The Nintendo Switch version of Mortal Kombat 1, the latest fighting video game developed by NetherRealm Studios, has received harsh criticism from users due to several performance issues. Players have pointed out the presence of significant bugs that affect the gaming experience, as well as technical aspects that are considered poor, even taking into account the limitations of the hybrid console.
User ElAnalistaDeBits has conducted a comparison that showcases the technical differences between Mortal Kombat 1 and Mortal Kombat 11 on the same console. The video shows comparisons in character models, textured environments, fatalities animations, loading screens, and frame rate stability.
Ed Boon, co-creator of the franchise, has promised that a patch update is being worked on to address the issues in the Switch version. However, it is worth noting that Mortal Kombat 1 has fallen into the same past mistakes and has not managed to evolve in certain aspects, such as the lack of options in its online modes, an aggressive monetization system, and an Invasion Mode that has not been well-received.
Despite this, Mortal Kombat 1 offers enjoyable and well-designed fights, with a wide variety of charismatic characters. Fans of the franchise can refer to a comprehensive guide with the best tips and tricks to fully enjoy the game.
