In our review, Windows Central gave Mortal Kombat 11 a perfect score and said that it's "a stellar fighting game and is one of the best ones ever made... The depth and variety it offers are unparalleled, even by the likes of Injustice 2, another NetherRealm creation. There are so many characters to customize and master — with many more on the horizon — which should keep you enthralled for months to come."
