    good game, but needs online players

    I didn't really get to try 98 dispite all the praise, since i never became a kof fan until 2000. I am impressed and understand why so many hardcore fans consider it the best, but I think i prefer having tag team like in... Read Full Review

    One of my favourite Kof games for a long long time.

    Storyline-Not rated This game is a dream match. There is no storyline. However the characters still retain their relationships towards each other. You get to know who are friends and who are enemies when you choose y... Read Full Review
