MK2 Online
06/27/2015 07:25 PM EST
I got interested in Mortal Kombat very recently, around the time MKX released. I watched the whole MK9 and it made me kind of want to play one of the original games. To that end, I recently beat the arcade version of Mortal Kombat 2. (I couldn't get past the second character until I played the gameboy version and actually learned how to sweep and uppercut and stuff). It was pretty hard, but also quite satisfying....

But I hear that the skillsets for beating single player and actually playing w/ other people are hecka different..... which is a bit of a relief because I kept wondering how CPUs were so good at grabbing and using projectiles. But also I never learned how to block. What do I need to get better at if I want to play one of the classic MK games online?

Also is MK2 even a good game to be picking up? Should I be playing like, UMK3 instead? Also what's the most common way people play Mortal Kombat online? Like which emulator, etc should I be using? Thanks in advance guys.

Most players just play the MK Arcade Kollection for Xbox 360 or PS3 at this point. It used to be Ultimate MK3 for Xbox 360, but most people dropped that completely with MKAK came out.

I'd say playing UMK3 might be a bit more fun because it's more complex. It has a lot of the gameplay from previous games, but you have the combo system to master. That alone separates characters very quickly, and it's fun to experiment.

Most people would say MK II is a solid choice though. I'd say keep practicing, learn how to get in close and throw a barrage of punches without being punished, and learn how to effectively use special moves.

Start your journey in MK1,learning the basics,then move up to MK II for a slightly more.challenging game.Finally,progress to UMK3 for a more hyper speed style of Kombat.CPU compared to online play is WAYYYY different.I hated how fighters predict your every move...so broken.

I can't decide between MK II or UMK3...I love them all.If only the UMK3 fatals were just as realisticas MKII then it would of been flawless...well...except for the infinite kombos.
WATAHHHHHHHHH!!!

Play through one a few times, maybe beat the game with like 2 or 3 characters. Then I would play through 2 and UMK3 once or twice too, and by that time you probably have an idea of which one you feel more comfy with lol
