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

The best 2D MK game to date
1 May 2006 | by (North Carolina) – See all my reviews

Mortal Kombat 2 upped the bar from the previous MK game and set a standard for the other few 2D MK games that followed after it. The characters were increased. The previous characters from the first game were given a makeover. Most of them for the better. There is a new four armed sub boss added that being Kintaro and a new boss Shao Kahn. Who is hailed as one of the best MK bosses by many. Also in my opinion both Kintaro and Kahn are some of the hardest bosses in any MK game.

The characters are also given two fatalities in this game as opposed to one fatality in the first game. The fatalities are more gruesome than that of the first games fatalities. There are also a few more stage fatalities in this game. Just like Reptile in the last game. There are hidden characters in this game. Except this time there is three. Not much else to say about it. Except that it was a great game for it's time and still holds up today to a certain extent. It raised the bar even higher for violence and stamped it's place into gaming history.
