When I was a kid, Mortal Kombat was what all the cool kids played. We were all way too young to play it, but we did anyway. Now close to 30 years later, I got a chance to play Mortal Kombat 11. Which is the first Mortal Kombat I’ve played since the days of the Xbox, I think.
The story is quite a bit into the rebooted Mortal Kombat Legend. Like the original timeline, Liu Kang was tragically killed, but this time by the thunder god Raiden. Now a vengeful undead warrior, he’s basically waged war against the good.
Things get complicated when a deity who can mess with time brings all the fighters from the past into to this new future. There’s going to be a lot of awkward meetups.
The game play is about the same as other Mortal Kombat games. You have the story mode which will take several hours to beat. Then you also have local modes and of course online multiplayer.
Overall, I was a bit disappointed by Mortal Kombat 11. It still plays like a game from 1993. Despite the better graphics, that’s not a good quality. The story was boring, and the online play really did not save it for me. I can see why I took a hiatus with the series, and this might be my last one.
