I always thought the 32x version was by far the best version of MK2 of that generation. Maybe even better than the psx and saturn versions. The graphics were at least equal to, if not better than the snes version. Lots of little details (like the color of some parts of the backgrounds) and not so minor details (like the color of Johnny Cage...) are more accurate. Seemed like more animation was present too.
The sound was a mixed bag. It had all the voice samples the genesis version was missing, but I'm not sure if all of those were in the snes version or not. They sounded much better on the 32x than the old genesis version too. Still a bit muddier than what was present in the snes port though. The music still was poor, and I don't remember it being much different from the genesis version. Could have been exactly the same, in fact.
The big clincher for me was the play control. It was MUCH tighter on the 32x version than the snes. I could pull off combos on 32x that worked on the arcade and weren't possible on the snes port.
