    Easily one of the better fighting experiences I've had on any handheld in a long time. This even outclasses the PSP and DS's fighting game selection. The controls are tight, the fights are great fun and don't devolve into poke-and-run, and the characters are awesome. It's pretty cheap now, so if you like fighting games, buy it!

    A much better package than the first game,however,no release planned for Europe as far as i know,meaning it will be yet another SNK game destined for the gaming abyss.

    The fighting is absolutely mad-dog-howling good. [Mar 2004, p.93]
  2. The standard that subsequent fighting games published for the Game Boy Advance must meet or beat. It compromises nothing in delivering the arcade KOF experience to the palm of your hand.

    Overall, the single-player mode is a blast to play. The controls are fluid, the animations are entertaining, and the taunts are still over the top, as in the victorious declaration: "Invincibility! I am too uncanny!"
