Summary

Acclaims Best Game?

The Good

MK2 is a better game than the original. Thankfully. This time around there is more to the game than just the blood. More characters & more moves are a welcome addition. This is in my opinion the best MK game that has been made. A decent arcade conversion.

The in game fighting is now a lot smoother and quicker. The characters are a lot more technically defined, in that each character has strengths & weaknesses. This was less apparent in the first game as most characters were just about equal.

This game was much better with a few mates to play against and was far more enjoyable with the infinite finishing time cheat in order to get those finishers in.

The Bad

Its more of the same 2D fare, which is no match for Street Fighter 2. The game will wear thin after about a month or so.

The Bottom Line

A better game than its first incarnation. Worth playing.
