    Good God, you've got a whole lot of fighters with new play mechanics. I know some KOF purists hate the Striker system, but I like it lots.
  2. If you're a hardcore "KOF" or SNK fan from way back, or a newbie willing to lick your chops and get into countless beatings in the name of learning something deep and gratifying within the 2D fighting genre, give "KOF: Evolution" some serious consideration.
  3. Unfortunately, KoF Evolution is a flawless port of an inherently disappointing game, which is why, through no fault of its own, it's otherwise difficult to recommend it over the previous game in the series.
  4. With dated graphics, no unlockable characters, and a "revolutionary" fighting engine that was new in the 20th century, there's no doubt that this game simply, is the Court Jester of Fighters.
