You may not have realised thanks to a brief period of early access, but today marks the full release of Mortal Kombat 1. The latest instalment in NetherRealm's eternally popular fighting game series, it's got typically impressive visuals, punchy gameplay, and a twisted interest in watching entrails leave the human body in especially gruesome fashion. It's Mortal Kombat, alright!
We gave it a 'good' 7/10 in our Mortal Kombat 1 PS5 review, claiming that the core game's great fun, but the surrounding package is a bit hit and miss. "Mortal Kombat 1 is the best and most refreshing entry in the series since Mortal Kombat (2011), but it falls directly into the same traps as those prior entries," we concluded.
