The King of Fighters Collection: The Orochi Saga
22 June 2009
Excerpt: Dear SNK Playmore, please stop releasing compilation after compilation of 10 year old games. I would much rather a new game that takes the genre forward instead of reliving the past. Now that I have that out of the way, The King of Fighters Collection: The Orochi Saga is a 5 game compilation from SNK's seminal fighting series starting with King of Fighters '94 and ending with King of Fighters '98 .

PSP/PS2/Wii Preview - 'The King of Fighters Collection: The Orochi Saga'
12 May 2009
Summary: The first ever collection of The King Of Fighters on the Wii, the most extensive KOF collection ever containing 5 complete games, consisting of KOF 94, 95, 96, 97, 98. Includes the Orochi Saga trilogy (95-97), Unlockable bonus content materials, while the PSP edition includes Ad-hoc mode.
Conclusion: With KoF XII on the imminent horizon, rumours of KoF ’98 hitting XBLA and Street Fighter IV recently released, it’s a good time to be a fan of fighting games. Five iconic fighters on a reasonably priced UMD should have been a sure-fire hit, but the ridiculous technical issues that plague The Orochi Saga make it hard to recommend to anyone. The King of Fighters deserves better than this sloppy port.
Conclusion: Such a careless attention to detail makes the PSP version feel rushed out the door. Why make a compilation of some of the most respected 2D's of all time if you're not going to forge a coherent versus mode? Still, there is plenty of content to keep you busy for a while, or maybe practice moves on the go so you can be ready for real matches back home.
