    Orochi Saga felt right and I enjoyed revisiting some classic fighters.
  2. If you're an SNK devotee, you just can't miss this Collection: it offers five games perfectly emulated, lots of action and a solid gameplay. Fifteen years have passed since the first iteration in The King of Fighters series, so don't expect nothing more than a classic beat'em-up, with all the strength of its tradition.

    If you're looking for a bunch of good fighting games on Wii, get this collection, but due largely due to the fact it features one of the greatest fighters 2D of all time in KoF '98.

    It's fun, but for 30 quid, it's no bargain. [Apr 2009, p.87]
  5. All told, the Orochi Saga collection is a hands-down worthwhile buy for longtime fans of the series, and a toss-up for newcomers.
  6. In fact, that’s the real root of the problem with King of Fighters: The Orochi Saga. This series barely evolves at all, so this is a grouping of five versions of essentially the same game. Thus, it isn’t really for anyone but the super fans.
  7. So no version is perfect, but the faster loading makes the Wii version the best choice, provided you've got the right controllers on-hand.

    A mediocre compilation of five average games. [Apr 2009, p.59]
