King of Fighters XII Review


KOF is back and looking to take the crown of 2D fighting from SF.

Replay value is rather low, with nothing but achievements to unlock, most of which involve online play or some rather inane tasks. Nothing that really interests me, as I would have preferred unlockable characters or even new character outfits/colors. A...

King of Fighters XII


This year has been littered with fighting games and really, it is quite hard to pay proper attention and respect to all of them. Focus Cancels, Guard Libra Gauge, Ultra Combos, Critical Counters, frame data. All of these things are different from game...

If you were jazzed on the hype that King of Fighters XII initially had, calm down. This game has a pretty face, and that's about it. A competent fighting system with nothing else to offer makes for a pretty short and shallow experience.

King Of Fighters XII [Xbox 360, PS3]


I'm a massive admirer of 2D graphics. It angers me to no end when people see pixels and instantly assume the game looks bad because it isn't 3D or it's “not replicating real life.” It's for this reason alone I got into fighting games. Originally I...

The fighting system here is brilliant, deep and easy to get into with a lot to learn but not enough to overwhelm players ; Animations and sprites are simply stunning, from the characters right through to the backgrounds

Characters have been stripped down, from missing teams to lack of key moves in their moves list ; No mode outside of a shockingly short "arcade" mode, that resembles a poor time attack mode ; Online is broken and plainly doesn't work ; Severe lack of...

King Of Fighters XII is a disappointment of epic proportions, not only because the game is seriously lacking but because of what it promised and where it came from. Underneath an inexcusable lack of content in every area imaginable there is an amazing...

King of Fighters XII Review


This King won't knock Street Fighter IV from its throne.

Had SNK gone the extra mile with better online play and more fighters and modes, King of Fighters XII could've really gotten somewhere. As it stands, it's just another fighter that tries – and fails – to knock Street Fighter IV off its mighty throne.

King of Fighters XII


King of Fighters XII for PS3 Review - In the 90s, KOFXII would have been hailed as a brilliant fighting game. In 2009, in the post Street Fighter IV world, however, it has to go down as a disappointment.

Gorgeous animations

King of Fighters XII


Games Xtreme gets down and dirty with King of Fighters XII. Will this be the game that will revolutionise the series and add to the genre, or will the blows miss their mark by a mile.

If you’re a KoF fan or you’re looking for another brawler, then you can't go too far wrong with this one. However, be warned, online play is still like battling in a jar of treacle a lot of times.

King of Fighters XII


Calling yourself the 'KING' of fighters is a pretty bold claim - Jae puts the latest in the well known franchise to the test

A solid fighting mechanic within battles

Everything else

If you’re going to charge full price for a game it should be worth your money. Not just in the quality and length but also the performance. KOFXII disappointingly does none of these at a ‘bang for your buck’ manner. At it’s core the game is a solid...
