Mortal Kombat 11: Brutal Game Full of Blood & Organs

It’s incomplete to discuss fighting games without Mortal Kombat. This year, Warner Bros. Together with NeatherRealm Studio released Mortal Kombat 11. Just like its predecessors, this fighting game is full of real violence. How not, you can find a lot of broken bones, splattered meat, and blood spurting everywhere when playing it.

This fighting game franchise with explicit violence is perfected so that it can give an ambience that matches its trademark. This game is overhauled to be more brutal and charming. Not only strengthening the graphics when fighting, this game also adds a denser story so that the game is more alive. The rhythm of the game feels slower but still maintains the violence which is the main point.

Mortal Kombat 11 Story Plot

We thank NeatherRealm Studio because since working on the Mortal Kombat game, this game feels more interesting. The story of the game comes alive and plays an important role in forming new pleasures when playing fighting games. Mortal Kombat 11 is a continuation of Mortal Kombat X. The story of this game starts from Shinok who in the previous game was defeated by Cassie Cage. Knowing Shinok’s defeat, his mother (Kronika) intends to avenge her son while creating a new world.

To achieve this desire, Kronika requires 2 important items, namely a crown and hour glass. And to get it, he recruited Liu Kang and Kitana who were manipulated by the darkness. How does Kronika get it? He collides with the time dimension so he can get help from fighters from the past.

Because playing with time, ended up messing up the timeline. This makes the great fighters of the past come to the future. Even fighters who died in previous games like Shao Khan are also present in this game. Not only fighters who sided with Kronika, but there were also good fighters in the past who were still not manipulated. Some young fighters from the past have to face their version of the future. For example, in this game you will find a young version of Scorpion and an old version of Scorpion.

Characters and Customization

Characters and customization features are one of the interesting points in this game. You can freely customize each existing character. Not only can you change the appearance, you can also change the status and fighting style. The latest engine used clearly makes Mortal Kombat 11 better than Mortal Kombat X. Each character is made more realistic. The graphic effect on the blood, flesh, and bones on the scattered body is enough to make the stomach queasy.

Unfortunately additional items for each character are quite difficult to obtain. For those of you who are impatient, you might be tempted to buy it through microtransactions. In addition to using money, you can get special items through Towers of Time. The higher the tower, the harder it is for you to beat it. Unfortunately the items given when winning each Tower floor are not worth it. When transacting with real money you can’t choose which item you like because this game uses a gacha system.

Mortal Kombat 11 Gameplay

Brutality with spilled blood and organs everywhere is the hallmark of the Mortal Kombat game. Likewise in this 11th series, NetherRealm Studios still maintains this aspect. Improvements in the visual side make the stomach feel more queasy when playing it. For those of you who are not used to playing games with intense violence themes, it is recommended not to play this game. Then in terms of control, you also still have to press a few buttons to issue combo moves. Fortunately the tempo of the game is a little slow so you can think longer to issue moves.

The special move system is added with additional attack effects and extra damage. In addition, various elements on the stage can be used to increase the effect of violence in this game. Just like the previous game, you can throw weapons, stab, to crush followed by animation of bones and organs sticking out of the body. When the health bar is below 25% you can launch an attack with great damage. This Fatal Blow is followed by complete animation with X Ray and Slow Motion which depicts what organs and bones are damaged when hit.

Kudos to NetherRealm Studios for making Mortal Kombat 11 a fighting game with the most intense violence. To the point that we were made to feel nauseous when we saw the gameplay reviews, let alone the collection of fatal blows from each character. Improvements to the visuals make the blood splatter look more realistic. The story that is delivered is also quite interesting, and makes this game feel more fun to play.

Although it can be the most brutal game with rain spilled organs, this game still has shortcomings. What is most felt is the transaction system that seems money oriented. Tower mode is quite difficult to play and the rewards given are sometimes not comparable. For those of you who are impatient, you might be tempted to pay with real money when playing Mortal Kombat 11.
