Good, not for everyone

Let me get one thing straight first the purpose of the mortal kombat series is to make the goriest fighting games possible, its very fun, but filled with gore, the backgrounds, the fighting, the kills, its all gorey. Heck, some of the "fatalities" (special kills) that can be performed on other characters consist of spines being ripped out and heads being sliced in half. Now I know what your probably thinking, "This game is too gory for my kids", if you stand by that, that is fine, but if your kid has a strong stomach and is mature enough to deal with some unrealistic situations and lots of gore, this game is fine. The female characters are sexualized, but not too much, there isn't full on nudity or sexual content just revealing outfits and detailed bodies. There is some swearing in story mode and match start and finish quotes such as the f and b word, but its nothing your kid wont hear in school. Overall, its a fun game, lots of gore, I recommend your at least 13 but if your like me and have a strong stomach with fake gore, you can probably handle it at 10 or older.

now this game is not for everyone

Everyone is different some of us can play mortal kombat at 10, but others wait until they feel ready to try the game. I started playing mortal kombat when i was 10 and i still love everything about the games. But then again. I watched The Conjuring

Absolutely Amazing!

I played this game when it came out in 2011 and it’s still one of the best games i’ve ever played, i think younger teens/preteens should be able to play this as long as they understand it’s not real and shouldn’t be recreated

It depends on the child

It really just depends on your child. If your child is mature it would be a fun game but also its not ok for like 7 and lower to play if your a parent it just reallly depends but its a great game nice graphics

It's not bad, if you're the right age

So mk9 has much blood and gore(obviously) if you're kid "needs" it then its best to talk to them and show the fatalities and gore that they might see. People in the ratings have mixed opinions about the gore depending on the kid's maturity, but I think we can all agree that the sexualization of women is a little over the top. Also expect to hear words like sh*t and fu*k frequently.

Yall wrong

Bro, this would scare a grown man out of thier own boots. Like, this game is not the bloodyist, probably the seconed. I would reccomen at least 19+. But Mortal Kombat Vs Dc universe and MK11 are better picks if you are getting your child it.

Mortal Kombat only for 12 years old

When I first got this game FROM 2019 sorry took me a really long time to get a Xbox 360 but now I was able to play this game and I would say this game would only be 12 years old only because of gore like for example Sub zero pulls out Someone head off and yes only for 12 years old

Probably Should be for people 12 or up.

There is a lot of violence but it is very unrealistic and this game sould not be given a 18+rating because of it. Sure, the women wear skimpy outfits but not to many bits are shown (Not until the later games anyway) Overall Mortal Kombat is a great game that should not be rated 18+ for totally unrealistic.
