  1. The best beat-’em-up you can get and it certainly puts "Tekken" in its place showing that 2D still rules the roost.
  2. A game that can take its place alongside Capcom's "Street Fighter II."
  3. Truly marvelous. Game Boy Advance owners take note: this is a must-buy fighting game.
  4. Exposes the likes of "Mortal Kombat Advance" for the shallow, poorly balanced rush-jobs they so obviously are. [Summer 2002, p.22]

    Regardless of your gaming background and preferences, KOF EX NeoBlood is an excellent fighting game and is definitely worth your time.
  6. While the graphics and sound aren’t anything to write home about, the gameplay is solid.
  7. 50
    My advice is to stick to a console version unless you really want an SNK game for the road, as there are several better choices for a fighting title on GBA than this.

    A beatiful game, although, lack of the combat announcer, and all the character voices. They should include the clasical KO of the announcer.
