Excerpt: , wouldn’t you assume it was a decade-old game? Well, this one actually just came out last month for the PS2, and we figured it’d be fun to take a trip down memory lane. See, even though it’s brand new, it still holds to the same old-school foundations that will appeal to all you veteran fans of the genre.
Excerpt: In the business industry, there is something called a cash cow. A cash cow is a product that consistently sells well to a specific audience in order to fund a new venture to take the brand in exciting new directions. This expression wholly typifies what King of Fighter '98 Ultimate Match is trying to be. It exists only to tide fans over until KoF XII is released, but it is such a tremendous display of fan service, it gambles alienating people unfamiliar with the series.
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.
