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 dreamian

Trivia

Baraka's first mask was bigger and looked like Shrek. It didn't work out. Afterwards they bought a Nosferatu mask and attached bigger teeth to it, which led to the Baraka as portrayed in the game. See more »

Alternate Versions

The Sega Genesis version has a hidden finishing move that does not appear on any other platform of the game. Via a cheat menu, Rayden players on the armory stage can turn a defeated opponent into a small guy in a cheesy tuxedo, and the game calls this a "Fergality". This cheat menu also turns on a different "Toasty" face and accesses a hidden Blue Portal stage. See more »

User Reviews

By far the best of the series
1 May 2001 | by action-6See all my reviews

"Mortal Kombat 2" remains the best of the MK-series, and can be fun to play even after all these years. MK 2 adds better graphics faster gameplay and a whole host of enhancements and improvements over the original game. The amount of blood has been greatly increased and there are lots of new finishing moves for the old and new characters. The atmosphere of this classic game is what lifts it above its younger brothers.

10/10
