Mortal Kombat X's dumbly enjoyable story puts other fighting games to shame

Eurogamer: "Mortal Kombat X's mindless plot buckles under the weight of its own silliness, but manages to keep it together and entertain to the bitter end. I'm not sure how many characters we're introduced to throughout the adventure, but it's a number high enough to trouble Game of Thrones. And the introductions come thick and fast as we zip from realm to realm, through this portal and that, and skip from the end of 2011's Mortal Kombat to 25 years later, via a variety of flashbacks that flesh out the back stories of the new characters".

The story is perhaps the darkest since Deception (Armageddon was so-so), the ending in MK2011 was jaw dropping.

Cant help but appreciate a fighter that wants to do more then be played at tournaments. I said before, I would love to see other fighters introduced some story to their game.

Okay did I hurt someone's feelings with my comment?

I don't know why you get two disagrees for a harmless, down to earth opinion.

saukelover122848d ago

i agree and it is good to have some background infomation on the charaters

Mortal Kombat X has a better story then Destiny, and that's something to brag about.

brich2332849d ago

every game has a better story than Destiny. Even Mario Kart!!

Superman 64 has a better story than Destiny. Even Twilight!!

Not hating on your opinion but i feel like thats nothing to brag about. both destinys story and gameplay were some of the most bland and uneventful ive played in recent years. i honestly feel like itll go down in history as a huge bust. seems like people only choose to keep it alive because its the new "career game".
ON TOPIC:
Mortal kombat as a franchise has always had a very rich, well told story. yes people are constantly dying and coming back to life, but boy is it cool when you finally see your main in the next iteration even though he was impaled on a bed of ice and fire spikes the last time you saw him.
Long live MK!

Did he imply the first mortal kombat movie was bad? That was awesome back in the day

Paytaa2849d ago

Agreed. Used to rent the first MK movie from blockbuster a ton when I was a kid. Annihilation was garbage though.

Tankbusta402849d ago

Yeah it was garbage... I remember seeing the first trailer for mortal kombat when my parents rented dumb and dumber from blockbuster... I think I watched that trailer more times than dumb and dumbers running time

q8kik2849d ago

Meh, the story was too Michael Bay-ish for me.

The Mortal Kombat games have been coming up with awesome story modes for awhile now. I really like how you get to play as many of the characters throughout it. It gives you a chance to get a feel for them. I've only been playing since 12am so far but I am loving the story mode.
