The story mode of Mortal Kombat X can be finished in four hours according to reports, almost half the time of the previous game.
Normally I would be upset with this short of a game length but MK has always been about the matches so as long as there are plenty of online and bot matches, I am sure players will be fine.
Plus, a four hour story for a fighter is pretty generous!
Very true, lets be honest most fighting games the story is essentially cut scenes while the matches load.
Considering how deep the game is, 4 hour single player story is more than enough. Best fighting game out there.
Fighting game story cutscene: Fighter 1: I will have vengeance! Fighter 2: You're going down!
Seems weird to me, the game seemed very story driven from all the cut-scenes that I've seen so far. The past, present, future aspect of it. All the characters having unique comments based on who they're fighting against. It doesn't bother me or anything, it just seemed like it would be longer.
You know what's funny? MKX is almost long as the order and this is a fighting game lol.
But how much of that is actual gameplay vs cutscenes? That's what im curious about. Matches tend to be fairly quick in these types of games.
So i guess mkx is a 4/10
You know what's funnier? Fighting games are the exact same thing over and over. Yet, nobody ever trashes them for that. Don't compare two completely different genres. It doesn't make sense.
I know it's not a retail game but wasn't Ori technically an exclusive. It is kind of rough though since before that was probably MCC in November. Edit: So funny that I will count indies for the xbox, yet Xbox fanboys neglect all of PlayStation's great indies.
LOL good one Bubbles for you my friend....
No one plays fighters for "story mode." Do games like Street Fighter even have story modes?
And how the The Order relate to this article exactly?
I felt MK9 was a bit too long anyways.
It wasnt long enough in my opinion. I wanted more when i finished the epic SP.
SP was excellent probably one of the best I have ever played in a fighting game. I just felt like it could have been shortened.
Longer than I expected. I'm fine with that.
I havent played a Mortal Kombat in ages. My favourite one was still Mortal Kombat Ultimate on genesis. I suppose if I can play hours long into the night MKU on the genesis with no story I could easily do it for this. I'm quite eager to play this game now
Very few people buy fighting games for their story and those that do will probably think it's Christmas come early compared to the story modes other fighting games offer. Those four hours are going to be a blast not to mention the animation for the cut scenes is top notch.
This game looks like it's going to be amazing, hopefully it lives up to all the hype it's been creating.
Thats still pretty long for a fighting game. Plus add the hours of matches and training and you got way more hours than that.
2Gb patch ouch!I will be waiting for the komplete edition them,i like to keep my games completed even for future use since i always keep previous generation machines.Some years in the future this game edition like many others will be incompleted because theres no way of download the patch so i will wait for the Komplete edition.Sad way gaming is taking!
Does anyone knows if MKX will allow 1v1 quick matches against the AI?
Wat? Sure it will have 1vs1, knowing Mortal Kombat, it will have shitloads of different gametypes.
I don't know. There wasn't in MK9, you know? I've heard that they've added that to injustice, but I haven't played that, so I woudn't know. Btw, you noticed I meant 1v1 against the AI, right? Player Vs CPU, not 1v1 player vs player.
I'm 100% sure I have played 1vs1 against AI in MK9, I have it on PC and PS3 (sold), intalling right now to make sure.
Now I have tested it and apparently there was no 1vs1 against AI! It's odd that I never ever missed it, could be cause of all the Test your luck fights I have played. :)
Didn't realize Mortal Kombat 9 was longer than four hours. Either way this is good length for a fighting game, especially compared to the lame story modes most other fighters have.
Mortal Kombat stories are awesome!
Boon said in interview it's the same time length as mk9 .....so the website saying it's only "4hrs & mk9 took them "7 & half". Who do you trust?
Trust no one.
haha...very true :)
MK has a story?
Sorry man your slow, about every game out there has a story.
Slow? I was making a point that MK, like every fighting game ever, needs no story as it is a fighting game with its roots in arcade machines. Try to keep up, buddy.
You even more slow, without a story a game and movie can not be made. You need a story to develop the character and design them even in a fighting. Virtual fighter don't have a story mode I don't think even has a arcade story but it has a storyline it's in the manual book. I wish you can respond to this but you got no bubbles left.
was about to praise a fighting game that lasts 4 hours. MK9 was 7 and a half? I really hope SFV will have some kind of story mode, they have such great characters that deserve more screen time.
Some what disappointing but not so bad considering the new living towers.
It's actually 2 hours long. Shorter than MK9's story mode but longer than Injustice's story mode.
Why people dont do any research before posting articles is beyond me. 7 1/2 hours for MK9 story mode. Really? REALLY? the way i remember it, the cutscenes were somewhere between 2.30-3 hours in length. The rest of the time was probably the fights. Shao kahn end fight took me an hour since it was cheap tactics vs cheap tactics. It took me 5 hours, my friend beat it sonner than me. So 4 hour story mode with lets say 1-1.5 hour spent on fights. Still the same length as mk9. No need to go ballistic on me, check out Videos on youtube bout mk9 story. There are videos with only cutscenes no fights and those run for about 2-3 hours.
Besides. The "source" is probably one of the people who somehow got the game early and are just rushing through it so that they can upload videos on youtube to get more views. Netherrealm is cracking down on such channels.
Just finished the story mode, was much shorter than mk9, and story felt weak to me. The story revolved around 5-7 characters only, the villain was a little b****, and everyone else just got slapped around in 2 mins. I'm one of those who actually likes the mk story line, but with this game im a bit annoyed at how the story was done, the entire time change thing from mk9 now seems pointless because certain events are repeating (I wont mention, just remember this when u watch post credit scenes)
I just finished it as well and the story mode was pretty lame to me. After a pretty good story from MK9. This felt UNDERWHELMING. Oh well...
