Have you ever had that one guy that’s entertaining, but only because he isn’t very nice? Like, he treats you decently, but most of his comedy comes from upsetting others? You still find it funny, but you also feel a bit off about whether or not you should still be supporting his actions. That’s Mortal Kombat X for me in a nutshell. An entertaining bully which you feel bad for liking.
When the going’s good, it’s really good. Mortal Kombat X looks great. The detail in each fighter is breath-taking. The animations are to a very high standard with characters reacting quite realistically to wherever they’ve been hit, though it would have been more realistic for some fighters to stay down after the beatings they receive.
