Love it or hate it, Mortal Kombat has become a household name since its release in 1991. A fighting game that utilized digitized actors depicting acts of gratuitous violence certainly caused a stir amongst critics, and received fairly widespread backlash from politicians. This was a dark yet exciting time for game players, as they got to lavish in a fight to the death—courtesy of their local arcade. But it wasn't until the release of the sequel—aptly titled Mortal Kombat II—that the foundations ...
Typically, fighting games don't interest me all that much. But I grew up with Mortal Kombat. This game was the first one I played, and it remains to be my favorite.

So before 2007 what did we...
Blood and gore is all you need in Mortal Kombat II. The gameplay in this game is pretty much identical from the first Mortal Kombat, with some fatality changes. Also with twice the characters introducing awesome characters too. You can pull of moves and specials to drain your opponents health, and then finish him off with a fatality full of blood.
