Summary

Mortal 32X

The Good

Mortal Kombat II (1994) for the Sega 32X features improved, compared to the Sega Genesis version, animation and graphics along with tighter controls. It remains the best cartridge version of the ultra violent coin-op game.

The Bad

The music and sound effects do not appear to have been improved much from the Sega Genesis version. It is not quite a perfect arcade translation, even through it probably could have been.

The Bottom Line

Mortal Kombat II (1994) has better graphics then the Super Nintendo version as well as better (with the six button controllers) controls then the Sega Genesis version. Had the game not been rushed, it might have been a perfect translation of the coin-op game.
