Fighting with big monsters? It hasn't really been done before so it wins points for originality. The side-scrolling scenes are a nice breather from the battles with the bosses, but it's too easy to get by little enemies, even when blocking. Also, what's the deal with only three characters? This fact severely limits the replayability. The tunes are great and the control is superb, although your thumb gets numb after a while.

If you own King of the Monsters and you sort of like it, but don't love it, you may want to try a different game such as WWF Royal Rumble or Mortal Kombat II. But if you absolutely adored the original game concept -- monsters wrestling while being attacked by outside forces -- you will probably want to pick this one up.
Still, the two-player competitive game is silly fun, if only for a day or two. And again, just like the create features it's patterned after, King of the Monsters 2 is somewhat pointless, no great contribution to the medium, and kinda crummy - but likeable nonetheless. Besides, the sequel's never as good as the original.
If you liked the first KOM, then this cart is more of the same and you won't be disappointed. But if you want more options, more fighters and more moves, you'd better move to another King-dom.
