King Of The Monsters II discussion
priest
Hi and welcome to this week Game Of The WeekSmile

Another Game of the week, this time we put KING OF THE MONSTERS II under the microscope. This game probably got some "inspiration" from the game RAMPAGE in which the players (1-4) would take the role of a monster and scale high buildings and destroy said buildings and each other. Much like the story of KOTM2 in other words (exept th scaling of buildings). I enjoy this game in small portions now and then, but more importantly what do you think about it?

Genre: Monster beatīem up
Players 2
Size 74 MEGS
Released on: MVS, AES, CD, SUPER FAMICOM...?

Brief Description:

Pick a monster out of three and destroy another monster while using The metropolitan cities of the world as your battleground. The earthlings are not going to have any of this however, so they will try to stop you too.

It was better than the original, back in the day, and still is. However, KOTM2 is ultimately forgettable because its competitors, Street Fighter II and Mortal Kombat, overshadow this one. At the time KOTM2 wasn't mainstream enough, nor violent.

Even though it looks like Rampage in some aspects, the difficulty in this game is ridiculous. Angry

Yes, it was going to be this GotW. Though, I was a bit late in putting this up, and Priest chose this one for some reason... o.o;

(it was going up today, Priest, I was just a bit late D: )
Without love, the truth cannot be seen.

Now what, is SS2 gonna be for next week then, or...? Shrug

Not a game I own although I have played it on emu and in arcades years ago. I never really warmed to these games although the graphics are nice the games I find are shallow and over difficult. As I do not own a copy of this game or the first I will try a bid if I see it cheap on MVS/CVD just for collecting purposes that will maybe encourage me to play it if ive paid for it so I have voted at this time I don't really like it.

I really like this game. It's a big improvement over the original with much better graphics and the gameplay doesn't feel quite as frustrating either. The boss designs are pretty cool and the scrolling sections and bonus rounds add some variety. Playing this game in 2 player co-op or versus mode is really fun too. It's a pity there are fewer monsters to choose from than in the original game though.

The problem I have with this game though is that it's still far too difficult. The CPU opponents always seem to win more grapples than you no matter what you do. Also on the last stage you have to fight all the bosses again and then the alien King Farmady who takes up about a third of the screen and has a very long lifebar. I do like this game but in single player mode it's far too difficult.

OK guys I can take the blame for this. I would explain this as a lack of communication between me and the eccentric cat or my will to help (in this case unwanted and missplaced) out and post a matching GOTW to the HSC I just had posted.

My choice of game for the HSC and GOTW was based on this "GOTW suggestions thread":

http://www.neogeo...ad_id=2146

In which two members voted for King of the monsters 2 and as all the other games had been made GOTW I thought it would only be fair to listen to their requests as well.

This and I obviously missed the cats plans for the 50:th GOTW. So after this I will not try to help where Iīm not wanted and stick to the HSC.

I however think that there is nothing that says that there cannot be 2 GOTWs this week since there were weeks when the GOTW werenīt updated.

Iīm sorry bout all thisReal Sad

Thats alrightThumbs Up, at least you should have looked up our previous suggestion post when you had the chance, but there's no blame in that though, at least the next one will be SS2 this time. Grin

The Stray: The thread: http://www.neogeo...ad_id=2146 I refer to was posted in november of last year and since we do all the games suggested in order of highest votes to the lowest of votes, I thought / still think this was the fair thing to do.

Ah, its ok Priest. I'm sorry if I came off sounding anal. ^^;

Its somewhat my fault as well, what with me being late with GotW and all. x_x

But no worries now, on with King of the Monsters 2!

ABSOLUTELY NO NEED...
to apologise Priest and furthermore there is NO 'blame' to be had. Please don't ever feel bad for doing the right thing. I simply said what I said out of confusion (i.e. SS2 > KOM2). Like you said, if you had no idea that there was a vote taking place, and you missed the thread (easily done?) then that's that! It doesn't matter what the game is. What matters is that we're lucky here as members to have other fellow members, such as yourself and Cat (amongst others), who are willing and responsible enough to do that bit extra to help everyone out and to help keep the site ticking over. That's what's MOST important. It's true. Who cares what the next GOTW is as long as it's simply a different title from one that has gone before! Hell, the Neo only has around <200 titles anyway... but it should keep GOTW going for a good few years eh? Wink

SS2 can wait...

Hey Priest, don't be so hard on yourself man! You tried your best to help out and we all know that there were no sinister intentions behind it, only good will! Cheer up!

As for the game in question, two things: the graphics and music are absolutely stunning in this game! The game itself is pretty lacking however. The first KoM had an interesting premise being a wrestling game using a city as the playing field and characters based on monsters from monster movies. A good premise but dear god did it get repetitive. This game changes things up a bit and tries to give it more of a movie feel with different segments that don't all involve just wrestling. Sadly, the game is unbeliavably cheap though and much of the gameplay revolves around nothing but pure button mashing.

Personally I only come back for this game for the really awesome soundtrack and to remind myself how rididculously hard the cool looking bosses are. There was a damn cool port for the Genesis that allowed more special moves and playable versions of the bosses, much more in style with the original game.

There was a GOTW thread for this? I need to come here more often.

This game has some of the best graphics on the Neo, I'm serious. Sure it may not have 100-odd frames of animation like Last Blade but each of the environment is ridiculously detailled and the theme is well put together. The music isn't as good but it fits the mood well.

As for the gameplay... Eh, true, the grapple system is ridiculously unfair. And the last stage is one of the stupidest thing I have seen in a arcade game. But, by developing some tactics and observing the boss attacks, I could consistently reach the Sea Bed stage on one credit. At least the difficulty here is intentional instead of being the result of shitty programming (hello Burning Fight).

It's a pity there are fewer monsters to choose from than in the original game though.



The only difference between the monsters in the first game was how well they did specific moves. Here, they have completely specials and basic attack. Though I do miss Beatle Mania.

I hope in the future they make King of the Monsters 3. Add new stages, new monsters and new themes and everything. It will be great.
