  • Summary: Originally crowned as a top contender in the fighting game genre with the release of KOF 98, this full upgrade to the second entry in the KOF Ultimate Match series, KOF 2002 is widely considered to be the ultimate KOF. Based on the KOF NESTS compilation originally released only in Japan, the game offers the series' largest selection of characters as well as an all new soundtrack and enhanced graphics. The game balance has been carefully retuned for the addition of new moves and recovery moves, making KOF 2002UM a heated battle on your Xbox 360 that never stops! Expand

    The King of Fighters 2002 Unlimited Match is quite retro from a technical standpoint and the 2D fighting genre has moved on to the next level, but for 800 Microsoft Points, you are getting the biggest and best playing The King of Fighters game ever made (period).

    Fighting games excel at rewarding player investment, and if you're willing to put in the time and give Ultimate Match a chance, you will not be disappointed.

    Just don't expect a welcome return after frolicking with today's less punishing fighters, because this KOF is far from forgiving.

    In terms of sheer amount of characters and stages, The King of Fighters 2002 Unlimited Match offers up the most comprehensive KOF title to date for an affordable price. Sadly, SNK's perpetually poor network code hinders online play and it lacks the Striker and Multi-Shift gameplay that would have made it a truly complete experience.

    Awesome remake of KOF2002. Don't know if it one ups 2002 Vanilla in every sense, still you gotta love the dedication SNK put into this game. I feel the aesthetics of KOF are one of the things that sets it apart from the competition and 2002UM is a great companion piece to the best in the series. Really wish the netcode and lobby system were great and sadly it falls short. Still KOF2002UM is a nice download if you enjoy fighting games. Expand
