    Just when you thought SNK were doing epic works, they failed hard on this one & they're dying as a 2DFG franchise.

    Rated on August 11, 2009 by desperado2503

    Wow i'm speechless, KOF? I remember how awesome it was on the 90's, the mega cheap boss system SNK implemented so you spend your time mastering the game plus some hard combos... after KOF 99 things we...

    What just went wrong? SNK Playmore was doing a good job until this. Did they just got lazy or something?

    Let me make one thing clear, King of Fighter XII is not a bad game, its just dissapointing.

    King of Fighters XII is one of those games that you cant wait, for, but when you play you can already tell your going to get tired of it within 3 or so days. The good things about this game is that it...

    "No Mai, No Buy!"

    Rated on October 30, 2012 by PerryStudios

    "No Mai, No Buy!' Is a common quote from every single KOF fanboys. However, even Mai Shiranui isn't cast in this game. That doesn't stop hardcore KOF fans. KOF XII offers new spite graphics, gameplay,...

    KOF XII unfortunately leaves you feeling abused and betrayed

    Rated on November 22, 2009 by NECOthaHOUND

    Ok, the mere reason why I bought a PS3 was to get this game right here and Yakuza 3, if they ever bring it to the west. I bought KOF XII the every first day it hit stores, imagine my disappointment, ...

    Nice graphics, plays more like Street Fighter; but too short. No boss.

    Rated on June 25, 2009 by Darek_Khort

    Played the game in the arcade for a good few times now. I am an avid fan of the King of Fighters series, but KoF XII is a let-down. Yes, the characters are all hand-drawn, not pixel sprites like t...
