While critics insulted and panned the original Mortal Kombat, Acclaim came back to throw a much more disgusting, sadistic, fun game in their faces with this 90s video game sequel. Mortal Kombat II is simply one of the best fighting games of all time.
While the plot is pretty razor thin, it’s still somewhat interesting and worth the time to read it over on your first play through. The villains who won the original Mortal Kombat tournament have opened a portal leading to Outworld and the heroes must fight in the tournament to save the Earth from destruction.
While the fatalities in the original Mortal Kombat weren’t that impressive and lacked style, the sequel spares no expense at making them bloodier, more violent, more disgusting. It’s times like these I am glad to be a gamer. Kung Lao’s fatality of slicing the opponent in half down the middle is still a gory favorite of mine. Jax also has a pretty funny one where he rips off the opponents arms as a fountain of blood sprays from the sockets. Fortunately, every character has their fair share of disgusting finishers.
