Mortal Kombat 1 is the best installment in Mortal Kombat history. Game review

Date: July 19, 2024 Time: 23:59:46

In Russia, the Mortal Kombat series is receiving more and more attention. We all played Dendy’s early roles, eagerly watched Paul Anderson’s film and parodied Scorpio, making friends with the legendary “Get Over Here.”

It is not surprising that the new part was highly anticipated: only the publisher Warner Bros. will disappoint our fans. If during the beta version the servers worked perfectly, at launch players from Russia were blocked by IP. As a result, you won’t be able to play a fighting game without a VPN, even if you bought the game in Kazakhstan, Turkey, or another country.

However, enthusiasts have already found a way to succinctly bypass the restrictions by simply changing the DNS.

Mortal Kombat remains the same, but has completely changed

It won’t surprise anyone that the foundation of the series in Mortal Kombat 1 remains the same. Before us again is a huge list of fighters, each of which has its own strengths and weaknesses. The task is to choose a favorite, learn the combinations of it and throw it to everyone.

There are characters for both enthusiasts and beginners. For example, Scorpio is strong and easy to master: his ranged attacks penetrate all types of blocks, his legendary spear suddenly flies out and stuns the enemy, and his combos are simple and deal 300 units of damage even without upgrades. Raiden has more variety in attacks, but his combos require training and at least one boost slot.

However, experienced players will quickly adapt to the attacks of these fighters, but getting used to Shang Tsung is almost impossible. His combos are extremely complicated and his shapeshifting is constantly confusing. The problem is that only hardcore players can competently play as an evil sorcerer.

The video is available on the PlayStation YouTube channel. The video rights belong to WB Games.

All the key mechanics have changed only slightly: the combos have changed slightly, the interactive objects in the arenas have disappeared, the jerk characters have been balanced, but the essence remains the same. The only fundamental difference is the new cameo mechanics.

In Mortal Kombat 1, the heroes enter the arena together with an ally, who sits behind the scenes and runs out strictly on command. As soon as you press a button, Goro will grab the enemy and smash their head, Kano will shoot a laser from his eyes, and Jax will powerfully slam the ground and launch everyone into the air. Each partner has several moves for different situations: for example, Frost attacks with an ice wall for solid damage or freezes the opponent so you can initiate a combo or use Fatal Blow.

It is impossible to overestimate the importance of cameos, because their competent use separates victory from defeat. Remember those combos that have become easier to perform? This is not a problem for defense: if you get caught in an endless series of hits, simply call your partner; he will push the aggressor. This will consume your entire gain bar, but will save your health. Cameo is also useful for extending your combo, running out of corners, and stunning your opponent before using Fatal Blow.

Another feature is that you can change the fighter cameo even in the middle of an online series. Do you see that the enemy is used to the tandem of Raiden and Frost? After the defeat, he changes the lady for another partner and surprises everyone with new techniques.

Cameos make each fight unique. Previously, when I saw Liu Kang, I roughly understood what would happen next. Now the god of fire seems to be a mystery that must be revealed every time; However, in collaboration with Sonya or Scorpio, the hero acts differently. And so with every hero!

The best story in Mortal Kombat history.

The story of Mortal Kombat has always had its problems. Many people like the ninth part, but how absurdly the fights started there, almost from a sideways glance. And MK11 was surprised by the problems of logic: take, for example, Chronicle, which at the right moment the scriptwriter forgot about the power of it.

In MK1, the story is also far from ideal, but it is extremely interesting to follow. There’s mystery, colorful characters, and an epic conflict that begins after an inspiring introduction. As a result, I completed the campaign in one go, although I initially didn’t plan to spend much time on it at once.

By the way, the reboot did good for the series. Liu Kang became the Guardian of Time and created a new reality where the characters changed a lot. Raiden has become an ordinary farmer with no godlike powers, Kung Lao has yet to turn his hat into a deadly weapon, and Shang Tsung is involved in petty frauds. It’s interesting to look at cult heroes from a new angle. Also, it is not necessary to remember what happened in the previous parts.

In the plot, the heroes will have a lot of problems, but they will stop stupidly exterminating them.

There are a lot of interesting modes, but we expected more from Invasion.

MK1 is full of interesting things to do. Go through the story, fight online, sign up for a tournament, go through the “Towers”, complete daily tasks, customize your fighter – all this is very addictive.

Another important activity is Invasion mode, which promises to be updated every six weeks. In the first season, the heroes explore the search for Scorpio, which has gone off the rails. The mode has its own currency, leveling up, equipment, and most importantly, fighting modifiers. Don’t be surprised if a demon rushes into the arena and bathes everyone in fire, projectiles fly from portals, and opponents gain temporary invulnerability.

If modifiers bother you, remove them with a special consumable.

The problem is that Invasion is only entertaining at first. It would seem that the hero is searching for chests on the map, fighting in unusual conditions, receiving rewards for the main game, but there is still not enough variety.

For example, in the starting village, almost all battles take place in an arena and you measure your strength against repeated opponents. “Aspiring Monk” or “Battle Hatter” can take on you; Unfortunately, Kung Lao always hides behind pretentious names. This isn’t a problem for multiplayer, where real players surprise you with unusual techniques, but in Invasion you’re fighting stupid AI. So, the more time you spend in the mode, the more you’ll miss MK11’s Krypt.

Invasion has additional activities like Towers and tests of strength.

However, this is just the beginning, because “Invasions” will become the main support mode of Mortal Kombat 1; will be associated with constant innovations and expansions of the fighting game, in addition to the periodic addition of new fighters and cameos. It is evident that the mode will be developed and improved further.

There have never been such beautiful fighting games before.

I’m ready to play any Mortal Kombat 1 mode forever, even Invasion. The secret is in a fantastic image with cool effects, bloody deaths, detailed backgrounds and perfect optimization.

You’ll fight in Johnny Cage’s mansion, a living forest, a mysterious temple, an Outworld party town… and that’s just the beginning of the list. I want to photograph each stadium, print it and hang it on the wall.

The only negative thing is the faces of the characters, which after changing their style became less realistic. Due to the bright colors, the legends look more like wax figures than people. Luckily, improved graphics and a million costume details make up for the shortcomings.

Mortal Kombat 1: is it worth playing?

If you love fighting games or are planning to delve into the genre, you won’t find a better game. Thanks to simple characters and cameos of fighters, even a beginner can win. Masters will choose a hardcore hero and enjoy the gameplay, visuals, and variety of modes. There are fun activities for everyone.


Gorgeous graphics; a huge list of fighters for all tastes; many interesting modes; a pleasant plot with intrigue and epic; Cameo fighters make the battles unique.

I dont like him

“Invasion” mode turned out to be a poor substitute for Crypto; you can’t play in Russia without a working VPN or DNS.
