Review: Mortal Kombat 1 is another outstanding 2023 fighter

Mortal Kombat 1 is the best Mortal Kombat game to date. It looks stunning, has a brilliant Story mode, its new Invasions mode will keep solo players busy and, above all else, it's an absolute joy to play. Thoroughly essential for die-hards, lapsed fans and newkomers.

  • Fighters and backgrounds look incredible
  • Deeply satisfying combat regardless of skill level
  • One of the best Story modes in the series
  • Invasions single-player mode is nice and lengthy
  • It seems the best cosmetics will cost extra
5 / 5
Version tested
Xbox Series X | S
