I'm a pretty avid gamer, especially for fighting games... I love the King of Fighters series, Street Fighter, and the lot. I was sorely disappointed when I got this game. No options, the multi-player online is broken, and there's nothing to keep you going. It was too easy! The AI sucks. The only thing going for it was nostalgia and the graphics (even if there are jaggies)...

I got this game in the mail on Friday, and playing on the default medium difficulty, finished it in 9 minutes. Now I'm not remotely considered a KOF player. 5 fights before the game ends, and with now last boss, storyline, or endings. I have never seen such a lazy effort in making a fighting game. But I have a soft spot for 2d fighters (brought both BlazBlue and SF4 on day one), and I thought this game might make me a hardcore King of Fighters player. Very weak character list, and most of special moves have been stripped (This Terry Bogard is the Fatal Fury 2 version with no power dunk), and absolutely no extras or rewards. The online play is atrocious, trust me. Don't even try...

The absolute only thing positive about this game are the Backgrounds. They definitely astronomical standard in 2D art and beauty. Sadly, there are only 4 backgrounds total. Had the game since Friday and sending it back on Monday. That's only because 9 minutes after beating the game the mail man was already out of sight.

P.S. I feel bad for those who paid $65 for this game. I've downloaded longer demos than this.

I always played KoF since 94 ... and now they come with this joke graphics are OK, gameplay is not good anymore, no story no fun, they destroyed Iori which used to be a great character to play with and missing other good ones like K' Dash, Mai, Shingo etc ... This is the first time that I see an awesome franchise get worse in several ways like I said is very sad . Not recommended !
