those parents to avoid this game. Or if you low tolerance for violence don’t buy this game. I myself have some step back feelings about this game in areas too. So I’m not endorsing the game for everyone. But if you like and have played Mortal kombat before then this will feel like home to you. Bottomed line I think this is probably the best looking, feature rich fighting game to date right now and all others should follow suit.
