I stopped bothering given attention to this game after they stated the women would be covered up while I was seeing males wearing a strip of clothing. Big red flag right there and I know it's going to be a shit show in other areas from that point on. Looks like a bunch of angry, sexually frustrated women developed the game. From what I have seen, I can't believe how far they actually took that philosophy, looks like a bunch of Nuns fighting among the Mortal Kombat characters I know. Sad to hear it is a grind, mobile like game too but the up side is, the market is saturated with fighters so you can easily pick up many others at a largely reduced cost.

They still show skin and some of their costumes aren't fully covered up. I mean yes their balloon boobs are non existent and not in your face as it use too but they aren't completely fully clothed. Sonya still has her crop tops, the majority of them still have boob windows, and some still show thighs.

While half the men barley have pants on.

Destructoid didn't like the game either. That sinks it for me. I'll pass on this for now. Glad I cancelled my pre-order. 

Its like we read 2 different reviews. A top tier fighthing game that could on the be the best in the series. Thats in the last 2 paragraphs.  The man clearly likes the game.

Nearly 30 years later, Mortal Kombat still deserves to hang in the top-tier of fighting games. With improved visuals, overhauled mechanics and exciting strategic potential, MK 11 offers a brilliant fighting experience. Unfortunately, the overall fun is bogged down with miserable modern-day business practices that frequently pump the brakes on your enjoyment. The Fight is the thing, however, and as long as the fists are flying, then Mortal Kombat 11 packs a helluva punch.

He's basically saying that the game is like a delicious pizza, that has been ruined with rotten mayonnaise thrown on top . He scored it a 7.

The sentence below is false. 
The sentence above is true. 

How grindy is it... compared to MK9?



Hunting Season is done...

Maybe its just me but I probably care as little as possible about how much cloths the developers want to put on the women or not.  Instead, is the fighting engine good.  Does it play well and fun.  Is the single player also fun to play.  Probably about the last thing I care about is how much skin I see on digital characters.  From watching enough streams, the game gives ample amount of costumes and a lot of them look great.  The game in general looks like it contains a lot of content for the people who enjoy single player and the Multiplayer is tight and responsive.  Not sure as a fighter what isn't good about this addition.

Just as grindy but guess what.  You can create an AI character set it to play an endless tower and let it grind for you for all those cosmetic items if you really do not want to play the single player and tower stuff.  Its the same thing you could do in InJustice 2 if you wanted to skip that part of the game.

No, no, no. You probably didn't understand. We need PIXEL TITIES, alright? This is highly important. Pixel Titties. There aren't enough places online where we can see them already so we need our pixel tits EVERYWHERE. If the men walk around half naked the ladys must do the same. Equality, yo!

Also, other fighting games show their female combattants in much, much more revealing outfits so Mortal Kombat surely needs to step up its game. It's highly important, I tell you. Otherwise the quality of the game suffers immensely. Pixel titties.

We needs them Big and bouncy. Precious big bouncy boobs. The three Bs to a successful game.

I haven't had a whole lot of time with MK11 yet, but I've finished all the main tutorials, tower tutorials, and a couple character specific tutorials, as well as finished up through Chapter 4 of the main story.

It definitely seems like unlocking everything would take an enormous amount of time, but I don't know that I would call it "grindy", as it doesn't seem like something you'd really "grind" for. The rewards you get in the Krypt seem to be random, but I could be wrong.

The amount of Kosmetic items in the game is absolutely insane. Each character has close to 100 unique, unlockable character details, split between costumes, weapons, masks, etcetera. Scorpion, for example, has a category of spear heads.

In addition to these costume pieces, there are also unlockable fatalities and brutalities for each character, as well as between-round taunts, the animation that plays at the beginning of a match, and the victory pose.

There's also a ton of koncept art for each character (roughly 8 per character), and you can unlock maybe 20 music tracks, and another 50 to 100 main story concept art pieces.

And that's not all. Each player has their unique "Kombat Kard", which shows your level, icon, background picture, etcetera. There seems to be hundreds of kustomizable art assets that you can unlock to show off your achievements.

I'm probably forgetting something, as there are truly a mega crap ton of unlockables.

I haven't played enough yet to notice any sort of "scam", or incentive to spend money.

Now THAT'S what I'm talking about!
