One of the great games recently released in late 2023 is Mortal Kombat 1, also known as MK1. The release coincides with the thirtieth anniversary of the series of fighting video games originally developed by Midway Games in 1992 and the original Mortal Kombat movie released in 1995.

Mortal Kombat 1 is a 2023 fighting game developed by NetherRealm Studios and published by Warner Brothers Games on September 19, 2023. MK1 is the twelfth main installment in the Mortal Kombat series, and serves as its second reboot after 2011’s Mortal Kombat. The game was released on Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 5, Windows, and Xbox Series X/S.

We contacted video game guru Lord StarKillerXSX01 on X (Twitter) subsequent to the games release. Lord StarKillerXSX01 is a video game expert and a long time “gamer” who has played video games on all video game platforms dating back to the earliest fond memories of the Atari 2600 home video console and other classic platforms.

Subsequent to discussion, LordStarkillerXS01 indicated that he planned to play the MK1 video game campaign and to our delight he agreed to conduct a review of the new MK1 video game. We include his MK1 review below for your enjoyment and edification about this fun video game that has swept the gaming world since it’s release with sales of three million copies as of this week!

During San Diego Comic-Con 2023 we had the privilege to attend an MK1 press room featuring creator Ed Boon, story director Dominic Cianciolo, art director Thiago Gomes, Kelly Hu as Li Mei, Yuri Lowenthal as Smoke, and Vincent Rodriguez III as Raiden.

The press room was filled with excitement, packed with more news outlets than could be serviced due to the SAG AFTRA strike that cancelled most Press Rooms during SDCC 2023.

This overcrowding resulted in the limited time allotted and in some cases not being able to interview some Press Room celebrities. Fortunately, we were granted interviews with Ed Boon, Thiago Gomes and Yuri Lowenthal of MK1. We include their SDCC 2023 interviews below for your enjoyment.

I was really looking forward to playing the MK1 Campaign, and it did not disappoint. The MK1 story is very interesting because it is not only a reboot, but also a sequel to MK11 (2019). Without giving away too much, MK1 has Raiden as a farmer, and Fire God Liu Kang is Earthrealm’s protector in the MK1 timeline, but things will change in a surprising way later in the story.

Many MK favorites such as Johnny Cage, Scorpion, Sub-Zero, and Shang Tsung appear in the main story. But there are many others like Kung Lao, Mileena, Smoke, and Sindel.

The MK1 cinematics could be skipped, but for me, they added a much better dimension to the game and were very well presented and acted. The MK1 graphics and sound were very well done.

The character models were realistic looking, along with the facial expressions syncing  up to the voice-actor dialogs.

MK1 has a Super Meter, that once full, will allow the fighter to do a powerful, gruesome, and bloody attack on their opponent. This highlights some great looking MK1 graphics.

I would recommend playing MK1 with a headset to get the most out of the games great cinematics, fighting, and environment sounds. It was very obvious to me that NetherRealm Studios devoted a lot of attention to the details with the MK1 sound capture. Although the controls felt a little slow at first, as the story progressed, they felt more fluid and responsive, especially when doing multiple combos.

With 5 Campaign difficulties ranging from Very Easy, Easy, Medium, Hard, or Very Hard, the Campaign can be enjoyed many different ways. Replayability? Absolutely yes!
