The King of Fighters 2002 is really the reason to get this game, 2003 is OK and you do get a new story line for the franchise, but the game play is clearly better on 2k2. It's 2005 now and I'm still learning new ways to play, new combos are still being discovered. Playing against the computer gets dull rather quickly but when you play against another player, the fun goes for hours on end. The characters are all well balanced (except for Rugal) and there's always a way for one character to beat another. For all combo maniac it's a dream come true with the charging mode, witch with lots of practice you can discover lots of different combos for each character, making them even more deadly.
