Summary: Best KOF since '99. Best since the bankruptcy. Best EVER?? Uh... Noooo, but... I would NOT argue with someone who said it was their fav. Backgrounds not full sprite/hand drawn , but are amazing again , backed with the detail TOTALLY missing from the last metal slug release... This is a GREAT game. I love it. It firmly belongs in the canon and is certainly the best since the Dreamcast ports of 2001 etc. it's better then 01 I think. Just get it.
Summary: This game is very well done. If there is one thing I have to warn anybody about, is that getting the hang of this one is a bit difficult. I'm a huge fighting game fan and I play competitively. The timing of everything in King of Fighters is different than most fighting games. I do not reccomend this to a casual gamer for that reason.
