Review: Mortal Kombat 2
Screenshots: 1 - 2 - 3 - 4 - 5 -
Reviewer: Dark-Scorpion
Date: 27/07/2001

The second Mortal Kombat game, Mortal Kombat 2, has been released on PC, Nintendo Game Boy, Super Nintendo, Sega Game Gear and Sega Genesis. The characters in the game (a total of 16, 12 playable, 2 not-playable and 2 secret on pc) are again made pretty well. In this second Mortal Kombat game, there are not only more characters to choose from, but their storylines are also much more detailed, and are of much more quality. I can say the same for the overall storyline. The playability of the characters is much better then in the first game. The speed of the game is faster, and I think this speed is perfect. The player of the game has now much more freedom in the game, but I think it could still be better. The moves of the characters, have been expanded with much more special moves and finishing moves (but I think friendship and babalities are not so great, it can ruin the MK-atmosphere).

The four attack possibilities (High punch, Low punch, High kick and Low kick) are still the same as in the first game and are together with the better gamespeed great for the strategy in the game. As for the difficulties in the game, they are balanced out worse then in the first game. I you want to set the difficulty harder because you win too easy from the normal characters, then Kintaro (before Shao Kahn) becomes often too difficult. And also it's easy to find "cheating" ways in the game to easily defeat all normal characters.

The graphics of the game are again great and are good for the MK-atmosphere in the game. Not only the characters, which still are great (and different from each other), but also the backgrounds have been greatly advanced. The backgrounds may not be 3D, but they still look enough 3D to make them great. It's also very clear that the gore-level of the game has been increased, the fatalities are not only of more originality, but also of more blood. The sound in the game, just like in the first game, is great. The music has only became better, because of the game supporting better sound-carts then the first game. And the same can be told about the other sounds in the game, which are not only better, but also there are much more. Overall, it can be said that the game is a fantastic successor from the first game. Many still find Mortal Kombat 2 the best Mortal Kombat game ever released.
