King of the Monsters 2 is a hybrid brawler/wrestling game with a giant monster theme from SNK. Unlike its predecessor, which focused on one-on-one combat, this game features traditional brawler stages as well as more elaborate boss fights and even a competitive mode. It's notable for its unique concept, bizarre enemy design, and huge movesets.
3 YEARS LATER, ONLY 3 MONSTERS SURVIVED.
EVERYONE BELIEVED THEY WOULD RULE THE EARTH, BUT...
This game was somewhat faithfully ported to the SNES. There's also a Genesis version, but it removes the brawler portions and is just a one-on-one fighter.
The monsters in this game are clearly based off of classic monster movies like Godzilla and King Kong.
King of the Monsters 2 has a fantastic concept that's backed up by excellent enemy design and graphics. Its combat is satisfying but feels a little sloppy and sluggish. The brawler sections are somewhat limited because at its core it's a wrestling game. The special techniques are super imaginative and take the gameplay to the next level.
