It looks like on April 14 the world of fighting games is going to change forever. Sure, there are lots of cool fighting out there and depending on gamerss interests, they are willing to name their number 1. But, no matter what they say, Mortal Kombat titles have been THE number one for years and, I think, will continue being like this for decades more. Correct me if I’m wrong but I think that Mortal Kombat was one of the first to offer a truly memorable gaming experience and after so many years on the market it still does a brilliant job.
The new Mortal Kombat X is on it’s way to the digital markets and it’s time to talk stuff about the new fighting experience the X is going to offer. From what we can tell for sure – this is going to be very massy and very brutal. Believe it or not, the hyper realistic bone crashing might have a bad influence even though this is exactly what gamers have been asking for. This is called the paradox of gaming interests.
Mortal Kombat X: The New Trailer
A couple of months ago we showed you the first Mortal Kombat X trailer where the one and only Subzero was fighting with the one and only Scorpion. I guess, these are THE guys who are loved and respected all over the world. Some say that only those who do not appreciate the honesty of a decent fight pick either of those fighters as their characters but I would say that through the years and new Mortal Kombat games all of the Mortal Kombat participants have been equalized.
In the trailer we’ve seen an epic renewal and the new vision of fighting powers from Mortal Kombat X creators. While it is hard to judge about the moves (taking into consideration everything happens really fast), it is possible to say that the new move capturing technology have been used during the game creation. Flying fists and kicks do look different but very smooth and rapid. It creates the feeling of depth and power.
Mortal Kombat X: The Brutality
However, there is one more thing that is worth mentioning and this one thing is called “the brutality.” I bet you remember the way things were in Mortal Kombat Komplete Edition. SlowBreaking bones, crashing skulls and doing lots of other crazy things in slow-motion seemed to be very and very brutal at first. Even though some players didn’t like to watch the fatality happen, at a certain point everybody forgot about the unnecessary brutality and handled it pretty well. To make that change again, Mortal Kombat X added some extra to their new title.
Saying that Mortal Kombat X is brutal is saying nothing. It’s extremely brutal in every possible sense of this word. Between the usual punches and kicks you kind of receive a decent portion of brutality in every special move, not to mention the fatality. Blood, bones, internal organs flying here and there seem to be a goodnight fairytale when you can actually see your character slicing enemy’s head and brains slowly falling down.
If you learn in a medical school, you should definitely find Mortal Kombat X useful. It can help you during your medical exam because there is no better way than to memorize the position of every bone, muscle, organ and the way they behave after slicing them into several pieces.
When playing Mortal Kombat X you actually start feeling sorry for those characters being dominated over. I haven’t played the game yet but I almost had to close my eyes in order to survive some of the moments shown in the trailer. Trust me – I am more than OK with violence and playing tons of video games including Manhunt kind of prove that. But I would say that when you have an opportunity to enjoy violence, you should do it the right away.
Mortal Kombat X: Accept the Violence
When we talk about Mortal Kombat X, it does not work this way. You only have one choice – accept the brutality and that’s all. Its hyper realistic look brings the feeling of cheapness, if I may. I can bet that this very moment you kind of hate me and your fingers are getting prepared to write a judgmental comment in the section below. But, I would not hurry with the conclusions.
Maybe, I got fooled with the general impression. Because, according to the new trailer, Mortal Kombat X is nothing else but broken fighters. And by broken, I literary mean – Broken. I gave this thought a couple of weeks to flow in my head and approached it from different angles. Sure, nowadays it is hard to surprise somebody with a fighting game. After all, what else can become better? Every Mortal Kombat character is already filled with all the possible moves and techniques and there is not enough buttons to add more of them. So, along with the graphics and interactive backgrounds, the only thing left is the brutality. And while I am more than satisfied with the one I saw in Mortal Kombat Kollection, I think there is too much of it in Mortal Kombat X.
Of course, there are people that are going to like it and others, like me, will find it brutal but still will give it a chance just in case they change their mind. But there will be those who will refuse to have anything in common with Mortal Kombat X because from a decent fighter with some brutal elements it turned into a brutal massacre with some fighting elements.
There is a thought that the more realistic games become, the less interested people get. After all, they can enjoy realistic things in their real life and when we talk about virtual possibilities – it has to be something totally different.
I am not closing a door with the “Mortal Kombat X” sign on it because I have to be sure my thoughts and feelings about the game are true by actually playing it. Though, I can’t stop wondering why Mortal Kombat X has to be that cruel and brutal? It’s like watching Saw but in a real action. So, stay tuned with us to read the exclusive after release review of Mortal Kombat X and let’s find out if I change my attitude to the new fighting masterpiece.
