Mortal Kombat is back and looking as bloody as ever for its 11th installment. It packs a lot of the things the series has become famed for in its stories 25 years history photorealism, blows you can practically feel, and a LOT of guts as well as a few new twists.

There s a bit of a use it or lose it approach to the combat (sorry, kombat ). You start with a full offensive gauge for weapons and super attacks as well as a full defensive gauge for dodge-rolls and combo breakers, and they ll recharge after use. Similarly, once you re getting close to death s door you ll unlock a phenomenally powerful fatal blow attack that might turn things around for you. The emphasis, then, is not on hoarding resources but on using them, making for an all-out balls to the wall fighting experience.

The story picks up from the end of 10, which series fans will remember ended with things in a bit of a mess. Most of the characters were kaput and Raiden was ready to wreck the universe over it. Don t worry, though there s a time travelling baddie called Geras in the mix to ensure that we get a full complement of fighters and an even more screwy timeline than we had before. The line-up, if you were wondering, looks something like this:
Cassie Cage
Erron Black
Jacqui Briggs
Johnny Cage
Kotal Khan
Kung Lao
Kronika (Unconfirmed Playable)
Liu Kang
Noob Saibot
Sonya Blade

Yep, it s going to be big, bloody and involve a lot of broken bones!
