  • 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. If you can put this same amount of quality behind KOF XII, then you will have given this franchise more love and care than it has...

The King has left the building.

Game Revolution
6 April 2009
  • 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.
  • Pros: Sprites are animated so well, Round music is forgettable but nice, Controls are easy to grasp
  • Cons: Series has not evolved sinced 1994, Too many characters, too little variety, Difficulty is all over the place

  • 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.
