The '8' is about right... in light of key factors like atrocious online functionailty, the lies about mode completion prizes (Tower), the filler fraught offline content, the cookie cutter roster, the many MIA or locked out stalwart characters, the simplified gameplay (X-rays), were elided.

So in actuality, MK2011 is closer to a 6.5~7/10 game.

For casuals this might indeed bump up to an 8... but whatever. For hardcore fighting game enthusiast and long-time MK fans however, who were expecting the game to finally be taken seriously as a bone fide fighter along the lines of the Capcom and SNK offerings of the gaming world (not just a gore parade), and with the game's online play shot and its gameplay little more than passable, the game may even drop to a 5.5~6/10, once the new game sheen wears off.

Pros:
*Story mode
*Background visuals
*Decent gameplay (for and MK title)

Cons:
*Online useless
*Online pass (!)
*Same-y roster
*Missing fan favorites (bosses)
*Format biased guest character
*Content largely filler
*TC mode pointless
*Gameplay simplistic / casual orientated
*Very buggy / glitchy out-of-the-box
*Too many promises - not enough delivery
