Mortal Kombat 11 is a game that keeps giving and will come back again in the ultimate form: Mortal Kombat 11 Ultimate.
Generational releases celebrate the game’s debut on the PS5 and Xbox Series X | S, base games receive free upgrades to support new consoles, and MK11 Ultimate is an all-encompassing GOTY-style release It has been released so far, with the exception of some paid costume packs that will appear as. In addition to the base game, the first Kombat Pack, and the Aftermath story expansion, the main addition to Ultimate is Kombat Pack 2, with Rain, Mileena, and John crazy about Rambo!
Breaking the rule of not repeating DLC will bring Rain back as a DLC character for the second time, but he won’t be disappointed. As the name implies, he has a water-based movement menagerie to help kill his enemies. If you’ve seen a water jet cut things, you’ll know what this involves.
He finds it very fluid to play (intended for puns). Kick your opponent off the screen and display it behind you to continue the combo, or become a giant water ball and roll into an unprotected enemy. One of his finishers also randomly pays homage to Queen’s album, Queen II. It’s great to see Rain’s back story fleshed out a bit more in 2011. Because he was previously forced to be a ninja recolor. Today he is the Prince of Edenia and is a natural title.
Milena is a character that is too good to participate in Mortal Kombat games. Her absence from the main roster was strange, but it’s good to see her here. She is as brutal as ever, taking advantage of deadly rhinos and taking every opportunity to use her lovely set of teeth. They are much better at confronting her opponents.
I really like her move set, but it was a bit frustrating that many of her out-of-the-box combos used only one of her moves, the Ball Roll. With time and experimentation, she feels she has the potential to become a top-notch character to rely on in great mix-up games. But it will take time for people to get along with her.
Her finisher, Spinning Out of Control, is probably my favorite new batch. Milena turns herself into a spinning ring of death, pointing all of Sonic the Hedgehog at her opponent, slicing it in two in the most brutal way possible, and hanging her internal organs to pose for victory.Well, Sonic doesn’t work It Much, but you get the idea.
Finally, there is Rambo as a guest character. Yes, John Bloody Rambo, who Sylvester Stallone himself spoke out! Adding guest characters to a fighting game is actually a very dangerous business. Because it is a 50/50 toss whether they can relax in the engrossed universe. Thankfully, Rambo actually feels okay.
He has a really cool theme move and can feel like a survivor of the jungle. He can set up claymores, spike traps and pull the M60 hidden in the leaves to bring pain to the enemy. The customization option is a bit of a weakness, but again, you just want to take off your shirt and want Rambo, right?
Of course, Mortal Kombat 11 Ultimate also marked the game’s debut on a new generation of consoles. As mentioned earlier, owners of Mortal Kombat 11 on PS4 and Xbox One will also get a free upgrade to the base game. Playing on the PlayStation 5 has a shiny 4K coat that makes each bone snap look a little better. The frame rate looks as snappy as you want, and the load time … man, the load time is just very good. Entering the fight is so fast that you can’t imagine going back to waiting 30 seconds to a minute to get into the match.
Another cool bonus is being able to run Krossplay. This allows players to fight each other online, whether on PlayStation or Xbox, only in the online Kasual lobby. I personally didn’t run into any problems here and was fighting many enemies on different platforms. It’s important that fighters stay online and consistent, and that doesn’t disappoint.
If you jump from one generation to the next, your progress will also be partially carried over and you will receive all the items you have earned in your inventory and the rewards you have earned. So that big wardrobe you’re making? Yeah, you can keep it. However, NetherRealm isn’t built to work between console families, so it can’t hold anything when migrating from the Xbox One to the PS5. You’ll have to complete everything else again, such as story mode, but at least you’ll get a new set of trophies or achievements to earn.
Over time, trading becomes sweeter, which is great for those who are just starting out with MK11. If you already own it, the Kombat Pack 2 offer price is pretty reasonable for the three new characters, so there’s no real loser here. Well, unless you’re fatally injured. But still, as a full package, MK11 Ultimate is the ultimate version of this game and definitely worth your time.
