It took me a long time to adjust and tune into the new fighting style and pace of it, but when I finally did I can easily say that it's the favourite part of the whole series for me.
Every encounter is way more tactical, characters are much more customizable with an emphasis on their skills and strong sides.
Story is nothing outstanding but it does the job better than the X one. Krypt is nicely done, it added a lot new mechanics (finally free-run format!)
Overall, I really recommend this one, if you like mortal kombat style of fighting than you will be home.
- Fighting engine
- Story, even though it's better than ever
