“Mortal Kombat 2011” Is Here!


Other than Portal 2, the one game we’ve been anxiously anticipating this 2011 has been none other than the new Mortal Kombat game. Mortal Kombat 2011, the ninth fighting installment of the twenty-year old franchise (yes, we feel like old farts, like rucos, because of this factoid) was released yesterday and as is our tradition, we’ve gone ahead and asked our good friends over at Game Front whether we should buy this title or not. Their response? An unequivocal “hell to the mothereffin’ yes!” Check out an excerpt of heir fantastic of the game below:

Where were we? Oh yes, we’re old, just like Mortal Kombat, a nearly drinking-age fighting game series that has spent most of its long life hamstrung by ill-advised sequels and the diminished returns that come from milking a franchise for every last drop of money possible. No wonder then that I spent the last year reacting to news about Mortal Kombat 2011 (AKA Mortal Kombat 9) the way I do about new Paul McCartney albums. (By which I mean, former greatness overshadows lesser, modern accomplishments). I was wrong. As it turns out, NetherRealm Studios has managed to (mostly) resurrect that old school Mortal Kombat magic in a game that is surprisingly accessible, looks incredible, is gloriously bloody and unrelentingly brutal.

Head over to Game Front for the full review. Make sure you also check their YouTube channel for great and helpful videos on Mortal Kombat 2011 and other titles:
