Storyline

Following his defeat, Shang Tsung begs his master, Shao Kahn, to spare his life. He tells Shao Kahn that the invitation for Mortal Kombat cannot be turned down, and if they hold it in Outworld, the Earthrealm warriors must attend. Kahn agrees to this plan, and restores Tsung's youth. He extends the invitation to Raiden, who gathers his warriors and takes them into Outworld. The tournament is dangerous, as Shao Kahn has the home field advantage, and an Outworld victory will unbalance the furies and allow Outworld to subsume Earthrealm. Written by Anonymus

Trivia

When the first Mortal Kombat was released on the Super Nintendo Entertainment System, Nintendo, who had a family acceptability policy that included the prohibition of graphic depictions of death and excessive violence in games released on its systems, asked for the gore from that game to be removed and to tone down the more gruesome fatalities. Consequently that version sold poorly. As a result, Nintendo finally agreed to capitulate on those guidelines for Mortal Kombat II and allowed all the original gore and fatalities to appear in the US and UK SNES versions (the Japanese version was censored, such as having green blood), but still put a warning on the box. The SNES version was considered to be the best home version available and its sales reflected that. See more »

Bloody magnificent!
24 January 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

"Mortal Kombat II," out just a year after the original, is one of the greatest video game sequels of all time. Returning some characters from the first (Liu Kang, Johnny Cage, Rayden, Reptile, and Shang Tsung) and introducing new characters (Kitana, Mileena, Jade, Jax, Kung Lao, and Baraka) and new stage fatalities (and character fatalities), it's the greatest in kombative entertainment. Ed Boon and John Tobias are geniuses in my book. "Mortal Kombat 3" was just a few years down the road, but it's also easy to appreciate how far kombat has come since 1992. "Deadly Alliance," "Deception," "Shaolin Monks," and the upcoming "Armageddon" are masterpieces of bloody marvelous martial arts action. "Mortal Kombat" forever!
