King of Fighters: Maximum Impact PS2 Review

Console Obsession
31 May 2010
  • Excerpt: The King of Fighters series has now officially enjoyed a decade of success. This 2D fighting franchise has always been one of the biggest rivals to Capcom’s Street Fighter series and the staying power of the brand is further proof of this. Now King of Fighters is entering uncharted land with the shift into 3D.

  • Conclusion: THE VERDICT: As a transition from a 2D series to a 3D game it is very successful, but the developers' lack of experience in this area shows through in a few areas. Long time fans of the KOF series will probably be split in their opinion - some overjoyed to see favourite characters in a new guise, others depressed about the unbalanced play and button-bashing-friendly design.

  • Excerpt: King of Fighters: Maximum Impact is SNK's latest attempt at a 3D fighter and the result is actually pretty good. Unlike the rest of the KoF series, Maximum Impact has the speed, controls, and flow to actually appeal to the mainstream and not just to hardcore SNK fans. Read our full review to find out more.

King of Fighters: Maximum Impact

Game Over Online
9 November 2004
  • Excerpt: 2D fighters have not traditionally made smooth transitions to 3D. Capcom's Street Fighter EX series can't compare to the original SF games, and before the relative success of Deadly Alliance , Midway released the laughable Mortal Kombat 4 . SNK's had mixed success with 3D before now; their biggest advantage is that their worst 3D games are also the hardest ones to find.

King of Fighters Maximum Impact

13 September 2012
  • Summary: Mit King of Fighters Maximum Impact präsentiert SNK Playmore die King of Fighters Serie zum ersten Mal in der dritten Dimension. Erfahrung konnten sie ja schon mit Fatal Fury: Wild Ambition und den drei Polygon Samurai Shodown Teilen (Hyper NeoGeo 64, PlayStation) sammeln. Zum 10 jährigen Jubiläum wird sogar eine Bonus-DVD und ein Hochglanz-Booklet mitgeliefert.
  • Pros: Sprung nach 3D geglückt, Umfangreiche Spielmodi, Abwechslungsreiche Stages
  • Cons: Kollisionsabfrage fehlerhaft, Charakterdesign teils misslungen, Sound arg unauffällig

SingStar Anthems Disco Klassiker

Spieletipps.de
10 June 2006
  • Summary: Ich bin ein großer "SingStar"-Fan und habe bisher alle Versionen in meinem Schrank. Nun aber den gleichen Preis zu zahlen und dafür nur zwei Drittel der sonst üblichen Songs zu bekommen stimmt mich schon etwas sauer. Vielleicht sollte man sich wieder etwas mehr Zeit zwischen den einzelnen "SingStars" lassen. Bei besserer Qualität werden es die Fans danken. Thematisch gefällt mir "Anthems" deutlich besser als das eher weniger gut singbare Deutsch Rock-Pop.
