The good:

-Character animations and movements are smooth and sweat.
-Critical counter system is a sweat addition.
-combos are well constructed.
-game runs at 1080p full HD.
-game is colourful and bright.
-Replay and saving your fights is very cool.
-versus mode is really cool , and a lot of fun playing with a friend offline
-Available japanese as well as english voices.

The bad:
-online play still lags even after the huge 770 mb patch.
-online is pretty dead with few players.
-the game feels incomplete and like an extended demo.
-the single player mode is know as time trail (are u kidding me)
-no story line whatsoever.
-no boss.
-fewer charcters than any other kof game in the series (only 22 characters and no K'.
-the should rename the online to be anger mode.


Do i recommend this game:
Maybe as a rental.
or to a kof fan only.

So... a game is just this bad because of the online play?

I never really liked playing KOF online, but it's kinda sad it was so incomplete... you gotta take into account that the sprites were hand-drawn and it would have taken years for them to add at least the full crew of past games...

Thanks for reading:

I mean when the single players take about 10 minutes to beat and there is not even one cutscene,
you gave to go play online only finding that there are no players anymore and the game lags a lot that you just have to quite.

I cant wait for KOF XIII though its a day 1 buy for me :D
