King of Fighters XI
King of Fighters
First off, this game is one of the more amazing KOF games, it's only rival sin th eSNK series being 98 and 2k2. This game involves a lot of practice and quick shift combo, it nerfs a lot of characters, but makes it up by adding an endless potential to combos with character combinations. Downside of this game is that top tier is Kula, Gato, Oswald, and often abused in arcades, the practice mode itself is good, but not great failing in comparison to agame like GGXX:AC. The event mode though interesting has one particuliar event[51 or 50] which is more or less about luck than anything else. The game itself fails when it comes to depth in comparison to games like 2k2, and 2k, but on the otherhand strongly dominates 2k3. Eitherway great fighting game, separates the scrubs from the pros. Buy it
I have always been a huge supporter of the KOF franchise & I have had to import most of the SNK fighters to america as many never reach these shores. KOF XI is by far the best 2-D fighter ever made so far. The game is fast paced with 3-on-3 battles & while games like these have a tendency to be button mashers stratagy plays a big part in its execution depending witch players used to form your team & how well they work together will determine your success. This I believe adds more depth to the game over any other 2-D & most 3-D fighters. Multiple teams endings, unlockable characters, & a challenge most add to its already immensce replay & its price point is a dream & a steal.
Got it today?
It's been over a month now, and hopefully they have it in today. I'm a KOF and SF Fan so what's problem with the game. The fighting generation is evolving and with Street Fighter VI and KOF XII coming out next year. ( CAPCOM VS. SNK 3 or even MARVEL vs. CAPCOM 3 *Just wishful guessing, but it would be tight to see something like that on announcement for next year)
Lets start with KOF is faster paced then SF, it also has a roll which SF never had, except in KOF and Street Fighter crossovers. Also KOF is 3 on 3 which opens many interesting and unique strategies that you can not have in SF. Last although SF started first in 1987 KOF has been around since 1991, technically fatal fury, which means its a long established title and although the fact it is a 2d fighter no aspect of kof is like sf.
STill waiting... Still waiting....
Alright... a couple things need to be put on the table here. First... For those comparing this to Street Fighter... why is it so hard for you to realize this is a totally different game. Different style and gameplay. Graphically the game hasn't changed since it came out. It really shouldn't have to. As long as the characters don't start being palette swaps I'm ok with them. The game itself has always played very well. I can't wait for this. Also, as much as I wish Gamestop wouldn't post up dates for games that they aren't sure about, when it comes to SNK games. It is only 50% their fault I would say. SNK is constantly having issues getting these games across and ported. The release dates that are posted (if not confirmed) are usually put up there to generate interest in the game. Thats all. Both sneaky tactics as well as smart tactics. This game as a whole will be great when it finally does come out (hopefully tomorrow). We'll see.
Don't come in here starting things.Play it first before you make your comments.The gameplay in XI is up there with CVS2 & 3S.Graphics are touched up from the older sprites and besides that XII will be completely redrawn when it comes out.People have a right to choose for themselves.
The dude below me is stupid
This is better than street fighter, this is the king of fighters and itz been thte best since 1994 (in my opinion). I cant wait 4 this to drop im going to cop it right away. Why play with ryu and ken when you can play with Kyo and Iori. This is the best looking 2d fighting game out so i dont know where u get the idea that this game looks awful.
Wait. Street Fighter bootleg? So, the 13 years of KOF and the fact that some of the characters have been around since oh, 1986 means nothing. No, it's not the prettiest game. But if that's your take I think you are missing the point.
I cant believe what i am seeing. It just looks like a bootleg street fighter game. I mean the graphics are discracefull and the characters just look terible. Do yourself a favor and do not get this game.
How many times are you guys going to continue to change the release dates and give us false information on the site and at your stores? Are you so incompetent that you are unable to give us the right information about a title? Or maybe its because its a "budget" title so it doesn't get your full attentiion? I'm getting very pissed off at your way of conducting business, gamestop.
