In the decisive third round I succeeded. Johnny Cage blocks at the right moment the attacks of his opponent Reptile, lands a few bone-breaking blows, snaps from the background a burning barrel, which lands with full force on the skull of the lizard monster, and sets to the final combo. With his bare hands, he tears open the back of his adversary’s head, pokes his head, and shouts “Heeeeere’s Johnny” in the best Jack Nicholson manner, while I am grinning about the allusion to Stanley Kubrick’s “Shining.” Outcry of the German youth protection authorities. No, with a publication on 14th April in Germany I do not really count.
In Mortal Kombat X cheats, behind all the violence displayed, there is much more than an optical treat for Gore fans or approaching sociopaths: a really good playable 2D-controller. With an extensive list of jumps, blows, defenses and special attacks, which allows for proper playing into the mechanics and the memorization, partly elusive inputs. Simply hectic to press the buttons is usually acknowledged with a fast game-over. If you are not able to beat the challenging game, you can lower the difficulty level down to “Very Easy” and practice beat combinations and timing in all the rest. But apart from the one-against-one battles against the computer – or even better:
There would be the entertaining campaign, which according to Hans Lo, senior producer at Nether Realm, brings the five to six hours of story. This begins on board a combat helicopter, which is to bring a troop of special units into the operational area. Once again, the conflict between Earthrealm and Outworld, which can only be solved by the use of brutal violence, can be solved. Johnny Cage, Cassie Cage, Takeda, Jacqui Briggs, and Kung Jin are the first offspring of well-known combat fighters. After a few introductory words, it goes right to the point, the opponents Scorpion and Sub-Zero emerge and a furious strike exchange in the cramped cabin burns.
No two-fights are yet required of me, Just a few quick-time events require a push of a button at the right time to drive the action. Fast cuts, over-the-top action sequences, cool sayings: The fast-paced campaign feels like a playable B-Movie. This is not surprising, because the hero in the chapter released is Johnny Cage, the arrogant Hollywood actor. The figure, inspired by the action hero Jan-Claude van Damme and his portrayal of the Frank Dux in the martial arts film “Bloodsport”, exudes the over-arched masculinity of the action films from the 80s Explanatory acts of action are repeatedly interrupted by martial performances and gloriously tense speeches by the arch enemies, which are then to be defeated in two-combat.
I also liked the fight arenas. These are not as in Nether Realms Superhelden klopper Injustice: Gods among us are provided with several levels, but with a lively background and varied interaction possibilities. So I can swing in the “Dead Woods” with lianas over the opponent, or in the “Outworld” simply snatch an innocent spectator and beat the opponent around the ears. Fies, but immensely effective.
Each character now has three different styles, selectable before a battle. For example, my favorite Cassie Cage, the daughter of Johnny Cage and Sonya Blade, has the versions “Spec-Ops”, “Hollywood” and “Brawler.” Depending on the choice, other techniques are available for attack and defense The Faction wars will allow you to join a faction such as “White Lotus” or “Black Dragon”, and you will be able to take advantage of the challenges of your own side Of the series well-known campaign towers, in which you must exist tasks, For example the fight against a given number of opponents or minor examples like the breaking of boards. Online, changing daily, weekly or monthly will be available.
A change of the faction, perhaps because my friends are now somewhere else to be found, is possible at any time, but is punished with a cancellation of the point account. Loyalty should pay off. The principle is reminiscent of Ubisoft’s frantic rolling game The Crew . In addition, there will be an app for iOS and Android devices, which connects the main game and mobile offshoot via the WB-Play service. Thus, experience points and Koins can be collected in an account in both games.
