    On PlayStation 4 The King of Fighters XIV was impressive, and on PC it’s even more so. Being frank, I think it’s the best 2D fighter out there, all things considered.

    Don't let the weird presentation through you off on this one: King of Fighters XIV is the same great game that we all know and love. While the characters do look a lot less lifelike and their animation, particularly in cutscenes, can seem jaggy and stiff, the animation during battles and the awesome, fun and engaging gameplay more than makes up for it. It may not be one of the best entries, but it is worthy of its name.

    The smoothness of play and the multitude of fighters from which to choose provide a near excellent time. But, unless a friend’s available for a local versus match, or you’re willing to play online, the initial excitement diminishes after the fourth- or fifth-dozenth round — though this not atypical for the genre. Regardless, fighter-gamers amongst us will walk away satisfied from The King of Fighters XIV.

    I love this game. Its art style. Its music. Its characters. Its mechanics. Its contents. Its endings. After Smash Bros this is my favoriteI love this game. Its art style. Its music. Its characters. Its mechanics. Its contents. Its endings. After Smash Bros this is my favorite fighting franchise now. It has a lot of focus in movement and I like team based games. There are 58 characters now and all of them have a lot of depth. I cannot get enough of this game. Animations could be a little better in some moves but the the whole package is still amazing. Expand
