Excerpt: ) makes a big splash with their first North American release, entitled King of Fighters 2000 / 2001. As the title suggests, this is a double pack of games--two DVDs in one package, retailing for $29.99.
Excerpt: The visuals of SNK's King of Fighters 2000 and King of Fighters 2001 certainly aren't up to specs with more contemporary 2D fighters. They aren't bad however, and it really wouldn't be an SNK fighter without that distinctive old school look. Most of the glitter and sparks that accompany special attacks are fairly impressive. Oddly enough, the actual characters themselves are probably the most visually unattractive aspects of the game.
