King of Fighters is a classic side scrolling fighting game which has been updated to 3-D glory. Choose from 20 characters for fighting fun. Each character has 2 outfits to choose from. There are guys and girls, fair skinned and dark. There should be someone for everyone to enjoy playing here.
While that might seem like a lot, in the "old days" you had 30 or more characters to choose from. It almost seems like you're having to compromise here. Maybe future games will be able to handle more models in the 3D system.
While not as gorgeous as a few other fighting games out on the market, there are still many nice touches here - falling leaves, roaring waterfalls. Each character has his or her own set of moves and unique look.
The sound is pretty traditional and classic - fast paced drumming music and called out taunts, both in English and Japanese. The voice acting isn't always stellar, but heck, that's not exactly why you play a fighting game.
You can choose from story mode, mission mode or challenge mode, and ramp up and down the difficulty from 10 different settings to really tweak the game to match your skill set.
If you're a fan of the King of Fighters series, this is definitely one to get your hands on. If you've never played the King of Fighters series before, it might be time to give this a try.
