The sequel to the Street Fighter II-inspired World Heroes adds six colorful characters to the roster, bringing the total to 14, and some twists to the original game's three-button fighting scheme. As in the original title, characters are inspired by historical figures of different eras and countries. New fighters include Captain Kidd, whose special moves take the form of surging sharks; Johnny Maximum, a bruising American football player who literally punts away his rivals; and Erik, a Viking who uses Thor's hammer to flatten foes. While the action is structured similarly to its predecessor, offering both tournament and death match styles of play, World Heroes 2 incorporates a few significant changes. Characters can now initiate reversals, deflect projectiles back at rivals, and optionally share one tug-of-war-style life bar with their opponent. ~ Scott Alan Marriott, All Game Guide
