Summary: King of Fighters has and will probably be one of the best fighting games there has ever been. Tekken has nothing on this and neither does Street Fighter. This has been a game that anybody can get used to with its variety of characters and the way that the storyline can have the affect on you with the characters.
Summary: Back when fighting games ruled the arcades-back when there were arcades-the battle for quarters was never fiercer than the one between SNK and Capcom. Capcom may have refined tag-team fighting with Marvel vs. Capcom 2 and other titles, but SNK started the trend in 1994 with the first King of Fighters title. King brought together fighters from some of SNK's most popular franchises-most notably Fatal Fury and Art of Fighting-for team-based combat.
Summary: The KOF series is unquestionbly one of the longest running 2D fighting game franchises in the history of gaming. The last SNK developed KOF was '00 while a new company called Playmore picked up with '01. Many would argue the series hit its peak with '98 (available on the DC) and I couldn't agree more. It's not that these two games are bad, on the contrary. There is a ton of stuff to master for the initiated. The gameplay isn't so much the problem as it's appeal.
Summary: I love this game! I love fighting games! This game is better than street fighter! I always thought that Kof will never be as good as Street fighter, But boy was i wrong! The graphics are much detailed, The sound is okay... But no unlockable charecters... But the rest is 5 5 and 5!
Summary: This game is very awesom! Kof 2000's graphics have improved alot, Since 1999. There are alot of unlockables! In 2001 you can unlock 2 secret charecters, in 2000 you can unlock Videos of the good Kof classics! And unlock some secret strikers, From alot of Snk games! Although the art work arn't the one's we are use to... Kof 2001 art work is a little icky, But who cares? That's not the fun in the game!
Summary: This game should be the hottest fighting game ever! When i went to japan and played it... It was like i was in heaven!This game has new features and new rules. You can unlock old kof videos to remember the classics! It also has a very cool striker system as used in kof 99 where you can get with your partner and attack them out of no where! I Also like the graphics. There staying with snk's good ol' originals!
A solid package of 2 good games. Just make sure you have a good arcade stick.

Excerpt: When the Sega Dreamcast was officially put to rest in the West, with it went Western exposure to ports of SNK's great 2D fighting titles. While King of Fighters 2000 and King of Fighters 2001 both hit Sega's little white box in Japan, unless you imported, there was no way for you to get your hands on them outside of Asia.
