The Dream Match of the dream match
In a previous review, I've said that KOF XI is the best KOF to date. Well, now I'm forced to change this opinion. KOF'98 UM takes this title, and that's it.

The most incredible cast in any fighting game (and not only KOF), amazing 2D and 3D backgrounds, a more-than-complete soundtrack with arrange option, wonderfull controls. Need more? Color Edit mode, challenging missions, different bosses to fight according to your perfomance. Want to fight some simple vs matches, but don't have nobody to fight with? No problem, fight against CPU.

Take it, and take it NOW. The rest... are just the rest.

The King of Fighters ’98 Ultimate Match
A classic 2D three on three versus fighting game enlivened with several additions to the already extensive options in the original game system. More refined then it’s predecessors, yes, there where more successors to the original. The original is also included in this version. If you do not like three on three, there is also an one on one mode.

In the majority of the world this game has been overshadowed by the versus fighting games from Capcom. While they also have good games and a classic is going to be revamped in the form of “Super Street Fighter II Turbo HD Remix”, those games will appeal to the masses by name alone. Please give “The King of Fighters ‘98 Ultimate Match” a chance.

SNK delivered the solid game system in the forms of “Advanced Mode” (reward) and “Extra Mode” (risk). These systems decide the basic options your chosen characters will have. This version has “Ultimate Mode” where you can mix and match the options from the two earlier systems. A roster of sixty-four characters will keep you quite busy. SNK Playmore was smart enough to not just port it out.

Instant active and counter-active action is set to an higher level with the many Guard Cancel options it has to offer. Which means when you let your character defend itself, you can take instant counter-action instead of waiting on the opponent to get tired or make a mistake.

The intricacy of the game system is very adventurous. The game is a participant for “Tougeki Super Battle Opera 2008”. It is that good. I wish it was in the “World Cyber Games”.

The only thing that I find regrettable is that the online option is for Japan only. They should make it worldwide. They could make a self-host system.
Where one player hosts and someone else joins. And that even when you are hosting , your able to join someone. Sadly to say that this will be a point of downfall for the game.

If you like versus fighting games, this is a must have.
It is one of the most complete 2D versus fighting game in existence.
If you do not like versus fighting games, please try it.
It is a proven concept that aged well for almost ten years. The ten years of experience are put in to this game.

Good game
The game is definitely tournament ready. Playmore did the best they could on this one but the game is only slightly more balanced than before. Iori and EX Geese are tops. EX mode grabs should take priority since you can't throw evade. They shouldn't have added a waiting period between supers when bar is flashing. SNKP still didn't get it balanced across the board. It's a fun game nonetheless, but I wouldn't agree with the other user saying 98's the best. I think XI is SNK's finest attempt to date. To mate w/ UM's backgrounds, they should have cleaned up the graphics like ReBout.
