Product Details:

With a roster featuring over 30 handdrawn and animated fighters, a number of detailed stages bursting with life, over a half dozen play modes, a refined fighting engine built for speed and complete with new moves and supers, a vastly improved Online mode, and a host of other additions, tweaks, and enhancements, THE KING OF FIGHTERS XIII represents a rebirth for one of gaming's longest tenured franchises and one of the most popular fighting brands ever.

With the triumphant return of fan favorite characters like K', Mai, and Vice, extensive refinement of the core fighting engine based on community feedback, and vastly improved network functionality, THE KING OF FIGHTERS XIII represents the HD entry in the series that fans have been waiting for. Painstaking effort has been made to address every last concern following the last entry: fights play faster; the addition of over a half dozen play modes offers variety and replayability; the game's beautifully rendered and animated character sprites are better distinguished from the backgrounds - which happen to be richer and more detailed; the camera perspective is less restricted; fighters have more moves, including new supers and the allnew NEOMAX supers; and much, much more!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Plays Well King Of Fighters was one of the best 2d fighting games around in the 90's. When they made maximum impact in 2002 and maximum impact 2 in 2006 they want to make it 3d which the game looked BAD but it was good. When they hit KOF 12 they put the original 2d graphics but didn't please as much fans and had dissapointing reviews. Lastly when they made KOF 13 with improved gameplay and multiplayer people knew it was going to be good plus it has favorable reviews. Here are the Goods and Downfalls Goods: + Amazing Gameplay + Perfect 2D Graphics + Has a convincable Story + Lots of Fun! Downfalls: - Short Story - Multiplayer Lags - Cheap Final Boss Final Score 8 out of 10! Final Speech: King Of Fighters 13 is definetly a great game even better than 12. Though despite the few downfalls KOF 13 should enjoy you for everything.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from the best KOF yet Large selection of characters and modes, the best 2D fighter since Super Street Fighter. This holds its own with the competition, and is highly polished!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from In the words of M. Bison: YES! YES! Gonna be short and sweet with this one, gameplay is classic King of Fighters goodness but still accessible to players. Of course there is one flaw in this game, overpowered bosses which are just a staple of SNK but I feel Ash Crimson is too overbalanced being that his projectiles and flames can cover 90% of the board. You can beat him though, he's just as frustrating as Gill. Graphics are amazing and I love the backgrounds though at the same time none were as breathtaking as one in King of Fighters 12 which I think had the best backgrounds of all time even though there were few of them. Character roster, while not breaking the barrier, is still large and with fan favourites. There are multiple modes, decent tutorial though I will say that STXT currently has the best tutorial i've experienced. Online isn't the best though at the end of hte day I have enough friends to fight against. Also, you may still find the versions with the 4-Disk CD for free with it. So go and buy this.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is the KOF I know This game is fantastic. Over 30 characters, 18 stages, tons of modes, awesome soundtrack, and amazing graphics. The gameplay feels very smooth and natural. All the characters feel very balanced. The stages just look awesome and theres lots of detail in them. I love how all the characters have written dialogue in arcade mode it makes each playthrough feel different than the last. In character select you also have 10 preset colors for each character or you can create up to 5 of your own. There is lots of replay value in this game for the offline player and the online as well. If you want a true classic fighter and replay value this is it. If you felt burned by KOF XII dont worry this game runs circles around it and then some!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Forget Street Fighter In 2D fighting right now it does not get any better than this. KOF always had appealing characters and a good gameplay but this one is REALLY good. more than 30 characters, some new game mechanics make this game a must have. The only con would be that depending on your opponent's and your connection, online matches might lag but that is not just this game many other games have a similar issue so I wouldn't be really worried about that.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from King of Fighters XIII with a Flawless comeback! I saw this game thinking it was going to be like the previous one but when i saw the amount of characters and the fact that they added the classic Iori made it much better.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from KOF returns in fine form 2D fighting fans have a lot to be excited about with The King Of Fighters 13--it's an impressive return to form for the series. Many characters and features that were missing in 12 have been added back here. As in KOF 12, the backrounds and fighter animations don't disappoint. The foreground spites have been shrunk down significantly...but I assume this is to keep things running at optimal speed, so it's an acceptable sacrifice. There are still some things lacking from this latest KOF outing, though...such as new characters. Saiki is the only truely new playable character, and many of the fresh faces from KOF 11 are still absent (unless they show up later as DLC). Also, a 3 on 3 tag mode ala KOF 11 would have been nice; you still pick a team of 3 here, but you have to progress through the match elimination style. Then there's the issue of online play: The netcode has been greatly improved over KOF 12, but it's far from perfect--so expect some laggy matches. All in all, The King Of Fighters 13 is definitely an improvement over 12 and a solid addition to any 2D fighting fan's collection. Just don't hold your breath for smooth online play.
