The King of Fighters: Neowave PS2 Review

Console Obsession
31 May 2010
  • Excerpt: The King of Fighters: Neowave, whilst largely similar to other entries in SNK’s popular scrapping series is still perhaps the biggest departure in the history of the series. Every prior iteration of the game were Neo-Geo powered, Whilst Neowave relocated to the fresher hardware of the Atomiswave and now jumps to the PS2. The King of Fighters is rarely a series that deviates from a well known path, perhaps in fear of alienating its passionate fan-base.

The King of Fighters Neowave Review

8 January 2008
  • Excerpt: You probably wouldn't know it from looking at it, but The King of Fighters: Neowave, while ostensibly similar to the rest of SNK's flagship fighting series, marks perhaps the biggest departure so far in the series' history. While every previous instalment has made its home on the perennial Neo-Geo hardware, unchanged since 1990, Neowave made its home on the newer Atomiswave system before now making the jump to PS2.

The King of Fighters Neowave

19 October 2007
  • Conclusion: Overall, KoF Neowave is a really good game, which has loads of characters that will take forever to master, each with pages and pages of moves to learn. There are enough single player modes to play through before you even think about the main meat of the game – playing against your friends, which as always with fighting games, is the best part. Still not quite as good as Street Fighter III, but this is still a highly enjoyable 2D fighting game.
  • Pros: A truckload of characters with lots of fighting styles, Plays flawlessly - you really feel connected to the characters, Fantastic presentation all around
  • Cons: It’s not quite got the same amount of depth as SFIII, Maybe, many characters?

King of Fighters: Neowave PS2 Review

20 November 2006
  • Excerpt: The Neo-Geo was home to some of the world’s greatest 2D games, thanks to its 24-bit graphic capabilities in a 16-bit world. Despite the console and games selling for ridiculous prices throughout its entire 14 year tenure, the Neo-Geo survived until 2004 before SNK finally pulled the plug on it. King of Fighters: Neowave hit the arcades that year, and was the first of the series to be running on Sammy’s new 128-bit Atomiswave hardware.

The King of Fighters : Neowave

27 December 2007
  • Excerpt: Il y a certains rituels qui reviennent chaque année à cette saison : les vendanges, les pommes, la nouvelle saison de la Star Academy et King of Fighters. Eh oui, nous ne pouvons y échapper, un nouvel épisode est arrivé. Et pour nous faire passer la pilule discrètement, le jeu est estampillé d'un joli NeoWave recouvrant la globalité de la série. Dites Messieurs Dames de chez SNK, ne vous manquerait-il pas un peu d'imagination ?

The King of Fighters Neowave

16 July 2006
  • Conclusion: Al met al is The King of Fighters Neowave een spelletje waar je je zeker een paar weken goed mee kunt vermaken. Toch is het ontbreken van een verhaal, de matig opgevoerde graphics en het ontbreken van een online modus in de PlayStation 2-versie een gemis. Maar ach, deze puntjes neem je toch voor wel voor lief gezien de aantrekkelijke prijs van ongeveer 29 euro waarvoor de game wordt verkocht.
  • Pros: Xbox Live, Vechtsysteem, Prijs
  • Cons: Geen PlayStation 2 online, Grafisch niet vooruitstrevend, Geen echte verhaallijn
