Mortal Kombat X is a game in which you can slice off an opponent's face and watch it slowly peel away to reveal half a brain and twitching tongue falling out of the open skull. If that all sounds a little too strong for your liking, then perhaps you've never heard of Mortal Kombat before. And it gets much worse too. Or better, depending on your point of view.
To discuss MK X as a game that only offers unabated buckets of blood and offal is to do it a massive disservice. NetherRealm's follow-up to 2011's Mortal Kombat is so much more, taking lessons learned from Injustice: Gods Among Us to make for the deepest and most content-laden instalment in the series to date. It's insane.
