Coming Soon Magazine
Following the huge success of Mortal Kombat II in both the arcades and on consoles, Acclaim finally decided to release a PC version that leaves nothing to envy the consoles.
Mortal Kombat II est une référence en termes de jeux de combat. Le hit a tout pour plaire : des beaux graphismes (même si de nos jours ça passe plutôt moyennement), une bande-son correcte, un gameplay simple et intuitif et surtout une ambiance travaillée. Mortal Kombat II, c'est avant tout des heures de fun à tabasser joyeusement ses amis.

Si vous affectionnez les beat'em up, MK2 sur PC ne vous décevra pas, car il est le meilleur représentant de ce style de jeu sur PC. Une référence.

Trotz aller Qualitäten und der motivierenden Geheimszenarios mußten wir der PC-Version die Hit-Trophäe also verweigern; auch weil man die Action mit ein paar zusätzlichen Mankos erkaufen muß: Komplexere Bewegungsabläufe führen selbst mit 8 MB in den Speicherbänken zu Nachladezeiten nebst heftigem Ruckeln, und wer kein Gravis-Gamepad besitzt wird mit eingeschränktem Handling kämpfen müssen - alle übrigen Joysticks oder gar die Tastatur führen nämlich zu Frust und Fingerkrämpfen. Aber wer mit diesen Einschränkungen sowie mit wahren Blutstürzen leben kann, der darf bei Mortal Kombat II die Fights seines Lebens austragen!

When you get right down to it, MORTAL KOMBAT II is a rough and tough, macho action gamers' game. But more importantly, it's a whole lot of fun, particularly when you're fighting a friend. While the blood and guts might disturb some people, those people are hereby warned to stay a way. For those that remain, the arena is taking all-corners, and I've got a head-butt with all of your names on it.
