Popular franchises come and go. Titans of industry rise and fall into oblivion. Some endure, and others fade to memories. Mortal Kombat’s one of those series that have experienced the highest of highs, the lowest of lows, yet has always marched on pumping its blood-soaked fists. Luckily Developer NetherRealm’s been on a roll lately, putting the travesty that was Mortal Kombat vs. DC Universe completely behind them and delivering a product that builds on the improvements that peeked their heads in Mortal Kombat 9 and Injustice to make Mortal Kombat X the smoothest, most fun Mortal Kombat yet.
