Mortal Kombat: Shaolin Monks Part 2

Well, we finished up this game. My prediction was correct; this game is essentially the story of Mortal Kombat 2 following directly after the end of Mortal Kombat.

After playing through the game, the only bosses that presented a problem were Reptile and Shao Khan. More so the latter. My new opinion is that the game is a little too easy, except for the end. However, we did not run through the game again to get all the extras or on Hard mode.

We actually got the ability to be Scorpion or Subzero. In my opinion, they are much more fun than being Liu Kang or Kung Lao. Unfortunately, if you play the game with them, the other characters still refer to you as Kang and Lao, so it's a bit over-cheesy.

This game would have been a lot better if you could pick ANY of the MK2 characters to play (including Noob Saibot and Jade) with their respective stories and different bosses accordingly. The other characters wouldn't even need the full-length game; it would have just been nice.

We also played vs mode once, but it wasn't that exciting. For good vs action, stick with Deadly Alliance or Deception.

This game is worth playing through at least once. I can't say a gamer would want to run through the game a 2nd time right away.
