Forums - Gaming Discussion - MK11 is a grind fest, with Microtransactions

Well I guess, there are a lot of review sites that are waiting for the MTX store to launch before they post their reviews.

I watched Yongyea's video, and I think I'll just wait to see how the store turns out. I don't need Shao Khan. I've yet to play MKX so I might just pick up the GotY version of that instead.

Edit: Adding Yongyea's video to the OP.

The 3 most important review sites with Destructoid being the best. A Grindy fighting game? Uh yeeaaa? What fighting game series isnt grindy? Your lost Definitely. MK is leader in regards to a fully packed fighter.

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.

I think Smash Bros have it beat. Still lots of content in MK games though.

Oh shit! I forgot about Smash.Smash Ultimate is super grindy as well.

Nah, Smash Ultimate isn't grindy. I just did the story mode and got everything naturally.

That's probably additional fatalities.

I know, but still. 

MKX actually had fatalities as DLC.

Personally, I don't care. I bought standard edition now, eventually I can get the complete package for a low price.

I did that with MKX, Injustice 2 and I'll do that with that game as well. For now though, I'm content with the game as is.

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.

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.

While half the men barley have pants on. 

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.
