The Finally part to my review of Mortal Kombat X took a bit longer because of the nature of the beast! Anything ONLINE normally takes me a bit longer to write about because so much really goes into it. Plus I wanted to add the little details about the game I didn’t get to earlier. So let’s just start!

Booting up the game you are sent to make the decision on which FACTION you choose. Your Faction is based on the concept that your joining a group ONLINE to build up points and Earn currency and bragging RIGHTS. The game has 5 Factions to choose from Lin Kuei, Black Dragon, White Lotus, Special Forces, and Brotherhood of Shadow.MKXFACTIONS

So over all 2 Good, 2 bad, and 1 sort of neutral? The grouping really doesn’t change much to the actual game short of the Online points you can POSSIBLY build up. The thing to be noted is that everything you do in the game goes towards that ONLINE group. So for example if you join the “White Lotus (like me)” Every Fatality, Brutality, Online Faction Kill, win, lose and even the single player mode you do builds towards advancing that group. At the end of the week the decision is made as to which SINGLE group wins and based on that you build up points to advance.

Now during the course of the week each group will be given a chance to fight back at A INVASION. Each Invasion is a chance for the groups to pool to do three things. Fight a INVASION BOSS, INVASION TOWER, and a INVASION ASSASSIN. The boss works in that it’s a group effort. YOU CAN NO NOT KILL THE BOSS ON YOUR OWN. It’s life bar is based on the pooling of groups effort. Invasion tower pretty much is exactly what it sounds like. You fight the invasions enemies in a tower constructed to that INVASION. The Invasion Assassin can pop up at any time during a single player match on any of the towers. It’s sort of tricky to get it..but completely all three can be done in a 24 hour period.

Now let me take a step back and explain that before each battle “no matter the mode” you will choose a character from 1 of 23 characters “Not Counting DLC”.

Each Character after choosing him/her has 3 variations to that 1. Each Variation has it’s own fighting style to it. Basic moves, Special Moves, and combos are all changed based on how you choose it. This also makes picking a character online sort of open to different concepts unlike previous games. If you knew you could fight well against one character that character now has the open option to change based on the 3 variations.

Honestly it’s built well into the social aspect of the game. It keeps each week open to something and adds to re playability. It’s fun and has a ton of content that even after 3 weeks I have yet to find all of. Not to count that the game is currently adding new stuff each week. It’s worth every penny spent and is fun!
