    New, younger Kombatants. Built-in options to play a particular character in completely different ways from someone else using the very same martial artist. More gore, but also more emotional plot points. The option to pay for easier Fatalities. Mortal Kombat is changing.

    This is a next-generation Mortal Kombat in more ways than one. MKX is the first game to appear on Sony and Microsoft’s newest home game machines (along with PC). The tenth Mortal Kombat game also features new characters, some of whom are the sons and daughters of classic Kombatants like Johnny Cage and Jax Briggs. You get the sense that Netherrealm is trying to infuse fresh blood into their franchise—in terms of both characters and design—while simultaneously courting acclaim from the world of hyper-competent pro-competition players.

    Mostly, the ambition pays off.

    If you're on PC I hope you have a controller.

    I played Street Fighter X Tekken on keyboard. Compared to Mortal Kombat X it is much easier.

    I play on a street fighter game pad and have a stock 360 controller for fighting games where you need analog sticks like the new DBZ game. or tomb raider 3rd person view style games. Then keyboard and mouse for FPS obviously so got all bases covered.

    I'm really liking the game on PC. Works great as long as you are using a controller. Very fun and recommended.

    I'm surprised because I've been playing more MK:X than GTA V. I'd highly recommend it to anyone who enjoys fighters!

    I bought my game through this site and figured I'd share it around considering the game is a 1/3 of the price

    First step is to not post irrelevant stuff into wrong articles.
