A great game, and the DLC is just a nice bonus. Nothing groundbreaking just extra characters and the like. It brings back such nostalgia that it's a must buy for any fan.
Also considering a genre, a controller is DEFINITELY recommended, I have yet to see a fighting game that is better with mouse and keyboard.

Nearly 10 years after the original Mortal Kombat came out, this 2011 (2013 on the PC) release took a turn back towards its roots by ditching 3D combat, resulting in a 2.5D fighting game. The smooth and responsive controls (controller highly recommended) make playing the game an almost 100% frustration free experience. Mortal Kombat (2011) features a story mode that explores its timeline (an alternate version of that of the first three games in the franchise) and introduces players to some of the characters. Despite being a very fun to play game, Mortal Kombat does come with a handful of flaws, such as the gore and fatalities seeming rather awkward and childish to the now adult fans of the series and the fact that characters aren't prefectly balanced, resulting in some of them being poor choices for more serious gaming; the greatest flaw the game has however is the blatant sexism that is present both in the storyline and the general appearance of the female combatants.

I bought this game because of its ease of gameplay, its tight controls, its great visuals and visceral presentation. Its mad fun to play and utterly satisfying.
This game actually has a story! And a great one at that. I never thought a fighting game could every present and fulfill a good story but this game proved me sooo wrong. The video for the cutscenes arent that great but overall the story is awesome.
The game sports very tight and responsive controls and when you get the combos down you are presented with one satisfying fighting game. The gameplay is just awesome and very easy to learn. You dont have to be hardcore or technical and when you have an opponent with equal skill...the matches are a riot of fun. I love it and it has become a great party game for my siblings and I.
The low quality video is a pain but the game itself is awesome. They didnt hold back on the blood and gore and it makes the game so satisfying to play. I love seeing my attacks actually do damage to my opponent and you actually feel like theres force behind your moves. The character models are great and so are the different stages and special effects. I love it.
2011's Mortal Kombat now on PC!InsaneHien | Dec. 25, 2013 | See all InsaneHien's reviews »
The 2011 reboot of Mortal Kombat was one of my favorite fighting games of the generation, alongside Super Street Fighter IV, Tekken 6, BlazBlue, and KOF XIII. Although I didn't purchase the game at first when it originally came out on consoles the same year, I did get the game eventually last year on PS3 when the Komplete Edition was released. I'm glad they went back to the 2D fighting style, but with 3D graphics which is awesome. I had difficulty playing this game when I first got it since I had not played a MK game since MK vs. DC Universe, but it took a while to get back into the series. Although I sucked at this game, and still do, it was fun game to enjoy.
Fast forward to 2013 and the Komplete Edition of MK9 returns for the PC. The game has everything from the original release of the complete edition including every piece of DLC for the game, only now ported to the PC. Side-by-side, it looks a lot better than when I played on PS3 due to anti-aliasing, higher resolutions, increased texture & shadow quality. Thumbs up to High Voltage for doing this.
In terms of online play, Mortal Kombat 9 was decent albeit with some noticeable lag although not a lot to make me forfeit in my matches. I had good connection in all of my matches, so I would assume the netcode for the PC version hasn't improved much. Either way, it might just be a hit-or-miss when playing online. Other than that, I just wish more people were playing this on PC.
To those who are fans of the series or fighting games in general, and/or have not picked up this game yet or for some reason wanted to play the game again on PC, go ahead and buy the game!

Before this game, MK was known for being the over-the-top fighting game for pure entertainment. Many of the competitive fighting tournaments did not include Mortal Kombat...until now. This game is the perfect kombination (see what I did there? Ok I'll stop...) of entertainment and competitive play. This game has crazy gore and fatalities for fans that like that kind of stuff, but has a very deep competitive aspect to it. The story mode is less of a story and more of a "cutscene then fight", unlike Deception or Armageddon. For a game that came out in the early '90s, Mortal Kombat is still fresh thanks to this game. Congratulations, Netherrealm Studios.
