Mortal Kombat 11 – Very Different From That 90s Pub Game

by Nathan Dutil

Marcelo Jabulas | GameCoin Newsroom – I don’t know how much money I spent at the “Boyzão” bar, on the corner of Alves Martins and Campos Sales, with only chips to watch Sub-Zero rip his opponents’ spines out . But the thing is, Mortal Kombat 11 has just hit the market bringing amazing graphics, fantastic effects, and lots of content. But those who offer to play really want to get dirty in the blood and guts that gave the series the conditions to eclipse the brilliance of Street Fighter 2, in 1992.

And there’s no shortage of violence in the new game. The same way classic characters stay steadfast and strong, such as Scorpion, Sub-Zero, Johnny Cage, Sonya, Baraka, Rayden, and Kano, to name a few. of the 23 fighters that come with the base version of the game.

Suffice to say, the harpoon, lightning, leg lock (not to mention the popular name) have been through the years, along with the delightfully sadistic finishes. The difference is that everything is in high definition. So it looks like Mortal Kombat 11 is more of a re-release, re-release, re-release, reminiscent of the original game. In a way yes, but there are novelties.

What changes

Mortal 11 is a close cousin of Injustice 2. Both games were produced by NetherRealm Studios and use the Unreal Engine graphics engine. Thus, they have very similar game mechanics and the possibility of unlocking new clothes and applying accessories to the characters.

Like modern fighting games, there is a story mode. However, Mortal 11 offers at least three narratives. The structure is split between animation and combat. etc If we go back in time, the first MK was also like that, but since it was an arcade game, the drama was left after the player finished the game.

On the arm

Mortal Kombat has always been a series with fast-paced combat. This edition is no different, even more so when playing on hard mode (against the machine). But especially against other players. If you get it wrong, the fight is over in seconds.

For those used to Injustice 2 or MK XL, there’s little to be surprised at. But if the friend has decided to remember this old passion, it is good to know that the gameplay is very different, although certain commands, such as ice kicks and the harpoon, have kept the same movements.

Even so, it is necessary to clarify that the game has evolved a lot. These commands drawn like Scorpion’s Harpoon no longer work as they used to, and don’t even try to breathe fire the same way. In the first fight, testing the game, it was humiliating to try to apply the blows of the past. The computer was relentless. In the second fight, it was possible to defeat the machine, on medium difficulty. At 13, everything was easier. Therefore, it is necessary to relearn a lot.

in line

Like any self-respecting fighting game, MK 11 has an online mode. The player has a number of combat options, from casual combat to participating in tournaments. I have to confess that I haven’t shown Olympic skill in fighting games for a long time. On the Super Nintendo, I can still do well, putting the joystick under my shirt. But online, without seeing the opponent’s face, without being able to push or pull the control wire, things get complicated.

I knew it wouldn’t be easy and decided to play a quick game. I was welcomed by player JPKBbavi. With a boxer, he studied my movements and we had a balanced first round. In the second, he showed all his cruelty. It was a humiliating beating, which extended to the third, straight to fatality.

One day JPKBbavi, we will meet again…

cake icing

As you can see, the icing on the cake is Fatalities, those finishing moves that require commands to be executed in a short downtime. In MK 11, there are two options for each fighter, each more grotesque than the other. Anything goes, gutting, splitting the guy in half, kicking under the legs to kick the spine, and a bunch of other exquisite and cruel methods to finish off the enemy.
