  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. Cheat Code Central

    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. 85
    Long-time fans of the KOF series may feel a bit cheated by the lack of a voice announcer and background animations.
  5. 80
    Regardless of your gaming background and preferences, KOF EX NeoBlood is an excellent fighting game and is definitely worth your time.
  6. Nintendo Power

    Just as fast, brutal, complex and fun as "Guilty Gear X." [June 2002, p.154]
  7. Pocket Games

    Exposes the likes of "Mortal Kombat Advance" for the shallow, poorly balanced rush-jobs they so obviously are. [Summer 2002, p.22]
  8. While the graphics and sound aren’t anything to write home about, the gameplay is solid.
  9. A fun action fighter game that does not live up to the name of King.
  10. AceGamez

    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.
