Rated 10 out of 10 by Mistery-Man The way it was meant to be played
This is a great game to purchase, there is so much extra content of this remake of the original KOF 98. You can play the original arcade version of the game, there is more characters and variations in gameplay for some characters, there is also a new mode where you can mix and match styles from the advance and extra styles of gameplay, meaning that you can have the rolling move from the advance mode and be able to charge your super special move from the extra mode .The backgrounds are 3D which gives it a cool look and feel, the game will look good even on your HDTV and the settings for the style of graphics can be changed. I noticed that the moves are easier to perform on the ps2 or ps3 controller, the controls are very responsive. If you enjoy 2D fighting games then you should get this game which is a great addition to your collection of fighting games.

It's not often that I purchase a PS2 game, but being a SNK fan, this game at $***** is a great deal! New characters, better gameplay, and more fighting options. It's a good play. I didn't know until I purchased the product that it includes a Bonus Disc and poster. The Bonus Disc contains trailers of KOF 98 and KOF 12 for the PS3 and 360! This is worthing checking out by itself. KOF12 looks great. I hope the price of this one is like KOF98, but probably not. Poster is KOF 98 on one side and KOF12 on the other. You can download additional covers for the game like you can with Madden, and maybe a change in the cover art is warranted. The box is a bit "cheesy". All in all it's worth the price especially if you are into the original fighting games and SNK.
