  1. One of the best 2D fighters ever made...It’s got everything you could want: nice graphics, spot on control, solid play mechanics, and it’s loads of fun to play. It’s nice to have a fighting game that requires some real strategy.

    Although most gamers can expect great 2D visuals from SNK, Mark Of The Wolves features some of the best 2D animation in a 2D fighting game.
  3. Aside from a few minor issues, it's an extremely good port of one of SNK's last great NeoGeo games and is itself one of the last great games for the Dreamcast.
  4. The appeal lies in stringing together simple moves into devastating combinations, not memorizing counterintuitive button sequences.
  5. Combined with razor-sharp controls, this is one of the fastest, most responsive fighting games I’ve ever played. [Jan 2002, p.232]
  6. The animation is fantastic especially considering this is a port coming off the decade old Neo Geo hardware.

    Even for an old game on an ancient system, MotW plays really nicely and is a lot of fun. Could use some more features, but it's still good.

    This is a great fighting game overall, but not enough options to keep me interested in the long run.

    The game has good graphics and good looking moves but it's not enough CHARACTERS or options to choose from, normally on Agetec supported games you can change your colors but you can't do that which is a blower. Expand

    A Neo Geo game, and it looks so good, damn!! SNK work their butt off. Well I wish more things were added to this game.
