thank you. everything was good. was shipped immediately and it works well and the cartridge is in good shape. i always write alot on these things bc amazin sends me all these emails insisting on reviews, so here are my lengthy verbose reviews.

i am such a nerd when i say this, but its really awesome how you can pause this game and take a break from all the button mashing(compared to other system versions of the game in which you cant pause the game). i understand reviewing the game itself is not what these reviews are meant for, but i cant help in expressing it. the simplicity of this version of the game makes it superior i think.

This is a greatly watered down version of the arcade classic Mortal Kombat 2. There are fewer characters and only two levels in the entire game. The main feature to note is that is it far superior to the original gameboy version of the first Mortal Kombat. While that game was very slow and changed the button combos for each character's special moves, this game keeps the speed at a high rate and uses more familiar button combos. I'd write this game of as only having the novelty of Mortal Kombat on the go. If you have an intense curiosity of every version of MK2 or if you want to complete your Game Boy collection then get this game. For the rest of you out there It's probably not terribly worth it.

Amazing quality. Shipped fast and the cartridge looks like it was never touched before which is always a bonus! The pins are immaculate. Loads and plays perfect!

A childhood favorite of mine that I haven't played in 20 years.
Came on time and in excellent condition, almost brand new!
So many memories!
One of the best original Gameboy game ever!

This is 1 of the best, if not THE best portable Mortal Kombat game ever! The graphics are great, the gameplay's very fast paced, the music's cool and the controls are very responsive. The fatalities are really cool and there's a stage fatality in a game, which can only happen in the Kombat Tomb level. You can also fight Jade and Smoke as well, but you need to do certian things in order to fight them. There's also a babality, but I haven't figured out on how to do that yet. It's such a huge improvement over MK1 on Game Boy. If you're a MK fan, I highly recommend this game cause it's definately 1 of my favorites.

Well look at that. It did come in today. My fellow mail people just can't read and put my package in the wrong mailbox. XD Well I can't wait to play it. The package is actually right here beside me, torn up, with the game right beside that. It looks amazing. Thanks!

I bought these games as a Christmas present and don't plan on playing them but delivery was prompt.

This is actually a pretty nice version of MK2 for a portable console. The play control is responsive and fun. There is none of the slowdown lag of the first MK Gameboy game. Each character is able to do a fatality. The game has a nice variety of characters and is quick and fun to play. The game could have been a great portable fighting game if only the developers would have fixed the following 3 things.

The 1st is the lack of the sub boss Kintaro, who is is not in this game. What a bummer battling Kintaro in the arcades and on the SNES is what really makes the game so much fun not Shoa Kahn. The previous Gameboy game MK1 was able to put Goro in the game why didn't they just delay the release and spend some more time to add Kintaro in the game. It could have paid a lot of dividends by boosting sales if they had been able to make it work.

The 2nd big issue with the game is the lack of stage variety. There is only 2 stage backgrounds and 1 hidden one Goro's lair. So you end up looking at the same backgrounds over and over making you bored of the game. The previous GB game had 3 backgrounds and you really notice the difference when you play this game.

The 3rd and final issue is lack of any endings for the game. Again this goes back to lack of effort on the game developers. They could have at least put in simple text of what happens when each character wins the tournament. MK1 for Gameboy did not do this either. Besides the boring old Congratulations and credits nothing to excite you are give you a reason to keep plying the game through with each character. It really hurts the replay value in the end.

Overall it is a nice game to play for about 15 to 20 minutes when you are out and about but easily forgettable. I would rate it 3 1/2 stars if only they put Kintaro in the game I would have been so much happier. The game was 2MB and the Gameboy was able to hold up to 4MB at the time so to me Acclaim kind of shortchanged the product. They could have put in the Sewer stage or Tree Stage that would not take up that much more memory and would have made a huge difference in the game.
