  1. All in all, for a mere $30, whether on your PSP or PS2, The King of Fighters Collection: The Orochi Saga is a fantastic deal for a series of fantastic games.
  2. King of Fighters fans should definitely check out this solid fighting game collection.
  3. One of the best gaming compilations on the PS2. Period.
  4. At the end of the day, The King of Fighters Collection: The Orochi Saga for the PS2 ends up appealing only to those gamers who have no other way of playing the five games included in this compilation. A quirky default control scheme, numerous load screens, and some audio bugs will annoy those looking for arcade-perfect conversions of these games on their PS2s.
  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. Come on, SNK, stop churning out ports of stuff we've seen a million times, and give European fighter fans the game they really deserve.

    The lack of a versus mode is a gross oversight that makes versus battles an uncomfortable chore (the winner can't switch characters without resetting the entire game -- just like in the arcades!).

    This is a collection of the first five games. While not arcade perfect, it is a respectable emulation of the original Neo Geo classics. ExtraThis is a collection of the first five games. While not arcade perfect, it is a respectable emulation of the original Neo Geo classics. Extra content includes artwork and a music player. The PS4 port features 1080p resolution, two borders, scanlines and trophies. If you're new to the series, this package will serve as a great introduction. I would rate it with an 8 out of 10. Expand
