    Mortal Kombat II still manages to stand up almost 15 years later as one of the best arcade fighters around. The inclusion of online play only strengthens the replayability of the game.
  3. Mortal Kombat II has aged well technologically, and as long as you're getting the game for competitive play, it's a must buy, as the online play will keep fanatics of the game happy for a while, lack of voice chat or not.

    Mortal Kombat II can't hold its own in today's market like some titles from the Golden-Age of gaming. The nostalgia runs high with the digitized sprites of the fighters and the color swaps of costumes to make three fighters out of one (Reptile, Scorpion, and Sub-Zero) but it won't last long.
  5. MKII gives a fascinating insight into how far fighting games have come in the last decade and a half. [Sept 2007, p.114]

    MK2 was my life back when it was first release and it STILL remains as my all-time favorite game. Many versions were released throughout the years and nonee of them were arcade perfect...until now. This one is a FLAWLESS port of the arcade. Its actually a little better to be honest because the controls are very crisp and smooth, 720p resolution, and online play will make this one stand tall for a long time to come. If you're a Mortal Kombat fan, don't hesistate to spend $5 on this. Its a steal!!! Expand

    Everyone loved MK, but when you play it after a few years the game just seems too competitive (most arcade games are). The developers could have at least made a in-game game manual to hep me remember the moves. MK2 was only popular because it had blood and more violence than Street Fighter. That game is more fun and has ten times the replayability and learning curve than MK2. If I were you I would wait for Super Street Fighter 2 Turbo: HD Remix. Expand

    Fun game, multiplayer offline and online is included. Great graphics. Why so low score? Difficulty. I guess this port they decided to make it more difficult? The arcade version is much easier. Even on difficulty "Level 1" it's still very challenging. It's very annoying. Expand
