Mortal Kombat 1: Omni-Man DLC Gets Loud Criticism, But What’s Really Wrong With It?!

Some Mortal Kombat 1 fans have taken to social media to express their displeasure at the lack of Omni-Man content in NetherRealm’s latest game.



A vocal segment of NetherRealm fans recently took to social media to voice their displeasure with how much Omni-Man content the developer put into Mortal Kombat 1 . Their complaints add to the list of criticisms of MK1 that players have levelled against the game since its market debut in mid-September.

Omni-Man is the first Mortal Kombat 1 DLC character that NetherRealm has added to its latest fighting title as part of the $39.99 Kombat Pack.

The expansion also includes Ermac, Homelander, Peacemaker, Takahashi Takeda, and Quan Chi. Also, five additional Kameo Fighters are added to the game.


Omni-Man has no alternate skins and has 15 fewer Mastery Tiers than other Mortal Kombat 1 fighters


That said, some fans were not impressed with Omni-Man’s arrival in the game. Not least because, in their opinion, the content related to the character is usually incomplete. The front page of gaming’s largest subreddit recently featured several highly upvoted posts criticizing Omni-Man’s lack of alternative skins. Compared to the characters in the base game, he has one less Brutality. Also, it has no place in the game’s seasonal content schedule.

Many players have also complained that Omni-Man only has 20 Mastery Tiers, making him more in line with support Kameo Fighters than playable fighters who boast 15 and 35 skill tiers, respectively.

Given this state of affairs, some game fans have expressed concern about how NetherRealm will handle the ten DLC characters they have yet to release. Others took a more optimistic view. They argue that there is still a chance that the developer will bring out more costumes and other types of content for Omni-Man in the future. Game director Ed Boon has been hinting at new Mortal Kombat 1 features on social media as usual.

But so far, there have been no signs that NetherRealm has held back on Omni-Man content, and plans to release more of it later.

The Kombat Pack’s polarizing reception shouldn’t take away from the fact that the base game is widely praised. According to many, it is nothing less than a wonderful experience. Many fans and critics praised it. Among other things, because of the vast selection of characters, elaborate combos and addictive gameplay. The glowing critical reception really goes to the Switch version of the game. Gamers complained about the blurry visuals, terrible performance, and extremely long load times.
