Mortal Kombat 11: Terminator T-800 Review

The roster in Mortal Kombat 11 expands as the Terminator enters the timeline. This is with the mighty T-800 that’s modeled after the actor Arnold Schwarzenegger, it also includes the endoskeleton which is really awesome to see come out. It’s a sleek, cold and metal casing that looks like skeleton of death.

Sadly, the actual actor previously mentioned does not lend his voice in this situation. It does look authentic, just doesn’t quite sound the same. This is also a slower character to take on, but he can pack a rather nasty punch once some hits are landed on any poor opponents that get in the way.

There’s a fun use of the machine’s signature weapons, and some neat tools. The entry cinematics are also a lot of fun, as are some of the crazy finishers. Send off some enemies to the end days of the robot uprising, or just blast them away.

See the skin get peeled off, and unleash the might of this rather insane looking mechanical monster. I really liked the visual aesthetics, and the combination of weapons with combos that could be pulled off during the matches. This feels authentic to the various films, and it gives you a good look at this character against the best in the Netherrealm.

The Conclusion

Mortal Kombat 11's latest addition brings a strong punch, and shot as the Terminator joins the roster. It’s good in capturing this character, wish Arnold had lent his voice for this appearance however. It’s a slow, menacing advance when in battle, with the hits being a series of punishing statements against any that enter the ring.

There are some good blasts, heavy moves and many fun moments to witness along the way. I quite enjoyed taking on this character, a fun and different addition to the roster. Might be a slow character in the roster for some, a nice mix up for me.
