The King of Fighters '98: Ultimate Match
8 May 2009
Conclusion: This is what King of Fighters '98: Ultimate Match is; a pizza that was already delicious given an extra layer of delight so that you might eagerly devour even more of it. So, without delay--devour. ..
Conclusion: And so I raise a toast to Ignition Entertainment. I have no idea how much longer SNK fans will be dealing with you, but I know we hope for it to be as long as possible.

12 April 2009
Excerpt: My first King of Fighters experience was the Dreamcast's Dream Match 1999 , which was actually a remake of The King of Fighters '98 . For 1998, SNK re-assembled their greatest modern warriors for one grand battle before moving on to a new storyline and new roster.

Conclusion: I might very well be the last King of Fighters fan in the Western hemisphere. [ That's the one with Fatal Fury 's Terry Bogard. ~Ed. Nick ] I love a good match against just about anybody, even if I'll never make it to a world championship challenge.

Cons: Series has not evolved sinced 1994, Too many characters, too little variety, Difficulty is all over the place
Excerpt: The King has left the building. I might very well be the last King of Fighters fan in the Western hemisphere. [ That's the one with Fatal Fury 's Terry Bogard. ~Ed. Nick ] I love a good match against just about anybody, even if I'll never make it to a world championship challenge.

Conclusion: King of Fighters 98: Ultimate Match is a nice addition to any KoF fan's library, but it may be too old school or simply overwhelming for newcomers. Still, it's hard to argue the price point.
Excerpt: Alors que les jeux de baston en 2D se font de plus en plus rares chez nous, il reste encore certaines références en la matière qui ont droit à de nouveaux volets assez régulièrement. C'est le cas de la grande série des « King of Fighters » développée par SNK Playmore.
