Mortal Kombat 2 (Acclaim, 1995)
The sequel to Mortal Kombat, this game better succeeds in being a faithful representation of the arcade game. The music, voices, animation, and (generally) the graphics of the original are maintained. The largest problem that this game suffers from is that it is quite memory intensive, and, on lesser systems, unless most of the options are turned off, the game will be very difficult (if not impossible) to play due to the speed decrease. In addition, the keyboard control is still klunky. Once again, if you are a fan of the arcade game, you will probably enjoy Mortal Kombat 2.
