The story mode is awesome as usual, runs the same format as before. Cut-scenes,fights repeat. Fans will miss classic favorites like Jade, All Cyber Ninjas, and many other non-playble NPCs that were in MK9 (dead or otherwise) and it feels like they've let out so many. Online play has its ups and downs, but unfortunately worrying about a game on last gen is what causes a game to be made w/ lagging online. (Compare to say Killer Instinct's netcode which is wonderful) If you are a hardcore fan, or have free money to spend 60 bucks, I'd still wait till it's down to 40 or 50 cause the kombat pass is 30. Unless that goes on 1/2 off. Kombat tower is now Living towers which is just various modifers other then mini-games, but Test Your Luck and Might are back. No team play is gone, which is sad, but you never know 4 million sales may get them thinking otherwise. All I can say if you are on the fence, I'd tweet Ed boon and Netheralm. the more complains of stuff left out the more they need to approach how to fix it.
