After many months of updates to the original arcade game Mortal Kombat 2 Revision 3.1 from an anonymous hacker it has finally reached the release stage as "Ultimate Mortal Kombat 2 Revision 5.0"
Ultimate Mortal Kombat 2 Tournament Edition
There are many small updates to the gameplay that make the game more balanced that the fixes list PDF [pdf zip] is over 50 pages long. Some of you may know about the major changes to the core engine of the game where walking has been fixed and low kicks were fixed to be a much more useful tool. But now there are tweaks to nearly every special in the game and even some new specials that help some of the low tier characters that struggled versus high tier characters previously.
Four familiar palette swaps are now accessible during gameplay for player 2 during mirror matches and Shang Tsung morphs to avoid confusion of which character is your own. This is more likely to happen with Scorpion and Mileena, as their teleports and cross-ups are purposely designed to confuse you.
UMK2 is far more balanced than the original MK2 and the game is simply more fun now that 4 times the number of characters are useful at a high level. I encourage you all to download the patch and update your copy of MK2.
