First time actually giving a shot to the MK series and it’s pretty solid.
Good roster, pretty good story and some nice content hidden in the invasion and towers mode. Still way too bad to ever seriously try playing competitively online but I’ve had fun experiencing what the solo modes have to offer.
I’m not the biggest fan of fighting games but even I have to admit this is surprisingly fun and very polished.
This was my most anticipated game of the year and ultimately I was not impressed, especially with the story mode, which was far too cinematic and not enough fighting in between. While I do like what story mode did and the direction the series is going, the execution of it here did not impress me.
Invasion mode is also not very fun, having to click on each space you want to move your character would be made a lot less mundane if you could open up a big overhead map and just click the spot you want them to go. Maybe fast forward it a bit, too. It's kind of slow.
I really miss the rotating towers, I also found the unlockables and how you get the unlockables to be far more enjoyable and rewarding in past games like X and 11. Ultimately, I'm incredible disappointed and with games costing $70, I don't feel like this is a series I'll be biting on again next time unless I see some truly incredible stuff coming from it.
