Mortal Kombat X story is good. It's not  high literature but let say it's as good as a hollywood movie.

Characters die, fall from grace, recover their honor and grown. You see lots of old faces and several new ones. More important, the plot advances, there is a clear storyline going with the Mortal Kombat series, solid enough for you to want to know what will happen next.

If I wasn't so bad at fighting games I'd play it.

By the way, I like D'vorah and Ferra/Torr designs. It's a pity Ferra/Torr are such secondary characters because I find her speech super funny with her "SNEAAKY" and "TRICKERY" lines.
