The King of Fighters XIII (Xbox 360)

 

When we last left The King of Fighters, things weren't looking good. The King of Fighters XII, which was released in 2009, looked beautiful and had a solid fighting system, but its dearth of single-player content and busted online functionally killed...

I fell madly in love with The King of Fighters XII the first time I played it. After slogging through the slow-paced, polygon-based KoF: Maximum Impact games, it was such a relief to see the series return to its roots. The game featured some of the...

KoF XIII is probably the best game of 2011 for die-hard fans of traditional 2D fighters. From the incredible graphics, to the deeply detailed and difficult-to-master drive cancel combos, to the invigorating options for rushdown and retreat that come...

Two years ago, KoF XII hit shelves and thoroughly disappointed long-time fans of the series. It wasn't a bad game in the traditional sense since it delivered the series' usual gameplay, and was in fact a gorgeous game since it was the first entry...

The discs themselves appear well-made, with nice art on each one - they certainly didn't cheap out on them. They're contained in their own folding sleeve, each with different art on it. The packaging looks great, although you have to carefully pull the...

I love a good fighting game. It's in my blood. Pulling off huge combos and mastering a character over the course of hours upon hours is my thing. I always look forward to the newest fighters. Learning the...

Fantastic game play & 2D visuals ; Deep customization & very accessible ; Great online play ; Full on story mode ; Just tons of stuff to do

Final boss in story mode is stupid hard ; No voice acting during story cut scenes ; No spectator mode

I love a good fighting game. It’s in my blood. Pulling off huge combos and mastering a character over the course of hours upon hours is my thing. I always look forward to the newest fighters. Learning the method and competing with other players is just...

From the ashes of its predecessor, The King of Fighters XIII rises to restore the series to its rightful place in the fighting genre spotlight.

Fluid and flexible fighting mechanics ; Impressive visuals and smooth animations ; Stable online play with replay support ; Numerous offline offerings ; Character color customization

Online spectating isn't an option ; Lacks replay sharing

Whether you're online or off, the game's presentation is simply gorgeous. The 2D character sprites fill up the screen with astonishing detail, such as the way their clothing flutters. The numerous stages are equally impressive--and infinitely more...

I know that the King of Fighters series has a long history and many old-school fans (this is the 13th iteration of the series, after all), but truth be told, this was my very first King of Fighters game. I wasn't completely ignorant of the series'...

The characters are all drawn in a semi-realistic anime style, having just enough realism to look human but cartoonish enough to justify the ridiculous actions they perform. As for the backgrounds, they do look quite beautiful, as the 2D drawings look...

The King of Fighters franchise returns for its 13th entry. Should you put your quarters up?

King of Fighters XIII is definitely an improvement over its predecessor. There are some new modes added in, and the online play (while still not without its issues) is vastly improved over over KOFXII's lag-filled multiplayer. However, there are still...

King of Fighters XIII addresses every problem KOF XII had and then some.

Overall, King of Fighters XIII is a very fun game to play. It has a lot of characters, an open combo system, and plenty of modes to keep you satisfied online or off. It certainly deserves to be checked out, but I have a sneaking suspicion it will be...

The King of Fighters XIII- Xbox 360

 

King Of Fighters XIII has always had a nichier market than Street Fighter, Tekken, or Mortal Kombat, and this iteration just shows that SDK is comfortable keeping it that way.
