The legendary 3-on-3 fighting game series that united rival brawlers from SNK Playmore’s classic arcade franchises celebrates its 15th Anniversary in style with the release of The King of Fighters XII. For the first time in its history, this epic martial arts showdown has undergone a complete graphical overhaul. The antiquated character sprites used over the past 14 years have been dropped in favor of all-new, high-resolution fighters fluidly animating across painstakingly detailed, 100% hand-drawn backgrounds.

It's not perfect, but it's different
As a completionist, I had to get this game. After popping it in, I was quite shocked at the different movesets and smaller roster than the usual games. There's also no special intros like between Kyo & Iori or Kensou & Athena. With just a Time trial as the only mode, it felt like half a game. The AI isn't very smart, and I had to double-check the options to make sure I was playing at normal. Unlocking the galley and earning all the trophies will be hard. You'll probably spend hours & hours trying to get them. There's a lot I'm going to miss, but at least the background and sprites are pretty.

Got it cheap, but not excited
Got this game during the member's club discount and have to say this is one is a step down from previous KOF. The roster is so much smaller now like it's 94 all over again. But as a game itself it's still decent enough to keep me coming back and try out everyone in the roster.

King of little content
Not the longest game, a mash of previous versions but not really showing anyone new to the franchise why people love it. If you a hardcore KOF fan grab it, if you are just interested in good games, you could probably give this a miss.

I'm a KOF fan since KOF 94...
This game isn't the worst game off all, but isn't the best either...94, 95, 02, XII are the best...96, 97, 99, 01, 02, 03 are medium...98 and 00 are worst...
It has beatiful graphics, but only 5 arenas...only 22 fighters...a poor variety of special moves...doesn't have a history...and you only play 5 matches in a strange time trial mode (the "arcade" mode)...
Despite this, it's easy to play, easy to do combos and the "critical counter" is good to...
If you play only to play, it isn't very fun, because it takes only 10 minutes to clear the game...but the trophies are the real challenge and extends the play value until you conquer the platinum...
Finally, it's better than Street Fighter IV...
