Hello I almost do not write a negative critic and when I write it is because I am not satisfied with a game. I Am a big fan of the saga and played all the games in the highest difficulty, I have challenging friends, acquaintances and known pure fun. I Was excited when it was announced that this game and the KOF 2002 UM for PC Personally expected the game to be much better and updated than the PS2 version, a great disappointment:, (the game has nothing FINAL EDITION just the logo. Does Not have Ecenarios 3D has No music arranged which is the feature that I like the game on PS2 Few achievements are Already unlocked all the characters. No One Online to play so far... Who knows later... In the version of PS2 it is hard to get all the characters and that was a challenge that could well be added to the achievements. They Are supposed to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the King of Fighters, should give shame to the creators of this version by offering this game with delayed departure. In These times it is not possible to take out a game that seems to be taken from an old PC recreation machine. It Was a waste of money that I could take advantage of with a much better game than this. If you want the game, I recommend you wait for it to be on sale, because this game is not worth what it costs.

Good that more can be said, is a KOF, and if you really are a fan, you must have it in your collection, the game is based on the latest arcade version (which indicates a rebalancing of movements in most of the characters) and Xbox Live interface , for fans of fighting games and the old schools will love, as I said before, being based on the ARCADE version, is just as it is, the old but pretty graphics, please do not pray or wait for 3D SCENARIOS, or music with arrangements , DOES NOT COME OR will BE IN THIS VERSION, at least in my personal opinion is not necessary, what if you miss is a filter even to soften tantito pixels in modern monitors. Now While the game has many negative ratings is because of the delay suffered and to promise a game polished and higher than Xbox Live, which is TOTALLY FALSE, the game came out riddled with errors and an ONLINE system unPLAYable. So what's the delay? No one knows, it's one more mystery of life. PEEERO....... So wait for me to do my criticism, as the Lords of CODEMYSTICS got hand and managed to at least solve in almost all the problems that brought the game at the beginning, so you criticize that does not run, Crasheo are for the first review , in this last (1.02) The game is quite stable. Now we go to those who concern the majority and how IS THE ONLINE GAME? From my humble point of view and from what I have played I feel MORE STABLE than KOF XIII, the delay with most of the ones I have played is "almost" non-existent, unless they play with someone on the opposite side of the globe balloon, they will be able to play not very well that we say , it's actually better up to now than the same Ultra Street Fighter 4. So If you really like KOF, should give a chance to the game, is cheap and I think it is worth having this official way and continue to support so that perhaps in some future we see other releases of other KOF, Haste Shodowns, Fatal Furys or why not? Maybe a completely new PC delivery.
