3. Mortal Kombat X
With 2015’s Motal Kombat X, developer NetherRealm Studios offered deeper fighting mechanics. And there’s no doubt that the fighting action onscreen looked better than ever, with superb character models, animations and beautiful arenas in which Mortal Kombat’s characters could duke it out. The addition of a stamina bar make the combat more intense, as breaking combos and performing blocking moves now came at a cost, plus the fact that each character had 3 fighting variations (each with unique moves and abilities) made for more intense and involving matches.
Some new characters like Cassie Cage were not that interesting as they were too similar to existing characters though, while the story mode was a bit on the short side and wasn’t as engaging as that of the series’ previous entry (2011’s Mortal Kombat reboot). Also, the game’s new Fatalities are the bloodiest seen in Mortal Kombat yet, meaning this latest entry in the series is no doubt a fine game which offers the best-looking action of any Mortal Kombat game to date.
