Can MK: X do its predecessors justice? Gameondaily reviews the latest Mortal Kombat game and decides whether the game lives up to the hype.
I loved this game but for some reason I love killer instinct so much more. I think it's Because I spent so much time learning killer instinct and I just can't put the same time on mk. Good game though but both are very different.
Yeah the thing with this is, there are so many variations now that it will take ages to learn and master characters so it will be a time hog. But its worth it. Killer Instinct's netcode rips this apart though. Seriously. I was playing against people in the USA and it was so smooth on KI that it was literally like I was playing offline. This on the other hand, is the same as MK9, albeit maybe slightly better. You have to join the rooms in your country in order to find games that will have decent connectivity. Other than that, its a wicked game let down by a story that I personally didnt find as engaging as MK9, the DLC model which is horrid and the online netcode.
That's NetherRealm for you, they haven't made a game with decent netcode yet. They need to hire some competent people with WB's money.
