VGChartz's Evan Norris: "Regardless of any poor business decisions by Warner Bros. and NetherRealm, Mortal Kombat X stands tall as the pinnacle of the Mortal Kombat franchise. The game's modes, especially story mode and Faction War, are deep and engaging. The fighting mechanics, which have been well refined over the last four years, are complex and challenging. And, on a technical level, the game shines - long gone are the wooden models and animations from Mortal Kombat (2011).
Fighting game fans looking for a smart, feature-rich fighter with huge replay value should look no further than Mortal Kombat X. However, anyone on a budget who nonetheless wants a complete roster may want to wait for the inevitable "Komplete" edition."
