A huge addition to this game is a Counter System. Hit L2 while standing to counter high attacks, or while crouched to counter low attacks. These will basically, block and stun the enemy unit for a split second allowing you just enough time to attack him. I did not find myself using it very much, since the game is so fast paced, it is extremely hard to counter and attack. Overall the battle system works great. You can fight using just combination attacks, special moves, or a mixture of both.
A total of 38 characters to choose, from most of which you have to unlock along with over 15 costumes per characters, make each fight different. The addition of Billy Kane and Kula brought back some of the best characters to tournament.Read more ›
P.S. Games like these, which require a lot of button mashing, (especially the DBZ fighting games, Streetfighter games, etc) I notice that your finger for the direction pad is going to get heavily fatigued while playing, expect soreness and calouses to develop. My solution to this problem, is for you to wear some cloth/cotton gloves while playing this game. It will keep your finger from pain and it will help you to be more smoother during input for supermoves, because the cotton surface of the gloves will glide smoothly over the direction pad allowing you extended gameplay during the intense combat sessions. You can thank me for this, by giving this review a good rating :-)
I'm sure other reviews have touched on all that.
As a long time fan of these SNK characters, my favorite part of this game is the dialogue and character interactions that actually take place between fights. Never before and never since have you seen the King of Fighters characters portrayed as so...real. Depending on the match-up, you're treated to a little pre-fight conversation, like Geese vs Billy Kane, Mai vs B.Jenet, Iori vs Kyo, Terry vs Ryo, etc. There are a lot of them.
And, then there are the mid boss fights and endings, which display each character's personality to a degree we don't get to see very often.
There are even some special character specific win poses.
It's a very character driven experience, that transcends any other 2D KOF game.
Perhaps the most unappreciated aspect of this game. I'd recommend it for fans of these characters.
(Oh, and don't worry, you can choose English or Japanese with subtitles)

*My only complaint is that the disk was loose in the case. But over all the game works fine.
