Reviews and Problems with The King of Fighters XII
Showing 1-10 of 94
A pretty good 'fighter'. (in my humble opinion)

Summary: This game is super awsome! And the best 2-D graphics I've ever hoped to see. But the only thing that disappointed me was that it didn't have any boss battles. Otherwise the game is an outright master peace! :) Even though, I have to say that KOF XIII was much better than XII. But for anyone who is interested in the story, I suggest starting from KOF 95.
Dated graphics, same old KOF, Really bad soundtrack,--

Summary: Trying to sell it. Anyone want to buy this piece of @#$%#$%!!!!! Poorly done stages and the characters are way too cheap looking on a HDMI TV. This ain't '95 anymore folks. Did I mention the lousy online play? Guess what? The stamps I'd need to sell this on Amazon.com cost more than the game should. Geez.
Summary: not a good game , is boring, what about the characters so bad, i ate ho the did those characters, o well not a good game play, dont buy it until you are a fan of kof and want to have all the games from the saga even if some of those are bad!!!
Summary: As a completionist, I had to get this game. After popping it in, I was quite shocked at the different movesets and smaller roster than the usual games. There's also no special intros like between Kyo & Iori or Kensou & Athena. With just a Time trial as the only mode, it felt like half a game. The AI isn't very smart, and I had to double-check the options to make sure I was playing at normal. Unlocking the galley and earning all the trophies will be hard.
Summary: I've been a KOF fan since KOF 94.. I LOVE KOF... but i was so apalled with KOF XII that i returned it the same day to Gamestop and got my money back... Thank God for KOF XIII that came out recently.... now that one... I love!!!!!
Summary: Some big importand person in Ignition Entertainment said somthing like "I want to make a super simple and basic fighting game" and because they lit their cigar with a hundred dollar bill, they got their wish. They gat a game with no story, no gigantic combos, no complicated controlles, and no need to memorize command imputs, They got a game that someone who has never played a video game ever can pick up and enjoy.
Summary: Not the longest game, a mash of previous versions but not really showing anyone new to the franchise why people love it. If you a hardcore KOF fan grab it, if you are just interested in good games, you could probably give this a miss.
Summary: I'm a KOF fan since KOF 94... This game isn't the worst game off all, but isn't the best either...94, 95, 02, XII are the best...96, 97, 99, 01, 02, 03 are medium...98 and 00 are worst... It has beatiful graphics, but only 5 arenas...only 22 fighters...a poor variety of special moves...doesn't have a history...and you only play 5 matches in a strange time trial mode (the "arcade" mode)...
Summary: The design and sprite work in this game are gorgeous, but doesn't compare to the recent KOF13. The roster is only half of what the new game holds, so it doesn't feel quite that complete. I would honestly wait till 13 comes out then purchase that one.
