Mortal Kombat X is about to land on us on April 14, 2015.  If you are like me, the possibilities is that you didn’t play fighting games that much and you prefer playing FPS instead. 

I have to admit that I had enough of playing first-person shooters, and believe me when I’m telling you that I played a LOT of shooters this year. After some time you just feel that they are all the same (more or less). With Battlefield it doesn’t matter if you need to rescue and hostage, capture a flag or disarm a bomb, it’s just feels the same.

I can say that to many games like RPG, which I also felt that every game is not much different in its core than the others. I am not saying not to play those games of course, just saying that if you feel the same, you might want to try something else for a change, jump into a different genre – so how about a fighting game!

Mortal Kombat 9 (also known as Mortal Kombat 2011 or just Mortal Kombat) was first released on April 2011 for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, yep.. four years ago.  Mortal Kombat, arguably,  is the best fighting game available for any platform hands down, better than Virtua Fighter, Street Fighter and Tekken.  Street Fighter IV was the one with the highest Metascore of 94 in PS3 category on metacritic. This game was released in 2009 for Xbox 360, PC and iPhone/iPad later on. Street Fighter V is supposed to be released on March 31, 2016.

There any other good fighting games out there which are planned to be released anytime soon. Mortal Kombat X is the most popular fighting game franchise of all time and if you want to try something different, this is the game to get.

I’ve spent quite a lot of time watching MKX videos and I was blown away by the quality of this game. It’s many times better than Mortal Kombat 9 both in terms of visuals and game features.  I think that Neverrealm Studios did they best they can under the time given to them to develop the game. It just looks bloody brilliant. The special moves, Brutalities, Fatalities, X-ray moves,  beautiful dynamic arenas, living towers, new characters, character variations, fractions and gorgeous graphics, everything just looks fresh and exciting. This is the perfect time to try out a different game if you are stuck too much on FPS or other type of games.

Fighting games are very competitive by nature. They encourage you to practice a lot and gain skill, which you’ll need in order to prevail in battle. On paper it looks like a plain punching game, but once you are actually playing it, you’ll find that it has lots of depth and it’s very addicting. I didn’t play a lot of fighting games, but when I did, I find them to be very engaging and entertaining.

You can play it locally with friends or online against other experienced players and test your learned skills and put them into use.

I also was looking towards The Witcher 3, Final Fantasy, Project Cars, etc. But I’ve decided that if I had to choose one game, I would go with Mortal Kombat. One of the reasons for that is that I want to play again that has high replayability. This is very important to me. I don’t want (As for right now), buy a game which I finish in a few days and need to buy another one to replace it. I want a game that I can play over and over again. This is one reason I love playing multiplayer shooters so much and why I spent so many hours playing Battlefield 3.

So to sum things up, I highly recommend giving Mortal Kombat X a chance, or at least wait for early reviews before making a decision.  I think it will be well worth it!
