Amazing fighter game matters how strict you are

Mortal Kombat 11 is a great game, fighters go back in time to fight there future selves who are controlled by the main antagonist. The game is full of gory violence. People are ripped apart beheaded get there intestines ripped out. A game ofc not made for kids but my 8 and 11 year old nephews could handle it. Some characters swear sometimes but rarely. The only thing sexual is the revealing outfits on women and one female character licks people faces killing them. The game is fun and addicting, but be aware your kid could ask you for money to spend on it for extra outfits and characters a bit to much micro transactions for a 50 dollar game.

This title has:

Easy to play/use
Too much violence
Too much consumerism

Very Good for 12+

When I got this game for my 12 year old son on his Birthday, I was a little skeptical at first because I had read some articles online about kids who don’t handle this game very well. Also, Parents who are reading this, when I was pregnant I never wanted my son’s to play Warzone and Mortal Kombat. When my son asked me again when he was 11, I said I would check the game out. I was surprised how hard some of the fatalities are to do. This game is a very good game to let your kids play for a substitute for Gun games. If your kids do take this game to the next level, you can just take it away for as long as you would like. :)
